Why do we have an unconstitutional national police force? Why aren't local cops making the arrests? Why are bank robberies Federal crimes, if they don't cross State borders?
Good questions, every one.

A FedGov lawyer would tell you, with a straight face:
Because the money in the banks crosses borders.
Because the suspect might have recently crossed a border.
Because the jurisdiction here is well inside the lines by precedent (i.e. other outrages are even worse so leave us alone about this one).
