In August, Alderman was shot and killed by officers at a Oildale Subway restaurant where the police were in the area responding to an unrelated call when they saw what they thought was a burglary.
That's when BPD officers spotted Alderman leaving through a broken glass door holding a tire jack that resembled a gun.
Dozens came out on Friday in front of BPD headquarters chanting in unison and in support of Alderman and his family.
Alderman's family says they couldn't comment in detail about the claim but they did say that they want justice for their family
BPD officials did not want to comment on the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, the family says they will be protesting until they get the justice they are looking for.
