This iS WORSE, and I mean WORSE than what they did to Bradley Manning, Francis Ford Coppella, and Jimmy Hoffa COMBINED. The Government MUST be held accountable for such an unconstitutional act. The only choice here is clear. We must let him go.

Couldn't they just take a picture of the whole stack of money and give them a list of the serial numbers? The money's existence is the evidence not anything specific about the individual bills.

Because they don't have any of the evidence, and it is simply fabricated to make sure an old man dies in jail.

Seattle officials would like you to stop using the name Whitey.

Are pictures and a list of numbers proof the the money exists?

And also they are having a real hard time with Bulger. Luck thing there are alternatives.

Is this even an issue?  It sounds like they haven't asked to see the money.  Doesn't seem likely that they will.

In which case preemptively saying "no, you can't see it" seems a little hinky.

Wait how does FFC fit into this?

Unless there's a link between the serial numbers and Bolger's former partners in government.  Wouldn't want to embarass anyone important, now would we.

Are you telling me there is NO WAY to let the jury see the money without fear of them stealing it?   Can they see it enclosed in a glass case?  Can the judge be present when they see it?

This sounds like an eminently solvable problem.

puckrock2000: That's OK - the cash is going to go the families of his "alleged" victims.


That what Whitey wants.  Meanwhile the FBI has the money, and it looks like they have very different ideas.  Like keeping it for themselves, for example.

I think the real problem is that if the prosecutor's office gets involved, then they'll get a cut, and the FBI wants to keep it all to themselves.

Can't then bring in one of the 10 dollar bills, and say "Now imagine this times 82,180"?

I find it difficult to believe that where that money goes at the conclusion of the trial is dependent on how they get it in front of the jury for inspection.

And if that really is the issue, that the prosecution wants their cut, well, I suppose my answer would be "fark off, get a conviction without it then"

But I admit I know very little about what I'm discussing here.

Seacrest OUT!

If the money belt don't fit, you must acquit.

Imagine the hilarity if the jury actually acquitted him.  That is, not a single juror hung the jury, but the whole jury.  The FBI would probably claim that double jeopardy doesn't apply in this case, and ask the judge to direct a conviction against him.  Then they would arrest the jury.

Minor threadjack:  Don't know about anyone else in the Boston viewing area, but I seriously want to punch Stevie Davis in the face every time he's on TV, which seems like every possible chance he gets.  Dude is just beyond obnoxious to me.
