@bronx163 I know you think I pick on you, but you're so contradictory. You should be 100% behind states' rights.

Some states are anti cop.

And so on. State Attorney Generals and local da’s can not be trusted to put cop killers to death. Thats a fact. Just look at the DA in florida who had to be removed from cop killer case and was still able to get cop killer off capital crime charge.

Making cop killing a federal crime is not invading sttes rights. Terrorism is a federal crime so should killing a cop.
