Institutional Corruption on Trial — or Not — in CNN’s ‘Whitey’

His name was once second on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, right after that of Osama bin Laden. But even with notorious gangster Whitey Bulger captured, convicted and behind bars for the rest of his life in a federal penitentiary, the families of those he killed are not convinced that justice was done.

A new documentary, “Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger,” airing this week on CNN, examines the Bulger trial and attempts to make sense of a complicated case that put not only a lifelong gangster, but also the nation’s flawed law enforcement system, in the spotlight.
