A newly discovered video shows a Middle Tennessee prosecutor stating that, if gay people in his district end up being victims of domestic violence, they should not expect him to use the state's domestic violence laws to protect them, NewsChannel5 reports. The prosecutor, Craig Northcott of Coffee County, has faced scrutiny since he was named special prosecutor three weeks ago to review whether House Speaker Glenn Casada's office tried to set up an African-American protester. Previously, Northcutt came under fire for suggesting that Muslims have no constitutional rights.
