I’ve told how I have to reconsider many of my opinions that I’ve developed relying on the media. I also have to do this in relation to the evidence that has been presented by the prosecution. I’ve spoken how the prosecutors join hands with their criminal witnesses and take them on as part of the prosecution team whenever they utilize them as witnesses. To get their evidence, if you’ve been reading my writings, you know they protect them from having to disclose the full truth and give others who may be their friends or relatives a free pass for their crimes even if they involve murder.
One of the most egregious instances is the circumstances surrounding the Kevin Weeks’s story. He has himself and two others, one being Whitey, going to the waterfront to machine gun a guy (Halloran) and he says he does not know the identity of one of the people he is going with. How likely is that? Weeks says the other man keeps his facial features obscure, never speaks to him before or after the murder, and Weeks never speaks to Whitey wondering who this mysterious gunman was even though rather than murdering one man they murder two. It’s like the guy if he exists was standing in another aisle in the grocery store rather than participating in a murder. Truth is, if there is another man, he does know who he is.
The prosecutors let Weeks spout this fantasy. They need Weeks’s testimony. So they let him take an oath and spin a tale which defies belief. The reason for this conspiracy with Weeks to keep the public from knowing the identity of the second gunman is to protect the identity of the second man.
In Weeks’s story, he is the lookout. When he sees Halloran leave a bar room he uses some type of radio communication to tell Whitey and the man in the back seat of the car (who is wearing a ski mask) that Halloran is leaving and they drive up and fire away murdering Halloran and another guy.
I don’t know who was in the back seat. I have speculated that the identity of the man is Patrick Nee based on the following: Nee is still alive so he can still be charged with murder; Nee wrote a book saying he was Whitey’s partner and Whitey would not do such a murder with someone he did not trust; Weeks in his book had nothing but nice things to say about Nee; Nee in his book had nothing but good things to say about Weeks; (the old wink and nod gangster trick) and independent witnesses stated the man in the back seat was bare headed. Others have made the same speculation
Now I’m thinking maybe I am wrong. Maybe there was no lookout. Maybe there was no second car as Weeks testified. Why bring two cars to a murder like this? Maybe Weeks was the gunner in the back seat. He, after all, was the person who Whitey did all his beatings and shooting with. Why in this one situation would Whitey cut him out. If there were a second car and a lookout wouldn’t it have been someone like Nee rather than Weeks?
I offer this for two substantial reasons. First, if I were involved in a lookout for a gangster murder, saw the murder, and then fled the scene, one thing that would be burnt in my memory is the identity of the car I was driving. Does that make sense to you? Why then is Weeks confused over the car he allegedly used to be a lookout? At Connolly’s trial he testified it was his sister’s car; in his book he writes that it was Whitey’s car. Perhaps he was not in any car but the hit car which was called the Tow Truck.
The other reason is that the independent witness to the shooting who saw the person driving the car and the person in the back seat was shown a photograph array of guys the FBI believed may have been involved in the murder. They were Southie guys or those who hung around with them, who were known criminals. Among the photographs shown was one of Nee. Missing from the photographs were the pictures of the two most likely persons involved, Whitey and Weeks. The FBI was protecting Whitey and friends so they were kept out of the photo array. (the old FBI trick so a report could be written saying they were not picked out)
Why then would the prosecutors want to keep Weeks out as one of the shooters? They could never have structured the deal they gave him had they not manufactured the evidence to keep him out of the actual murders and to present him only as a spectator. In the five murders Weeks admitted he never seems to take part in them, he’s always standing around as some sort of spectator watching as Whitey and Stevie Flemmi do their dastardly work. The portrait the prosecutors want to paint of Weeks is he is there but is never an active participant and never knows a murder is going to happen. This doesn’t square if he’s pulling the trigger on the machine gun throwing slugs into Halloran and Donohue.
Remember the prosecutors came up with a list of people from South Boston that Martorano agreed to testify against even though he did not know anything about them. They did that, according to Martorano in his book, so that they would make the deal more palatable to the public. So too would they have had the same mentality when creating Weeks’s testimony.
I’m really upset that I’ve been taken in by the media and these cooperating criminal witnesses. I should know by now that they are all slanting their tales for their own ends. I’ll have to keep examining things with a more critical eye in this case because the scallywags that pass in and out of this story stay away from the truth like a vampire avoids day light.
