"Justice For Mercedes"

Wary about tacking on fifty years to a state life sentence (not a big fan of that by itself for someone under 30) for a heinous murder of a trans teen. The teen received "justice" there and this is a form of gratuitous double jeopardy in the form of a message by the feds. Such laws are best left to when states somehow cannot or do not have suitable prosecutions. Be clear the person pleaded guilty last December. This wasn't much of a trans right moment for Sessions/Trump. The heavy sentence makes it not free from problems even on that level.
