Whitey Bulger, the fugitive Irish mob boss who Jack Nicholson depicted in the movie The Departed, was nabbed in Santa Monica, CA yesterday.
A good buddy of mine who is on the job spoke to me on the condition of anonymity about how the arrest went down:
Police: “Do you know why we’re here Mr. Bulger…Do you know what we do?”
Bulger: “Sir, yes, sir. I have an idea…”
Police: “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let’s say you have no idea and leave it at that, okay Mr. Bulger? No idea. Zip. None. If you had any idea about what we do, we would not be good at what we do now would we? We would be (another word for film producers). You calling us (another word for film producers)?”
