BOSTON | In letters, Whitey Bulger fondly recalled old days, Alcatraz
BOSTON (AP) — Locked up for life after 16 years on the run, murderous Boston gang boss James “Whitey” Bulger couldn’t stand how much the world around him had changed.
Prison was nothing like his days at Alcatraz, with its “great view” and clear-cut rules, Bulger said. And the former Irish Catholic stronghold of South Boston he once terrorized was now filled with “rich college kids living in expensive condos.”
“World has changed … everything different, even the neighborhood,” Bulger wrote to a friend he met in the lockup in newly public letters.
