James Whitey Bulger -- -- trial is ongoing.
Right now up in Boston -- we'd go we'd stop the defense today.
And a lot of tall got home as to whether Bulger himself.
Will testify I guess the point being that he knows he'll probably knows he's going to jail -- not -- they don't really seriously think they gonna get him.
Also all these charges.
So does he wanna get on the stand and try to settle some schools what way do you think this goes.
Well -- has not been very.
Like in pain during the trial he has -- hope.
That's some of the people the I don't see anyway.
We always -- to the rest of their life in jail he's going to be convicted it's just the -- of the mosque to be in some of the deal that.
But I think you have to be arrested make filled in prison in note that.
But we've made so who didn't -- -- -- decision either way.
There who testified that he was an arrest that he was a lobster but he was in Iraq.
I did bill what what do you think it.
You think he will testify and -- look for the same -- my place my sense is that he will because he realizes that you know you know he's he's facing severe.
Punishment in jail if he's ever put in jail and not kind of speaking from his own mouth saying he wasn't an informant as much as prosecution is kind of painted him in that picture.
Sales were trying to sell some of the scores as well of what other people have said about him.
About other people he may -- -- cast aspersions about.
And if it's him once he gets on the stand it's a great platform for him to kind of now espouse.
Different points of view about various people has that -- may make accusations about other people who may not even -- in the trial we've seen that happen in the past where people like.
You know -- gotten up.
And -- testimony against formal law enforcement officials are all the people out there that creates a real problem for those people even if they're not and not -- -- but upon us.
But part of this bill then you went home about saying is.
It's self preservation.
Perhaps because if he doesn't make certain things clear he's gonna get a pretty Nazi reception yeah.
Totally let -- code in the underworld and in the -- world is is that if you are informative you are -- You the -- -- and that they will send out everything they can to do -- with.
That -- you'll exterminate -- rat and so we want to do was try to preserve himself when he's in jail because they get people in jail.
Is to make sure that he's gonna -- no I was never an informant I never cooperated they may have said that but I didn't help them in any way he.
All he wanted to -- Plus I mean I mean the bill's point exactly.
You know if you look toward the -- the -- he also has some -- that it hurt people like even and what he -- it out figured it would be you know.
Bring back into that you are.
Wouldn't doubt there -- so -- very easily go into these bills regarding some other people not to be arrested just beginning.
You but tell note -- a new view no chance -- all.
That if he's doing anything other than spending the rest of his life in jail.
Oh releases eighties he's going to at least get 2030 years in prison experiment a little federal prison.
He's spending the rest of the years in jail.
He felt data -- -- things apparently wants it but really knows that he never killed any women.
I mean you know whether or not there's really germane I mean he's not -- killing what else so -- -- point is that whatever the results all the of this is that he will spend.
The rest of his natural life in jail and he's he's gonna try to do -- -- -- -- The -- like you know casts aspersions on people but more so.
To keep his life whatever is left of it you know and safe -- in jail.
