The Way He Combs His Hair – First Looks At Whitey

IMG_4485I’m waiting to get a look at Whitey since today he had to decide whether to tell his story verbally or leave it to prosperity via written word.

The photograph with this post is what I saw as I was walking in toward the courthouse. The heavens weep. Is it an omen of what is to come?

Usually I would have heard the sirens of the four police vehicles that transport Whitey to the courthouse by that time which announces their arrival, like in the old days when they had people with long bugle-like horns announced the arrival of the royalty to the castle or to the jousting grounds. . but they never came probably because of the rain which has a magical ability to cause massive traffic jams. I checked the traffic conditions coming up from Plymouth, Whitey’s present home. From the so-called Braintree split into Boston the map shows a solid red.

But persistence and stamina and lots of police noises would carry them onward to success in bringing their prison to the courthouse on this day of decision.

Court is now in session. I’m sitting in the overflow media room. I can hear people talking over the television but there is no picture so I’m unable to tell how Whitey is dressed.

Video is back on. Whitey dressed in black with long sleeve shirt. Odds are now that he will not testify.

      Thanks – I had seen it before but you made it easy to find for my second Sunday post.

  1. Matt, et al, regarding the FEDs (REDs I should say) use the “Ongoing Investigation” ruse and hide behind the Separation of Powers, is they want to keep information from We the People; they don’t want to SERVE US, they want to rule and control us. Plus, long-recognized principles of constitutional interpretation, such as due process, fairness, justice, equal treatment, dictate, it seems to me, the FEDs obligation to level with the American people. You can’t use “Ongoing investigation” to impede the timely disclosure of vital information to We the People, especially the citizens of Boston devasted in 2001 and 2013 by Terrorist Attacks and continually devastated by an epidemic of narcotics=poisoning our children, friends and neighbors: 600 overdose narcotic deaths per year in Suffolk County according to DAWN DATA and the FEDs do nothing about it for 40 years and after we invade Afghanistan opium production increases 10 fold. This is not an extreme statement: The FEDs are lying to us and wrongly withholding vital information from us, and I see a large scale Watergate Type Coverup, and violation of Fourth Amendment and other precious constitutional rights on a wholesale basis by the FEDs. En guarde!!!

  2. Watergate hearings took place at that same time a criminal investigation was on going. The executive can’t preclude a separate branch of government from doing it’s job. Completely bogus excuse. 2. There use to be a Court decision that said if several armed police officers appear at ones house and ask for permission to search that the inhabitant is in no position to make a free choice. To waive a Constitutional right one has to do it freely and voluntarily. With a bunch of armed men present you would not be in an environment to freely decide. Consequently anything seized would be a violation of the 4th Amendment and be suppressed.

    1. N:

      1. I’m glad you answered that because that was the anwer I was going to post.

      2. That used to be the law – you may remember back in the old times when you used to have to get warrants from a court – that became troublesome – now if you ask to see a warrant the cop pulls out his six shooter and says “remember Todashev, here it is.” So far no one has refused to give “consent” to the search.

  3. Matt,

    Separate note on the Todashev matter. I met a guy yesterday who works on the House Judiciary Committe. I asked why the FBI is able to refuse to answer questions by Congress due to an “ongoing investigation”. He said it was a separation of powers issue. The FBI is part of the executive branch, and the investigation is presumably destined for a court hearing of some kind. As a Constitutional matter, then, Congress cannot get involved or interfere with an ongoing investigation. It can only get involved after the investigation is concluded and has moved through the courts.

    Does that sound correct?

  4. Have Bulger’s attorneys discovered some procedural error(s) that they can put forward on appeal?

    If Bulger thinks he’ll still have some play, post-conviction, he’ll stay anti-climactically mute at trial.

    I hope not, the objective of high drama is to reach catharsis.

    1. I bumped into one of the jurors in the financial district one afternoon, however, we did NOT discuss the case, sorry whitey, no out for you there!
