Federalizing local vandalism

Now we learn: No suspects in animal rights attack, FBI brought into investigation

This seems contradictory. The local constabulary has named no suspects in the door banging, occupant abuse at the home of a university cancer researcher who kills rats for a living. Yet, the the FBI has stepped in to see if the incident is connected to a federal court order from LA barring particular animal rights groups from confronting University of California researchers.

Isn't LA in the state of California? How does this become a federal concern? Has Homeland Security raised its ugly head in California? Perhaps writing in chalk on the sidewalk and pounding on doors is the Homeland equivalent of blowing up office towers and warships?

The phrase "grasping at straws" comes immediately to mind, especially as regards budget justification for bloated government agencies.

"There must be an enemy around here somewhere..."
