IAm David Boeri, journalist at WBUR Boston who has covered James "Whitey" Bulger for three decades. Ask Me Anything!
Hi Reddit -
David Boeri here. I'm a senior reporter at WBUR, Boston's NPR news station and I'm spending every day for the next four months at the federal courthouse in Boston, where James "Whitey" Bulger is currently on trial for charges that include 19 counts of murder.
A little about me: I've been doing news for 30 years and I've reported on stories about corruption in politics, in the FBI, in the criminal justice system, and have won various awards for my investigative journalism work.
My team and I just launched a deep, interactive dive into the life, crimes, and trial of Bulger called "Bulger On Trial" and it features evidence I've collected over my thirty years reporting on the mob boss.
Ask me anything!
(By the way, as a journalist I can't reveal any anonymous sources or anything like that)
Edit: Alright everyone, that's it for me. Thank you very much for the questions. This was a great time. The trial is still going on - feel free to follow updates at our Bulger On Trial site. Thanks again!
