“Whitey Bulger – The Biggest Rat is the story of James “Whitey” Bulger, the Boston mob boss, from his early days of crime, to his heyday running Boston’s underworld, to his escape and capture after 16 years on the run.
This book also includes Bulger’s trial and the jury verdict that found Bulger guilty of 31 of the 32 counts in the federal racketeering indictment. Bulger was also found guilty of 11 of the 19 murders included in one of the indictments.
It’s fair to say Whitey Bulger will die in jail. Bulger’s lucky he didn’t get the death penalty, which would have been a more fitting punishment for one of the most vile individuals to ever roam the face of the earth.
On July 9, 2013, Whitey Bulger’s former protégé, Kevin Weeks, hate and contempt in his eyes, took the witness stand against his former boss. The 57-year-old Weeks and Bulger were once so tight, they spoke nearly every day for more than a decade. Bulger, 83-years-old, was facing life in prison for committing more than 19 murders.
Since Weeks served only five years in prison for aiding and abetting five of Bulger’s murders, Bulger’s lawyer, J.W. Carney, tried to portray Weeks as a con artist who knew how to manipulate the justice system.
“You won against the system,” Carney told Weeks
“What did I win? What did I win?” Weeks said. “Five people are dead.”
Carney asked Weeks if the killings bothered him.
Weeks shot back, “We killed people that were rats. And I had THE BIGGEST RAT right next to me.”
Whitey Bulger, unlike Genovese turncoat, Joe Valachi; Bonanno boss, Joe Massino; and Gambino consiglieri, Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano, willingly became an FBI informant while he was still active on the streets as Boston’s mob boss. Bulger remained an FBI informant for more than 20 years.
Kevin Weeks was right. Whitey Bulger was THE BIGGEST RAT of them all.:
