The family of late crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger is suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons for failing to protect him from being beaten to death by fellow inmates. The family of notorious mobster James "Whitey" Bulger has filed a lawsuit accusing 30 Federal Bureau of Prisons employees of "intentional or deliberately indifferent" actions leading to his violent death at the hands of another inmate. (CNN) The family of notorious mobster James "Whitey" Bulger has filed a lawsuit accusing 30 Federal Bureau of Prisons employees of "intentional or deliberately indifferent" actions leading to his. Whitey Bulger, byname of James Joseph Bulger, Jr., (born September 3, , Dorchester, Massachusetts, U.S.—died October 30, , U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton, Bruceton Mills, West Virginia), American crime boss who, as head of the Boston -area Winter Hill Gang, was a leading figure in organized crime from the late s to the mids. By Pete Williams, Tom Winter, Rich Schapiro and Andrew Blankstein Notorious Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger was killed Tuesday inside a federal prison in West Virginia — and investigators are.
Bulger made a deal with Connolly: He would tell him everything he knew about the Italian mafia. In fact, he was following an old directive, part of FBI director J.
Still, more than a few people felt uncomfortable with just how closely Connolly and his supervisor John Morris were involved with his criminal friend.
As was later discovered, Connolly and Morris formed a close bond with Bulger and Flemmi. After sending Halloran out into the streets, he called Bulger and let him know one of his men had betrayed him.
He then turned a blind eye when Bulger murdered Halloran in the parking lot of a waterfront bar. But it was only a matter of time before his shady dealings would be brought to light.
Shortly after, Morris suffered a heart attack. Bulger was so fearsome that a simple phone call was seemingly enough to almost kill an FBI agent.
But despite his ruthless persona, Bulger was not untouchable. The DEA was committed to catching him whether or not Connolly was willing to cooperate.
So, John Connolly did the only thing he could at this point: He called Bulger and told him to run. And run he did. During his time on the run, Bulger and his girlfriend visited Alcatraz island and even took a photo of themselves in mock prison outfits.
The aged criminal was living with his long-time girlfriend Catherine Greig, supported by a small fortune in cash and a collection of fake IDs.
Interestingly enough, Whitey Bulger barely cared about being caught. He was an accomplished thief, forger and hired muscle for people that needed it.
For a time, he also ran with a local Boston street gang, the Shamrocks. Small time gangsters and other criminals took note of the younger Bulger, noting his toughness as well as his competence.
After a brief and unremarkable stint in the Air Force. Arrested after a series of armed robberies, Bulger convicted and spent nine years in prison.
After his release from prison, Whitey Bulger again returned to his criminal ways. He became involved with the Killeen brothers, south Boston gangsters who ran loansharking and other rackets.
Shortly after joining their ranks, the Killeens became involved in a brutal gang war with Boston rivals the Mullens.
Later, sensing that the Killeens were losing the war, the ambitious Bulger saw an opening. He approached another mob leader, Howie Winter, and offered to end the costly fighting between the Killeens and Mullens.
Bulger's defense argued that Judge Stearns would not be impartial. Casper is named to replace Judge Stearns.
May 2, - Judge Casper rules that Bulger cannot claim that federal law enforcement officials granted him immunity from prosecution at his upcoming trial.
June 4, - Jury selection begins in Bulger's trial. August 2, - Bulger announces he won't testify because he "didn't get a fair trial" and the trial was "a sham.
August 5, - Closing arguments are presented, and the jury begins deliberations the next day. August 12, - After deliberating more than 32 hours over five days, the jury finds Bulger guilty on 31 of 32 counts , including federal racketeering and conspiracy to commit federal racketeering.
November 14, - Is sentenced to two life terms plus five years. August 14, - Attorneys for Bulger file a formal appeal of his conviction.
James J. Bulger " premieres on CNN. Bulger and Flemmi were originally going to be part of this indictment, but Connolly and Morris were able to persuade prosecutor Jeremiah T.
O'Sullivan to drop the charges against them at the last minute. Bulger and Flemmi were instead named as unindicted co-conspirators.
Bulger and Flemmi then took over the remnants of the Winter Hill Gang and used their status as informants to eliminate competition.
The information they supplied to the FBI in subsequent years was responsible for the imprisonment of several of Bulger's associates whom Bulger viewed as threats; however, the main victim of their relationship with the federal government was the Patriarca family, which was based in Boston's North End and in Federal Hill , Providence , Rhode Island.
Bulger and Flemmi stepped into the ensuing vacuum to take control of organized crime in the Boston area. Weeks, a bouncer at the bar, said, "He wasn't a big guy, maybe five seven and pounds.
Of Arab descent, he had a mustache like Saddam Hussein. That night, as always, he was talking in his obnoxious loud voice. Even when there were people in the bar, you always knew Louie was there.
Litif had been stealing money from his partners in the bookmaking operation and using the money to traffic cocaine , and had not only refused to pay Bulger a cut of his drug profits but committed two murders without Bulger's permission.
Bulger refused to sanction this, but Litif vowed to proceed. Bulger replied, "You've stepped over the line. You're no longer just a bookmaker.
Bulger coldly responded, "We're not friends anymore, Louie. At the time, Weeks was about to get married and, shortly before the wedding, informed Bulger that he was having difficulty finding a seat for Litif at the reception.
And now he wanted to kill a friend of Jimmy. There was no way that would be allowed. Shortly after that, a week or so before my wedding, Louie was found stuffed into a garbage bag in the trunk of his car, which had been dumped in the South End.
He had been stabbed with an ice pick and shot. Strangley enough, Jimmy, told me, 'Louie's last words to me were a lie. It was hard to figure out why Louie lied to Jimmy that night.
If he'd told Jimmy that someone had driven him, he might have gotten a pass. But it wouldn't have lasted long, since Jimmy had no intention of letting Louie run wild.
Connolly kept Bulger and Flemmi closely briefed on what Halloran was saying, specifically his knowledge of their participation, along with their youngest associate James "Gentleman Jim" Mulvey, in the murder of businessman Roger Wheeler.
After arriving at the scene, Weeks staked out the Anthony's Pier 4 restaurant, where Halloran was dining. Michael Donahue, a friend of Halloran's from Dorchester , incidentally ran into him at the restaurant.
In a decision that would prove costly to him, Donahue offered Halloran a ride home. As Donahue and Halloran drove out of the parking lot, Weeks signaled Bulger by stating, "The balloon is in the air" over a walkie-talkie.
Bulger drove up with another man armed with a silenced MAC ; Bulger himself carried a. Bulger and the other gunman, both disguised, opened fire and sprayed Halloran and Donahue's car with bullets.
Donahue was shot in the head and killed instantly. Halloran lived long enough to identify his attacker as James Flynn, a Winter Hill associate, who was later tried and acquitted.
Flynn remained the prime suspect until , when Weeks agreed to cooperate with investigators and identified Bulger as one of the shooters. Flemmi has identified the second shooter as Mulvey, who has denied the allegation and has yet to be charged.
Donahue was survived by his wife and three sons. His family, and Halloran's, eventually filed a civil lawsuit against the U. Both families were awarded several million dollars in damages.
However, the verdict was overturned on appeal due to the late filing of the claims. Throughout the s, Bulger, Flemmi, and Weeks operated rackets throughout eastern Massachusetts including loansharking, bookmaking, truck hijacking, arms trafficking , and extortion.
State and federal agencies were repeatedly stymied in their attempts to build cases against Bulger and his inner circle.
This was caused by several factors. Among them was the trio's fear of wiretaps and policy of never discussing their business over the telephone or in vehicles.
Richard J. Schneiderhan , the crew's only source inside that agency, was valued more highly. During the mids, Bulger began to summon drug dealers from in and around Boston to his headquarters.
Flanked by Weeks and Flemmi, Bulger would inform each dealer that he had been offered a substantial sum in return for that dealer's assassination.
He would then demand a large cash payment as the price of not killing them. Eventually, however, the massive profits of drugs proved irresistible.
Most of South Boston's cocaine and marijuana trafficking was under the control of a crew led by mobster John Shea. According to Weeks, Bulger briefly considered killing Shea, but eventually decided to extort a weekly cut of his profits.
Weeks also said that Bulger enforced strict rules over the dealers who operated on his territory,  : strictly forbidding the use of PCP and selling drugs to children,  : adding that those dealers who refused to play by his rules were violently driven out of his turf.
He quietly served a long prison sentence and refused to admit to having paid protection money to Bulger, Flemmi and Weeks.
He repeatedly got in fights with other inmates who accused Bulger of being "a rat. It would not be until the cooperation of Weeks that Bulger, by then a fugitive, was conclusively linked to the drug trade by investigators.
According to an interview conducted with Globe reporters Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy, Weeks "estimated that Whitey made about thirty million dollars From the start of his involvement with the FBI, Bulger "insisted Bulger also personally donated some of his own weapons.
Before the use of Valhalla , he oversaw a shipment of guns and C-4 in a van at least once. Bulger was annoyed when he learned that the IRA members he supplied had burned the van that contained the weapons.
The final cache included "91 rifles, 8 submachine guns, 13 shotguns, 51 handguns, 11 bullet-proof vests, 70, rounds of ammunition, plus an array of hand grenades and rocket heads.
When Valhalla crew member John McIntyre was arrested "for trying to visit his estranged wife", he confessed his role in the weapons smuggling to the Boston Police.
According to Weeks, when Bulger met with McIntyre in a South Boston house, he hoped to avoid murdering the informant and offered to send him to South America with money and the understanding that he was never to contact his family or friends again.
After interrogating McIntyre over several hours, however, Bulger decided that he did not have the discipline to cut ties with everyone.
He then killed McIntyre and went upstairs to take a nap while Weeks and Flemmi removed the corpse's teeth with a pair of pliers and buried it in the basement.
In the summer of , Bulger and Weeks, along with associates Patrick and Michael Linskey, came into possession of a winning Massachusetts Lottery ticket which had been bought at a store he owned.
Bulger was widely thought to have obtained his share of the jackpot illegitimately. The FBI, by this time considered compromised, was not informed.
After a number of bookmakers agreed to testify to having paid protection money to Bulger, a federal case was built against him under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act RICO.
In and , before the pinches came down, Jimmy and Stevie were traveling on the French and Italian Riviera. The two of them traveled all over Europe, sometimes separating for a while.
Sometimes they took girls, sometimes just the two of them went. They would rent cars and travel all through Europe. It was more preparation than anything, getting ready for another life.
They didn't ask me to go, not that I would have wanted to. Jimmy had prepared for the run for years. He had established a whole other person, Thomas Baxter, with a complete ID and credit cards in that name.
He had even joined associations in Baxter's name, building an entire portfolio for the guy. He had always said you had to be ready to take off on short notice.
And he was. Bulger had also set up safe deposit boxes containing cash, jewelry and passports in locations across North America and Europe, including Florida , Oklahoma , Montreal , Dublin , London , Birmingham and Venice.
In December , he was informed by Connolly that sealed indictments had come from the Department of Justice and that the FBI was set to make arrests during the Christmas season.
In response, Bulger fled Boston on December 23, , accompanied by his common-law wife Theresa Stanley.
On January 5, , Bulger prepared to return to Boston, believing that it had been a false alarm. Boston police detective Michael Flemmi, Stephen's brother, informed Weeks of the arrest.
Weeks immediately passed the information on to Bulger, who altered his plans. Bulger and Stanley spent the next three weeks traveling to New York City , Los Angeles and San Francisco before Stanley decided that she wanted to return to her children.
They traveled to Clearwater, Florida , where Bulger retrieved his "Tom Baxter" identification from a safety deposit box. He then drove to Boston and dropped off Stanley in a parking lot.
Bulger and Greig then went on the run together. In his memoirs, Weeks describes a clandestine meeting with Bulger and Greig in Chicago.
Bulger reminisced fondly about his time hiding out with a family in Louisiana. He told Weeks, who had replaced him as head of the Winter Hill Gang, "If anything comes down, put it on me.
He told Weeks, "Every day out there is another day I beat them. Every good meal is a meal they can't take away from me. In mid-November , Weeks and Bulger met for the last time at the lion statues at the front of the New York Public Library Main Branch and adjourned for dinner at a nearby restaurant.
At the end of our dinner, he seemed more aware of everything around him. His tone was a little more serious, and there wasn't as much joking as usual.
He repeated the phrase he had used before that a rolling stone gathers no moss, which told me that he knew he was going to be on the move again. I got the feeling that he was resigning himself to the fact that he wasn't coming back.
Up until then, I always believed he thought there was a chance he had beat the case. However, at that point, there was something different going on with him.
I didn't fully understand all the aspects of his case. It would be another six months before it became clearer.
Yet at that moment, in that restaurant in New York, I sensed that he had moved to a new place in his mind.
It was over. He'd never return to South Boston. Although by this time he was aware of Bulger's FBI deal, he was determined to remain faithful to the neighborhood code of silence.
However, while awaiting trial in Rhode Island's Wyatt federal prison , Weeks was approached by a fellow inmate, a " made man " in the Patriarca family, who told him, "Kid, what are you doing?
Are you going to take it up the ass for these guys? Remember, you can't rat on a rat. Those guys have been giving up everyone for thirty years.
In the aftermath, Weeks decided to cut a deal with federal prosecutors and revealed where almost every penny and body was buried.
Writing in , Weeks recalled:  : I had known all along, however, that it would not be easy for anyone to capture Jimmy.
If he saw them coming, he would take them with him. He wouldn't hesitate. Even before he went on the run, he would always say, "Let's all go to hell together.
I also knew that Jimmy wouldn't go to trial. He would rather plead out to a life sentence than put his family through the embarrassment of a trial.
If he had a gun on him, he would go out in a blaze of glory rather than spend the rest of his life in jail. But I don't think they'll ever catch him.Weeks said, "I don't understand because he's not the same as I remember Lottoland Geld Auszahlen.
