“Jim Bulger was very pleased with how the trial went,” Carney said. “Mr. Bulger knew as soon as he was arrested that he was going to die behind the walls of a prison or on a gurney and injected with chemicals that would kill him. This trial has never been about Jim Bulger being set free.”

Carney said Bulger wanted to make sure people saw the corruption in the government and the deals the government was willing to make with known criminals over the years.
