State of the Union address – Donald Trump blasts wealthy elite’s hypocrisy as they ‘push for open borders while living behind walls’ in fiery Congress speech

Category : News , World News

DONALD Trump last night blasted wealthy elites for backing “open borders while living behind walls”.
In a State of the Union speech marked by calls for unity, the president did not hold back in his criticism of Democrat politicians blocking his $5.7bn border wall plan.

Speaking to Congress on Tuesday evening, Trump accused “wealthy politicians and donors” of pushing “for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards.”
He said that his administration is calling for “safe, lawful, modern and secure” border security.
The president announced he had sent another 3,750 troops to defend against the “onslaught” of illegal immigration.
And he said that the US has a “moral duty” to protect its citizens – as well as immigrants who entered the country legally to “enrich our nation an strengthen our society in countless ways”.
“I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever – but they have to come in legally”, the president said.

‘I’LL GET IT BUILT’
Calling for steel barriers to be erected in areas that require the most need, Trump added: “Put simply, walls work and walls save lives.”
He said: “This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier – not just a simple concrete wall.
“It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way, way down.”
The president then added: “In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall. But the proper wall never got built.”
Looking steely-eyed, he added: “I’ll get it built.”
Democrats call the wall a waste of money and ineffective.
ECONOMIC SUCCESS
Meanwhile, the president flaunted America’s economic success under his administration.
The jobs market is vibrant, he said – while he boasted of the United States’ energy production capabilities.
But he claimed that “ridiculous partisan investigations” like the Russian collusion probe could derail America’s prosperity.
He said: “An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations.”
Democrats, who now control the House, planned a series of probes into the Trump administration.
A special prosecutor is investigating Russian meddling into the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Russia denies meddling and Trump has said there was no collusion.

Trump’s prime-time address – the longest since President Clinton in 2000 – came at a critical moment in his presidency.
He pushed his party into a lengthy government shutdown over the border wall – only to cave to Democrats who refused to hand over funding.
With another shutdown deadline looming on February 15, the president has few options for getting Congress to fund a border wall.
And he risks further alienating his party if he tries to bypass lawmakers by declaring a national emergency instead.
But Trump began his speech with a tone of “cooperation, compromise and the common good”.
He said: “I stand here ready to work with you to achieve historic breakthroughs for all Americans”.
CALLS FOR UNITY
The president added that Americans are “hoping that we will govern not as two parties, but as one nation.”
He continued: “We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make.
“We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.
“Tonight I ask you to choose greatness.”
But as he condemned political turmoil in Venezuela, Trump declared that “America will never be a socialist country”.
His remark was seen as targeting high-profile Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders who identify as socialists.

OLIVE BRANCH
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was praised by Democrats for her hard-line negotiating during the shutdown, sat behind Trump throughout the speech.
She joined several other Democrat women in wearing white – the colour worn by suffragettes.
But reaching out an olive branch to opponents, Trump praised the record-breaking number of women in the American workforce.
Democrat congresswoman, who were the big winners in the recent mid-term elections, then stood for applause.
At this point, the president joked: “Don’t sit down yet, you’re going to love this.”
Pointing to the Congresswomen, he added: “We also have more women serving in Congress than at any time before”.
Shouts of “USA! USA!” then rang out from both sides of the chamber – one of many occasions the chant was bellowed by lawmakers.

In other pitches across the political divide, Trump announced:

He was eager to work with Congress on a $1bn infrastructure investment
Efforts to bring about cheaper prescription medications
He wishes to reduce rates of childhood cancer
Efforts to create nationwide paid family leave
A campaign to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030

And the 72-year-old Trump hearkened back to moments of American greatness.
He celebrated the 50th anniversary year of the moon landing as astronaut Buzz Aldrin looked on from the audience.
Heralding the liberation of Europe from the Nazis, Trump led the House chamber in singing happy birthday to a Holocaust survivor sitting with first lady Melania Trump.
The president said: “Together, we represent the most extraordinary nation in all of history.
“What will we do with this moment? How will we be remembered?”

Let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: children, born and unborn, are made in the image of God

President Donald TrumpState of the Union speech 2019

But the president also defended his political stomping ground with fervent opposition to the relaxation of abortion laws.
He said: “To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”
To cheers from Republicans, Trump added: “Let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: children, born and unborn, are made in the image of God.”

KIM MEETING
Trump also defended his record on military spending – and his administration’s efforts to get allies to “pay their fair share”.
The president said: “We will never apologise for advancing America’s interests.”
And he praised his policy on North Korea, saying: “If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea.”
He also announced he would be meeting Kim Jong Un for a further round of talks in Vietnam on 27 and 28 February.
Trump has said that his outreach to Kim and their first meeting last June in Singapore opened a path to peace.
But there is not yet a concrete plan for how denuclearization could be implemented.
US intelligence chiefs believe there is little likelihood Kim will voluntarily give up his nuclear weapons or missiles capable of carrying them.
Private analysts reviewing commercial satellite imagery have assessed that the North is still developing nuclear and missile technology despite suspending tests.

FOREIGN POLICY
As his economic advisers work to complete a trade deal with China, Trump said any agreement “must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs.”
He also called out Iran for threats against Israel.
The President said: “We will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants Death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people”.
Trump also gave his support for an effort to coax Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro into leaving power.
And he declaring the Islamic State militant group all but defeated.
Trump’s guests for the speech included Anna Marie Johnson – a woman whose life sentence for drug offences was commuted by the president.
Joshua Trump, a sixth-grade student from Wilmington, Delaware, who has been bullied over his last name, was also invited.
They sat with first lady Melania Trump – who wore a £2,000 Burberry military-style black outfit during the address.

Rapper 21 Savage targeted because he slammed Donald Trump over US migrant crisis in new song, star’s lawyer claims

Category : News , World News

RAPPER 21 Savage may have been targeted by US immigration officials because he blasted Donald Trump in a new song, his lawyers have claimed.
The rapper, who claimed to hail from a tough US neighbourhood, was arrested on Sunday for being in America illegally after he was found to be British.
During a performance of the song ‘A Lot’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, 21 Savage changed the lyrics to the song to take a shot at U.S. border policies under President Trump
The British-born, Grammy-nominated musician was arrested in AtlantaInstagram

His manager said he was being held in lockdown for 23 hours a day
The star, 26 – nominated for two awards at next week’s Grammys – could face deportation. Rapper 21 Savage is being held in federal immigration custody.
His lawyers suggested he’d been targeted by US immigration officials because he attacked them in a new song.
During a performance of the song ‘A Lot’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, 21 Savage changed the lyrics to the song to take a shot at U.S. border policies under President Trump.
“Been through some things so I can’t imagine my kids stuck at the border, Flint still need water, People was innocent, couldn’t get lawyers,” he rapped.

Did you know 21 Savage before he was a famous rapper? Do you have details of his true background? Contact us on corey.charlton@the-sun.co.uk / 0207 782 4569

A statement released on Tuesday and signed by his six-strong legal team states: “There continues to be no legal reason to detain Mr Abraham-Joseph for a civil law violation that occurred when he was a minor, especially when people in his exact situation are routinely released by ICE.
“Many have speculated as to possible ulterior motives for his arrest and detention, including that he released music five days prior to his arrest by ICE, which included new lyrics condemning the behaviour of immigration officials for their detention of children at the border.
“We are unaware of why ICE apparently targeted Mr Abraham-Joseph, but we will do everything possible to legally seek his release and pursue his available relief in immigration court.”
Elsewhere today his manager claimed the rapper was held on lockdown for 23 hours a day.
Stone Mound Meezy tweeted: “He is in lockdown for 23hrs of the day no tv or any communication besides our 10 min phone calls”.
He later deleted the tweet.
MOVED TO US AGED 12 ON ONE-YEAR VISA
The rapper claimed to have grown up in a crime-hit community in Atlanta, Georgia, taking a gun to school at 11 or 12 before joining a street gang.
But his birth certificate shows he was born in Newham, east London, in 1992 to UK-born parents Heather Joseph and Kevin Emmons and named Sheyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph.
He moved to the US with mum Heather in 2005 aged 12 on a one-year visa.
US immigration chiefs ICE said it was not renewed, adding: “His public persona is false.”
‘EXCEPTIONALLY STRONG TIES’ TO THE US
However his lawyers said he lost his legal immigrant status in 2006 “through no fault of his own” and should be eligible to fight his removal from the country in court.
21 Savage, 26, has three children who are US citizens, his legal team say, as well as his mum being a lawful resident and four siblings who are either permanent residents or citizens.
They argue the rapper has “exceptionally strong ties” to his adopted country.
And he is in the process of obtaining a U visa – a visa for victims of crime – because he was the victim of a deadly shooting in 2013, the statement adds.
They said ICE should release 21 Savage from custody and delay his removal from the country while he awaits to hear back on the visa,
They also dispute ICE’s claim the rapper has a criminal conviction [for drug charges in 2014].
HARD-HITTING LYRICS ABOUT GUNS AND CRIME
Until Sunday the rapper was believed to have been born and raised in Atlanta, the city he used as inspiration for his hard-hitting lyrics about guns and crime.
In an interview with Fader magazine in 2016, he painted a grim picture of a crime-ridden upbringing in Georgia.
The article referenced him growing up in “beat up apartments” in Atlanta and being shown his first gun at the age of eight by his uncle.
He also brags about being the youngest pupil ever to take a gun to Stone Mountain Middle School in DeKalb County, Georgia, when he was 11 or 12.
The star claims to have been sent to a youth detention centre in Georgia, before dropping out of school and joining a street gang.
He was allegedly involved in robbery, grand theft auto and drug dealing, and aged 19 he lost his best friend and right-hand man Larry in a shootout.
On his 21st birthday he was shot six times himself in a failed assassination attempt, which led to him taking the name 21 Savage.
In another interview he said the ‘21’ in his name is a reference to a street gang in the city and his songs often refer to his past in East Atlanta’s Zone 6.
But records revealed the rapper, one of 11 children born to his mum Heather, was born in London.
$8 MILLION RAP STAR
21 Savage, a dad-of-three, has been nominated for two awards at the 2019 Grammys, including record of the year for Rockstar with Post Malone – the track reached No 1 in the US and UK singles charts.
In December his second album, I Am > I Was, debuted at No 1 on the US Billboard 200.

Michael Schumacher’s son Mick pays tribute to stricken dad by posing in his old F1 Ferrari at Maranello museum

Category : News , World News

MICHAEL Schumacher’s son Mick has paid tribute to the stricken driving legend by posing in his old F1 Ferrari.
The teen, who is following in his dad’s footsteps as a Ferrari driver, has admitted it’s sometimes “difficult” to be the son of Formula 1’s most successful racer of all time.

Mick Schumacher / Instagram He shared photos of his trip to Italy’s Maranello museum[/caption]
To connect with his dad’s legacy, Mick, 19, visited Italy’s Maranello museum which has a special exhibition dedicated to the German champion.
He shared photos of his trip on Instagram, with one snap showing him sitting inside a Ferrari his dad raced.
Ferrari unveiled the exhibition on 3 January to mark Schumacher’s 50th birthday.
“Michael has a special place in the history of Ferrari,” the team said.
RACING CHAMP’S LEGACY
“The museum is decorated with images from the unforgettable years that the seven-time world champion gave to all at Ferrari.”
Schumacher drove for the Italian F1 team for 11 years between 1996 and 2006 and won five of his seven world titles with them.
But the champ suffered severe head injuries in a ski accident in the French Alps on 29 December 2013.
He has not been seen in public since and is receiving care at the family’s home in Gland, Switzerland.
Corinna, his wife, and other relatives said in a statement: “You can be sure that he is in the very best of hands and that we are doing everything humanly possible to help him.”
‘BAD SIDES’ TO BEING SCHUEY’S SON
Mick has since revealed that there are “bad sides” to being Schumacher’s son.
“I am happy to be the son of the greatest F1 racer of all time. I admire him for that,” Mick insists.
“And even if sometimes it can be a bit difficult, it is what it is. There are good sides to it and there are bad sides,” Schumacher told the FIA’s Auto magazine.
Mick was last month confirmed as a Ferrari driver for their academy alongside his commitments racing in Formula 2 next season.
Ferrari boss, Mattia Binotto, said: “For someone like me who has known him from birth, there’s no doubt that welcoming Mick into Ferrari has a special emotional meaning.
FOLLOWING IN HIS FATHER’S FOOTSTEPS
“But we have chosen him for his talent and the human and professional qualities that have already distinguished him despite his young age.”
Schumacher, who won the European F3 title last season, added: “I am thrilled that Ferrari has entered a partnership with me and my next future in motorsport will be in red, being part of the Ferrari Driver Academy and also of the Scuderia Ferrari Family.
“Again, this is another step forward in the right direction, and I can only profit from the immense amount of expertise bundled there.
“Be sure I will make everything to extract whatever helps me achieve my dream, racing in Formula One.
“It is more than obvious that Ferrari has a big place in my heart since I was born and also in the hearts of our family, so I am delighted on a personal level about this opportunity as well.
“At this stage it is however also time to say thank you to my family, friends and partners who supported me all along and helped me arrive at this point.”

Tupac is ALIVE and may release new music with Cardi B, Suge Knight’s son bizarrely claims

Category : News , World News

TUPAC Shakur is alive and “doing good” and is about to release new music, Suge Knight’s son has claimed.
J. Knight, whose dad is imprisoned rapper Suge, insisted Tupac is back in the studio – despite the star being killed in a drive-by shooting in September 1996.
Rex Features Suge Knight, left, with Tupac in April 1996[/caption]
“I’m definitely going to bring new Tupac music for you guys,” he told DailyMailTV.
“Trust me. Tupac is good, Tupac is good. People can’t fathom to believe that I have new music on the way from him.”
He refused to put a timeline on the new release, instead saying: “I’m moving like a business man. I’m a mogul millennial.”
J. Knight’s notorious dad added fuel to the fire by hinting that Tupac would work with artists like Cardi B.
“Cardi B is probably the most aggressive entertainer in the biz today. And I think she’s the female version of Tupac. Tupac with a skirt. Yeah,” he said.
After these comments aired, J. Knight shared a picture of Cardi on Instagram, saying: “Bardi B #NEWDEATHROW S***!”
‘THIS AIN’T NO JOKE’
It comes weeks after J. Knight caused a stir by writing on his Instagram: “I got Pac back in the studio. New music coming.”
He later added: “This ain’t a joke”.
J. Knight also shared images of “New Death Row,’ Tupac’s old record label.
Previously the son of the Death Ross Records boss had claimed Tupac was still alive and living in Malaysia.
He later wrote: “First they call you crazy. Then they doubt you.
“And then they forget how they was treating you at first. Ion [I don’t even] take it personal just an observation.[sic].”
Sun Online has understandably been unable to verify these new claims.
WILD CLAIMS
Suge Jr’s statements are the latest wild claims about the 25-year-old who was shot four times in Las Vegas more than 20 years ago and died in hospital six days later.
The gunman has never been caught.
Wild conspiracy theories connected to his death have swirled about ever since with some not even accepting the star is dead.
Too Short, a friend of Tupac, believes the rapper is not dead.
Responding to a question recently asking if the founder of Death Row Records set up the killing, he denied it, adding: “Because he’s not dead.”

China may unleash hypersonic railgun that fires missiles at SEVEN TIMES the speed of sound in just six years

Category : News , World News

CHINA could unleash the world’s most powerful naval gun that fires missiles at seven times the speed of sound in just six years, US intelligence insiders claim.
The hypersonic railgun, which is said to be capable of striking targets 124 miles away, was successfully tested last year, according to Chinese media.
Handout China could unleash a deadly hypersonic railgun in just six years, intelligence insiders claim[/caption]
Images of the vessel undergoing sea trials were released on Chinese social media last monthTwitter
And now sources with direct knowledge of a US intelligence report told CNBC that the space-age weapon will be ready for war by 2025.
If the reports are correct, Beijing will have beaten the world in developing the superweapon.
Rumours first circulated last year when images shared on social media showed the Haiyang Shan being loaded with the oddly shaped weapon.
And last month, a hazy image of the ship sailing on the open ocean has been released on China’s tightly controlled social media networks.
The images suggest Beijing has beaten the United States and Russia to getting the next generation weapon into operational testing.
CNBC claims the railgun was first seen as early as 2011 and underwent testing in 2014.
READY FOR WAR
Between 2015 and 2017, the weapon was reportedly calibrated to strike at extended ranges, making it even more deadly.
By December 2017, the weapon was successfully mounted on a warship and began at-sea testing.
According to The Drive, official US reports suggest the Chinese cannon can hit targets nearly 125 miles away, and the People’s Liberation Army plans to have their navy equipped with the weapon by 2025.
A railgun is a type of weapon that uses powerful electromagnets to accelerate projectiles to very high speeds.
Conventional weapons typically use explosives or propellant to launch ammunition, but electromagnetic forces make it possible for a railgun to achieve a much higher “muzzle velocity”.
This means that while a normal gun might manage a projectile speed of around 2km/s, a railgun could blast out projectiles 50 per cent faster, at at least 3km/s.
FUTURISTIC SUPER WEAPON
It also means that you don’t need to transport explosive propellants or warheads, which could make a railgun-toting warship much safer than traditional vessels.
Details of China’s railgun hit the web from an analyst called Dafeng Cao, who observes China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN).
Cao sourced a number of images of a PLAN Type 072III-class warship from China’s social media site Weibo, apparently showing a railgun on board.
The analyst says there are several key clues, including the short, thick barrel, which would be unsuitable for long-range explosive weapons.
He also cites a verified Weibo account that reportedly belongs to a retired China naval officer, who said that a ship-mounted railgun had been approved years ago.
According to the officer, the Haiyang Shan warship was a great platform to test the weapon thanks to its large deck area.

Several contractors attempted to build a railgun system for US ships for years, including BAE Systems, which created a prototype.
The gun was mooted to shoot projectiles at speeds of more than Mach 7 – that’s seven times the speed of sound – over a range of 100 miles.
But the project was eventually scrapped due to budget issues and a lack of interest.

National Enquirer – out today – claims to have followed Bezos for four months across five states to catch him ‘cheating’ multiple times
The magazine tracked the couple “across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and ‘quality time’ in hidden love nests.”

It hits stands with its full story on Thursday.

Sources said that Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, – who also works as a helicopter pilot – got to know each other through her husband Whitesell, one of Hollywood’s most powerful men.
He is agent to stars including Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Kevin Costner, Hugh Jackman, plus a host of other A-listers.
Patrick, Lauren and Jeff were even pictured together at a 2016 event for the movie Manchester By The Sea.
But sources say Lauren became closer to Bezos AFTER she separated with Whitesell before Christmas.
An exclusive source told Page Six “Patrick and Lauren have socialized with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years, because both (now former) couples have houses in Seattle.
“Patrick and Lauren Sanchez have been separated for a while. Their marriage has been off and on for a while, and they tried hard to fix things, but in the fall they officially separated. She had told Patrick that she has been recently seeing Jeff Bezos,” a source said.

Sanchez and Whitesell wed in 2005 and have two young children.
The Enquirer claims it caught him cheating “no fewer than six times in 14 days.”
The mag is owned by Trump ally CEO David Pecker, who openly despises the Bezos owned Washington Post.
Lauren, a former co-host on Fox 11’s “Good Day LA,” has been a guest host on ABC’s “The View” and “Extra.”
She was also the original host of Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” She also runs a company called Black Ops Aviation, which specializes in shooting aerial shots for TV shows, movies and commercials.
Jeff and Mackenzie wed the year before he founded Amazon, are not thought to have signed a pre-nuptial agreement, according to reports.
Divorce laws in their home state Washington say wealth made during a marriage must be split 50-50.
Half of Bezos’s fortune would make award-winning author MacKenzie the world’s richest woman.
And their break-up could dwarf the £2.9billion French tycoon Alec Wildenstein paid to ex-wife Jocelyn in 1999.
Bezos and MacKenzie, who have four kids, said they broke up after a “trial separation”.

But their Twitter statement added: “We remain cherished friends.”

He set up Amazon as an online bookstore in his garage in 1994 employing his wife as an accountant for the start-up.
His wife is said to have supported him as he turned it into the world’s biggest stock market-listed firm.
They have homes in LA, New York and three other US cities worth a total £93million.
Bezos also owns the Washington Post newspaper.

Teen who sold his KIDNEY to buy a new iPhone too ill to work and can’t leave bed

Category : News , World News

A MAN sold his kidney so he could buy a new iPhone – but is now bed-ridden and unable to work, according to reports.
The donor, known only as Wang, earned £2,528 (22,000 yuan) when he flogged the organ on the Chinese black market.

The man, now 25, sold it when he was 17-year’s old.
Local media reports that he wanted to buy new tech but his family was too poor to afford the gadgets.
It is claimed he found dodgy organ harvesting middle-men on an online forum called QQ.
Speaking to CNTV.cncn, Wang said: “At the time, I wanted to buy an iPad2, but I didn’t have any money.
He had the gory op to afford a new iPhoneAlamy
“When I was on the Internet, I had a kidney agent send a message, saying that selling a kidney can give me 20,000.”
He took a secret trip from his home in the eastern Anhui Province to the southern Hunan Province, it is claimed.
He did not let his parents know about the plans.
Two surgeons, a surgery assistant and a nurser allegedly carried out the sick op.
A sick recipient paid £17,258 – and £7,860 in add-ons – for the organ, it is claimed.
Wang treated himself to an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 with the spoils.
Cops were called when his mum found out what he had done, and an investigation was launched.
Nine people were jailed for being involved in 2012.

DJ, 50, nabbed for 1992 rape and murder of school teacher by his sister’s DNA kit results

Category : News , World News

A DJ has admitted raping and strangling a schoolteacher in 1992 – after being linked to the murder by his sister’s DNA kit results.
Raymond Charles Rowe killing 25-year-old Christy Mirack at her apartment in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 27 years ago.

She was found by her headteacher, beaten to death with a chopping board and choked with her own sweatshirt.
Investigators had been stumped over the 27-year-old cold-case until DNA from the crime scene led to Rowe’s half sister.
She had submitted a sample to a popular genealogy database, cops said.
The breakthrough lead them to Rowe, 50, who had lived just miles from where the killing occurred.

Undercover police monitored the suspect and collected his DNA from a used water bottle and chewing gum at a school where he was DJing last year.
It matched DNA recovered from the carpet in the victim’s home.
Her brother, Vince Mirack, told the killer in court: “I can only hope that the remainder of your life is as painful to you as the last 26 years have been to my family.”
“We never let this case go,” said Lancaster District Attorney Craig Stedman.
“This has not been easy. But one of the reasons we’ve stuck with it and never forgotten it is it’s so disturbing.”
Christy had her coat and gloves on and was on her way to deliver Christmas presents to students and co-workers when Rowe forced his way into her apartment.
Her roommate had left only 15 minutes before.

Christy’s jaw was broken, and an autopsy found wounds on her neck, back, chest and face.
The prosecutor said a wooden cutting board found near her body is believed to have been used, and she was probably strangled with her own sweater.
The headteacher of her school went to check up on her because she had not shown up for work and was not answering calls.
He discovered her body on the living room floor.
DA Stedman hired a private firm to dig through DNA databases
Prosecutors said they aren’t sure whether Rowe and Christy knew each other.
He lived about four miles from her in 1992, and the prosecutor said Christy’s home was on a route home form his job.
