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.

    Craig Northcott is an abomination, Kannesha Nept is as well. Both perjured themselves. The state of Tennessee is unwilling to hear my statement regarding this miscarriage of justice. I have both written and signed evidence and a video. They don’t want to even acknowledge the fact that disgraced, former officer Nept lied on more than one occasion and that there exist people in the coffee county jail who don’t belong there.

    This man has been entrusted to uphold the laws of this land. However, his refusal to do so in favor of his own personal beliefs make to so he is no longer qualified to do so.

    He’s has now refused to prosecute the cyber bullying of an lgbt teen, Channing Smith, who then shot himself. This sets a dangerous precedent and he doesn’t deserve the office if he’s refuses to follow the law. He can’t pick and choose who he prosecutes for crimes based solely on his belief system

    Whether or not he sees an LGBTQIA+ marriage as valid is irrelevant, assault is assault and he is not being an impartial judge by letting opinions like that affect the punishment he gives to perpetrators of domestic violence.

    No one with the mindset that any group should not be protected by the laws of this state, or, this country, should hold a position of this stature. Equal protection for all. He must resign now.

    As a born and raised Tennesseean of 63 years, this guy should be investigated and probably litigated.
