Wednesday's 360 had more crime stories than usual; maybe they're saving most of the political stuff for the post-debate show?

Tonight's "BREAKING NEWS" was indeed breaking: a shooting in an Indianappolis mall. Anderson stated what was known right at 8 PM which wasn't a whole lot. The on-the-loose military blimp crash landed in PA; Boris Sanchez reported from nearby the crash site and Anderson talked to Barbara Starr. Then it was a panel with Lt. Gen. Mark Herting and Randy Arrington to discuss air safety, security and various facts about blimps.

Officer Ben Fields has been fired from his job because of the brutality incident with a 16-year-old in a SC high school. Miguel Marquez had the report. I didn't stay for Anderson's interview with Sheriff Leon Lott because I figured he wouldn't have a lot of new stuff to say.
Same deal with the panel of Sunny Hostin and Harry Houck; we already know their positions and that they would say the same old stuff.

After a short update on the Indianapolis mall shooting, Anderson reported on the death of Corey Jones, shot by police in Florida after his car broke down. Anderson did a good job with the report and his interview with Jones family members and their attorney. I just must have missed the part about why this was on tonight's show. The shooting happened October 18. It's on 360 on October 28. What new news about Jones' death came to light to make it spotlighted on 360 as compared to numerous other cop shootings in the country?

I missed the start of the next segment about the problems in VA hospitals and something Hillary Clinton said. Drew Griffin was on hand to state his case and show more clips of his reports. After Anderson had updates on the Indianapolis shooting and the military blimp, there was a Bulletin.

The Ridiculist was indeed ridiculous: a 14-year-old facing criminal charges for throwing a small carrot at a teacher. Unfortunately, I wasn't in the mood for another crime story. I wanted to see goofy dogs, silly toddlers, chocolate clothes or a witch suing a warlock for harassment.

Today, too much crime news. Tomorrow, too much debate news.

In the post debate analysis, Carl Bernstein talked about how the media and the Democrats aren't paying enough attention to the amount of anger there is on the right and why folks like Trump and Carson are resonating so much with certain segments of the public and Democrats should be very concerned about it--that is probably true and hopefully the Democrats will make that a major focus as the election progresses--considering that Carson, Cruz, Trump and Rubio (who everyone was fawning over) have highly extremist views that work for Republicans but are way out of step with the majority of the electorate, it shouldn't be all that difficult to raise the alarm bells and get people motivated to vote against whoever becomes the GOP nominee. I have some issues with Hillary Clinton left over from the campaign of 2007-2008 and I'm not fully on board with her but she's starting to grow on me and I do appreciate how she's been speaking out very strongly against the Republicans and their policies, she has been drawing a definite distinction between the Democrats beliefs and the Republicans. She's a strong candidate who has been through the ringer and can stand up to any of those clowns--Rubio is such a slick phony.

The banter between AC and Donna Brazile on the debate panels is always a lot of fun.

Saw the debate last night and the only one I feel is a good alternative for Hilary and independents is the Governor of Ohio. To me the gop should push him more. He is good at talking, reasonable, practical and not a religious nutjob, he doesn't say anything whacky or stupid. As an independent I want to hear more about John Kaisch. I think he could won a lot of independent votes in a general election from Hilary. But the gop is headed towards a Trump, Carson, rubio, bush and cruz and none of them are Presidential. I expect Jeb Bush poll numbers to fall even lower to like 3 percent. It seems AC is siding with the gop whines of the moderators questions and attacks on media. 360 and AC in particular arw such hypocrites if dems were whining like the Republicans about the media AC would be very stern in pushing back. The truth is republicans get away with a lot more because are an angry party and it is acceptable from the media for them to attack the media. AC attacked msnbc mods... even after Trump attacked him for soft ball questions.. and AC just laughed it off. 360 has become tools for the gop and that includes AC. He has shown no backbone in challenging GOP attacks, viewpoints at all. Its frustrating watching this show.

CNBC HAD VERY POOR MODERATORS. I REALIZE THE GOP CHAIRPERSON WAS CRITICAL OF THE QUESTIONS THAT
WERE ASKED BUT THE MODERATORS THEMSELVES WERE POOR. BESTY QUICK WASN'T TOO BAD ON THE BUSINESS
END OF IT BUT SHE DIDN'T ASK ANY OF THE CANDIDATES AFTER THEY SUBJECTED US TO THEIR TAX PLANS, IF
THEY HAD BROUGHT THEIR CALCULATORS WITH THEM, BECAUSE TRUMP AND CARSON LOW BALLED THEIR BALANCE
SHEETS.
SURPRISINGLY MY FAV, GOVERNOR CHRISTIE DID QUITE WELL AND EVEN PUT IN A GOOD WORD FOR NJ. THE PROBLEM IS NOBODY, INCLUDING MYSELF, TRUSTS HIM AND HE KEEPS GOING AFTER SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE,
AND PUBLIC PENSION PLANS, CALLING THEM ENTITLEMENTS.
HUCKLEBEE WAS RIGHT. THEY ARE NOT ENTITLEMENTS. THAT IS OUR MONEY FROM OUR PAY CHECKS THAT WERE USED FOR THINGS LIKE BUILDING NEW ROADS AND BRIDGES, CHRIS CHRISTIE.....HOW FITTING YOU TELLING
THE VIEWERS WHERE OUR MONEY WENT AND IT WOULD BE A "BRIDGE."

SOMEONE HAS TO SHAKE UP THE SOUTH CAROLINA JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND QUICKLY. HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE
THE FBI. WHILE I REALIZE SCHOOL LAW IS STILL A STATES RIGHTS ISSUE, DISRUPTING A CLASS IS NOT A MISDEMEANOR IN MOST STATES, ESPECIALLY STATES IN THE NORTH.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS TEEN IS FACING 90 DAYS IN JAIL AND A THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE FOR DISRUPTING A CLASS AND NOT HANDING OVER HER CELL PHONE. IT WASN'T A WEAPON! IT WAS A PHONE AND SHE WAS DISORDERLY AND POSSIBLY SHOULD BE SUSPENDED FOR INSUBORDINATION, BUT THAT'S NOT A CRIME!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOUTH CAROLINA'S JUSTICE SYSTEM? WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOUTH CAROLINA? PERIOD.
DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY DISRUPTIVE STUDENTS I'VE HAD OVER THE YEARS? NO THEY WEREN'T TALKING ON THEIR
PHONES BECAUSE WHEN I TAUGHT, THIS WAS NOT AN ISSUE. BUT I'VE HAD GANG MEMBERS TO DEAL WITH....IT
IS ALL PART OF TEACHING THESE DAYS. MOST OF THEM WERE MADE CLASS'MESSENGERS', I WILL ADMIT: "TAKE THIS NOTE TO THE OFFICE AND STAY A WHILE."
OR GIVE THEM BUSY WORK ON THE COMPUTER....THEY LOVED TECHNOLOGY. WHAT CAN I SAY.
NOW THAT THE DEPUTY HAS FIRED THE OFFICER, THE SCHOOL BOARD NEEDS TO FIRE THE VICE PRINCIPAL WHO WAS
PRESENT DURING THIS INCIDENT, AND NOT WAIT ANOTHER MINUTE OR BETTER YET, LET CHRIS CHRISTIE READ
SOUTH CAROLINA, NEW JERSEY'S SCHOOL LAW. IT MAKES MORE SENSE.
