Powerful stuff, isn’t it? I’ve been watching CNN for the past 40 minutes gobsmacked by the stupidity of the State Patrol. Amazing how quickly he was released once the Governor became involved and the embarrassment became apparent.

If anyone has the CBS News app, the live coverage from CBS Minnesota (WCCO) on CBSN has been an interesting watch, even if it is a little repetitive. They were doing rolling live coverage until almost 2am US Central time which is some dedication and something you wouldn’t see here very often.

CNN showed some vision of protestors outside the White House grabbing a section of temporary fencing from the hands of police who were trying to hold it in place and tossing it aside.

The big three local stations in LA aren’t carrying any LIVE coverage- Haircut Night on CBS, Shark Tank on ABC and a dance show on NBC continue to air while police mobilise around the city in an attempt to keep control.
