Neither of the Coweta Co., Georgia sheriff's deputies has been fired; in fact neither has even been suspended.
“For four minutes and 10 seconds after he said ‘I quit,’ they still tased him and kept him on the ground,” he added. “That’s torture, and they killed him.”
Mr. Sherman’s death was initially investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, which made the evidence it collected available to the district attorney of Coweta County, Peter J. Skandalakis.
Mr. Stewart said the prosecutor’s office told him this week that the deputies had not been suspended and were still working.
