I found interesting the story about Whitey 11181839_422107524629563_434860139454374437_n Bulger and John Connolly.

The two  born both in the same neighborhood.  Once in a bar Bulger offered to John Connolly still a kid an ice-cream. That ice-cream created a sort of cement between them as also written by Kevin Cullen cullen_JPG and Shelley Murphy Cullen and Murphy reporters of the Boston Globe 11143680_421228264717489_8379124047041460925_n 10929555_421228288050820_5264084193313585513_n in their book: Whitey Bulger amazon.

John Connolly started to visit Bulger’s family becoming close to Will Bulger, James Bulger’s brother, later senator and one of the most important and influential Massachusetts’ politicians.

Will Bulger stimulated John Connolly to study because according to him the teenager plenty of potentialities.

Later, John Connolly once grown up choose his path: the one to become an FBI agent.

He was back to Boston in a crucial time: mafia needed to be defeated. “Whitey” in the while back in business with the so-called “Winter Hall Gang”, created by other criminals many decades before.

Remembering their friendship, James Bulger joined his affiliates becoming another informant of the FBI.
Rifleman Flemmi the oldest informant of the FBI and someone the FBI trusted a lot.

Both Connolly and “Whitey” have always, always denied this circumstance.

Bulger called with nasty nicknames because classified as an informant of the FBI, something for the people of South Boston, unacceptable.

At first “Whitey” called for trying to help Connolly to defeat the italian mafia, much more “innocent”, in comparison to the criminal structure created by Bulger.

Impossible to believe but everyone that years, we speak of the late 70s, the beginning of the 1980s thought that it was more dangerous the italian mafia of the Angiulo of North Boston than not the criminal organization owned by Jimmy “Whitey” Bulger in South Boston.

A fight between North and South…

Bulger killed, Bulger brought wagons of drugs in South Boston. Bulger created a special cemetery for all his victims. Who knows, if for keeping them all together also in the other life. for not keeping these corpses alone and for giving to them a first grave?

Italian mafia in Boston didn’t kill and didn’t commerce drugs.
The Angiulos in certain business, that surely could interest the same “Whitey.”

It was for this reason that Bulger helped Connolly and Connolly won his battle becoming an incredibly loved agent of the FBI.

But then the situation became less clear, because “Whitey” thanks to the disappearance of the competition of the italian mafia the only Lord of Crime in South Boston and other areas.

Recently Bulger admitted that he gave bribes to the FBI for obtaining informations.

These informations brought to the death of a lot of people. Innocent ones as well.

The scandal of the cooperation of the Boston FBI with a criminal like “Whitey” Bulger still the biggest one lived by the USA.
