Protesters go home after the fourth night of demonstrations in Wauwatosa



A fourth night of police protests in Wauwatosa against the death of 17-year-old Alvin Cole ended peacefully as most of the protesters dispersed as police moved in to enforce a curfew. The curfew started at 7 p.m. and by 8 p.m. most of the protesters went home. The protest on Saturday began in Washington Park in Milwaukee. Several dozen protesters marched west in Wauwatosa and met with several hundred other protesters at City Hall. The demonstrations have been going on since Wednesday when Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm released officer Joseph Mensah in Cole’s death outside Mayfair Mall in February. “We as Tosans are coming out tonight to join them,”

; said Joseph Kraynick, who lives in Wauwatosa. “And some kind of test to see how the police, as people from ‘Tosa, will react if we don’t go to the curfew?” The police kept their distance as the curfew came and went, and protesters moved around the intersection Wauwatosa Avenue and Occupy North Avenue. Around eight o’clock, police and National Guard troops in riot gear moved in next to heavily armored vehicles. Officers over loudspeakers warned protesters that they were breaking the curfew. Then the protesters decided to leave and walked the sidewalk east of Wauwatosa. A couple of people decided to stay and the police could be seen making arrests. It appeared to be a much quieter night than Friday, when police used tear gas and pepperballs and arrested 28 people.
