Week In Review: ‘Whitey,’ Rakes, Flemmi, Tsarnaev
In the trial of admitted mobster James “Whitey” Bulger, Stephen “Stippo” Rakes had waited decades to tell the public how Bulger forced him to sell his liquor store. Until his body was found in Lincoln on the day he was originally scheduled to testify.
Bulger’s closest partner-in-crime, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi takes the stand.
And heated controversy over the cover of the latest edition of Rolling Stone magazine, featuring a flattering photo of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
