Crime Boss James “Whitey” Bulger Arrested in Los Angeles

By the Left Coast Rebel

Incredible news today, FBI's Most Wanted crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger has been found and arrested in Santa Moncica, California.


Legendary Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger, who has been on the run for more than a decade, was arrested Wednesday in Santa Monica, multiple law enforcement sources told The Times.

Bulger, 81, has been the subject of several books and was the inspiration for "The Departed," a 2006 Martin Scorsese film staring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson.

Bulger fled Boston in late 1994 as federal agents were about to arrest him in connection with 21 killings, racketeering and other crimes that spanned the early 1970s to the mid-1980s.

The arrest came as the FBI launched a media campaign in 14 cities to help determine Bulger’s whereabouts.

Did you know that Showtime's disturbing, dark, hit show "Brotherhood" is based upon the real-life story of Irish-American siblings former Massachusetts state senator William Bulger and FBI's most-wanted James "Whitey" Bulger?

  1. Must have felt at home with all the other crooks! (Politicians)

  2. Bulger, at 81, and after a decade plus search kinda leaves the FBI a day late and a dollar short for all intense and purposes.

    Howie Carr, Boston's conservative talk show host on his daily radio talk show today noted that Whitey congratulated the arresting officer for a job well done.

    Gee, I wonder what Whitey was really saying. My guess is that after 12 years of alluding the feds he was merely striking another slap to the face of the FBI.

    What would really be interesting is to know exactly what part Whitey's brother {Ex Massachusetts Senate President) played in covering for him.

    We'll likely never know...
