    Strange tale out of Boston. I spent a lot of time up there 2002-2005 and he was big news back then. Apparently he was tied to eleven murders and played the FBI like a fiddle.I may buy the book,should be a good read.

    He was killed by a Hit man who was in jail for life. They beat him with a sock that had a lock in it and a shiv.
    I read they tried to cut his tongue out because they thought he was a rat.

    What are the chances he'd bump into another Mob hitman in prison for wacking another Boston mobsters? Almost like someone wanted them to rub elbows.

    The mob is alive and well and functioning still.

    Wonder who got the payoff to get him transferred to the facility?

    What I find startling is that he made it to 89.

    No, but it was supposed to be a higher security unit.

    Leading to speculation that staff may have looked the other way.

    Can you explain to me how to ensure the safety and security of every inmate in general population housing?

    The best place to get a hit made on someone is when they are incarcerated.

    You have a captive cliental, and plenty of lifer?s who for a payment made to their family back home will make good on a hit. Not to mention guards who will turn a blind eye.

    Just ask the families of Jeffery Dalmers victims.

    the ONE TRUE case of justice in the system i have seen in many years..he should have been bound and gagged and placed in the public square and offed in some visibly extremely painful way on national TV....there is absolutely NO deterrent or repercussive effects from pleading NOT GUILTY to a a number of blatantly obvious horrible crimes and having the "lawyers" try to make a name for themselves for decades at the expense of the victims and relatives....

    No, but that is not the point, now, is it ?

    I can identify vulnerable, high risk inmates that just might not belong in general population.

    Especially in gen pop with other Mob linked convicts. Most prisons have gang specialist that look at each inmates history, and they typically avoid putting them in the same pod with rival gang members etc...I would think that would have been considered with such a high profile inmate such as Bulger.

    Money talks everywhere. As to the guy(s) who did the deed, they have nothing to lose, life on the Federal side is about what the term says. Think of the "status" those two elevated themselves to in the population.

    The point is you are blaming staff at Hazleton. The staff at Hazleton did not assign Bulger to general population, the transfer paperwork would detail if the inmate was to be on administrative detention, single cell, general population, disciplinary segregation, wheelchair accessible housing, etc. There may be blame on higher ups in the Bureau but not on the staff at Hazleton.
