The funny part of the Michigan ones are that they were a lot of folks who are from South Florida.

Although I suppose these cases keep a bunch of prosecutors and defense lawyers employed, this is not something to be proud of. It is sad and troubling.

The fact that EDNY and SDNY are not there suggests to me that they are not putting resources into it.
