"A special prosecutor has been appointed to investigate. It's this guy."

WashedUpPsychoHat Retweeted

Best part of this story: The Tennessee house speaker recently resigned, and he and his staff are being investigated for possibly framing a black activist. A special prosecutor has been appointed to investigate. It's this guy.

P.S.: He hates Muslims too!

This story is receiving national attention because of this DA’s explicit anti-LGBTQ bias. But it should also receive attention because of what it tells us about the power of prosecutors everywhere.

1. Nearly 200 Attorneys in Tennessee Calling for Investigation into Coffee Co. District Attorney

A video was posted online earlier this week by the political website TNHoller.com of Northcott speaking at a religious conference in 2018. In the video, Northcott is speaking to a group and says that if there is domestic violence in a marriage involving a gay couple, he would not prosecute it as domestic violence because he does not recognize the marriage.
In Tennessee, domestic violence crimes carry heavier, more serious penalties than other assaults.
Northcott added in the video from last year, “social engineers on the Supreme Court decided we now have homosexual marriage, and I disagree with them.”
Northcott was also questioned last month for a Facebook comment he made about Muslims, saying that Islam is “evil, violent and against God’s truth.”
