The Depahted Goes to Trial

In the big, booming 1980's, South Boston was ruled by Whitey Bulger. The Boston Police couldn't stop them. The State Police couldn't catch them. And the FBI didn't even try - Bulger was on staff as valued informant. Bulger used the FBI to help him beat up on enemy gangs, and the FBI got high-profile Mafia arrests.

Bulger is still on the lam, but the FBI is being sued by the families of three of Bulger's victims. More power to 'em!
