    Is This The Reason Whitey Bulger Got Whacked In Jail?

    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.

    According to TMZ's sources, the circumstances of Bulger's killing were fittingly brutal for the longtime crime boss, who has bragged about killing no fewer than 40 men, though he was convicted of being involved in 11 killings. Sources told TMZ that Bulger was wheeled into a secluded corner of the prison, where three inmates beat him with a lock in a sock, and then tried to gouge his eyes out - a punishment typically reserved for so-called "rats".

    A prison source tells us Bulger -- who is wheelchair bound -- was in general population Tuesday morning. We're told he was approached by 3 other inmates who wheeled him into a corner that could not be seen by surveillance cameras.

    Our source says the inmates beat Bulger -- one used a lock in a sock as a weapon -- until he was unconscious. They also attempted to gouge his eyes out with some type of shiv, but were unsuccessful. Bulger fell to the ground covered in bruises and with several dents in his head.

    As for the eyes, we've been doing some research -- back in the days of Murder Inc., (the 1940s gangsters, not the rappers) mobsters would gouge out the eyes of witnesses who talked to cops.

    According to the Mail, Bulger's death might have something to do with US Rep. Stephen Lynch, who is from Bulger's old neighborhood of Southie, and who recently introduced the Confidential Informant Accountability Act. It's possible, according to the Mail, that Bulger was preparing to open up to a member of Lynch's staff about abuses with the FBI's confidential informant program.

    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.

    In a statement, Bulger's lawyer J.W. Carney Jr blasted the prison system over the mobster's death.

    'He was sentenced to life in prison, but as a result of decisions by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, that sentence has been changed to the death penalty,' the statement read.

    If these rumors prove true, they will leave many observers to ponder the possibility that the federal government was somehow involved in Bulger's death.

    It seems pretty obvious that one or another of his many snooked nosed enemies finally got his revenge.

    Did the Feds play along for their reasons...?

    Could be, but said crooked nosed individuals paying a couple guards to overlook things is more likely.

    Oh well, he lived a surprisingly long time given his profession.

    The biggest sign of government complicity is the sudden transfer.

    Well I don't know anything about that or the reasons for it.

    I would think that most hits occur shortly after a transfer anyway, since, otherwise, the hit would have occurred at the previous prison.

    Inmate dies suddenly after arriving at Hazelton? It was obviously the Russians.

    Agreed. It's how often, where to, ...and why all seems going down as to a schedule.

    Whitey Bulger had been part of an infamous CIA project way back in 1967.

    Many have accused Robert Mueller of protecting mobster Whitey Bulger and helping him to consolidate his criminal empire while an FBI informant.

    Now, as an investigation into FBI conduct is about to begin, 89-yr-old Bulger was suddenly transferred without explanation to a new facility where he was brutally executed upon entry.

    Absolutely. Prior to this secret move of Bulger, it was said he wanted to finally talk. How convenient for Bob Mueller that he got whacked before he could.

    Apparently, we're not the only ones who believe the circumstance surrounding Whitey Bulger's jailhouse slaying are suspect in the extreme. First, that federal authorities would abruptly move an 89-year-old inmate in ill health to a new maximum security prison seemingly on a whim seemed odd. But the fact that Bulger was placed in general population instead of protective custody was either an act of staggering incompetence, or, more likely, an intentional 'oversight'. And now, an ex-con-turned-journalist told the New York Post in an interview that he also believes the killing was a set-up probably planned by federal authorities to get rid of a problem witness.

    As Richard Stratton told the Post, the guards at Hazelton prison almost certainly looked the other way as a trio of inmates purportedly led by New England mafia enforcer Freddy Geas fatally beat Bulger to death in a secluded corner of the prison. His attackers then tried to gouge out his eyes and cut out his tongue - an old-school marking that the victim was a 'rat'. High ranking federal officials probably sent Bulger there "to get rid of him," Stratton said.
    "It just seems impossible to me that this could have happened without awareness, not only at the level of the guards on the tier," writer and producer Richard Stratton said.
    Stratton said the notion that Bulger wasn't in protective custody is baffling considering that two inmates had recently been killed at the prison.
    "He’s going to be exposed in a way where he can easily be killed, and then one day later he’s murdered," Stratton said.
    Stratton, who helped produce an HBO documentary about prison murders, pointed out that Bulger had been transferred from an Arizona facility in 2014 after having an "improper relationship" with a prison psychologist.

    It may indeed turn out that Whitey Bulger was murdered in prison as Mafia retribution for his special “relationship” with the FBI and the fellow mobsters he betrayed. Those things do happen. However, the timing, along with certain circumstances, is especially suspect. Bulger survived on the run for 16 years, and then nearly two years in prison while awaiting trial, and an additional five years in prison since his conviction in 2013 on multiple charges of murder and racketeering. Why was he not murdered during the past seven years, and why was he silenced permanently almost immediately after being transferred to a new prison?
    The wheelchair-bound former mob boss was murdered within hours of being transferred to the Hazelton prison. It appears that his assailants had advance knowledge of his arrival. Since 2014 he had been incarcerated at Coleman II federal prison in Florida. However, before being transferred to the Hazelton facility, he was shuffled briefly through the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma. A number of questions arise:
    • Why was Bulger transferred to Hazelton?
    • Who initiated the transfer order?
    • Why was a high-profile convict with numerous enemies placed in Hazelton’s general population rather than a protective unit?
    • Why was Bulger, nearly 90 and having health issues, transferred to Hazelton, which reportedly has no adequate health facilities for his condition?
    A possible — and plausible — answer to these questions is that very high-level people in the anti-Trump Deep State “resistance” within the administration knew they must not let Bulger reveal any of the dirt he knows on Mueller. It looks like and smells like a setup to rub out a potentially damaging witness. An investigation of the Mueller-FBI-Boston Mafia conspiracy would start a thread unraveling that would also lead to Uranium One, Skolkovo, the Clinton Foundation, and many other criminal actions in Mueller’s career. Mueller’s carefully crafted sterling image would crumble, and with it the Trump-Russia collusion illusion that the Deep State and its media shills have spent enormous resources over the past two years promoting.

    Since the former Boston mafia kingpin was brutally murdered inside his cell less than 48 hours after arriving at a new maximum security prison in West Virginia, Whitey Bulger and the circumstances that left him vulnerable to such a brutal assault have led to suspicions that his murder might have been unofficially sanctioned by the bureau of prisons and - maybe - the FBI itself.

    Bulger, as we noted at the time, was rumored to be cooperating with a new task force created by a Massachusetts Congressman to investigate corruption in the FBI's witness protection program. While the BOP and FBI have so far released few details about the circumstances that led to Bulger's transfer, more information could soon be forthcoming. Because Bulger's former attorney, Hank Brennan, is suing the federal government for wrongful death and negligence to try and learn more about why the frail gangster in failing health was sent to a new prison and mixed in with the general population.
    Mr. Brennan says he is preparing to sue the government on behalf of Bulger’s estate for wrongful death and negligence to find out why authorities sent the frail, notorious gangster to the U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton in West Virginia, and put him in with the general population.
    "It’s important for the family and the public to know why the prisons decided to wheel an 89-year-old man with a history of heart attacks into one of the most dangerous prisons in the country," said Mr. Brennan, who hasn’t publicly disclosed his final conversations with Bulger previously.
    Mr. Brennan represented Bulger starting in 2011, when he was captured after evading arrest for 16 years. He helped defend the gangster at the 2013 trial in which Bulger was found guilty of presiding over a sprawling and lucrative web of murder, extortion, money-laundering and drug-dealing from the 1970s to the mid-1990s.
    Brennan said it's important for the public to learn the truth about Bulger's death. Brennan pointed out several suspicious developments in the days before Bulger's death. For example, during his last conversation with Bulger, the aging gangster said he was being transferred for medical reasons. But the BOP told WSJ that Bulger was being transferred for making threats against prison staff.
    "It’s important for the family and the public to know why the prisons decided to wheel an 89-year-old man with a history of heart attacks into one of the most dangerous prisons in the country," said Mr. Brennan, who hasn’t publicly disclosed his final conversations with Bulger previously.
    [...]
    A Bureau of Prisons spokesperson said that Bulger was transferred from the Florida prison because of a threat he made against a staff member, an allegation Mr. Brennan disputes, and that the transfer to Hazelton was made in accordance with the bureau’s policy. The spokesperson declined to comment on any medical issues or the threat of a lawsuit. The Bureau previously said that it had sent a team of experts to the Hazelton complex “to assess operational activities and correctional security practices and measures to determine any relevant facts that may have contributed to the incident."
    And what's even more suspicious, Bulger's medical classification was changed to indicate that he needed less care - not more - before he was moved to Hazelton Prison in West Virginia, a facility with several violent murders in its recent history.
    Prison records obtained by several media outlets show that Bulger’s medical classification was lowered to indicate that he needed less medical care before he was sent to the prison in West Virginia.
    Whatever the truth behind Bulger's death is, Brennan might soon find out.

    Whitey Bulger - Trump fan and Mueller hater

    Gotta wonder...

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...m_npd_ms_tw_ma
    June 8, 2019, 7:00 AM EDT
    By Rich Schapiro, Kenzi Abou-Sabe and Robert Windrem

    ...In the final months of his life, James "Whitey" Bulger wrote letters from prison offering his thoughts on a range of subjects.

    His faltering health. His longtime girlfriend. His wish for a peaceful death.

    But there was another topic that the notorious Boston crime boss returned to again and again: President Donald Trump.

    In several handwritten letters shared with NBC News, Bulger expressed gushing praise for Trump, offering rave reviews of the president's foreign policy and combative relationship with the media.

    "Trump is tough and fights back instead of bowing down to pressure — and caving in to press!" Bulger wrote in August 2018. "U.S. agrees with him press attacking and his reaction increases his popularity — He has my vote so far."

    "History may show Trump was the man of the hour," Bulger wrote in a different letter earlier that month. "Feel China respects him and hesitant to try to bully him."...
    ...Bulger also railed against former special counsel Robert Mueller. An assistant U.S. attorney in Boston in the 1980s, Mueller went on to lead the FBI at a time when it was grappling with a sensational scandal involving agents protecting mob leaders like Bulger.

    "Sorry to hear Trump is being boxed in by so many," Bulger wrote last August.

    "Trump is experiencing what Mueller and company can orchestrate," Bulger said in a different letter from September. "[Mueller] should observe biblical saying - 'Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.'"

    One month later, Bulger was dead...

    ...No one has been charged in the killing, and federal prison officials have yet to explain why Bulger, an FBI informant, was placed in a general population unit at one of the country's most violent penitentiaries...
    ...the letters also contained many hints of darkness. Across multiple missives, he described the effects of allegedly having been subjected to a secret CIA program, code-named MK Ultra, while locked up in an Atlanta federal prison in the 1950s.

    As part of the government's effort to develop a mind-control weapon, Bulger said he received LSD injections, leaving him with lasting hallucinations and insomnia.

    The CIA confirmed the existence of the program in the 1970s. Inmates at the federal penitentiary where Bulger was held in Georgia filed suit in the 1980s, saying they had been dosed with LSD as part of the program in the 1950s and 1960s. A judge ruled in favor of the government, citing the statute of limitations. A U.S. official familiar with the program noted that CIA records are incomplete but that any participation by Bulger would have been voluntary.

    "Nightmares no control," Bulger wrote. "Have them any and all times I doze or deep sleep — Gift from CIA MK Ultra."...
    ... [Janet] Uhlar said she shared the letters with NBC News in the hope of shining a light on the government's treatment of Bulger...
