Ok, so explain this to me. The dude beats a guy bad enough that the victim has brain damage and he only gets four months in Federal prison? Seems like he should get way more time than that.

There is ample precident for charging and convicting a crime in Federal court and prosecuting the same crime in state court. Usually the state court proceedings is first and Federal comes after.

If the crime didn't happen on reservation land, then the state ought to go after him.
