Another Trump filled night with little segments on between. AC:"How can Trump comeback on the polls?" Everything is slanted on Trump and what to do now he is behind in 4 polls. I don't recall in 2011-2012 they were this interested in polls. In fact very rarely did 360 talk about Obama-Romney polls in 2012. Coverage was slanted in favor of Romney in 2012 but nothing like this cycle for Trump. I don't think its all Anderson's fault but he definitely bears some responsibility of the daily nonsense we are seeing. AC was like my last hope of t.v. cable news journalist... that hope has faded on 360. I think I will watch planet and peril just to be remembered how great AC and 360 team can be... remember when AC had good variety in stories, in depth investigations? Remember when AC would push back against republicans like he does dems? Remember when he seemed to have purpose on this program? Long time fans, I yearn for 2005-2010 360.

I HAVEN'T WATCHED 360 IN ABOUT 6 MONTHS. THOUGH IT IS AS BORING AS EVER, I WANTED TO HEAR THE SYNOPSIS OF THE VIDEO THAT WENT VIRAL IN THE SOUTH CAROLINA SCHOOL DISTRICT.
HAVING TAUGHT PUBLIC SCHOOL FOR 35 YEARS IN A NJ SCHOOL DISTRICT, WHAT I WITNESSED IN THIS VIDEO DID NOT
SURPRISED ME. HAD THE PIX NOT GONE VIRAL, THIS
INCIDENT WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST ONE OF MANY.
SCHOOL DISTRICTS DO NOT REPORT VIOLENCE UNLESS A POLICE REPORT IS FILED. ALTERCATIONS LIKE THE ONE
IN SOUTH CAROLINA, IS NOT UNUSUAL. WHAT IS UNUSUAL IS THE PROCEDURE TO EXPEL THE STUDENT. THE POLICE OFFICER IMHO, USED UNREASONABLE
FORCE AND HE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN CALLED BY THE ADMINISTRATION.
FROM WHAT WE KNOW, THE STUDENT WAS NOT CARRYING A WEAPON AND WAS NOT A DANGER TO OTHERS. ALL WE
KNOW IS THAT SHE WAS DISRUPTIVE AND THAT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME, EVERY DAY, AND THE ADMINISTRATORS
ARE SUPPOSED TO HANDLE IT. THEY DON'T. THE CLASS SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED BY THE TEACHER TO THE AUDITORIUM. YES, THIS IS AGAINST
SCHOOL LAW IN MOST DISTRICTS, HOWEVER II WAS THE MOST REASONABLE THING TO DO. NOTIFY THE OFFICE
THAT THE STUDENT IS LEFT ALONE, AND THEN IT IS UP TO THE IMMEDIATE SUPERVISOR TO DEAL WITH THE
SITUATION. EVENTUALLY, THE UNRULY STUDENT, HAVING NO AUDIENCE, WOULD HAVE LEFT ON HER OWN.
SCHOOLS ARE TOLD TO HIDE VIOLENCE....IT IS A HIDDEN CODE OF ETHICS. WHILE THIS APPEARS TO BE
A RACIAL INCIDENT, IN A STATE THAT FLEW THE CONFEDERATE FLAG OVER THE CAPITOL BUILDING UNTIL RECENTLY, IT MAY WELL BE ONE....IT HAPPENS EVERY DAY ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND GOES UNREPORTED.
IF THERE'S BLAME TO GO AROUND, AND I DON'T OFTEN SAY THIS, BLAME THE SCHOOLS, FOR A TOTAL LACK OF
DISCIPLINE, PROCEDURE, AND RESPECT FOR TEACHERS, WHO CONTINUALLY COMPLAIN ABOUT UNRULY STUDENTS
AND GET NO BACK UP FROM IMMEDIATE SUPERVISORS WHO ARE AFRAID OF THE PARENTS.

I was five minutes late to Tuesday's 360; just got back with my antibiotic for an ear infection. I jotted down the topics in the show but rather than paying close attention to the dialogue, I kept hoping my ear would get better... or I watched Hayes.

When I got to the show John King was explaining some details in the newest poll that put Carson on top of Trump. Hayes was covering the police brutality incident at a South Carolina high school. Checking back on 360, Anderson was interviewing Armstrong Williams, a spokesperson for the Carson campaign. Because I think Carson is just as much as a joke as Trump when it comes to viable Presidential candidates, I went back to Hayes.

The image over Anderson's shoulder at the start of the second segment was "Trouble for Trump" and Trump's head. When the clips of Trump bombastic lambasting started, I changed the channel. Checking back later I saw a panel of Jeffrey Lord and Ana Navarro. At the moment I saw the panel, Lord the Trump junkie was dissing the polls.

Next up was 360's segment on the South Carolina high school police brutality incident. Gary Tuchman had the report and Anderson interviewed Sheriff Leon Lott.

Ben Fields, the police officer in that incident was profiled in a report by Miguel Marquez. This was followed by a panel with Sunny Hostin, Harry Houck and Michael Dorn. Hayes at this time was reporting on the latest involving the Democratic Presidential candidates, whom I haven't seen much of on 360 since the Dems Debate review.

Very late in the show was the topic of possibly putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria and Iraq. This was Blitzer's lead story at 6 PM. Anderson had a short Q&A with Barbara Starr. Last was the Bulletin. The first blip in the Bulletin was on the federal budget vote, a topic that could have made better use of the segment devoted to Trump.

On Wednesday I'll watch the 8 PM 360 but not the two-hour post-debate show. I'm expecting the debate to be the usual blather and babble. If anything noteworthy happens, Anderson will be sure to have it again on Thursday's 360.

HUFFPOST IS REPORTING THAT THE OFFICER WAS FIRED FOR THE VIOLENT WAY IN WHICH HE DISCIPLINED THE
UNRULY STUDENT, BUT THE DEPUTY SHERIFF ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THOUGH THE COP WAS DISCHARGED OF HIS DUTIES
"THE STUDENT STARTED IT."
REALLY? WHAT AN IMMATURE THING TO SAY...."SHE STARTED IT." YES, SHERIFF, ALTERCATIONS ARE STARTED AND SOMEONE HAS TO FINISH THEM AND SHE WAS A MINOR WHO SPOKE WELL ON TELEVISION WHEN
INTERVIEWED WITH HER FAMILY. SHE DIDN'T SEEM UNREASONABLE AND I KNOW TROUBLED TEENS WHEN I SEE THEM. SO AGAIN I SAY WHERE WERE THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND WHY WASN'T THE GUIDANCE COUNSELOR
CALLED INSTEAD OF THE POLICE?
I DON'T OFTEN DEFEND KIDS IN TROUBLE BECAUSE IF THEY DO THE CRIME, THEY SHOULD, IMHO, DO THE TIME.
BUT SHE WAS ACTING LIKE A NORMAL TEEN WHO WAS REBELLING AGAINST AUTHORITY AND AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL, YOUR OFFICER PROVOKED HER FURTHER BY DRAGGING HER OUT OF THE ROOM IN FRONT OF THE CLASS.
IF I WERE THE PARENT, I'D FILE A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST THE SCHOOL SYSTEM.
IT ISN'T RACIAL. IT IS STUPIDITY AND THIS CAN NOT BE TOLERATED.
