Kindlon, who spoke for more than 22 minutes outside Troop G headquarters Wednesday afternoon, has represented the Hussain family in the aftermath of the crash. Kindlon said he, as well as his client and family, have received the death threats in recent days.
“This is something that I’ve fought for,” Kindlon said, highlighting his 18 years of service in the Marine Corps. “So all these people who want to lob death threats from afar just because my clients may be Muslim-American or just because 20 people are dead today, I want to look at you directly and say, ‘That’s disgusting! How dare you!’ That is not the way that we are supposed to act in a civilized society.”
