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”).

“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.”
