Time To Place Your Bets

(1) DURING WYSHAK’S CLOSING STATEMENT TOMORROW, HE WILL PRETEND TO CHOKE UP AND CRY A MINIMUM OF 2 TIMES

(2) WYSHAK WILL THEN ‘REGAIN HIS COMPOSURE’ ENOUGH TO MAKE A MINIMUM OF 3 TALKING OBJECTIONS DURING THE DEFENSE’S CLOSING ARGUMENT.

(3) WYSHAK WILL ALSO MENTION WILLIAM BULGER A MINIMUM OF 3 TIMES.

DOES ANYBODY WANT TO BET THAT THESE PREDICTIONS WILL COME TRUE?

If anyone is interested in responding to Patty’s challenge then you can do it in the comments.

Here are my responses: to #1, 0; to #2, 6; to #3, 9

1, I’m not sure Wyshak will pretend to choke up and cry. I think he’ll just go on and on like the Little Engine That Could.  So to number one I say he won’t do it at all.

2. I have to believe that Patty underestimates the times Wyshak will make speaking objections during the closing argument, I say it will be 6.

3. As for mentioning Billy Bulger – or William Bulger – I’d place that at 9 times. We’ll hear how his house was located next to Flemmi’s mother’s, and at some point one of the extortion victims did work on his house and the weapons were stored next to his house.  Wyshak’s closing will be interrupted by his fellow prosecutor Kelly who will stand up during the time Wyshak forgets Whitey is the defendant and thinks it is John Connolly and say: “And who was it that gave a speech at John Connolly’s retirement party.”

So if you are interested register you opinions.  Your correspondent will be ready to tally these numbers and will produce them faithfully, if he can stay awake. If he dozes off, all bets are off.

    1. Honest:

      Almost right – the 137 was a little low. Go to the prize stand and turn in you choices and you can collect your reward.

  1. #1 – 0

    #2 – 6

    #3 – 10, but one in which he says “…a man called ‘a corrupt midget’ by many knowledgeable people in the community.”

    1. Henry:

      I’ll have to go back and see if he used the term “corrupt midget” but I tend to doubt it. You know where you can collect your prize.

  2. All I can say is right word, wrong spelling, Shelley Murphy: “@shelleymurph
    Wyshak says it’s “humerous” that defense claims #Bulger was thrown in and others committed all the crimes”

      1. Dear Matt,

        Your grammar is impeccable. As the leading news outlet in New England, The Globe’s important role in influencing its Readers should not extend to confusing an arm bone with comedic expressions. Time and time again, you produce cutting edge content with cutting edge grammar. Thank you for setting the standard and raising the bar where others have dropped the ball.

        Sincerely,
        Jay

    1. Speaking of the reality TV series Saint Hoods, several of the scenes were filmed at Kevin Weeks’s house at 17 Ticknor Street South Boston, MA. For those of you who haven’t heard of the show “Saint Hoods”, it is a reality TV series on the Discovery Channel. The film crews follow bookmaking operations in South Boston, Dorchester, and Roslindale. Pat Nee is depicted as the Boss of all organized crime in Boston and all bookmakers pay him “rent”.
      You can enter Weeks’s address in Google Maps Street View and clearly recognize that Weeks’s house is the setting where bets were being placed with a bookie on the back porch. The bookie demonstrate how he writes bets on water soluble paper so if the police come he can dissolve the betting slips. Another scene filmed there purports to show Pat Nee’s enforcer, Jimmy “The Baby Faced Assassin” Glynn making a collection from a bettor.
      The show is just absurd, but it is offensive that Weeks and Nee are profiting from their murders so grossly and openly. The Donahue and Halloran families must be incensed. Weeks also lives very close to several people he ratted out. Contrary to what he says, Weeks ratted out more than a dozen people in South Boston to save his own skin. Flaunting his immunity in front of all these people he sent to jail will inevitably result in some friction.

      1. Patty- I was not able to see it yet. It was on FRI august 2, do you know if kevin weeks is now working as an exterminator? There was a picture on this blog that someone put up from Google maps and he is near his green truck. I was only wondering because cyanide is pretty rare, only guy I ever knew of that killed with it was Richard Kuklinski.

        1. Thomas,

          I haven’t heard or seen anything to suggest Weeks worked as an exterminator. Since his release from Witness Security I know he has worked on an office painting crew and as a union laborer on construction projects. He testified last month that he was at that time out injured from some job after being hit by a machine. Pat Nee also worked for the same union laborers local after he was released. Small world.

        I haven’t seen the show but I’m astonished that such an in-your-face presentation by Nee would no go unanswered by law enforcement

        If it were back in my time, even though it was in Suffolk County I’d have been all over it and found a way to connect it to Norfolk to get a couple of wires to track them down. Where have all our law enforcement people gone?

        That has become the obscene part of our society that the federal government protects some criminal and not others. How then does that make us all equal under the law?

        How long will it be before the bright lights of gangsterdom call Weeks home? This time however Whitey won’t be there to protect him; he’ll have a direct line to some FBI agent who will be telling him: “my job is to keep you safe.”

        I’m really bothered, as you know, about the FBI and its ability to kill a man and then not be accountable for doing it. Have the years working with, partnering with, and protecting top echelon informants made them develop the mores of their criminal partners. It’s really beginning to look like it.

    1. Patty:

      You knew it would happen. The DEA gets the information and put in is affidavit that it came from “informant A who has proven reliable in the past” with informant A being the NSA which has seized the information without warrant and is distributing it to law enforcement agencies.

      Don’t they understand that they are no better than the people they are after when they lie about their sources of information. We now have criminals going after criminals. Soon it will be the criminals coming after non-criminals, as if that is not already happening.
