Whitey Bulger trial focuses on FBI protection of gangster
“Yes,” Foley replied.
Foley said that beginning in the 1980s, he considered the FBI’s Boston office to be a bigger obstacle to investigating Bulger’s organized crime group, the Winter Hill Gang, than the criminals themselves. Among other things, Foley said he believes FBI agents, supported by some prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, alerted Bulger or his associates to wire taps and tried to have state detectives assigned to other matters.
The law enforcement bad blood has existed at least since the 1970s, when detectives from Connecticut, Florida and Oklahoma began running down leads in Boston that Bulger and his associates killed three men in an effort to seize control of the pari-mutuel company World Jai Alai.
His lawyers have argued that Bulger’s prosecution is in some measure the result of a collaboration between corrupt or incompetent federal authorities and three duplicitous former Bulger associates who have become the chief witnesses against him.
At least a dozen were fully automatic, military-style machine guns. They also found dozens more shotguns, rifles and handguns. Many of the guns were equipped with silencers and their serial numbers had been obliterated, Foley said.
