Broward teen slammed by deputies leads rally to denounce police brutality

Weeks after his head was slammed against pavement by a Broward Sheriff’s deputy, Delucca “Lucca” Rolle joined chants denouncing police brutality.

The 15-year-old student at J.P. Taravella High School helped lead a nearly 100-person march Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, which was at least the second demonstration since the April 18 incident that sparked outrage across the country.

“Our voices will be heard, and justice will be served,” Rolle, joined by his mother Clintina, chanted with the crowd.

About a half dozen Fort Lauderdale police cars escorted the demonstrators as they marched down Sistrunk Boulevard to the New Mount Olive Baptist Church.

“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.”
