James "Whitey" Bulger Captured
Authorities used a "ruse" to lure legendary mobster James "Whitey" Bulger out of his hideout -- a home in Santa Monica, California -- and arrest him, the FBI said Thursday. Acting on a tip, members of the fugitive task force staked out the home on Wednesday and then arrested him and his girlfriend, fellow fugitive Catherine Elizabeth Greig, who was inside the home, said FBI special agent Richard Deslauriers.
Neither put up a fight, authorities said. After the arrests, members of the fugitive task force, which included the FBI and police, searched the home.
The end of the 16-year manhunt for one of the nation's most notorious gangsters -- charged with 19 counts of murder and a slew of other crimes -- came within days of the FBI launching a publicity campaign, airing ads about Greig in 14 markets across the country where the couple was known to have ties, authorities said. The arrests were a "direct result" of the media campaign, authorities said.
One of the FBI's Top 10 most wanted fugitives and the inspiration for the 2006 Martin Scorsese film, "The Departed," Bulger -- once head of Boston's Winter Hill Gang -- will make his first court appearance Thursday, the FBI said.RIP Sarah Noll~11-8-87 to 4-17-08

I heard that according to his neighbors, he was a cranky, old fart. I wonder which one of them is getting the $2,000,000 reward?For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
