Nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice were largely peaceful on Thursday, with many cities lifting their curfews to reflect the calmer demonstrations. It's now just past 11:30 p.m. in Los Angeles, but in many major cities, small crowds remain on the streets.
Here's what you need to know:
- In New York, police arrested several protesters in Manhattan's Midtown for marching past the 8 p.m. curfew. Further upstate in Buffalo, two police officers were suspended without pay after pushing a 75-year-old man to the ground during a protest. The man was hospitalized in a stable but serious condition, Buffalo's mayor said.
- In LA and Washington, DC, curfews were lifted on Thursday after peaceful protests over the past few nights. Protesters still gathered to demonstrate, but there were no clashes.
- A memorial service to honor George Floyd took place in Minneapolis. Floyd's family was joined by dozens of guests, including civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson, Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Martin Luther King III and comedian Kevin Hart.
- March on Washington: At the service, Rev. Al Sharpton announced that he's organizing a March on Washington in late August to mark the 57th anniversary of the historic demonstration for civil rights.
- More memorials to come: People in Raeford, North Carolina, and Houston, Texas, will be able to pay their respects to Floyd in the next five days, with public and private memorials planned.
- Military leaders speak out: Gen. John Allen, the former commander of American forces in Afghanistan, joined former Defense Secretary James Mattis and a chorus of other former military leaders in condemning US President Donald Trump's handling of the protests.
- Bail set at $1 million: A judge set bail for three former Minneapolis police officers charged in Floyd's death at $1 million each, or $750,000 under certain conditions. Bail for a fourth former officer was raised to $1 million Wednesday, court documents show.
- Ahmaud Arbery: In a preliminary hearing, the investigator testified that Arbery -- a black man who was shot dead in Georgia in February -- was hit with a truck before he died, and his killer allegedly used a racial slur. The judge ruled all three defendants in that case would stand trial on all charges.
