KENDALL COFFEY:

“Instead of judicial process and a court order, what we saw was a host of men with machine guns in an unprecedented use of force against an unarmed home.”



 

 

Kendall Coffey is a former federal prosecutor:

“Plenty of prosecutors would have seen this as a misdemeanor case. Instead you got four serious felonies charges and a huge exposure to prison time if the defendant is convicted. ...
