He was one of the nation's most wanted fugitives 83 year old James Whitey Bulger.
The alleged former leader of Boston's Irish mafia and also the winter hill -- He was captured back in 2011.
After nearly two decades on the run he's now currently on trial for a long list of crimes including nineteen killings.
Judge Andrew -- -- Fox News senior judicial analyst is with us and I guess there were some.
Fireworks in court yesterday a guy that he hadn't laid eyes on in something like sixteen years Kevin weeks' -- a former enforcer or -- heavy.
For his gang.
Is testifying in court.
And well referred to Bolger and Iraq that brought all kinds of firework.
He had had.
The government contends that sit in the process of proving its case and candidly the evidence of guilt is overwhelming.
But the government contends that this witness yesterday was an enforcer for mr.
-- and literally killed people at mr.
-- is instructions.
And now this guy and this is typical of mob cases is turning evidence in favor of the government and against mr.
Bulger and of course Bulger wasn't happy about it.
So the question as I suppose how -- jurors react.
When the defendant stands up from the defense table and uses four letter barnyard words to describe it witness is just testified against him.
What does that we humans to answer your own question what does the jury think I I think the jury understands.
The animosity between the two and mr.
Bulger does not help himself.
Because he basically doesn't say your -- game.
It's not true war.
He's saying you're not being faithful to me.
So I think the jury fully understands what's going on and mr.
Bulger would be a lot better not to say these things on the other hand I don't think it matters what Bulger says.
Extremely likely to spend the rest of his life in jail and and is judge this federal -- federal judge -- Denise -- ends up jumping to her feet and screaming at both of them.
-- -- here is why she did that.
Because this is a long tedious expensive case.
He could say mr.
Bulger could say some things which would be so disruptive.
That it would be in this trial -- have to start over again she doesn't want to do that.
Shady as as the court and and everybody that works for her and almost everybody in that courtroom on on the side of counsel -- table.
Has worked long and hard thousands of hours to get this case ready and to put it on four -- -- this is.
Apparently his third outburst in the last week or two it's my understanding that his defense team has been talking about the possibility of putting him on the stand.
To try to salvage his reputation.
If this is the kind of behavior he exhibits in the courtroom that doesn't seem like it would be such -- I -- the only thing that would salvage would be his ego.
Because it would give him.
It would give him the last word -- the last word victory we'll have the last word on the -- to -- -- with a time of sentencing but it will it will let him.
The state allowed to what he's been thinking.
But it's not going to affect the outcome of the case this a very very volatile a witness defense counsel would be ill advised to put him on the stand.
He's going to seal his own fate perhaps he knows that he just wants one last opportunity to speak aloud to his sort of formerly adoring public.
And cameras rarely allowed in federal court so we don't have his outburst and modify that.
Never never out I don't think it would be Allard out in no -- well not not in federal court that this would be a great case if we could be watching -- like we -- -- -- wasn't in my case the general wants to watch it right -- can't with -- very colorful language gesture on -- you you're not used to hearing I would I never I never had to perform my life.
Jeff thank you and your pop.
