"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – CT Cops call for Newtown photos to remain unreleased, Obama in Israel, the BlackBerry rebirth

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • CT Cop: No Newtown Photos

Amidst continued national debate over gun safety and firearm legislation, on Wednesday evening Piers Morgan invited five Connecticut police chiefs, including Newtown's Michael Kehoe, to join the program live and in person as part of a roundtable discussion.

Addressing the suggestion provided during the previous evening's episode of "Piers Morgan Live," in which filmmaker Michael Moore called for the releasing of crime scene photographs from the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school, Kehoue respectfully disagreed:

"Law enforcement's position from day one has been to protect the families. And they have suffered enough. And to release some pictures like that may make them suffer more," explained the man who witnessed that day's devastation first-hand. "I think everybody can understand, as you've aptly put, the slaughter that an AR-15 can do to a 6 or-year-old or 7-year-old. I don't think we don't need pictures to know that. I think in our own minds, we can - we can certainly imagine it. And that should be our driving force."

  • Peace in the Middle East: Obama in Israel

Meanwhile, on a day which saw Barack Obama visiting Israel for the first since becoming president, James Zogby offered his opinions as to the ways in which the United States could aid in bringing peace to the Middle East:

"What the U.S. has to do, when the president is done with this trip, come back, hopefully earning the confidence of the Israeli people, trying to restore some confidence on the Palestinian side, which is lost right now, and then refashion a Middle East peace initiative that gives some hope to both sides," advised the President of the Arab American Institute. "Right now, Palestinians don't feel hope at all."

  • Bringing back the BlackBerry: CEO says iPhone has fallen

And as the technology race grows faster and more intense with the creation of each device, on Wednesday Thorsten Heins joined Morgan with his latest toy.

The CEO of BlackBerry, Heins explained his theory on how his company's bitter rival – the Apple iPhone – has surrendered it's position atop the mobile industry:

"I think they are falling behind in terms of the user interface. You have this in and out paradigm all the time on an iPhone, right? You open an application, you do something, you close, you open, you close, you open, you close. On Blackberry, you flow. You open everything, and it's open for you," detailed the 55-year-old German. "Just with a swipe of your thumb, you go wherever you want. That takes a lot of think points and stress away for you."

      We've known that for sometime. Only the other evening he misleadingly claimed the vast majority of Americans support a ban. It's like all the other questionable statistics he pulls out of the air. Morgan lost his credibility as a journalist when he got sacked from a British newspaper for publishing fake pictures of British troops abusing Iraqi prisoners. I'm glad to see his viewer ratings are plummeting, lets hope CNN pull the plug on his show soon. One thing's for sure if they keep him, he's lost a good chunk of their audience through this, but furthermore I think most Americans don't want to listen and Englishman delivering their news. I know the Brits wouldn't tolerate an American.

        Thanks for reply,CR,and here's the counter(rapiers at the ready!)–last year's stats were the lowest for murder since 1989:no-one's claiming UK's a rose garden(I beg your pardon...),but we're going the right way,I think,and we DEARLY want the same for you,that,from our perspective,is what ALL this is about:you might listen to the Nasty British,we're all too aware of that,and don't want to squander the chance to help our brothers-in-arms.(September 12th,CR:I enjoy your posts very much) Keep up the good work,Greg.

        I really don't need to say anymore than this. Despite a gun ban, gun violence has doubled, children as young as a 11 years old are being gunned down on the streets and in bars, and Britain is named the violent capital of Europe.

        Cr why cant you offer one legitamiate arguement besides insulting Piers. You seem to Stalk him. What about Israel. Did you see Rachael meaddows slam Fox news again today on their covering of dead end issues at the time of live coverage of every other news station on the speach of the president talking to the world that we got Israel back ( which we shouldlt because there hippocrites) and the priminister of Israel gave obama a heors welcome salute medal. During which that time FOX NEWS laid out that Obama mistration is aginst the Israeli people. ( crininal honor of Fox news once again)

      Hi Matt,how do you think you speak English?

      What goes around in the afterburn of Empire[4 times size Roman;8 times bloody French].Since July 96 there's never been
      any other attacks on bairns in Britain as result of recalling/banning automatic weaponry(and handguns with The Firearms Act 1997),and Piers is fully aware of that:he let himself down with the fabrication,but he's paid his dues,and I think he's a
      good man underneath it all.Gently does it,old chap! Take it easy,Greg.

        Fair enough Greg. But despite Britain's gun ban the overall homicide rate in Britain is significantly higher than many of its large gunning Western European neighbors. The Swiss, Germans and French on a per capita basis are the 3rd, 4th and 5th largest gun owning nations on the planet. The Swiss privately own 8 times as many guns as the British, with most Swiss homes owning an assault rifle, and the Germans and French own nearly 5 times as many. But despite all of these guns the homicide rates in these three countries are nearly 40% lower than gun free Britain. If guns are the problem these countries, along with Italy and Spain, two other large gun owing European countries would have substantially higher homicide rates than Britain, but they don't.

      Reply to Matt: Poles keep changing and are often incorrect. It depends on who made them,etc. However the latest from the Mayors Against Illegal Guns: 91% support background checks at gun shows, 82% favor making illegal gun sales a federal crime, and 57% want assault weapons banned.

      As a mother and teacher for 20 years, I too support these measures. Piers represents most Americans on this.

      I agree if Piers would spend more time researching and less time giving his oppinion He would more than likely get closer to the facts of the different things he has on the show. Maybe he should talk about why he had to leave the program he had in Britain I also see how he insults people unless they agree with him and he jumps in and dont let them talk very rude.........John

    My god "Cr" you are the second coming og lame,but stupifies Sean Hannity...... Who got shamley backhanded by female Fox female contributor on Eygpt and his sick fantasies of rediculiousness and checked, 2. tonight one of the great blunders this year so far from FOX imaginary News scadals, Msnbc Rachael Meaddows wreaked havoc on the ethics of Fox distributing fallacy while the subject they brodcast that " Presindent Obama is against the Israeli gov. Yet on Live coverage around the news worl :except Fox news, Israel gave president Obama in Israela medal of trust ,and a pledge of genuine sincerity of faith to the U.S in its pledge to defend Israel. This was so great a debacle from Fox that ,snbc broke, it probably will stand the greatest cope for the whole year commintted by Fox news- if they can call it that. Tune i tommorrow for the grand Hat trick, Fox will deliver a blunder of a hoax story, you can count on it. till this time tommorrow night.

    You wonder why, seriously here now. 30 years ago Reagan re-assured peace for israel bye buying the north African countries Tyrannts ( so-called presidents of Egypt, libya ,etc. gave them the life to live like an episode of MTV's Cribs show to suppress their countries people. so you could kind of understand during Arab spring why the oppressed people of north africa were not to happy with the US. but most stuck with us. Now Wht cant the palistenians have their own coutry recognized even though their still outside Israel now in refugee camps. Israel and the palastenians have had a morbid disagreement since lets say " give or take forever" since the birth and death of Christ, Right. The majority of the well to do young population of Israel dont even know whats going on over the hills to the farthest right side of their country. So lets get this debacle over with and please bothsides, Its only human rights LAWS!!!! The youth and the newest onlookers of Iran want what the rest of the world has ," a Life to live with materialistic items and wealth. The Milf of a president now their is on his way out and is trying to startanything. Sure we will deal with the nukes situation how ever it has to be handled in the near future , but Israel isnt going to scare the rest of the world- they can clean up their own mess of medaling and starting wars. thats what the gop want is another war.

    please keep the assault weapons used in Sandy Hook in the fore front. If they saw the pictures of the guns, then maybe Harry Reid can get off his seesaw horse. Piers we appreciate you more than you know. Keep your eyes on the issues. USA Needs constant reminders, and awareness to get through their thick Gun Skulls.'

      Yes, it is our fault that we want to see something done that will actually make a difference rather than just a feel good appearance of doing something. The gun doesn't jump into someone's hand and go off. Is that too hard for your peanut sized brain to understand?? Be happy the 2nd is protecting your right to the 1st.

      people are very aware of what damage bullets do to a body. thats why there are 80-100 million Americans who have guns for protection & don't use them to harm others. We all saw what happened to JFK's head & we don't need to see pictures of dead children to know how important it is to own guns & have training to stop a maniac from shooting us or innocent people in our communities.
      any weapon used to kill people leaves body looking disgusting unless its some chemical/medical weapon like a syringe. have you seen bodies of people whose throats have been slit, heads bashed in with bats or other blunt objects. how about victims of vicious dog attacks? you need to see those to know how disgusting it is? get real

    wth is going on with these wierdos??? since when has that ever been a good idea to take away a peoples ability to protect their own country!!!! & i mean attacks from foriegn governments, internal threats from people in our own government, or just the average every day street thugs & any maniac bent on mass murder.....

    did you not see what happens in a gun free zone in a state that already had an AR15 gun ban? you should look it up, a criminal was able to steal guns & shoot a bunch of innocent kids & nobody could stop him....

    it was horrible & couldve been easily prevented if illegal legislature hadnt been set up to create an environment like that

    If gun control worked, New York and Chicago would be the safest places in America. Well guess what, they have the highest gun violence statistics in the U.S. Also if you actually research the Sandy Hook tragedy, the "AR-15" (which actually looked more like a shotgun) was in the truck of the car the entire time. Only pistols were used in the shooting. This is more propaganda to get semi-auto weapons banned. I see through your lies CNN and Piers Morgan.
