The feds didn't step in, for instance, when dozens of cops were under investigation for sexting and having sex with an underage girl in Oakland, California. prosecutors have been big lately on exercising jurisdiction over both social media and sexting, and these have also been the subject of much attention in Congress lately.
Or when a Chicago cop was arrested for trafficking a 14-year-old. All of this helps suggest the decision to make this a federal matter is based more on opportunism and political agendas than the severity of O'Kimosh's crime or his threat to the public.
She accused principal Steve Dorcely of a coverup by not aggressively investigating the hack and harassment involving 12th-grade students about to graduate. One theory is that someone accessed the Facebook message from that phone.
“The very fact that it took five days for the school to report the incident, and knowing they never interviewed any staff or students and did not conduct a proper investigation, makes me fearful to return to work because my own administration and deans are not there to protect me,” Costa said. Costa says she doesn’t recall using social media from a school computer.

Costa filed a complaint with the police on June 20, on the advice of the teachers union.
She said cops labeled it an “aggravated harassment” case. “I felt helpless and victimized.” Costa also said she received harassing emails following the hack.
Author Dr Laura Widman, from North Carolina State University, said: 'Results of this study confirm that parent-adolescent sexual communication is a protective factor for youth, and a focus on communication remains justified in future intervention efforts.
'Across more than three decades of research and 25,314 adolescents, this meta-analysis suggests that communication with parents - particularly among mothers and girls - has a protective effect on adolescent contraceptive and condom use.'Further research using more sophisticated assessments, longitudinal designs, and mixed-methods approaches are needed to advance this literature and to better understand the effect parents have on the health of their adolescents.
Or in the recent case of a Bronx officer arrestd for paying to make sex tapes with a minor. The federal government has been exercising increasing control over sex-crime-related matters of all sorts lately.
But getting the feds involved in cases like these is generally an awful idea (though O'Kimosh's position as a cop on a tribal reservation may have posed some special considerations here).
She thinks it’s odd that someone would dredge up a message from 17 months ago, and isn’t ruling out that one or more school staffers may have been involved in the smear.
