Whitey Bulger To Be Arraigned On 19 Murder Counts

BOSTON (AP) — Reputed crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger is due back in federal court this week to be arraigned on a racketeering indictment charging him for his alleged role in 19 killings.

Bulger, the former leader of the notorious Winter Hill Gang, eluded authorities for 16 years until he was caught in Santa Monica, Calif., on June 22.

Bulger was also a top-echelon FBI informant who provided the agency with information on the New England Mob, his gang’s main rivals.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz previews Whitey’s arraignment:

His corrupt relationship with Boston FBI agents was a source of embarrassment for the agency. Former Agent John Connolly Jr. was convicted of racketeering charges for protecting Bulger and his cohort, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi.

The 81-year-old Bulger is due to be arraigned Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Boston.

    So he will be arrainged on the 19 murder charges? Big deal. The ones who did the killing are walking the streets of Boston free men. Yup absolutely free after murdering, torturing, beating and many other horrific atrocities. John Mottorano, Kevin Weeks, the bigger rats than Whitey murdered these people at the behest of Whitey and are free men.

    Convicet Whitey for all 19 but where is the justice with these two thugs walking the streets of Boston? None whatsoever!!!!!!!!

    I agree with Buddy, they all turned on James Bulger, wrote books, made money, told tall tales and are free. I hope Mr. Bulger walks away from all this. a free man.
