Eurie Martin (Sandersville, GA) was a 58-year-old man with psychiatric disabilities. On July 7, 2017, he was taking a long walk when someone called the police on him because they thought he was suspicious. Police officers arrived and tried to arrest him even though he had broken no laws. They tased him for a prolonged period until he died. The police officers, Henry L.
