Alongside Alvin Cole’s mother and his three sisters, Jay-Z and Team Roc, which is the social justice team of Roc Nation, paid the bounds for a few more protestors arrested on Thursday (October 9) at Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
The demonstrations were ignited by the fact that Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm came with the announcement on Wednesday (October 8). DA John Chisholm revealed that Officer Mensah, who shot and killed the 17-years-old Alvin, will not be fired. Even more, the police officer will not face any charges for the murder.
