Christopher McIntyre speaks on Bulger's arrest
BOSTON -- Bulger is accused in 19 murders and since the arrest the families of his alleged victims have been speaking out.
Christopher McIntyre opened up on Friday about the mobster's arrest.
According to police, his younger sibling, Quincy fisherman John McIntyre, was tortured and shot in the head by Bulger and his associate Steven Fleming back in 1984.
McIntyre called Whitey a “monster” and says he's pleased with the arrest.
“Bulger - everybody puts him up like he’s an Einstein. Bulger surrounded himself with ignorance…He did that for 40 years. The truth is going to come out about him now because he has no power. He’s a bully. When a bully doesn’t have his gang he’s nothing. And that’s what Bulger was - and I use that word “was” - he’s nothing anymore,” said Christopher McIntyre. “I was pleased [with the arrest] but don’t get me wrong, my family is very upset with the FBI of the 1980s. Without them there would be no Bulger. We're not letting them off the hook…and now we're gonna get Bulger. I believe that the FBI now is very responsible and I believe police in general are very responsible but back then it was a different story.”
McIntyre told us he plans to be in that courtroom for Bulger's first appearance.
