Boston Herald


Over the course of a malevolent career that spanned more than half a century, Whitey Bulger, our government says, reaped $25.2 million. Consider the specificity of that figure. The feds aren't using qualifiers like "approximately," or "in the neighborhood of" or even "around" $25 million. The ".2" tells you the feds have done some serious calculating, most likely based on hours and hours of conversations they've had with pals like Stevie Flemmi, Kevin Weeks and Kevin O'Neil to name just a few. The idea is to divvy up The White Man's rancid fortune among those who suffered the most under his FBI-sponsored reign....

Appearing in court for the first time since his indictment in a North Providence corruption scandal, Rhode Island developer Richard P. Baccari Sr. pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of conspiracy and bribery. Baccari, the CEO of Churchill & Banks, is accused of participating in a $50,000 kickback scheme that landed three former North Providence councilmen in prison in 2011. The developer made a brief mid-afternoon appearance before Magistrate Judge Patricia Sullivan, and he was arraigned on charges handed up in an Oct. 23 indictment, a development that his own lawyers have described as "shocking".....

The Daily Beast


Long before a guilty verdict was delivered in the trial of James "Whitey" Bulger, the once-fearsome mob boss had taken on the demeanor of a defeated man. Many observers noted that, as the trial ambled through its final days, Bulger appeared to be shrinking. He and his attorneys, J.W. Carney and Hank Brennan, seemed to become frustrated in their inability to make the case they had hoped to make, and in the end, Bulger quit. He declined to take the stand in his own defense and sat glum for the remainder of the trial, with nary a "fuck you" or "you suck" remaining in his verbal arsenal.....

Anthony M. Cardinale has been there practically from the beginning. It was the Boston lawyer's motion, filed in the late 1990s during his representation of "Cadillac" Frank Salemme, that caused U.S. District Court Judge Mark L. Wolf to conclude that James Bulger and Stephen Flemmi were top-echelon informants for the FBI. In today's Bulger Beat podcast, Cardinale talks about the evidence mounting against Bulger, who he calls a "psychotic" narcissist, and criticizes his defense team for the tacks it has taken at trial. "I don't know what they're doing," Cardinale says, "other than trying to save his reputation…and make [Bulger] look like a tough guy".....

Doghouse Boxing


Pro boxing is a contentious, conflict ridden industry, as a sport and a business. Obviously the major fighters and promoters are well known to the public.

Black Mass: The Irish Mob, the Boston FBI, and a Devil's Deal


Two boys - John Connolly and James "Whitley" Bulger - grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the mid-1970s, they would meet again. By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI's Boston office and Whitley had become godfather of the Irish mob. Connolly had an idea, a scheme that might bring Bulger into the FBI fold and John Connolly into the Bureau's big leagues. But Bulger had other plans. "Black Mass" is the story of what happened beween them - a dark deal to trade secrets and take down Boston's Italian Mafia in exchange for "immunity" - that spiralled out of control, leading to murders, drug dealing.......
