Call on the Coffee County DA to Resign

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott has made anti-Muslim statements and said that he does not treat LGBTQ people experiencing domestic violence the same as other survivors.  He can no longer effectively serve the people of Coffee County or the thousands of people who visit Coffee County each year for Bonnaroo.

We call on Craig Northcott to resign the office of District Attorney for Coffee County.  His anti-Muslim statements and his admission that he does not treat LGBTQ domestic violence cases with respect are disqualifying for office.  He must step down so that the people of Coffee County can be served by a District Attorney who will apply the law according to the principle of equal protection.

    To continue employment of this monster is the same as supporting him and his hatred and ignorance . He should have been fired immediately!

    You must step down. You have the right to say and believe what you want – but there are consequences. You cannot be effective with core beliefs like this. Jesus loved EVERYone. You are a hypocrite and need to go.

    This vile person uses the Bible and God to spread hate going so far as to call for the advocation of harm for the very people he was sworn to protect and now they want to send him home with a pension and gun so he can bring his teachings to life. I and the rest of the LGBTQ community deserve better than this. Can you imagine if it was a Gay preacher calling for the extermination of straight people? This community would want to drag them into the town square and stone him. Also, the “he can’t be fired because it’s freedom of speech” doesn’t hold up when it’s someone whose job puts a firearm in his hands and will allow him to further his harm, nor does it cover someone who refuses to do his job as he has publicly stated he would not and does not do (protect LGBT folks). Fire his ass before he becomes the next active shooter and ya’ll end up with serious blood on your hands.

    Grew up in Knox County, and lived most of my life in TN. I have always been proud of my TN heritage, but am terrified by the extremists overtaking the normal, loving and truly hospitable people of TN!

    My son lives in TN and these incidents make us want him to flee for his safety. We’re born & bred Tennesseans and we’re ashamed of our home state. Absolutely horrified and ashamed.
