The federal government generally won’t get involved with kidnapping cases unless other crimes related to the kidnapping occurred. For example, if a RICO case involves kidnapping, then the federal government would step in. As soon as a crime occurs across state lines, the federal government has jurisdiction over the case. The federal government is better equipped to deal with interstate and international crimes because state governments only have authority within one particular state.
