8:00 pm
check check check welcome to al jazeera america. i'm jonathan betz in new york. >> it's a race to save lives in the philippines after typhoon haiyan leaves massive death and destruction. now just hours ago the same typhoon hitting vietnam and claiming more lives. >> we are absolutely determined that this would be a good deal or there'll be no deal. >> secretary of state john kerry on the defensive after talks on iran's nuclear program end with no deal. world leaders are meeting on climate change, many wondering if anything will come from the talks. sh
8:01 pm
>> search and rescue efforts in the philippines stalled. many roads leading to the areas are impassable. emergency crews have not given up hope of finding more survivors, so far the death toll could be 10,000. the world is rushing to help the philippines. the american military has teams on the way and international aid from britain and other members of the european union. the major needs are food and water, and the e.u. promised to lend any assistance it can. at the vatican pope francis led tens of thousands in a prayer for the victims, and used the internet - tweeting to members of the the catholic church to join him in prayer. the message retreated 30,000 times. craig is in manila with the latest. what are y hearing tonight?
8:02 pm
>> well, as you mentioned the priority now is trying to find survivors in some of these coastal regions that they haven't been able to reach - bridges, roads, airports still cut off. many places in accessible. some provinces under water. this is three days later. so what they are trying to do is establish power and communications. everything - there was few structures left standing on the coast of the leyte island which is where the typhoon made landfall, and where they expect 10,000 people died, and that is just in one province, 44 provinces were hit by the typhoon. they are specking casualties to rise. >> talk about the need. all the people that are suffering there is help really getting through to the worst-hit areas, to the people that theed it the most? >> well, they started airlifting
8:03 pm
where they can, and we are seeing now, as you mentioned, the international community starting to move everything from food to blankets coming in with world vision from germany. there has been pledges for funding from australia and canada, and all the asian countries as well. the -- asean countries as well, it's finding who needs this most and getting into the areas. they are so blocked off from the damage, they don't know how severe the problem is. cell tours, mobile cell towers are being established where they can, so people with cell phones can call out to relatives, and they can establish contact with authorities. they are useless unless you can get power to them. they are setting up mobile generates where they can. >> how quickly do they expect the aid to get to the victims, and has the philippine government given an indication as to whether they are getting
8:04 pm
all the help they need? >> well, president benigno aquino visited leyte island yesterday. you could tell that he was extremely frustrated with the slow response, the inability to get to the people in the necessary time, because it's not just food and water, it's also shelter - many of these people have been without shelter. some 390,000 people - between that figure and 500,000 require shelter. they are now saying 9.5 million have been affected by the typhoon. that's a lot of people to help. the aid is coming in. but also they have a problem with looting. where it's not reaching, people are desperate for food, they are fighting for it, and they are looting. we are hearing reports of atms being attacked. president benigno aquino is
8:05 pm
talking about instituting emergency law, and is sending in troops to restore order. >> if the storms are not addressed, you see the ripple effect problems - looting and disease, especially since we are considering thousands of people killed, and as you mentioned there's not a lot of places to put them. >> that's right. what happened in the past is that bodies had gathered and were placed in public offices and town halls. they are laid open so the public can go and view them, identify friends and relatives. several days later there is a mass grave and burial. there has been reports coming through today of some 300 to 500 bodies in one such grave alone in tacloban, the capital of leyte. the problem is if there is food
8:06 pm
or water left on the ground. that there is the risk of disease. many of the aid agencies, many of the bodies have been caught in the debris are laying on the roadside. that's all they've been able to do, cover them with plastic while they help survivors. as the president's, survivesors are the priority. they'll have to deal with the dead and consider that. there is the risk of disease. >> it's a horrific scene. thank you for your time. >> al jazeera's jalala was in the city of tacloban, preparing to report as the storm hit. she found herself fighting pore for her life. it was a vicious force. typhoon haiyan swept through the philippines friday morning, destroying everything in its
8:07 pm
path - powerlines, roads, villages wiped out in an instant. the typhoon arrived three hours earlier. thousands were trapped when water rose as high as five metres. we were at the eye of typhoon haiyan's wrath. >> we are trying to make our way out of the place. it's a little over three hours from the wrath of typhoon haiyan brought into the town. this place has become a ghost town. there's a few hours ago we were, ourselves, caught up in the middle of what is the most powerful typhoon in the world. it was hard because at some point we were preparing for a live. all of a sudden the water went up. before we knew it we were by the ceiling, clinging for our lives. it's a miracle that we survived. we need to make our way out of here. there's nothing left, only
8:08 pm
destruction and death. >> it was the world's most powerful typhoon on record. the damage for small province is unprecedented. the governor says he fears that 20,000 people are dead. those that survived face more difficult days ahead. the entire province is isolated. thousands have been left home, unsure where to go. searching for shelter in the structures that remain standing. will everyone here has a family member or friend who died. the reality hard for anyone to grasp. >> translation: we almost drowned. it's so difficult. we have nothing left. no place to sleep, not even dry clothes to wear. >> translation: we were in the gymnasium, which is supposed to be our evacuation center. it collapsed. everyone started to run everywhere to save their own
8:09 pm
lives. >> this is one of the few establishments operating. but doctors here are working under strange conditions, operating on the injured without electricity and clean water. and a short supply of medicine is running out. most of the areas remain unreachable. the dead, the wounded and those who survived cut out from the rest of the world. as nightfall, people here become more desperate. the devastation is staggering. the true extent of the damage is unknown. the white house released a statement. saying:
8:10 pm
. many filipino americans are desperately trying to reach their loved ones. kilmeny duchardt meets a community in new york trying to reach home. >> right now all laura can do is pray. she's a member here, at the filipino american united church of christ in the richmond hill section of new york. her brother and relative live on leyte, in the central philippines, one of the hardest areas hit by typhoon haiyan. >> i'm anxious because i haven't heard from them for two nights. i've been trying to call them for two days, two nights, but sometimes the phones would ring, but nobody would pick up. it would say i can't get through or it's unattended or sometimes
8:11 pm
there's no connection at all, it's dead. >> widespread power outages from the storm made communication from the u.s. near impossible. this woman says her faith gives her something to hold on to. >> we are hopeful. >> pastor said the church has been raising funds for the earthquake that rocked the philippines weeks ago. now this. >> we can't change the path of the typhoon, but we can have a good attitude in facing the typhoon. so as a pastor i want to speak about the pope, the resource in our faith to rise up from death. >> faith they'll need as information of the scope of the disaster unfolds. >> paritioners at the united church of christ say they plan
8:12 pm
to raise money to help family and friends. the biggest fear was damaged roads and bridges is that the aid won't get there. >> typhoon haiyan made second land fall. the storms and winds weakened to 96 k/hr by the time it reached vietnam. 600,000 from evacuated. six people have been killed along the coast. where is that massive typhoon now >> now we are looking at it moving into parts of china. we had parts of china coastline receive over 9 inches of rainfall. parts of northern vietnam have been reporting 5-8 inches of rain, and this particular storm is still packing a punch as it's curved to the north and north-east, where it will bring rain to the inland areas of china. more rain is possible as we are tracking a new potential tropical storm.
8:13 pm
the system is a cluster of thunder storms out in the pacific, but the track of that as we watch the development is headed towards the philippines, the same areas, same towns and villages hit by the super typhoon may potentially have a tropical storm on the way. we'll know about that within the next 12 hours. as we look at the storm track of the storm, parts of southern china reporting up no 9 inches of rainfall, flooding and landslides anticipated with the storm. we expect to see the potential develop in northern vietnam. we have two different threats that we are watching. not only the current tropical cyclone that's falling apart now. it did make rainfall as an equivalent to a category is, but once it hit land it started to break apart and dissipate they are still getting the rain fall. then the second threat is the tropical potential for the
8:14 pm
philippines. more on that throughout the night. >> see you later. after three days of talks there was no deal with iran over its nuclear program. iran today said it will not give up uranium enrichment with the u.s. hope is high that deals will still be reached. patty culhane has more. >> they talked for day, in the end couldn't agree on what is next for iran's nuclear program. the foreign ministers headed back to their capitals, they went public with their positions. iran's leader broadcasting his bottom line. >> translation: national interests are a red line. among them are the right to enrich uranium on iranian soil. >> iran has the right to peaceful nuclear power. that is not sitting well with israel, who said the goal should
8:15 pm
be the wholesale dismantling. the prime minister took to the air waves to warn he's not alone. >> it's not only my concern that this is a bad deal. there are many arab leaders in the region saying this is a bad deal for the region and the world. when you have the arabs and israelis speaking in one voice, it doesn't happen often. it's worth paying attention to us. >> he has backers in the u.s. congress, who say they might vote to increase sanctions on iran this week. >> it's an insurance for the united states to make sure that iran complies with an agreement that we would want to see, which is... . >> secretary of state john kerry is warning new sanctions could end the discussions. publicly lobbying congress to trust the administration and give them more time. >> we are not going into a full deal and giving away something. we are talking about stopping
8:16 pm
the program where it is, with enough guarantees to know that it is, in fact, stopped where it is. while we then negotiate the full measure of the deal. >> that may not be enough for the u.s. congress. we could find out if they'll lisp to the president or the israeli lobby. how they decide could determine if the talks get another chance to succeed. earlier i spoke to the founder of the iranian council who said the debate boils down to trust. >> iran came to vienna with the perception that they had agreed with p 5 plus 1, based on the framework. there was three parts. the talks they had arrived at. the second part was to do with the processes that would make the goals achieved and finally
8:17 pm
the end state of iran's nuclear problems, and that is to say iran would maintain civilians enrichment on its soil, but everyone else will make sure that there'll be no bombs made. iran got surprised when it came to the negotiation this time, and realised that there is no agreement on the end - in our state of iran's nuclear problem - they were talking about, all right, what it is you want to do at the end of the day. iran thought i had agreed on it. >> should iran be trusted to have any kind of nuclear facility. >> that's a great point, a great question. the biggest problem in vienna, sorry, geneva is american said,
8:18 pm
"i want to unleash the sanctions but how do i trust you", at the end of the day you have only nuclear enrichment for civilian purpose, and how should they be trusted. >> should the united states trust rain? >> the framework had three parts. in the middle there was a - step one was to be basically what they called confidence building. that is iran was supposed to do a, b, c and the u.s. was supposed to proportionally match the abc with, you know, relieving sanctions on it. at that point the problem got into difficulty, that's the negotiation, into difficulty, because iran said, "okay, you are asking me to do a, b, c >> slow down the enrichment, put it on parliament house. >> and they say, "what am i getting?" >> lifting sanctions. >> they said it was not enough.
8:19 pm
>> again, why should iran be trusted? why should the united states bother? israel, as you point out argues that iran should not be trusted or have anything to do with nuclear ambitious. >> if you don't want to trust iran, why go and sit to negotiate. see, they cannot have it both ways. the united states can't go to vienna, geneva, and all the other place, sit with them and negotiate, take time, spend money, energy and all that and say i don't trust you. if they don't trust iran, let them go. if they trust iran, work it out. you cannot have it both ways. the problem is the united states dash it wants it both ways. "i want to negotiate but don't want to trust them." it cannot work that way, if there's no trust, there's no negotiation, there's no solution. >> negotiations will continue in 10 days. still ahead - proposal to name a
8:20 pm
street after the notorious big shows hutch his home-town has changed.
8:21 pm
8:22 pm
new york's brooklyn neighbourhood has gone through changes. proposing to name a street after a rapper is highlighting the changes. caitlin ford has more. >> reporter: two decades ago christopher wallace known as b.i.g. rapped about his home here. >> reporter: he was murdered in 1987. the streets he called home has under gone a transformation. robert price owned this shop for 20 years. >> this was a solid black neighbourhood. it's changed here. it's changed for the better. >> wallace rapped in front of the barber shop, and fan leroy
8:23 pm
wanted the area to remember him. >> i started a petition to name this after b.i.g., and hopefully it will become an honour attributed to him. >> when mccarthy presented his proposal to the community board, several said wallace was not a role model because of his involvement with drugs and guns. >> music is what they want to honour. his lyrics went from a negative to a positive. that is what i'm trying to celebrate. >> two decades after his music made the area famous, the debate is about the soul of the neighbourhood. >> how are you doing. rocky's family opened the supermarket in 1967. >> everybody that came up in this neighbourhood packed bags. that was part of growing up, if
8:24 pm
you wanted new sneakers and you did not want to sell drugs the way to do it was to pack backs, make money. >> not all of the changes have been good. >> you lost your close exit families. brown stones had the uncle on the stop, aunt in the middle and grandma down the bottom. now you don't know your neighbour. >> brooklyn becomes a trendy at least in the eyes of hipsters or yuppies or mobile young professionals. they are moving to neighbourhoods like clinton hill that were predominantly african american and working class, and, you know, housing prices are rising. individuals living there may no longer feel like this is their home. >> for some it's about embracing
8:25 pm
the new home. >> it's the cool vibe that's going on. different people, more blacks than whites. collaborating, which is cool. it's a big difference. it's definitely going to shine now. >> a shine new and old neighbours are eager to be a part of. a dietary supplement is being recalled because of links to liver damage. usp is recalling certain oxy elite sports products used for weight loss and bodybuilding. another recall - organic baby food company, plum, is recalling several products because of a manufacturing defect that may cause food to spoil. it's within baby stage two mish-mash and mid lines. parents are urged to contact the company if they have those
8:26 pm
products. >> okay. our friend is here with the sports headlines. we are finally hearing from a player involved in the mooemy bullying case. >> rickie incognito went on the offensive as he opened up about this relationship with jonathan martin. he said jonathan martin was his best friend and he regrets using the racial slurs. the text messages were taken out of context. rickie incognito was suspended by the dolphins, last week martin left the team and the league continues to conduct their own investigation. houston, you have a problem. running back airion foster decided to have back surgery for a bulging disc in his back. he'll try and play through the pain, he decided to shut it down. the cincinnati bangles needed a miracle. 2 seconds left, they need a touch down force overtime, he
8:27 pm

8:28 pm
8:29 pm
>> welcome back to al jazeera america. here are the top stories tonight. secretary of state john kerry is on the defense if after talks on
8:30 pm
iran's nuclear program ended with no deal. world powers want to kerb iran's nuclear ambags, wants relief from economic sanctions.. >> this is the first time that the p5 came together with this kind of a serious set of possible options in front of it, with a new iranian government. this changed since the election. this is a new overture and has to be put to the test very kay fully. i think there was unity there, unity there, david, with respect to getting it right and we always said - president obama has been crystal clear - don't rush, we are not in a rush, we need to get the right deal, no deal is better than a bad deal. >> in the philippines rescuers struggle to reach towns and villages, many airports remain
8:31 pm
closed and roads are impassable. pm benigno aquino imposed martial law for a state of emergency for security. al jazeera's wayne hay spoke to us about how bad the acknowledge is, we talk about the relief efforts under way. >> we have set up so many people at tacloban airport, or what is left of it. the scene behind me is what is left of the main terminal building at the airport. luckily the tarmac remains largely undamaged. the runway is okay. so crucially the military has been able to fly in here at very regular intervals bringing in aid supplies to the people badly affected by that farm. they have been bringing in food, water, shelter, medical supplies as well. all day long we are seeing a steady stream of people coming to the airport, trying to get their hands on the supplies. also so many people want to leave here, because their houses
8:32 pm
have been so badly damaged or destroyed. there is nothing in tacloban for them so they are trying to get out of this area, get back to the capital city manila to safer parts of the philippines. it is raining at the moment, there's regular showers over the past few days, a lot of people are concerned about reports of another storm and the effect that has. >> that makes recovery difficult. wayne, do you get the impression that the aid and the help arriving at the airport. is it getting to the victims who need it in the hard-hit areas. >> we are hearing regular complaints from people from tacloban, and other areas, that they are not seeing aid, any help in the form of soldiers, search and recovering, or people delivering food and water and shelter to them. like i say, many coming here to
8:33 pm
the airport to get their hands on a small bag of supplies that people in the areas that have been badly effected, saying they are not seeing people go to them enough. there are bodies laying around on the streets uncovered, there are bodies in some cases floating in the water. we are hearing a lot of bodies are taken to the makeshift evacuation centres that are set up in areas like schools or some of the sports facilities. those areas, those buildings were also so badly damaged. so it's a grim situation around the town. and one thing they are calling for as well as the basic necessities is body bags. they need more body bags to be brought in so they can begin to process the dead in a proper way. >> what about all the people who are left homeless by the storm. what are the conditions like for them? >> well, most buildings in tacloban have been either completely destroyed or suffered a fair amount of damage. so night time obviously is the
8:34 pm
hardest, but that seems to be when the rainfall comes, in the early hours of the morning, it's a difficult situation, a lot of people are scared, as you can imagine about what occurred. the wind, the storm surge was intense. obviously it's killed a lot of people, injured more, and those that survived are tormented by what happened. when light falls, there's no electricity, the place plunings into -- plunges into darkness, there's no communication. they can't call others abroad to tell them they are okay. it's a daunting prospect. they are hoping some improvement will come their way. >> thank you to wayne hay in the philippines. tomorrow leaders gather in poland for the annual talks been climate change. meetings have been criticised for failing to reach agreement on greenhouse gases. as we report activists worry the
8:35 pm
meetings fall short. >> it's the world's 10th largest consumer of coal and relies on it for electricity. poland is host to the climate change talks. activist says it's no surprise which companies the organizers chose to sponsor the event. >> they include the world's largest steel and mining company. it's activities produce over 190 million tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. that's more than the entire co2 output for oil producing venezuela. also a partner - poland's largest trick company. it runs this power stakes, a large fossil fuel power plant in the world. >> it's concerning and dangerous and we have to ensure that this conference is for the interests of people on the planet.
8:36 pm
these companies, and their bottom line is to ensure that they continue to make a max miss profits. in my mind this is akin to having cigarette companies sponsoring a conference on lung cancer and then surprised when the conference says, "smoking is acceptable and should be encouraged." others in business say it's welcome and necessary. >> business is worried about climate change, it's an issue. they have to be part of the solution, they can't do it without business. >> how to help vulnerable populations is on the agenda, as well as a new plan to replace the kito protocol and map out cuts and carbon emissions. new emissions agreements must include developing nations, india and china. >> carbon dioxide emissions from
8:37 pm
the united states remained more or less constant. add to this the emissions of other industrialized countries, and you see a decline mirroring the downturn. now look at china's emissions and you see where the real increases lie, more than 10% between 2010 and "11. at to this developing countries, and you get a sense of where they lie. >> they are not specting breakthrough agreements, those taking part hope it will lay important ground work for a future pack. many competing voices and interests, common ground will be hard to find. >> climate change is the focus of the regular sunday night look at the week ahead. as the warsaw meetings ahead philippines is reeling from typhoon haiyan. there are fears that as ocean temperatures rise, we continue to see powerful storms.
8:38 pm
the war sea meeting follows attempts to reach agreement in the climate change. the copenhagen, and protocols tried to reduce emission, none of them put a department in the problem. war sea is a stop along the way. it's to explore approaches to the problem in how to get polluters like chippa and the u.s. on board. joining me to talk about this is scott, a professor at columbian university, and andrew freeman. gentleman, thatting you for being in. as we go into the climate change talk in poland tomorrow, really, what are your hopes here? >> well, i'm not specting much. this is just another meeting, as you said, in a long pass of many meetings. previous big one was copenhagen, 2009. that was a bit of a disaster. and then there were two important meetings after that
8:39 pm
that brought about a recovery. another meeting to ensure some kind of life for the future for kito, but the big meeting is in 2015, the meeting in paris, where the world is supposed to find a new path towards bringing down global emissions. are you more optimistic. >> not necessarily, but just to lay out what the meeting is trying to do. it's trying to develop the path forward to 2015. there's a lot of disagreement about what to do. >> right. >> how do they get the countries, the developing nations like china and india, that are starting to outpace the united states on emission, and the u.s., and everybody moving forward. the united states are talking like we do not want to see a global treaty, talking about a lot of - a treaty where you have all the different countries
8:40 pm
pledging what they can and want to do and plugging that into an international framework. but at the end of the day, to make sure that all the commitments add up to something that really do something for the climate. right now we are on a path to - to outpace our carbon budget within the next 30 years. >> why is an it hard to get the players to agree on basic principles. they have been working at it for a long time. i think the - understanding the science is clear actually. i don't think it's been a problem for the negotiations. the real problem with the negotiations is all countries collectively, want to the report. what they can't figure out is how much each country ought to do as part of an overall package. that's the equity compare ability problem. and also how to have an assurance that if your country makes sacrifices, others will
8:41 pm
make sacrifices and the effect of all of this will be to change the future climate for everyone's benefit. it's just wrapping and summarising where we are. the challenge is how do we brap it up in a way that we get agreement, make sure it's in force and brings about change. the change needed is huge. it's not about reduces emissions by a little bit here and there, it's what the talks have been about in the past. it's about a fundamental change. basically you need a technological revolution to bring net emissions worldwide. meaning what they talk about doesn't make a difference, because the problem is so big, and a solution so enormous that you can't really agree to something like this in these talks. >> i think the talks are important. they are important for the following reason - no country wants to go far on its own unless it knows others will go
8:42 pm
with it. even the us, when it progressed with legs when it passed the house. >> at first, to be clear, the united states was reluctant to go along with the proposals. >> the united states is ambivalent, i would say. the united states participated actively in the ketoprotocol. the senate was never going to ratify the agreement. and we backtracked after that for some period of time. now we are moving forward again, but one reason that the administration will be a little hesitant about a treaty is because a treaty requires two-thirds majority - not easy. >> on any topic. >> much less global warming. >> i want your thoughts on the typhoon. i spoke with a person from he's in warsaw and talked about the typhoon in the philippines was a major topic, or expected
8:43 pm
to be a major topic when the talks begin. let's listen to what he said earlier. >> an interesting thing is voices from negotiators, like the lead negotiate scores from the philippines, who pleaded with theiations and fellow countries because of the impact that hurricane bopa had. looking at typhoon haiyan, and the devastation in the philippines, it will be moving to see what pressure the philippines delegation and all country delegations put on their peers in developed countries. >> the timing of this is interesting. the day before, you know, these talks we are seeing the massive devastation coming to live in the philippines, do you think the storm will change the dialogue, give negotiators a little more urgency. >> i think it will make a more powerful emotional argument that was going to be made in warsaw.
8:44 pm
it's a bureaucratic conference, in terms of the talks. >> the impact with global warming. >> it's rather uncertain about direct links between west pacific typhoons and climate change. we know several things. when a storm hits, you'll get more damage. the island states - you know, the philippines is a large developing country, but a lot of the island nations are, you know, their existence is on the line. >> when you look at the big picture, the greenhouse gases reached record levels, since 1901 global temperatures have risen 2 degrees. that may not sound like much. it could leave the arctic ocean ice free during the summers, and since 1992 sea levels rose a
8:45 pm
tenth of an inch, which is as towneding to think about. at the rate low of lies coastal cities will be underwater. why is it so hard to get people to embrace this idea that this needs to be taken seriously. >> it's a very - couple of things, it's a slow process. and if it required little to change the whole system, we would do it. but the truth is we are going to have to restructure the global energy system. which is a massive undertaking. you are relying less on what, coal burning plants. you have to stop burning coal or remove the co2 that is put into the atmosphere. we have to take a number of very substantial actions. i'm completely convinced this is worthwhile to do. if you think about this from the point of view of the negotiation, each country is a small part of the bigger picture
8:46 pm
that each one is always kind of holding back, and this is the problem, and this is why the negotiations are important. all these countries understand that if everyone holds back, the problem will get worse. the problem is how can they - the key thing - how can they bind the general dire to do something to move forward. that's what we have to do. >> in the united states, when we went to copenhagen, we had a new administration, we had a lot of hope and goodwill, it was not clear what would happen. and the summit collapsed. the u.s. has a lot more credibility with a. a regulation, the action plan, what we were doing on adaptation. china is taking a number of steps and reigning in the emissions. >> massive pollution. you're hopeful. >> i'm hopeful some of the dynamics are pushing key players further. scott is right, as he's written,
8:47 pm
this is a classic prisoners dilemma, where everybody agrees on the broader coal, but the incentive for each party is not to act towards the goal. >> how to fix the problem is the big mystery. scott and andrew, thank you both for coming in tonight. we appreciate it. >> coming up next on al jazeera america - the man at the center of the hazing scandal in the nfl speaks out - that's ahead in sport.
8:48 pm
. okay, now the sport. everyone is talking about the bullying scandal with the
8:49 pm
dolphins, it's interesting that we are hearing from a major player involved. >> yes, rickie incognito feels misunderstood. he told fox sports that jonathan martin was his best friend and that the text messages and voice mails are taken out of context. rickie incognito opened up. he said that he regrets using racial slurs, and said that this situation is not a bullying issue. instead he says that it's an accepted part of the team's locker room culture. >> when the words are put in the context, i understand why a lot of eyebrows are raised, but people don't know how john and i communicate to one another. for instance, a week before this went down, jonathan martin text me on my phone, "i will murder your whole effing family", now, did i think jonathan martin was going to murder my family, not one bit. i knew it was coming from a brother, a friend, a team-mate. that puts in context how we
8:50 pm
