shows how the likes of H. Paul Rico and John "Zip" Connolly
helped Whitey Bulger, and the "everything is a deal, no deal
too small" political climate served Billy well. From murdering girlfriends who knew too much to hobnobbing with the likes of
Kennedy and Kerry at that annual St. Patrick's Day breakfast,
the Brothers Bulger got away with murder and corruption. A few
amusing anecdotes, like how Gerry Anguilo, upon being informed
that a fellow gangster was dead, shouted, "He can't be dead!
He owes me $30,000!!" Can't make up stuff like that.
Fans of Carr's column and radio show should be delighted.
He has more photos and information at his various websites.
Also the states biggest crime figure was one brother, and the other ran the state. And it gets better. The gang had a club house. The house was next door, not down the street, or near, but right next to.....Massachusetts Senate leader Billy Bulgers house..tell me he knew NOTHING about what these people were involved with. RIIIGHT. Don't get me started on his obgoing lawsuits where he has been trying to sweeten his annual six-figure pension by $32,000
His second brother jackie lied to grand juries investigating his fugitive brother and lost his pension as a court clerk because of it. Now ONE brother is involved with the fugitive and has taken his phone calls but the other brother has not? No freakingw ay..the whole family stinks to high heaven and they all should share a cell togther, but that sadly will never happen. I really dont think the FBI wants to catch Whitey because they do not want him to air all their dirty laundry..if he is prosecuted he may say things that will shake the FBI to their foundations..and that will never do.
