Anyone remember this line? It's from a great movie in which an FBI agent infiltrates the mob. Somehow...of all the mafia movies that I love..this is the line that comes to mind today.
Why, you ask?? Well..in case you don't know...today is the day the Whitey Bulger trial gets underway. The defense and prosecutors will begin the processing of selecting a panel of 18 jurors from a pool of 675...so expect this process to take a while.
So..as the wheels of justice begin to turn in this matter I thought it would be interesting to start a thread where we can comment on and share predictions about the trial.
Last night on Twitter I was involved in a little chat about being on the jury. So..I'll start with this question. Would you want to be on the jury?
I don't follow too many trials closely ( after the OJ drama I am somewhat jaded)...but I hope to follow this one as much as possible.
Whitey Bulger has vowed to take the stand. The defense doesn't want this to happen..but anyone want to bet that the prosecutor ( and the FBI) doesn't want this to happen either? No doubt Whitey is an evil man...but I think he's keeping a lot of secrets..and I am betting if he gets on that stand..he is going to sing like a canary.
I think Whitey could reveal the name of more than one rat.
