“F-bombs” Fly After Witness Calls Whitey Bulger a Rat

When you put two gangsters in a courtroom, and one is testifying against the other, what do you get sometimes?

“F-bombs.”

On Tuesday, star prosecution witness Kevin Weeks, James, “Whitey” Bulger’s right-hand man, testified against Bulger, saying he watched Bulger kill four men and one woman, according to Richard A. Oppel Jr., a reporter for the New York Times.

During cross examination, Bulger’s attorney J.W. Carney Jr. tried portraying Weeks as a lying, selfish thug, who got a sweet deal from the feds for testifying, the Times reported.

Weeks said: “What did I win? Five people are dead. We killed people that were rats,” the Times reported.  Weeks also said “and I had the two biggest rats right next to me,”  a reference to Bulger and gangster Stephen Flemmi.

Then the Fbombs started flying.

According to a court transcript published by BuzzFeed, Bulger blurted out: “You suck.”

Weeks responded: “Fuck you, okay.”

Bulger: “Fuck you, too.”

The judge intervened to restore order.

A man who was considered to be the surrogate son of James “Whitey” Bulger testified Monday against the accused Boston mobster, describing a cold killer who stopped at nothing to protect himself.

“I was with him for 20 years,” Kevin Weeks, who was a critical witness, told the court during Bulger’s murder and racketeering trial, ABC News reports.

Weeks is accused of helping Bulger murder Brian “Balloonhead” Halloran for going to the FBI with information about Bulger, ABC News reported.
