South Boston's Most Notorious Resident Found Guilty (Finally)

August 13, 2013


On Monday, James "Whitey" Bulger was found guilty of murder and racketeering, bringing some measure of closure to a decades-long string of crimes at first alleged, now confirmed by a jury. Margery Eagan and Emily Rooney (sitting in for Jim Braude) talked with the Boston Herald's Peter Gelzinis, Massachusetts State Trooper Tom Foley, David Frank from "Mass Lawyers Weekly," and callers about what Monday's verdict meant.

Also on BPR:

  • CNN's John King weighed in on the Bulger verdict, and talked D.C. politics.
  • WUSF reporter Bobbie O'Brien talked about the death of Waltham triple murder suspect Ibragim Todashev.
  • Boston Globe television and music critic Sarah Rodman and WGBH's Edgar B. Herwick III brought their lists of the best new music.
