Tuesday Arsenio Hall, television personality and the latest winner of "Celebrity Apprentice", stopped by "Piers Morgan Tonight" to announce his return to late night television. His new show will air next year.
Before his announcement, Hall spoke with Piers Morgan about the the recent death of Rodney King who's beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was the catalyst for a string of riots in the city after the police officers involved in the beating were acquitted. "I feel bad for Rodney," said Hall. "The whole back half of his life was kind of sad."
"This was a good guy," said Hall in response to the backlash towards King in his later life. "This is a guy who actually I've heard apologize to the people and happy that people forgave him for what he did. And this is a guy who got beat, you know. He was a sweet guy. He had a good heart."
Mark O'Mara, the defense attorney for accused killer George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case also spoke to Morgan on Tuesday and discussed the transcripts of the recently released jailhouse phone calls between Zimmerman and his wife. "There's no question that they were talking in this sort of simplistic kind of code," said O'Mara regarding Zimmerman and his wife's efforts to hide the truth about their finances. O'Mara added, "I would ask the question, who are they hiding the truth from?"
"The reality is, in those 30 hours of tapes, 154 phone calls, there's not one phone call that evidences their intent to deceive the judge," argued O'Mara. "Now, granted, they do not tell the judge the absolute truth. But if you listen to the tapes, there's not one tape there that suggests anything."
