‘Whitey’ Bulger Stands to Make a Killing -- Legally

Gangster James "Whitey" Bulger could earn millions by selling anything he has for which there is a market, and there is an awfully awful, yet quite large, market for his desiderata -- be it his life story, hair, nail clippings, autographs or artwork.

The reason: Boston lawmakers, unbelievably, have failed to ban convicted felons from cashing in on their crimes, reports IrishCentral.com. Someone in Boston should wake up and smell the coffee. New York, for one, does have such a law, called "The Son of Sam Law," after the prolific .44 caliber shooter who claimed a handful of lives in the mid-1970s.

And, yes, according to IrishCentral, there is indeed demand for Bulger's hair, nail clippings, autograph and artwork. "... Collectors would pay top dollar for" these items, the article notes.
