The protests in Charlotte NC was the only story during the first hour of Thursday's 360. At the very start Anderson mentioned the police shootings of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa and Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte. He then talked to Boris Sanchez, reporting from Charlotte, and the topic never left Charlotte for the rest of the hour.
Sanchez reported on the protest, the mobilization of the National Guard, reviewed last night's events, had clips of the statements from the Police Chief and the Mayor and asked what the deal is about the video. Anderson and Sanchez talked about the man shot during last night's protest, allegedly by another protester. A panel started with David Klinger, Criminologist; Michael Eric Dyson, Sociology Professor at Georgetown University; and Darrin Porcher, retired NYPD Lieutenant. There was a variety of opinions and it got a little heated at the end.

Brian Todd reported from Charlotte at the start of a longer than usual second segment. He focused on the nature of the crowd and what they, the police, the National Guard and the nearby businesses were doing. For a few minutes Anderson went back and forth between Todd and Sanchez.

Anderson wanted to start the third segment talking to Sanchez but didn't get a connection. So instead he spoke with Darrin Porcher about the police and the National Guard, what they've been doing and what they could be doing. Sanchez did get back. After talking with him, Anderson went back to Porcher and to David Klinger.

For the last segment I saw (I was partially distracted by a football game) was Anderson having a Q&A with Laura Coates and Jeffrey Toobin.

The second hour started with more from Charlotte. I didn't watch but maybe it was later when Anderson covered Crutcher's death and the charges of manslaughter against the cop who shot him.

Hayes and Maddow took the time to cover other stories. However the silver lining in 360's ALL-CHARLOTTE first hour was no 'What does Trump say about this?' story.

TRUMP'S ONLY REPLY TO THE RIOTS IN NC WAS A DIG AT HILLARY: "SHE WAS SLEEPING."
WHEN IS THIS MAN GOING TO ACT AS THOUGH HE IS TAKING OWNERSHIP FOR THE PRESIDENCY AND NOT GO
AFTER ANOTHER CANDIDATE??
THAT DOESN'T TELL US WHAT HE WILL DO WHEN RIOTS BRAKE OUT UNDER HIS LEADERSHIP. OH WE KNOW.
THEY WOULDN'T BECAUSE TRUMP IS WHAT, A MAGICIAN AND THINGS LIKE THAT DON'T HAPPEN UNDER HIS
WATCH. JUST WHAT IS HIS PLAN, OTHER THAN SAYING "HILLARY IS SLEEPING.?
AND HE BETTER HOPE SHE IS STILL SLEEPING WHEN THEY DEBATE.....BECAUSE IT WILL BE AN UTTER JOY TO WATCH HER DECIMATE HIM, SHRED, BY SHRED, AND WATCH HIM SQUIRM.

I was nodding in agreement with most of the strong points made on the Charlotte shooting and police violence in general by Michael Eric Dyson--that's a rare thing since he's a big critic of President Obama and I'm always in total disagreement with him on that subject.

@CAPPY, unfortunately the bar is being lowered so much for Trump in the debates that as long as he doesn't have a meltdown and spontaneously start shouting out racial epithets and sexist insults, the press is already primed to say he 'won', even though he'll most assuredly be demolished by Hillary.
