38 year old, former army veteran, Gregory Edwards was arrested on December 9th, of 2018, outside of a Walmart while having a PTSD- related psychotic break.

His wife, nine months pregnant at the time, notified the officers that Gregory was mentally unstable at the time of his arrest.

While in police custody Gregory was beaten,tased, maced, and restrained in a chair and left in a locked room by himself.

Officers arrived back to the locked room 16 minutes later, and found 38 year old Gregory Edwards unresponsive.

Paramedics later arrived and Edwards was transported to the hospital, where he was removed off of life support the next evening.

Edwards autopsy ruled that his death was in the manner of an “accident”. The autopsy stated that the cause of death as “excited delirium and complications” due to “hyperactive and violent state with subsequent restraint,” 

Gregory’s death was not an “accident” and was done deliberately. The proper protocol should have been taken for a man that was clearly mentally unstable.

Gregory’s death needs to be properly investigated and those involved need to be held accountable!

 

        JUSTICE FOR GREGORY EDWARDS!
