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.

    What kind of Christianity does this man practice? What is his legal basis for discrimination?

    This is unconstitutional, people are people regardless of who they date or worship and should be treated equally.

    As witnessed by your own words, Coffee County D.A. Northcott, you are unable to uphold the spirit of the U.S. Constitution, specifically the tenet that all are equal under the law. Your actions and statements give Tennessee a black eye, and justifiably leave Coffee County citizens concerned that both their civil rights and just application of the law will be disregarded by you in favor of your bigotry.

    This type of discrimination has no place in our judicial system or our state. The people of Coffee County should be served by a District Attorney who will apply the law according to the principle of equal protection

    Anyone elected to office to uphold the legal rights of ALL citizens is obligated to ensure rules of law are appropriated and applied equally for everyone – not just those thought to be worthy. If the Coffee County DA cannot apply the law equally to all citizens, he must resign or face disbarment. The law equally applies to everyone!
