Wednesday evening brought another night of protest in Charlotte, N.C., with the situation growing even more violent. One person was reportedly shot and in critical condition in a shooting police say they were not involved in.
Others in the area to cover the protest/riots/demonstrations should also pay attention to their surroundings, as evidenced by this CNN reporter who was knocked to the ground while speaking on CNN:

Maybe it’s time for the media to clear their people out of there.
CNN will call this an involuntary privilege check https://t.co/IxllMiX2rD
