Boston.com went to Southie to check out resident’s reactions to the arrest of gangster James “Whitey” Bulger (the inspiration for Jack Nicholson‘s character in “The Departed”).
They are… varied.
“Yep, we got Whitey. If they can catch Osama bin Laden, they can catch anybody.”
“Why wouldn’t you want a murderer caught?”
“No reaction, I could care less.”
“He was a mobster but so what? Everybody’s got an occupation.”
