SNITCH A MASS KILLER, GANG BOSS CONVICTED OF 11 MURDERS WHILE AN FBI INFORMANT – Wednesday August 14 2013

– James “Whitey” Bulger, the Boston mob boss who became one of the most wanted fugitives in the US, has been convicted of a string of 11 killings and other gangland crimes – many committed while he was said to be an FBI informant.
Bulger, 83, showed no reaction upon hearing the verdict, which closed a case that not only transfixed the city with its grisly violence but exposed corruption in the Boston FBI and an overly cosy relationship between the bureau and its underworld snitches.
Bulger was charged primarily with racketeering, a catch-all offence that listed 33 criminal acts.
Among them were 19 murders he allegedly helped orchestrate or carried out during the 1970s and ’80s while he led the Winter Hill Gang, Boston’s ruthless Irish mob.
The racketeering charge included acts of extortion, conspiracy, money laundering and drug dealing.
The jury decided Bulger took part in 11 murders, along with almost all the other crimes and a laundry list of other counts including possession of machine guns.
White-bearded Bulger could receive life in prison when sentenced on November 13th. But given his age, even a modest term could amount to a life sentence.
During the two-month trial, federal prosecutors portrayed him as a cold-blooded, hands-on boss who killed anyone he saw as a threat, as well as innocent people in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Then, according to testimony, he would take a nap while underlings cleaned up.
Bulger was accused of strangling two women with his bare hands, shooting two men in the head after chaining them to chairs and interrogating them for hours, and opening fire on two men as they left a restaurant.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
