ALL OF THIS IS TAKING PLACE
AGAIN AS POLICE TRIED TO CLEAR
THE STREETS.
>> OVERNIGHT, ACROSS THE
COUNTRY, THE CALLS FOR JUSTICE
ARE GROWING MORE INTENSE.
IN ATLANTA, WHERE PROTESTERS
FILLED THE STREETS, SMOKE
BILLOWED INTO THE SKY AS A
POLICE CAR WENT UP IN FLAMES.
NEARBY, CROWDS SET THEIR SIGHTS
ON THE CNN CENTER, VANDALIZING,
THEN BREAKING IN.
ALL THIS DESPITE AN IMPASSIONED
PLEA FROM ATLANTA'S MAYOR TO
STOP THE VIOLENCE.
>> GO HOME.
YOU'RE NOT HONORING A LEGACY OF
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. AND THE
CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.
IF YOU WANT CHANGE IN AMERICA,
GO AND REGISTER TO VOTE.
>> AS THE SUNSETS, THE
DESTRUCTION SPREADS.
>> THIS IS THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL
HALL OF FAME.
IT'S A POPULAR MUSEUM IN THE
HEART OF DOWNTOWN ATLANTA.
OVER HERE BEHIND ME, YOU CAN SEE
CENTENNIAL OLYMPIC PARK.
THE HOME OF THE '96 OLYMPICS.
IN THE MIDDLE OF IT ALL, A
POLICE VEHICLE.
>> NEARBY, TWO CARS WERE ABLAZE
FOR MORE THAN AN HOUR AS
OFFICERS FIRED TEAR GAS WORKING
TO CLEAR THE AREA.
ALL JUST HOURS AFTER WHAT
STARTED AS A PEACEFUL PROTEST
OVER THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD.
HIS FINAL MOMENTS CAPTURED ON
VIDEO, AN OFFICER'S KNEE ON HIS
NECK.
>> WHEN YOU SAW THE VIDEO, WHAT
DID YOU THINK?
>> THAT COULD BE MY FATHER, THAT
COULD BE MY BROTHER THAT, COULD
BE ME.
IT JUST HAPPENED TOO MANY TIMES.
>> MORE TENSE CLASHES AROUND THE
COUNTRY, INCLUDING THIS STANDOFF
AT THE BARCLAYS CENTER IN
BROOKLYN, WHERE A POLICE CAR
BURNED AND OFFICERS PEPPER
SPRAYED THE CROWD.
>> DEMONSTRATIONS TURNED DEADLY
WHEN SOMEONE FIRED SHOTS INTO A
CROWD KILLING A 19-YEAR-OLD MAN.
POLICE WERE NOT INVOLVED.
>> IN LOUISVILLE, REELING OVER
THE DEATH OF 26-YEAR-OLD BRIANNA
TAYLOR KILLED BY POLICE OFFICERS
AS THEY SERVED A NARCOTICS
WARRANT.
>> DIRECTLY AT US.
>> NBC AFFILIATE REPORTER CAME
UNDER FIRE FROM POLICE.
>> SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA
PROTESTERS FLOODING A FREEWAY,
SMASHING WINDOWS WITH DRIVERS
STILL INSIDE BEFORE CLASHING
WITH POLICE.
AND CINCINNATI, WHERE PROTESTERS
STORMED THE AREA'S JUSTICE
CENTER.
CALLS FOR JUSTICE ECHOING
THROUGH CITY AFTER CITY WHILE,
AMID THE ESCALATING TENSIONS,
MANY ARE HOPING THE MESSAGE DOES
NOT GET LOST.
>> IT KEEPS HAPPENING.
NO MATTER WHAT'S DONE, NO MATTER
HOW MANY PROTEST, IT KEEPS
HAPPENING.
IT'S GETTING SEEN MORE.
>> Reporter: GUYS, OVERNIGHT, AS
WE WERE STANDING OUT HERE FOR
HOURS, WE DID SEE A NUMBER OF
PEOPLE GET ARRESTED.
AT LEAST TWO ARRESTS.
WE KNOW OF SEVERAL MORE THAT
HAPPENED OVERNIGHT.
I NEED TO PUT THIS INTO CONTEXT.
THE CITY OF ATLANTA, ESPECIALLY
THE MAYOR AND POLICE CHIEF,
HESITANT TO USE ANY SORT OF
CONFRONTATIONAL FORCE.
ATLANTA IS THE BIRTHPLACE OF THE
CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, THE HOME
OF THE PEACEFUL PROTEST.
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. WAS
BORN HERE.
YOU COULD HEAR THE PASSION IN
THE MAYOR'S VOICE WHEN SHE SPOKE
LAST NIGHT.
TAKE A LOOK.
>> WHEN I HEARD THERE WERE
RUMORS ABOUT VIOLENT PROTESTS IN
ATLANTA, I DID WHAT A MOTHER
WOULD DO.
I CALLED MY SON AND I SAID WHERE
ARE YOU?
I SAID, I CANNOT PROTECT YOU AND
BLACK BOYS SHOULDN'T BE OUT
TODAY.
>> Reporter: AND AS YOU HEARD
THE MAYOR AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE
