Wednesday's 360 was okay; there were a couple things I'd have changed if I was in charge.. And I would fix the stuck-on-ON LIVE button; it's getting ridiculous now and just can never be believed.

The first segment was the best of the night. After a minute or two on the severe weather in OK, KS and NE, there was a good look at the charges against the 6 cops in Baltimore and questioins about State Attorney Mosby's investigation. Anderson had a Q&A with Ivan Perez about the Medical Examiner's report, the police investigation,homcide vs. manslaughter and opportunities for the defense lawyers. The panel of Sunny Hostin, Dwight Petit and Page Crowder talked about the legality of Gray's knife, Mosby's case, question of overcharging the cops, question of false imprisonment and the influence of politics.

Gary Tuchman had a report on the NFL's investigation report on "DeflateGate'. The NFL believes the Patriots' footballs were probably on purpose deflated (to make them easier to catch) before the AFC Championship game against the Colts. The report also states Quarterback Tom Brady was likely aware of the deflates. Though I wondered how they would prove what was in Brady's head, I didn't stick around for the discussion with Kravitz and Shaughnessy.

More speculation in the next segment about the pilot of the German airplane who deliberately crashed it in the Alps. An investigative study states the pilot may have rehearsed the maneuver. I changed the channel but when I got back there was Richard Quest (one of my favorites) telling Anderson how much we just don't know about the pilot or the crash.

Anderson updated viewers on the weather in OK, KS and NE and had a phone interview with Jeff Theis, witness to the storm. Not interested, went elsewhere in TV Land but was back in time to see the last portion of the Bulletin.

Filler report of the night goes to Randi Kaye's report on a wealthy man charged with killing his wife and going to a third trial. This was the same time as Hayes' report on the NFL/Patriots/deflated balls appropriately titled "They (Probably) Did It".

Another update on stormy weather was in the last half-minute.

Thanks, ATA, for the extra photos from Baltimore. I always like seeing behind-the-scenes stuff.
