Bulger gives battle and wants to tell his truth


As wrote by the Boston 10929555_421228288050820_5264084193313585513_nGlobe last day, “Whitey” Bulger is asking the Supreme Court of the US to overturn his convictions. Bulger participated at 11 murders and was the mobster of the Winter Hill Gang a criminal structure born a long time ago and at the end run by the same “Whitey” and dead once “Whitey” disappeared from Boston.

The Globe wrote that Bulger filed a petition for “a writ of certiorari.” In a few words he is asking to the Supreme Court of taking in great consideration his case.

Bulger tried also to the First US Circuit Court of Appeals but without any success.

Bulger hasn’t been a saint. He killed, he introduced wagons of drugs in South Boston, he helped the FBI to defeat, for adding more power at his own criminal organization the italian Mafia, much more “pacific” than the Irish criminal structure created by “Whitey.”

Bulger run away from Boston when was ready for him a racketeering indictment and when mainly the wind was changed forever for him and his affiliates.

He escaped away from Boston with his historical girlfriend Teresa Stanley. Four children that James Bulger grew up with love, he started to travel with her. Later Teresa said to “Whitey” that she couldn’t live in this way, not in the wild, not like this, not with four children waiting for her maternal love.

“Whitey” understood and he had ready his plan B: Catherine Greig, his second historical girlfriend.

Cathy Greig, in love with “Whitey” from decades, truly happy to follow him wherever the mobster wanted to go.

It was 1995 when the mobster left Boston for good and Bostonians thought that maybe “Whitey” was in a foreign country.

But…Can a mobster leave his territory?

It was 2011 when a nice old man was very well seen and appreciated by everyone in Santa Monica. He was helpful with his neighbors, he gave good advices, he loved to be a good man for everyone. His wife loved to take care of poor abandoned cats. His name was Charlie Gasko.

A crucial year for the fight against terrorism. Osama bin Laden was found and killed. Jimmy “Whitey” Bulger from the second place in the top ten list of the Most Wanted People of the FBI became the first one.

Federals didn’t lose time.

What to do now?

Which was the best key for opening the door that would have conducted them directly at “Whitey?” The answer was simple: Catherine Greig.
She was their key, she was their card to play.

The couple who lived in an apartment in Santa Monica, peaceful.

Once they started to make friendship with an ex model and ex Miss Iceland, Anna. Anna and Catherine loved to feeding cats together.

When Anna left the old couple and returned to Europe one day she was so surprised to seeing them at the CNN international.
Oh, she was also shocked. She understood that the man called Charlie was the infamous mobster of South Boston “Whitey” Bulger. She called the FBI telling to the federals everything.

At the same time after the capture and assassination of Bin Laden, “Whitey” didn’t live anymore. He was more than sure that 2 million of dollars could surely be a good argument for calling the FBI. After all he was recognizable. Someone would have called the FBI of his neighbors. “Whitey” more than certain of it.
He started to live as a prisoner in his own apartment. He didn’t go out anymore, he stopped to socialize, he didn’t search anyone anymore.

He avoided all contacts with his beloved neighbors.

It is still unclear if other people of the neighborhood of Santa Monica CA, where Bulger lived tempted to call the FBI because maybe they recognized him, but surely everyone started to be worried for that man that they called Charlie Gasko. C What happened?

Maybe some people knew, but they knew the other face of Bulger.

Catherine Greig started to invent a lot of stories. “He is becoming more sick, problem here, problem there, he doesn’t want to go ur and he doesn’t want to see anyone” for justifying this behavior.

Bulger once captured started frantically to write to all his neighbors: “Don’t believe at what they’re saying.”

The trial of 2013 put again in prison both Greig than Bulger. Greig because she refused to testify. It is in fact important to discover who helped the couple while on the run but Catherine preferred not to speak. 21 months of prison.

Plus Greig accused of conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, conspiracy to commit identity fraud, and identity fraud for other eight years and a fine of $150,000.

While Bulger can end his days in prison at the moment he said that his trial was a “sham”, using the Boston’s accent 🙂

According to Bulger no one permitted him to speak during his trial, so violating a constitutional rights.

“Whitey” wanted to speak. “Whitey” wanted to tell.

But what exactly?

Dead men tell no tales and a dead man can’t tell if this portion of tale Bulger wants to tell from years it’s true.

Bulger assures that a now-deceased federal prosecutor promised him the immunity decades ago. An immunity for all his crimes, murder included.

So, the story of “Whitey” Bulger appears more than opened and his legal team with Hank Brennan ready to give battle.

Johnny Depp portrayed a real “Whitey” Bulger in the movie Black Mass directed by Scott Cooper.
Filmed in Boston the movie has been appreciated by critic and viewers and that one has been the credible return of Johnny 11033763_421229168050732_1328938859024723063_n 11143339_421229144717401_5178388869574157269_n Depp as a dramatic actor in a role of a real person.

Johnny would have wanted to meet “Whitey” Bulger but the mobster didn’t want to meet the actor, declining the request.

The mobster in fact in strong polemic with the two former investigative reporters of the Boston Globe Dick Lear and Gerard O’Neill and their book Black Mass: Whitey Bulger, The FBI and a devil’s deal inspiration for Black Mass, first real historical reconstruction of the criminal life of Jimmy “Whitey” Bulger.

Johnny Depp concluded saying that after all that understood the position of the mobster.
