No! Whitey Bulger Was Not Caught J--king Off! ... Was He?

According to court documents unearthed by the Boston Globe, a correction's officer spied Bulger masturbating in his cell at 3 a.m. last June at the US Penitentiary Coleman II in Florida
An ignoble man caught in a most ignoble way....

Because he didn't extinguish a simple light, the former Irishman who ran South Boston's Winter Hill Gang while serving double-duty as a high-echelon snitch, 85-year-old James "Whitey" Bulger was caught literally with his pants down.

According to court documents unearthed by the Boston Globe, a correction's officer spied Bulger masturbating in his cell at 3 a.m. last June at the US Penitentiary Coleman II in Florida

Since Federal inmates are prohibited from all sexual activity, Bulger was punished for the wee infraction, reported. He was placed in solitary confinement for 30 days; his commissary and email privileges were stopped for 120 days.

"How the mighty have fallen," Metro Boston reported.

Bulger, never one to admit to anything, certainly didn't go down without a fight. 

At a hearing over the incident, he told a disciplinary officer that a correction's officer had “set (him) up."

"I've never had any charges like that in my whole life," the grizzled gangster said."I'm 85 years old. My sex life is over."

Bulger further claimed that he had developed a yeast infection due to the perspiration caused by his prison-issued pants. Basically, he claimed he'd been applying medication to his genitals. (Another report said that the alleged skin irritation was caused by the humid Florida heat, coupled with the prison's lack of adequate ventilation, an irate Bulger argued.)

“I volunteer to take polygraph test to prove my answer to this charge,” he said, when informed of his punishment.

“I ended up with a condition and I’m embarrassed to go to medical because they have female nurses over there,” Bulger said.

As for why he keeps his lights on all the time, Bulger said it was to ward off the horrible nightmares he suffered from, which were a byproduct of an LSD experiment he participated in while locked up in an Atlanta federal penitentiary for bank robbery.

Scene of the crime....

This guy is old school. Won't admit to nothing! Not even when he's caught "red-handed," so to speak!

Bulger is reportedly appealing the disciplinary action to get the sanction cleared from his record.He also is appealing his conviction on the grounds that he did not get a fair trial.

A male corrections officer making early morning rounds at the federal penitentiary in Sumterville, Fla., caught Bulger in partial flagrante delicto, the papers said. (His pants were down.)

The guard saw him touching his exposed genitals with his left hand, according to the papers obtained by The Globe.

“I got you!” the guard allegedly hollered.

Bulger was written up by prison officials on June 1 for violating a rule that prohibits sexual activity for inmates. 

Bulger No Fan of Black Mass, too
Bulger was apparently not very enamored with Johnny Depp’s portrayal of him in the Hollywood blockbuster Black Mass.

Bulger was stunned how much Depp resembled him in at least one picture
taken on the Black Mass set and this probably isn't it....

Bulger said of the film: It was “pure fiction.” His handwritten thoughts on the film -- rather, photos of the notes -- were for sale by a Los Angeles-based memorabilia dealer, Page Six reported. The photos, 22 in all, were previously in the possession of someone reportedly just "one step removed from the prisoner who was Bulger’s protector in jail." As of Jan. 31, LA-based memorabilia dealer Moments in Time was selling all 22 photos for $24,000.

Depp sent Bulger letters in prison, but the mobster supposedly shredded and tossed them.

“I made a request to meet with Mr. Bulger, and since he was not particularly a great fan of the book . . . and many of the other books written about him, I got a beautiful response through his attorney that said, ‘Mr. Bulger respectfully declines,’ ” Depp said when he was promoting the film last year. 

Bulger, however, apparently was quite stunned when he noticed Depp’s striking resemblance to him in at least one photo from the set.

“Johnny Depp all made up in movie about me. Once I looked just like he does now in the movie. This movie started out way back in ’94 or ’93. I was paying two FBI agents for information about a case involving me. Any info on people quoting info to [the] Office of FBI Organized Crime investigation of me and criminal associates. This went on for years. We got information and they got money.” 

Bulger also kept photosof himself from his decades-ago stint in the now-defunct federal prison at Alcatraz Island.
“My Alcatraz Photo — like classbook pictures! One of American Crime Schools,” he inscribed. 
Depp reportedly made multiple attempts to make contact with Bulger, who allegedly made a habit of ripping the actor's letters to shreds. "Johnny Depp might as well have been playing the Mad Hatter all over again as far as James Bulger is concerned," Bulger's attorney told the Daily Beast last year. "Hollywood greed is behind the rush to portray my client."

Back in 1995, Bulger seemingly dropped off the face of the earth for about 16 years after being tipped off that he was about to be arrested.

He was convicted in 2013 of 11 murders while overseeing a vast criminal empire based in South Boston in the 1970s and 1990s. He never admitted to being an informant though he claimed he had some sort of high-level "gentleman's agreement," with a now-deceased formerly high-ranking law enforcement official.

He was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011 after nearly two decades on the run.

Snitched on High-Ranking Boston Mobsters
Before that he is believed to have done all he could to destroy the Italian Mafia of New England, the once mighty Patriarca crime family.

The highly profitable gambling and loansharking operation run by Patriarca underboss Gennero "Jerry" Angiulo and his brothers was part of the bedrock foundation of the New England mob's vast empire. Based in Boston's North End on the appropriately named Prince Street, the Angiulo brothers ran an empire safely insulated from law enforcement's prying eyes for decades.

Gennero "Jerry" Angiulo

The insulation, however, failed to buffer Angiulo against the Boston Irish mob, aka the Winter Hill Gang then run by Whitey Bulger and Steve Flemmi (though the gang's roots predated Bulger) who made an arrangement to work with the Angiulo brothers. The problem for the brothers was that Whitey and Flemmi had first begun working with the FBI and were high-echelon informants (something that scumbag Bulger no doubt will continue to deny with his dying breath).

The two commenced snitching on the mob via FBI special agent John Connolly (now in prison), who'd hailed from the same South Boston neighborhood as Bulger. Bulger and Flemmi offered a detailed layout of Angiulo’s Prince Street headquarters, so the agents knew exactly where to place the bugs. Angiulo’s chief enforcer, Larry Zannino, also was bugged.

The results, as noted by WBUR's website:

... 98 Prince Street... became a legendary landmark after FBI bugs recorded him and his brothers and lieutenants talking themselves into a banquet of federal racketeering charges in the early 1980s. Sentenced to 45 years in prison, Mr. Angiulo served 24 years before being released in 2007. He died a free man....

The Angiulos were criminals. But the story, now notorious and never too old to be told again, is what happened in Boston when in order to get the Angiulos and their lieutenants and don-wanna-be’s, the FBI and the Justice Department decided to make the ultimateconsonant wise guy, James Whitey Bulger, a Junior G-Man. (Happy birthday to the fugitive killer who got tipped off by an FBI agent and escaped 14 years ago.)

The scandalous record shows that Bulger was protected from prosecution, knowingly allowed to get away with violent crimes and enabled to become the Irish Godfather because he was a secret government informant against the Mafia.
