Most of us know him as the most notorious IRISH gangster who ran his operation out of Southie. He evaded authorities for decades and was finally was captured 6/22/11. The news of this did not break until today. I am very well rehersed in the life of Bulger and I have found him very fascinating like EagleEye. The way whitey was portrayed in Boston was how he was the man ridding Boston's streets of Drugs: a Robin Hood tale so to speak. Whitey had such a huge benevolent PR campaign that worked for him. I don't want to write an essay on him for you... but the man was the FBI's mole a RAT they relied on for intel. I firmly believe the FBI let Bulger do w/e b/c what he did was contest against the Italian Mafias in Boston and he helped take down that network of families. Bulger was used as a device to dismantle the inner workings of other crime organizations/syndicates. A DEA agent swore he saw Bulger in San Monica 3 years ago and the agent pursued him down into a subway and whitey gave him the slip and disappeared. He is a fascinating man you should read up on him. FYI the Lady who gave the tip made her name PUBLIC... Is she asking for a bullet? Stupid move.
