Dozens, including Cole family, fight citations issued during Wauwatosa protests

WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The family of a man killed by former Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah appeared in court Thursday, Dec. 10.

Members of Alvin Cole's family were among more than a dozen protesters cited during unrest earlier this year.

The city put a curfew in place after the decision not to charge Mensah back in October.

Cole's mother and two sisters took part in the protests that followed.

The Cole family lawyer wants the citations thrown out, saying the curfew was an illegal order.

The judge would not throw out the citations, and not guilty pleas were entered.
