Was the Federal Government involved in Whitey Bulger’s murder?


Why was a feeble wheel chair bound 89-year-old Whitey Bulger moved from Florida to a notorious maximum security prison? Segregated since he was convicted, he is immediately put into general population upon his arrival at Hazelton Federal Prison. Murdered within a day. Murdered before he was even processed? This story has a lot more to be troubled by, and it’s not that it was pay back from a fellow gangster for revenge. We will learn that he was wheeled to an area without cameras and brutally murdered. We will learn that he may have been ready to testify and sing, involving possibly high level FBI officials in the informants program.The informants program. Sound vaguely familiar?.

Here we go:

Reports that Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger had been murdered hours after being transferred to a federal maximum security prison in West Virginia shocked the public on Tuesday, and immediately raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his death.

How was the inmate, who was reportedly in ill-health, murdered so quickly after arriving in the new prison? And how was it that guards weren’t monitoring such a high-profile inmate, particularly since it came out in his 2013 trial that he worked with the FBI for years ratting out rival mobsters to help consolidate his power in the Boston underworld?

While the federal government hasn’t released any more details about Bulger’s death, the Daily Mail and TMZ have managed to dig up some information that, if accurate, could indicate a motive for what may have been a killing tacitly sanctioned by senior law enforcement officials. According to the Mail, Bulger, who was confined to a wheelchair at the time of his death, had been talking about outing people in the upper echelons of the FBI’s informant program.

The suspicious circumstances of Bulger’s death would suggest that there’s more to the story than a routine killing. For one, Bulger was seemingly arbitrarily transferred to the Hazelton facility in West Virginia, which had been the site of three other inmate killings over the past year. Sources also said Bulger hadn’t even been processed when he was killed. So, apparently, somebody in the prison population had been tipped off that he was coming. When he arrived, Bulger was mixed in with the general population, leaving him vulnerable.

The Massachusetts Democrat last year introduced the Confidential Informant Accountability Act – which calls for congressional oversight into the selection and use of confidential informants. It’s possible that Bulger was set to open up to someone on Lynch’s team with claims of abuses in the program.

Bulger’s lawyer, for one, blasted the Bureau of Prisons in a statement, accusing it of unilaterally converting Bulger’s life sentence into the death penalty. More at

    This whole thing stinks. I haven’t been able to follow because of a family issue that I’m dealing with this week but I do recall that at the same time hearing of Whitey Bulger’s murder, a story also broke about Mueller and an alleged sexual assault.

    Not paying too much to the latter, I wondered what Mueller’s fate and future looks like if Republicans keep the House and what could be revealed about his connection (and another deep state goon whose name escapes me) to the now deceased, Whitey Bulger. He was a disgusting, vile human being hid by Robert Mueller.

      Sorry to hear of your stress. To tell the truth, I am more worried the what if the Dems take the House…The Trump era is over.. But there is no question that Mueller is a goon who may be going to try an put Trump before a Grand Jury. He is stalling to see what happens with the election.

    I think this whole thing is suspicious. They knew what was going to happen when they moved him and put him in the general population and I also heard he was going to ID somebody. There is no doubt in my mind they wanted him dead and they made sure it happened.

    This is fascinating……might have been mafia people who hit him, that’s the suspicion, but I sure don’t have any reason to believe your hypothesis of gov’t men killing him so he wouldn’t talk isn’t true. Apparently, the news is they tried to cut his tongue out! And he was brutally murdered, not shot or stabbed , no poison darts! BRUTALLY beaten. They sure got to him quickly…that has to be a difficult thing to do……..unless it’s an inside job. Apparently, he was a neighbor of mine for about 15 years…maybe 2 miles away, actually! In Santa Monica. Loathsome person……but this is REALLY suspicious!

    You are absolutely correct to observe that no one commits murder just for grins and giggles. There is always an underlying reason for murder. Neither am I surprised that it was a bungled operation; Inspector Clouseau must be in charge. I seriously doubt as if putting Bolger in general population was a simple mistake. Who made that decision? Why did he or she make that decision? I personally don’t give a damn about Bolger; he was a thoroughly nasty man. What I do care about is a government that deserves the trust and confidence of the American people. Let’s find out what happen here, let’s make sure that everyone knows what happened, and let’s put into prison garb any official who conspired to have this man murdered.

    I do have other questions. How is it possible that prison officials are unable to control their populations? Is there no concern that the inmates are running the institution? It leads us to form two conclusions: first, these government employees are incompetent; second, these government employees are corrupt. We need to choose one of these and take appropriate action.

      Was the Orlando terrorist Mateen an FBI informant? It’s interesting back in 2016 I opined
      “Amazing isn’t it. All of these informants magically become involved in so many of the government cases. Is it on a “need be” case? Was the FBI playing with his head? An informant? Hmm. Follow me as I go down this rabbit hole. Recall the guy who made the video that was blamed on the Benghazi attack? He was an informant before he was a film maker. He went to jail conveniently for a year shortly after the SHTF. He was released a year later and then said he would be disappearing because he feared for his life.”

      I have always had concerns about the so called “informant department.” Someone can do much less time by testifying or claiming to know so and so did it. But an “informant department?” Sounds too close to a KGB department to me. We are only now learning how corrupt a department as the Russian Trump debacle rumbles along. So called “informants” can cause illegal FISA warrants to be issued, and challenge a sitting President. Kudos to Lynch for getting a committee looking at the whole tawdry business.
