It was a flood of emotion that overwhelmed a federal courtroom in Boston on Wednesday when relatives of Whitey Bulger told of ther loves and their losses—and their utter contempt for the defendant. Bulger , 84, was convicted in August of 11 murders when he was the overtlord of the Boston underworld from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s. Many acknowledged that their fathers or husbands were no saints.

Theresa Bond, whose father, Arther, was shot in the head by Bulger, was charitable toward Bulger, who did not look at family members as they spoke.
