In addition to concerns regarding the health and safety of students, staff and teachers President Rommie Bridge says the union is also concerned about moving too quickly when they may have to quickly move out again. There's a really good chance that whatever we go with one of his hybrid or in person learning at the end of the day, we might end up back in remote instruction. To the day because the cold cases are going to be really great if we spend this time now developing robust model of education that works remotely so that if we end up back, we're not in crisis learning again because we have built a better remote system.

"They aired it in markets all around the country that they could afford that. That they believe why. We might be hiding out in the one market they couldn't advertise in was La because they couldn't afford. But it was such an anomaly for the FBI to create its own ad that it became a news story unto itself so CNN picked it up the BBC picked it up and all of a sudden. There's a woman in Um Iceland who was a former neighbor of Charlie and Carol Gasco their aliases and she leaves three. Messages on the FBI's a voicemail via email and another form saying not only do I know where they are. I know who they are, and that's ultimately what led the FBI divulge her? Did she get the two million? She did get the two million and a great part in the book where Scott Areola, he's an FBI agent out in La a brilliant fugitive under he's on vacation with his kids, and he gets a buzz on on his cell phone, a text saying bulge assiting Santa Monica. Give us a call back. He looks at his phony almost deletes it or says this is somebody I'm on. Vacation was like what the? The Hell I'll I'll see what this is, so they revealed that it's a tipster in Iceland. And Belgium says well who took the tip and it was a US marshal that adjoined the bulge task force that eventually talked to this tipster in Iceland and Gary. All goes well I. Don't really like US marshals. I WanNa talk to her myself, so she gets. He gets on the phone with her in dialogue, and he says how you know. How much do you believe that this is why you your Caffeine Greg that we're looking for? And she goes well. I'm not one hundred percent shore. It's that I'm two hundred percent sure right. She was relentless and she deserves the money, and then they got gary. Gut Department manager the manager of the apartment building to help by telling him that he could get the were award Greg. Fifty grand, the fifty grand for Greg was still available, so he said I'll. I'll do that, so they set up a ruse where they told them the locker, his locker in the garage had been broken into, and they broke the lock and made it look like someone had broken it, and they told billy at Whitey. Asked. Why come on down check it out? Because someone broken, it was locker Whitey was very paranoid and cautious, but he's still went down the elevator by himself, and as he's walking to his locker, they nabbed him. They nab him in for the first time. Bolger actually. Chronicles that event himself in his letter. We have a letter from Whitey Bolger where he describes his own arrest in a second that he got down to to the garage, he knew something was up and he almost You know. He was afraid that the FBI was gonNA take them out at that at that very moment. because. He refused to kneel in a bottle of oil. They sell the oil correct. He said you could shoot me, but I'm not kneeling down in oil. And then. A neighbor stumbles upon this whole scene, and she's been told for years that Charlie gas goes got Alzheimer's. So this Alzheimer's patient surrounded by the FBI and she starts yelling at the FBI so spot, Gary. All the agent is thinking Oh my God. Did we get the wrong guy and Bulge chirps? You know I'm James Leaping. Bolger in! She's Ethin- craze. Don't listen to her. You've got the right guy and not. Why did James Jimmy Bulging Chat? Show some respect and call them Jimmy. Did the apartment manager get the fifty grand for Catherine Greg I don't know. Gary All. He was kind of you know he was. He was spitballing at the time he had to make. This arrest happened I'm not sure this kid got a red cent. How strange was it? Did, it or you did it sitting down with Andrew McCabe while it was, it was it was unusual. You know I. I did the interview with with Andrew, but you know there was a big. This, obviously well, the whole trump thing was going on and I actually met him on the Cape while he was there for an event and we you know we really didn't get into the trump issues. stuffy was dealing with. I wanted to really focus solely on what bulger's arrest meant to the bureau, and obviously it had a rippling effect throughout. The entire euro, but just just because it lifted the stain of corruption at least on the Boston office. It is the most maddening thing in every bolger story I. Read Every Book. Just like when Donahue and Bucky Barrett could taken out. do I. Have that Right Barrett. Barrett was going to flip. He was going to testify. The FBI tells bolger indirectly and they kill him, and it's then that was repeated over and over like anyone. That was even a hint of like Deborah of Deborah Hussy. Would? They were afraid she would talk killer. That's how we handle everything just potential that someone might rat on him. Meanwhile, he's reading on everybody and you're saying. Can you imagine thinking if I go to the FBI I'll be safe ago the FBI tell them you know whatever runaway go in I'll be safe. You go to the FBI and signing your death warrant. It she's not corruption. You think of corruption guys taking payoffs. That's one thing they took. Payoffs God knows from vulgar and Flamy, but setting up people who are trying to do the right thing is the most maddening part of the whole Bolger story in my opinion, oh. That's why you know in my opinion. John Connolly is serving life imprisonment Florida. It's not enough I mean. He should have been given the death penalty for.

"From Whitey in an effort and obvious effort to allow his brother to remain free it I know. That was the one occasion that the FBI. Knew about what they didn't know. About was other instances where Whitey bulger would buy a car for cash and drive from Santa. Monica California all the way to the mid West. To Detroit Michigan to call his brother, and he would speak to bill, and this is. This is what Whitey Bolger had told. Inmate? Best friend while he was imprisoned that they had almost near regular contact with each other Catherine Greg was certainly calling her sister Margaret, mccusker almost on a on a regular interval and from Greg. When he when she left with Whitey she left her two poodles behind, and there's a weird relationship between Catherine and her sister Barbara, because Margaret had the two poodles euthanized. Didn't show bottom. You can imagine what that was like that first conversation they had A. Killing the killing everything for. Whatever dogs but I I? Certainly. Don't make the Bolger. Family seem sympathetic. visiting the prison there visiting there were in the court is brother Jackie and other disgraced former hack. There now or maybe they're not. They had one point sued for two hundred million. because. Why did you get killed in? Prison is still pending. That's still pending hang, Brennan, who was co counsel for Whitey, Bolger in the criminal case. He's representing the family in that case, so we'll see where that goes, but again you imagine the family, the gall of the bulger family to sue the federal, Bureau of Prisons for two hundred million dollars. For Whitey, bulger's murder. If they get it all, that money should go directly to Bulger's victims. It's true I mean you're talking about a guy who killed at least nineteen, probably many many more he he was eighty, nine eighty nine years old, eighty nine. That's way too old way too old I mean if he should have met is is in decades earlier. They're lucky he's lucky. He lasted as long as he did I mean do do the people. People in the FBI you talked to lots of including by the way Andrew McCabe. Yes, about that to they did. They feel silly like they've thought initially was obviously gone before nine eleven could have gone anywhere in the world after that he was in Louisiana. He traveled a lot, but there he wasn't a pretty open place. You know hiding in plain sight in Santa Monica there been a sighting of him in San Diego in a movie theater. Feel like they were they didn't. They missed something in that each state on the Lam for so long. Yeah, I do feel that way I think you know when we cover all the misfires as well and you look at it as a kind of a relay race. You know a few FBI. Agents took the case early. You know made some real grievous mistakes. That allowed Bulger to slip through the news in here. He is living point eight miles from the San Santa Monica, police department Dave and I were the only. Journalists access inside of Bulger's apartment, which was a real weird feeling long gone, but the ghost of Bolger seemed to be still there, but with the st where the gun I mean. We knew we cut the wall and put the Guy Absolutely. Plastered over, but they didn't do a very good job. Remodeling the inside in Bolger. Slept in the in the back bedroom days, Catherine and wine. You never shared a bedroom together because bolger would wake up at night, screaming because of all of these LSD experiments that he had participated in. The. Young woman whose teeth he ripped up because no, no, no, because correct but. It is you know there? There is something to say about turning a criminal into a kind of a super villain you know and I and I do think that the M. K. Ultra program certainly must have played a role in that audience upward two thousand LSD hits without your mind being altered in some crazy way, it just obviously made Bolger. You know the real, a homicide killer that eventually game right I. mean the the life on the Lam. At least in Santa Monica was pretty uneventful. You would say that there wasn't may maybe that's why he remained free. Because do so careful and he didn't do much, and they didn't They were very under the radar. He was very careful. Careful and I think the only time that I think. There was a threat on his life when he was walking with Catherine. Beyond the Santa Monica Pier One night when they were almost. A stuck up for money or a you know a robber with a nice, but bolger was strapped everywhere. He went showed. The Guy has gone in. The Guy ran away and Bolger I love the fact that he's a huge fan of Hollywood, so he recites these great wines from gangs. and. Bulger allegedly said to this guy. You never bring a knife to a gunfight. You can hear Sean Connery saying that same line in the touchable. Bolger didn't have A. An original thought in his head, the the story of how they got him. Obviously you go into it extensively in very good detail, but. Basically comes to this. The FBI took out a TV commercial. Would you say that led to the yeah well I mean what happened. WAS THEY I love the fact that Bulger was an you know. He had hatred toward women treated. You know Catherine like Dart and killed at least two women that we know of so here comes a female FBI. Agent named Noreen gleason and she's looking around the Boston FBI, agent seeing people kind of down in the. The dumps and they've lost their wilted to go on, and she says we're not going to get done with this crew. I need to bring in some heavy hitters fugitive hunters from around the country and we've been looking for the wrong person. We've been looking for ten years for Whitey Bulger. We need to start looking for Catherine Greg and if we signed her. We're going to find him so, but they had those old grainy surveillance photographs of Catherine Greg. The. Tipster let them know that Katherine. Greg head numerous cosmetic surgeries, boob job, Rhino Plastic. You name it. She had it so then. They started to really canvas all of these. Plastic surgery operations around the Boston area and finally found. Her surgical practice and that practice had these full close up photographs of Catherine Grey, so they created their own public service announcement for the very first time in the FBI history that they done this and they wanted the American public. Do believe that Catherine was in fear for her life. You know on the run with this chiller women, so they put together a commercial they..

"Your way out. Today's big is New Bedford stories. His. Bulger's gone, but his girlfriend lives on a Catherine Greg. She's sixty eight now. She's been in prison since he was at prison since he was captured in two thousand eleven and she's doing like an eight year bet for, for harboring a fugitive, then also for refusing testified before a grand jury that's trying to investigate where why these gains are supposedly tens of millions of dollars are she's always claimed. She doesn't know refuse to talk. So she's been in prison in Minnesota. But, you know, it's summer's almost here officially unofficially already here, but days are long, the weather's getting warmer. The sun is actually out a few hours every day, at least what better place to be that Cape Cod. So catherine. Greg, Whitey Bulger's mall has been transferred by the bureau of presents from her dank dark female prison in Minnesota to a halfway house on Cape Cod. Isn't that nice who pulled that string? I don't someone someone say got some cloud even now they said, why was murdered by the B O P? They, they certainly did a favor for his gal pal though. Didn't they going to the Cape for the summer? She's not eligible for parole until September of next year, twenty twenty twenty but in the meantime, she's going to be living in a halfway house in an afterwards. She's going to go, I guess, live with her twin sister and Quincy and. So my question is John Callahan. With, oh, he was he was the one of the last one of he was one of the last people they killed they were frady was going to testify against the federal probe of another murder, so they killed them and the Johnny Toronto, Joba, Donald kill them and at the behest of Whitey and Stevie Fleming, and his widow said, are they going to follow her around? I mean that's the obvious question when she gets out. I mean, you gotta follow her around how much money did he stash the only money they found him with that eight hundred eighty two thousand that he had in the in the wall. The wall high does they call it. He just chopped up a wall inside their apartment at Santa Monica, and they never have found all the other money that he had supposedly stole tens of millions extorted money are made it in the cocaine trade marijuana little bit. But it's more cocaine extortion all kinds of stuff that he all kinds of rackets protection. Money. He he had millions millions and they never found any of it. So where where is that money? I hope I hope they follow her around the try to try to find it when she gets out. Eight four four five hundred forty two forty two other store. I just wanted to mention before we go back to the phone lines. Did you see that the Salva Macy? They former house speaker, the third house speaker in a row that was convicted of committing federal felonies. In this his case, extortion bribery conspiracy mail fraud, wire fraud, etc. Etc. He was shaken down software dealers were doing business with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. And twenty sixteen. He was doing a eight year stretch in federal prison. He was in butner North Carolina. Federal mill medical hospital home to such worthies as birdie made off of ex congressman Jesse Jackson junior. And so, Sal was there. They said, oh, you gotta let Sal out sales die of cancer. He can't even swallow solid foods. He's got cancer of the Asaf against cancer of the lung cancer of the lay ranks. Well, here it is. It's, it's more than two and a half years later and sales dead cells been let go and he's living in Melrose Massachusetts. Which is not a bad place to live compared the butner North Carolina in the prison with Jesse Jackson junior and Bernie Madoff. And guess what? He wants to become a lobbyist. He wants to become a little egg wants to be sanctioned registered by the secretary of state in massachu-. -chusetts so that he can lobby the people that he used to be shaken. Dow, isn't that? Nice. It's amazing. The, the secretary of state is trying to stop him. But, you know, it's unclear because he was convicted of federal felonies and his lawyers are making the point that nobody ever gets prosecuted in Massachusetts for extortion or corruption, which is certainly true. But whose fault is that? So I checked check some of the other legislators I see I begin to see Niwa. Now why he's so jealous why he wants to become a lobbyist, you know, people that go up and wine and dine, and give contributions to state legislators in return for favors Bob travel. Eighty remember him? He was the president of the state Senate. He Eddie was from east Boston, like piece from Boston that the same even the same part of Boston. The south hours from the north end Sal was in the legislature elected in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight at the time trav- was just a precinct. Captain, for white for white for Kevin white in east Boston. Now travel goes on to become the president of the Senate, and you don't have much trap made last year as a lobbyist he lives in Winthrop now not east Boston five hundred forty four thousand dollars five hundred and forty four thousand dollars. This guy was a code hold. Their went south of Macy was a was a legislator. Salads, envious? He's jealous. Mike Klis, Stella from Essex county's. Father was a state Senator dick Costello. Former cop I believe, but by Costello was just a state rep you know how much he made his lobbyists last year. Four hundred forty one thousand bucks. Four hundred forty one thousand bucks Steve, Steve door from the valley make two hundred thousand last year. Carlow Carlow, basil the, another state rep from east Boston, just he was the patronage secretary for Paul divall. He just started out in the business. He made one hundred grand last year.

Also a convicted felon income tax evasion. Good time, Charlie flared. He's over eighty years old, he made ninety grand is a lobbyist eight four four five hundred forty two forty two.

"More of nightside with WBZ's. Dan, Rae OG, folks. This radio. Can you hear me? Hour number two. Rainy Friday night on my guest is Janet Euler. Janet was one of the twelve jurors who convicted Whitey Bulger for eleven murders in federal court that ended up him being sentenced to life in prison. And eventually his death on October thirtieth. He was murdered in a West Virginia. Prison Janet before we get back to the calls. Very quickly. What was your reaction when you heard of the way in which Whitey Bolger died? I was shocked. I was shocked and the realization hit me that would John Mars attempted to do with the help of Boston Globe. Reporters twenty three years ago. He finally accomplished on October thirtieth. You're not accusing John Morris have killing Whitey BELTRAN. Actual though, I am saying that John Morris has blood on his hands. The Boston Globe per trenching that article on Mars was the article true or untrue. The article was John LARs claim that Whitey Bolger wasn't FBI informant in the Boston Globe, just accepted it. First of all, it was unethical for Mars to even say that as an FBI agent, and it was unethical for the Boston Globe to report that knowing that it was on that gopher John Mars to say it. I don't think I don't think the Boston Globe should be held to the ethical standards of the FBI. I mean, assuming that you did your accurate in that. Now, it was true. Did they did they even check it out? Did they take time to even ask any questions? My understanding is they printed it right away. And that was the reason Mars did it is because the wall was closing down on him. They found out about his corruption. Wasn't he risk-taking money? Purpose. According to even judge who had modest him and the reporters from the Boston Globe was that he intended to have Bolger murdered by the mafia for saying that she was an FBI informant and the Boston Globe went right along with that. Which? Judge journalism which judge at my coach check that out. I'm not sure which judge it was. But there was an admonishment admonition. Okay. No. Let me ask you this willing reporters from the globe. Was it was it was what he Belgian FBI informant Whitey Bolger claimed he never was he was shocked by the FBI informant. File. In fact, the strange thing is his last letter that I received for him from him. He had a lot of information about that. And about how much money he paid to John Morrison. John Connolly for information, and what kind of information they gave him and what kind of items they gave him in return purchase pay to them. What did they give him in return? One of the things they gave him. He said it was a Christmas gift wooden box. It weighed about sixty five pounds. Let me sign the exact quote. It was plastic. Plastic explosives with a silent igniter when it had a big, Dan. Did he use those plastic explosives? I you never told me if did probably maybe or maybe he gave them to somebody else. He says in this letter that she gave between the two of them about nine hundred thousand dollars one of the things John Conway did was to take forty thousand dollars in cash and by speed. So his story to you was that he was not an FBI informant, and he was paying off the FBI. So they would protect him. Now, not to protect him to get information. They would tell him when anything was coming in. And we get to him or his gang. That's how he would be protected. Well, yeah. But not direct protection that you're not be standing century. We're not you're not suggesting that. You do know that he shipped weapons to the IRA, right? Yes. He did. Yeah. Okay. And those weapons were shipped those weapons would end those those weapons I'm assuming would have been used to have killed people. I that's too. I don't. So therefore, the there may have been other debts that he was responsible for above and beyond those for which he was here. Here in Boston. Did he ever say that or did he ever admit to? He did not talk about the dealings at the bell. Hello. Okay. Let's get back to the phones. Now, let me issue an admonition to my callers. Look you can disagree with Janet ULA. She's here because she has a perspective firsthand perspective that I don't have that. You don't have feel free to ask whatever questions you want. You can be critical. But I expect you to be polite. Let me go next this hour. Start off this hour with a couple of guys were tough on you. Let's go to Noel in Methuen. Noel in Methuen. How are you tonight? You're next on the ringcentral nightside caller line with Dan Rae and Janet Euler go right ahead. Hi, janet. Mister Bolger ever talk about one Howie Carr and to how he felt about his girlfriend having to go to prison. He s he talked about both of those things as far as how we cargoes. He had no love we nor how we for him in the trial itself. When John Martorana was testifying John Martorana told the jury that how we wrote at least a book with John Mara, no hit me on in partnership with John Martorana. John Martorana got half of the royalties from that book, but the public didn't know that that anybody who purchased that book was actually supporting John Martorana. And and and we have to, you know, this is if people can put aside what they think they know about Jim Bolger. Repechages dejected for for second in defensive highly car. I don't assume that John Martorana. If I bought that book, I don't assume that John Martorana would have given away his story. For a contribution to the little sisters of the poor is getting half the royalties. So exactly yeah. Getting paid for that book. Second partnership, if he's getting a little tease, Dan, but we have to, you know, step back from and consider this anything the public knows about Jim Bolger came initially from John Morris who was trying to have Bolger assassinated by the mafia before everything came falling down on John Morris. It came from John mater rhino Steve slimy Kevin weeks, it was their stories to assistant US attorneys, namely, Fred, why shack Baghad out and we're printing by Boston Globe. Reporters by Boston Herald reporters by WVU, our reporters as fact, let me defend all of those reporters because if I had information from what I consider to be reliable sources, I would have gone and told those stories that's what reporters and and. We should emphasize. Let me finish if I could. And then I'll let you go Janet not let you all respond all of those individuals who provided information about James Whitey Bulger. We're his business partners either his formal or as informal business partners. These were the people who he did business with who he trusted and who theoretically trusted him. What did he mean? They were telling the truth. Well, I could just say this. They certainly had standing to present themselves to legitimate reporters into many legitimate reporters who cover this story who I know who were legitimate reporters. And they these people are in the position to know. What are they supposed to do as a reporter? I'm defending the reporters here. This is a story people wanted to destroy that was hidden for years. What he bows you the legend of Whitey buzzer. Was that of Robin Hood? He was he was the good bad guy. He was the guy who was keeping keeping drugs out of south Boston and all of that. And that story, frankly. Was not true. Well, it's because of these guys said, otherwise, and yeah, he was a criminal. But the bottom line is this. These guys got outrageous deals for these stories. These guys they're combined criminality their combined body count is more than one hundred souls, how in the scales of Justice in the federal court system to their crimes way less than that of Whitey Bolger. Why are all of them free to enjoy life? And at least two of them, we're giving ridiculous amounts of money. John was given at least three million dollars in tainted assets back. They walk around the streets. None of their victims have been vindicated within the court system. But Whitey Bolger was the focus. You've gotta stop and ask you. Was the kingpin at the group. They. Why did you take orders from on Toronto D'amoto take orders from Whitey, Dan when they laid that out in the court in their charts, and then everything not around no flinty and Whitey were on an equal footing. They were all the heads of this group. Now, we've brought fear stories hook line, and sinker. And all of those reporters that you're descending. Why do you spend in prison for five years up until a couple of weeks ago? None of them interviewed him. None of them car. Sponsored with him. None of those journalists went to the source to ask him about. What was being said the first of all? Journalism. First of all a lot of the stories were written while he was on the Lam. And they were written as fat. And they were witness facts. There was no opportunity for them to interview Whitey to corroborate those facts while he was on the Lam if he had wanted to write them as fat. How can you write something? As fact when you can't go to the source. If you have if you if you have well, though, if you have I I don't wanna go word by word. I don't want to parse every every report that was in the globe herald wherever, but if you have information that you believe to be credible in particularly that information is corroborated by second source. You can write it as fact or you, can you could write it in a way that might appear to be fact, but you could say sources, tell me sources close the bulge, you tell me this or tell me that let me do this. No L, we're taking some of your time. Do you have another comment or question for Janet? She. Ever mentioned in girlfriend, Catherine having to go to ESPN Noel, he mentioned her all the time. He's very concerned about her. In fact, what was kept from the jury also is that when Bulger was arrested by the FBI in California. He told the FBI that he wanted to plead guilty to all charges and accept an expedited death sentence and all he wanted in return for that was leniency for Catherine Greg because she had no priors and her crime was just that she was with him had she been his his wife had she been his sister his daughter. She wouldn't have been charged in the trial. It came out that the probation department recommended two years in prison for Catherine that was leniency, but the United States the US attorney's office in Boston. Rejected that and they wanted Catherine to serve for eight years the first year being in solitary confinement, and they have since added three years to Catherine sentenced, Catherine Greg will serve as much time in prison. Because she just happened to love vulture and be with them as John mater rhino did for twenty cold blooded murders, including two teenagers who were in the wrong place at the wrong time because he doesn't. Greg. Greg also harbored a criminal and cat without Catherine. Greg wate boats. You probably could not have survived out there for as long as he did think of the agency was his wife, if she was his daughter if she was his sister that wouldn't happen. About that. I'm not so sure about that legally, maybe. You're not sure Dan on the same note in testimony in his trial. John Mada runner's girlfriend testified that she harbored Sean mater Ronald for the exact same amount of time..

"Crime boss James Whitey Bolger is dead one day after being transferred to a federal prison in West Virginia. His death is being investigated as a homicide several news organizations, including the Boston Globe reported. He was murdered in prison today by inmates associated with the mob. Bolger who for years was one of America's most wanted criminals ran gambling and drug rackets across Boston for decades. He was an FBI informant as well Bolger was on the run for sixteen years before he was eventually caught and convicted in two thousand thirteen of participating in eleven murders in the nineteen seventies and eighties, Emily, Rooney of public station. W GBH in Boston as long cover Bolger and his crimes and she joins me now, Emily Rooney. Thank you for talking with us. What is known about how he died while he was only in the new prison. It'd come up from Florida to West Virginia less. Than twenty four hours. He was still in his wheelchair. I have heard some reports that he was surrounded by a mob of gang of people who viciously beat him. I can't corroborate that. But that's what I've heard which says something about the that federal prison. He had more than that. So they say that they transferred him there for a different reason. And there was somebody there waiting for him. We we really don't know a lot of a lot of questions. He started on this criminal path from a very early age. Tell us about his career he was a criminal at age thirteen. And now he was robbing convenience stores. He dropped out of school at the age of fourteen. He ran a criminal enterprise for decades and decades, he had this charm in this sort of appeal that he he he lured people into his his his net, including women he often had two or three women going at a time. It took that one on the road with Anthony tried to take. The other one with him I and she gave up and came home. And then he took Catherine Greg on the road for them. He was he was an FBI informant over what period of his life and how did that develop well in nineteen seventy five became an informant. What had happened was the the DA the Federal Bureau investigations wanted to bring down like CASA Nostra the Italian mafia in order to do. So they enlisted the help of the winter hill gang, which was won by Whitey Bolger and all of his associates, they figured Bill tourney blind. I two rackets and numbers and some of that, you know, busting machines and that kind of stuff, but they also turned a blind eye to nineteen murders. And then in one thousand nine hundred five FBI agent. John Conway who grew up in the same housing project is Whitey Bolger. And was in the FBI tipped him off that he was about to be indicted. But you know, John Conley has always contended to this day. Hey, he was one of the guys he was part of the team. And he feels like he took the fall for something that happened at a much. Much higher level at the FBI you mentioned murders. I mean, he killed people with his own hands. Oh, yes. And then you took naps afterwards killed at least two women, Deborah hussy and Deborah Davis. He was only convicted of one of those murders. But then he would pull their teeth out and bury the remains. So that they couldn't be as easily identified. We didn't have DNA testing back then but the story of his life. I mean, it's been made into movies documentaries about him. He he'll be remembered for all of this. And the woman who was with him at the end, she still serving time, Catherine. Greg is still serving time. She was sentenced to a fairly minimum number of years like seven or eight, but she refused to cooperate with some detail about I don't know other informants or where money was hidden something like that. I can't remember the details of that. And she accepted more time in prison as a result. So she's still I believe she's in a federal prison somewhere locally, I believe. But but what a legacy he has. Can you imagine the Andy I should say, by the way? None of the victims in the greater Boston area. Or lamenting this at all they're cheering. They're popping champagne tonight. But this is not the way his life should have ended. And the federal government is got some explaining to do Emily Rooney with WG be h we thank you. Now should colleges be accountable for the graduation rates of their students.

"James Whitey Bolger was killed in a West Virginia prison a day after he was transferred there. Now, it has the California connection because this Boston mobster was caught in Santa Monica in two thousand eleven trial was convicted for numerous murders and ended up being sentenced for the rest of his life. Eight lived in Santa Monica for years years walked around out in the open wasn't trying to disguise himself wasn't trying to hide it. Just looked like an old man shuffling around the the promenade there eighty nine years old and the headline in the Daily Mail this afternoon revealed murdered wheelchair-bound mob boss, Whitey Bolger. Eighty nine was wheeled away from security cameras by three inmates with mafia ties before they beat him to death with a lock in a sock and tried to gadgets is out. Well. Murderer. It's vicious. He killed at least eleven people. Yeah. He personally killed some of the writing just ordered them killed. Yes. He was convicted of killing at least eleven people serving two life sentences at the time of his death. And of course, he ended up being an FBI informant. Maybe as far back as nineteen seventy five. I mean, this guy's old. It was a mobster for decades before an all caught up with him. And he went on the run ended up in Santa Monica. They think other other mobsters did him in. Oh, wow. That's like right out of the movie stock and gouging out. The is that's a mobster killing. Yeah. I mean that somehow they got access to them in wheeled him away. From the surveillance cameras worked him over. I bet you the guards got paid off. Oh, you think. Take somebody got an ice bucket full of cash there had to go to the bathroom. I'll be right back. So you even other news outlets reporting that a fellow inmate with mafia ties is under investigation in the slaying. And this is a prison in in West Virginia. And supposedly has a lot of problems already with security. Now, there's a former FBI agent I'd forgotten this John Connolly junior who use Bolger as an informant. He was convicted of racketeering in two thousand and two for protecting boulder investigations and served a ten year prison sentence. Ooh. Did you see it? Tried to gadgets is out with a Shiv. Yeah. It was a picture. Oh, there's no there's no picture. The gaps doubt. Is they would pay a lot for that picture. Yeah. Yeah. They ship is like a little prison made knife. Yeah. Sort of strike J down you kind of shave it down and make a sharp or shoved it in his eyeballs. Oh, that's it. Reports that he was still acting as an informant that that maybe that's why they said, well, we get a chance we gotta kill him because he's still telling stories. Yeah. That'll get your ship in the eyeballs if you're still rat other mobsters. God shut up. Stay quiet. Well, he's he's psycho. I mean, he was crazy cycle. He was he got transferred because he was threatening staff member at the last prison he present. I also Florida he may have been transferred and transferred a couple of times because he was getting too close to his prison psychologist woman, and they had some questions about their relationship. Nine. Left in them, by the way, he had a girlfriend Catherine Greg who got eight years in federal president twenty twelve for density fraud and helping him avoid capture. Yeah, he used to walk around with her over Santa Monica. Yeah. They were just this little old couple. They Charlie and Carol Glasgow in Santa Monica or Gasco was there named GS KO. Yeah. By the way. Yeah. Bolger said that was a sixteen year honeymoon with her living in Santa Monica. That's how long they got away with it. And do you know, you probably don't remember this. But his brother William is was actually president of the Massachusetts Senate and headed to the university of Massachusetts. But he had to resign in three because he admitted to a congressional committee. He had spoken to Whitey Whitey was on the run, although he denied specifically where he was or any criminal activity. I did talk to him. Was on the run. And of course, Bolger is always denied being an informant even as he insisted he had an immunity deal with the former head of the Justice Department's organized crime strike task force in New England. I guess nobody believed that the brother knew nothing. Yeah. No. I think so you get you get bounced out because you pick up the phone, and he was portrayed in movies. It's right to departed Jack Nicholson played them, and then Johnny Depp. And black mass was just came out a few years ago twenty-fifty he's he was so violent so psychotic. But those guys have a charisma about them, they they're fascinating to people. Oh, yeah. No. I know I know that's probably made some friends in these presents. Although it looks like this was a hit, and they were just waiting to get to the right place, which because he had just been transferred to this prison in West Virginia. See the reason he got away with a lot of murders. Is he was an FBI informant. Going back to nineteen seventy five say he was he was an informant for over forty years. And so he had this deal with the FBI and that allowed him to kill. I guess other mobsters they weren't going to do anything about it. Because he was giving them so much. Rich information. Yeah. Yeah. He was sixteen years on the run before they nabbed him in June of twenty eleven should they knew he was in Santa Monica. The whole time. You think so? Yeah. And then then maybe a new boss came man and got wind of it and said, what are we doing here? He's sixteen years. A guy like him living out in the open when he was deemed most notorious gangster in in the Boston area. I just find it hard to believe that the F B I really new idea wasn't disguising himself in any way, that's hard to believe any and he was still involved. Melon all caught up with them this morning. Yeah. Something called Hazelton in West Virginia penitentiary Hazelton, which I read also there have been some other murders there, and it's apparently considered to be one of the roughest federal prisons in the system, and there's real there's guards at work there. They claim it's just not maintained that well lock in a sock to the head ship in the eye. Yeah. That's it. Sending a message there. Don't you tell when we come back? It's also big news today. President Trump goes on an HBO show beats me, and he's talking about signing an executive order to end birthright citizenship, we'll play some of the audio and talk about it. After the news.
