Sylvester- Three Sylvester police officers remain suspended with pay after a man died in their custody.

Herman Jackson died during an arrest February 20th. Many people in Sylvester say the officers should be fired. Several spoke to the city council tonight.

"These police officers in Sylvester have been brutal. I have not heard anything concerning them reading Miranda Rights," said Reverend Judy Hall. "This man's rights have been violated, along with other people over the years."

The GBI's preliminary investigation showed the officers did not use excessive force during Jackson's arrest. The case will be heard by a grand jury March 22.
