Good evening. And it's great to have you with us as we near the end of another trying week here in America, a week of pain, a week of tributes, but also a week when so many have said, perhaps -- perhaps we are at a turning point. Tonight, new and difficult images here. Protesters and police treatment, demanding justice after the death of George Floyd. This troubling moment overnight in Buffalo. Officers knocking over a 75-year-old demonstrator. Two officers now suspended and the fallout from that -- 57 officers resigning from that assignment. New cases coming to light in the weeks before George Floyd's death. In Sarah Sota, a man seen kneeling on a man's neck. He's on leave. In March, police investigating this Facebook video, a takedown now ruled a homicide. The man reportedly yelling there, I can't breathe as well, before he died. Protests across the country, this is rockville, Maryland. In Los Angeles tonight, the protests. They are planned for the weekend across the country in so many places.

Reporter: And tonight, incidents before George Floyd's death now under investigation. You got your knee on my man's neck, man. Reporter: In Sarasota, this officer on leave after these images surfaced showing him kneeling on a man's neck in may. And in Tacoma, Washington, police responding to a call back this incident.
