Dash cam shows moments leading up to deputy-involved shooting
Handfuls of white balloons floated into the sky above Provost Park in Cocoa Saturday afternoon. Just moments before they were being held by the families and friends of A.J. Crooms and Sincere Pierce, the two teenagers shot and killed by a Brevard County Sheriff’s Office deputy Nov. 13.
The deaths of 18-year-old Pierce and 16-year-old Crooms have sparked anger and protest locally amid the nationwide debate over policing in America.
National figure and civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump came to Brevard County Saturday, and along with his co-counsel Natalie Jackson, spoke to the media and supporters of the families, saying that he would be seeking justice for the teens.
