That headline is a crime.

All I know is I'm looking forward to the Damon/Affleck movie.

Because like all crimes it hurts? And it hurts because at it's core its true?

Second-degree hyphen abuse, at the very least.

Someone's gotta give that headline a hyphenectomy!! Stat!

Hahaha - professional courtesy!
Good one subby!
I totally get it!

By "professional courtesy" is subby suggesting that the FBI is made up of vicious and violent criminals as well?

That headline bothers me more than anything Whitey Bulger did.

Seems like every serious crime out there is either thwarted after being perpetrated by the FBI, or run under the auspices of the FBI.

Make Damon's character FBI instead of a statie and give Nicholson's character a brother that is speaker of the house of the Mass legislature and it fits better.


"The Town" is also good but has no references to Bulger.

I wonder if the jury is aware of the guy that got poisoned a couple of weeks ago. I, for one, would have to give Whitey a pass on this if I sat in the jury room. His associates are kind of intimidating.

The FBI: like regular cops, only much dirtier and less trustworthy.
 
2013-08-05 01:57:49 PM  
Kill Whitey?

Affleck is planning to direct a Bulger biopic with Damon in the lead. I don't think anything has been finalized yet, but with the cache he got out of the Oscar win, it's hard to believe that Ben won't be able to pull together the pieces for what seems like a pretty natural project for the two of them. Johnny Depp backed out of the Levinson biopic "Black Mass" and DiCaprio has been floated as a possible substitute, but I don't think they're going to get him for the quote that Depp turned down. They might get Wahlberg though.

Was he poisoned? I hadn't seen any follow ups.

/Whitey should watch out. Snitches don't do well in prison.

Damn, was kinda hoping Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery and Billy Connolly would bust in and cap his ass.

I don't think subby is suggesting it as much as implying.

The DA announced that "the guy" - Stephen 'Stippo' Rakes, a potential witness against Whitey - was poisoned by a business partner over soured real estate deals. The business partner is in custody. The DA seems pretty convinced this was entirely unrelated to Whitey Bulger's trial.

Weird. I suppose the partner thought it'd be a handy time to kill him, everyone would think Bulger was invovled.

/too bad L&O is off the air, total "ripped from the headlines" potential.

Well then, STOP LETTING HIM PLAY BASEBALL!

Mods cleaned it up.

yes, he was a vicious thug and murderer without a care for anyone but himself......but I still kinda wished Whitey would have gotten away with it. His scenario was just too crazy for fiction.
