Reporter Trying To Finish The 153rd Straight Story About Accused Mass Murderer Whitey Bulger That Doesn’t Mention His Brother Was The Massachusetts Senate President And President Of UMass

Whitey BulgerBOSTON — Jurors are expected to hear more grisly details about reputed mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger’s reign of terror in Boston when a former hit man testifies against his ex-boss in the closely watched racketeering and murder trial on Monday.

The 83-year old, known as “Whitey” for the shock of blond hair he had even as a child, is accused of running Boston’s “Winter Hill Gang” for decades and threatening to kill small-time criminals unless they paid protection money. He has pleaded not guilty to all counts. The trial marks the final chapter in one of Boston’s longest-running crime dramas, bringing some closure to families of the 19 murder victims who are planning to come to the waterfront courthouse daily for the trial that is expected to last three to four months.
