READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
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.
Amidst news revealing that OJ Simpson has been granted parole, on Wednesday evening Piers Morgan invited Kim Goldman to share her uniquely personal view on the man she believes murdered her brother, Ron Goldman.
Drawing a parallel that centers around dealing with tragedy, Morgan asked Goldman to offer insight into the difficult life now facing those who were held captive by Ariel Castro:
"Those women have a long road ahead of them but it sounds like they are surrounded by a lot of love and support and resources," Goldman noted. "They will forever be connected with Ariel Castro and as many times as he gets brought up in the news it will be a reminder to them and I hope they find comfort in knowing the country is supporting them."
Goldman felt Michelle Knight is lucky in that she will be able to read a victim impact statement at Thursday's sentencing, on opportunity she was denied:
"Oh, you'd have to bleep me for the next 45 minutes," exclaimed Goldman, when asked what she might have said in a statement of her own following her brother's death. "We wrote a book, our family, a hand full of years ago... Each of us wrote what we would have said in a victim impact statement, had we been given the choice. He destroyed our life and my brother's future and the hopes and dreams he was entitled to. That changed the landscape of our family. I resent him for that. I hate him for that and I wish nothing good."
As for the future of a free Simpson?
"If he is granted parole, I hope he lays low and I hope he stops committing crimes," she told Morgan. "But if he does, I hope they lock him back up."
On a day which produced dash cam video of George Zimmerman being pulled over in Forney, Texas for speeding, a traffic stop which revealed the recently acquitted neighborhood watchman to be in possession of a gun, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Marc Lamont Hill and Kristen Soltis to discuss the Florida man's firearm rights:
"I don't feel comfortable about George Zimmerman wandering around aimlessly in his car with a loaded firearm. Sorry, I don't," stated Morgan.
"Neither do I," noted Lamont Hill. "But the truth is, he's entitled to it, number one. Number two, he didn't do anything wrong."
"Is he entitled to it?" Morgan inquired further.
"By law he is," Lamont hill explained. "If anyone might need self-defense, you could make the case it's George Zimmerman. Everybody hates him because he killed Trayvon Martin. But he was found not guilty and he's entitled to that firearm."
"I agree with Mark," Soltis chimed in. "If anybody wants protection right now, his family says he's been receiving death threats. It was in the glove compartment. It's not like he was out looking for trouble. I think George Zimmerman wants to stay off the radar as much as possible."
"He's not doing very well, is he," the host quipped.
