A prosecutor called reputed gangster James "Whitey" Bulger "one of the most vicious, violent and calculating criminals ever to walk the streets of Boston" as he urged a jury Monday to convict Bulger of charges that include 19 killings committed during the 1970s and '80s.
"This is not some Robin Hood story about a guy who kept angel dust and heroin out of Southie," prosecutor Fred Wyshak told the jury in closing arguments.
Wyshak said Bulger, as the boss of the Winter Hill Gang, South Boston's Irish mob, was a hands-on killer who committed many of the killings himself and orchestrated others.
