Lawrence O'Donnell Interrogates Empty Chair Instead of Zimmerman Attorney, Who "Ran Away" from Show

 Last night on his show, The Last Word, Lawrence O'Donnell got ticked off about the approach of the George Zimmerman (Trayvon Martin's shooter) camp towards the media.

In short, Craig Sonner, the lawyer for Zimmerman, who was supposed to be on his show, let the studio before the segment taped. So O'Donnell got furious, and started interrogating Sonner's empty chair, asking him all the questions he would have asked had Sonner been present. Said, O'Donnell, "he wasn't going to get out of here with an easy interview, and that's why he left."

"Watch out for wherever Craig Sonner shows up next on television," said O'Donnell, saying that "this lawyer is getting away with the craziest stuff any lawyer has ever attempted to get away with on television... and so he is in his car, running away."

He also takes the Sanford Police Department to task for their leaking of "evidence" to justify their "foolish, unjustifiable" decision not to arrest Zimmerman.
