Florida Residents March For #JusticeForLucca
Delucca “Lucca” Rolle was pepper-sprayed, punched and had his head slammed against the pavement by Broward County police last month and the people in his hometown have not stopped fighting on his behalf and on behalf of millions of Black folks who have been abused by police.
According to Sun-Sentinel, over one hundred people joined the 15-year-old to march for the criminal prosecution of the two officers who attacked him. The white sheriffs, Deputy Christopher Krickovich and Sgt. Greg LaCerra, have been suspended by Sheriff Greg Tony but that ain’t really good enough.
“We will not stop until those officers are fired and charged,” Broward/Fort Lauderdale NAACP president Marsha Ellington said. “We will remember the choices [Tony] makes when it comes to justice for Lucca.”
Yolanda Daley, a parent attending the rally, made a good point about the way the “justice system” handles these situations.
“No one else should be able to do that and get away with it,” Daley said. “If a parent can’t do that, there’s no way that another human being can take my child and do them that way.”
A parent is 100% going in prison for doing this to their child.
Travon Martin’s mother was also on hand and had this to say:
“Our children’s lives matter. No one seems to understand that but us,” Fulton said. “So we have to fight for our children.”
We can only hope that a prosecutor sees this case a clear cut criminal act and treat it accordingly.
