Whitey Bulger Caught

It's weird, growing up in Dedham and having my grandfather being a Boston cop, you heard stories of Whitey Bulger and him being a huge mob guy in Boston. It almost became a folk tale of him rather than an actual guy. I mean they inspired the movie Departed on the guy.

So hearing that he was caught this morning it was a surreal feeling because the folk tale became a reality. I also never did much research on how bad this guy was too. He murdered a ton of people, knocked their teeth out, cut off their fingers, sold drugs, was the leader of the gang, etc, etc.

To be honest, I was kind of rooting for him. He seemed like such a fictional character that I was hoping one day there would just be reports he died a natural death and that would be the end of it. And for all of you people that say, "but he ruined so many lives and deserves to go to jail." Newsflash, hes 81 years old, in bad health and probably won't make it through the trial.
