Relatives of ‘Whitey’ Bulger Victims Spoke Out Before He Is Sentencing Today

Whitey Bulger

The relatives of James “Whitey” Bulger’s victims spoke out Wednesday during a pre-sentencing hearing for the notorious mobster, the Boston Globe reports.

But no matter what the relatives said, Bulger stood impassively with his back to them.

“You won’t even turn around and look at us?” said Patrick Callahan, shaking his head in disgust after speaking of his father, John B. Callahan, who was shot to death in Florida in 1982 on orders from Bulger. “Coward.”

The Globe wrote that Bulger declined to speak out on his own behalf.

“Mr. Bulger has made clear to us that his position is the same today as it was when he gave a colloquy to Your Honor at the time of his trial, that he believes the trial was a sham,” defense attorney Hank Brennan told the judge.
