Multiple life sentences handed down to former Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger

  • 11 murder charges were upheld in the trial of former Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, who was arrested in 2011 after nearly two decades on the run. Bulger was acquitted on seven of the nineteen charges he faced, and the jury couldn’t reach a conclusion on an eighth.
  • two consecutive life sentences (plus five years) will be served by Bulger, who, barring a successful appeal of today’s ruling, is unlikely to ever be free man again. For his part, Bulger maintains that the entire trial is a sham, and refused to cooperate with probation officials responsible for preparing a sentencing report for Judge Denise Casper. source

Openly-gay mayoral candidate slain in Mississippi: Many local residents believed Marco McMillian, 35, to be the first viable openly-gay candidate for public office in the history of Mississippi. As of now, the murder, discovered on Tuesday and reported by police on Wednesday, is not being investigated as a hate crime; however, police do already have one suspect in custody. Though they have not been formally charged, the unidentified suspect was found in McMillian’s wrecked car on Tuesday, with the Clarksdale mayoral candidate nowhere to be seen.

Even if “things are a bit messy” right now, are you really telling us there wasn’t anybody that could have escorted Mr. Hadri to another station? source

hypervocal:

Surely this New York Post cover isn’t as unapologetically appalling as the NYC subway snuff film that graced the cover eight days ago, and this won’t get the same instinctual rebuke that cover did. But what’s up at the Post? When did they become Faces of Death? Go back to sex sells — this is ugly.

The New York Post: You hear about the deaths we were unable to stop, twelve hours after they happen. Seriously, WTF guys?
