Character description

James Joseph "Whitey" Bulger, Jr. (born September 3, 1929) is a former organized crime figure from Boston, Massachusetts. Beginning in 1975, Bulger served as an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation As a result, the Bureau largely ignored his organization in exchange for information about the inner workings of the Italian American Patriarca crime family Beginning in 1997, the New England media exposed criminal actions by federal, state, and local law enforcement officials tied to Bulger. For the FBI especially, this has caused great embarrassment. On December 23, 1994, after being tipped off by his former FBI handler about a pending indictment under the RICO Act, Bulger fled Boston and went into hiding. On June 22, 2011, Bulger was arrested outside an apartment in Santa Monica, California.
