I started this webpage when promoting my latest book on the story behind the myth of James "Whitey" Bulger, The Truth Be Damned.

My experience as a juror in his trial forced me to view the depth of corruption within our federal legal/judicial system--further study, and personal experience, exposed the corruption within State legal systems and courts across America.

Our Founding Fathers/Mothers were willing to risk all they had and were to set this nation upon a solid foundation. A main pillar in this foundation was a fair and just legal system. Over the course of decades that pillar has been chipped away. It is crumbling. When it falls, the nation falls too. Is it too late to repair the damage?

Since the close of the Bulger trial in 2013, I have been in an ideological depression. Patriotic holidays lost their meaning. My sorrow for the forgotten heroism of so many that stood (and often fell) to birth and sustain this nation was, at times, overwhelming.

I live in Massachusetts. Here, we set aside April 19th as a holiday. It's referred to as Patriot's Day. Most living in Massachusetts don't know why. They've come to think it's because the Boston Marathon is usually held on that day. Some even believe it's in honor of the local football team... It's not.

It's a day set aside for heroes. Men, and the women and children who supported them, tried for more than 10 long years to reason with the power of Great Britain. Over the tax on tea? No! Although that, sadly, is what most Americans believe. It was over the corruption of power, and what power drives the powerful to do to those less powerful. It was over the fact that the Creator granted to mankind -- all mankind -- the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

When it was obvious that Great Britain was not listening (sending 4.000 soldiers to police the streets of Boston kind of gave it away!) the Massachusetts's colonists continued to watch, hope, wait, and prepare as best they could. What finally pushed them to the precipice of war? The fact that the King was sending 1,000 more troops. A standing army in a time of peace. The time had come. It was not an elated decision, but one of grief and deep concern.

These men, and their families with them, were about to take up arms against the mightiest army and navy on Earth at the time. Only some of the colonists had military training. Weapons and equipment to support a standing army simply didn't exist. What of the food, clothing, shelter and medical supplies needed?

They were certain to die quickly in their attempt. to stand against the might of Britain. Yet, even so, they answered the call to turn out. They brought what little gear they had. They were ready to fight side by side; young and old; rich and poor.

The Minute Men were ready to die -- and their families ready to face whatever the future brought.

The mission of Billy Dawes, Paul Revere, and Samuel Prescott, Israel Bissel, and Sybil Ludington to warn of the British march from Boston to Concord came on April 18, 1775.

The Battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. Patriot's Day

Why was John Connolly given a 40 years sentence in Florida when his buddy and superior in the FBI John Morris was never indicted? In fact, the despicable Morris was promoted within the FBI and retired with a full pension that US tax payers still cover.

Why was John Connolly given a 40 year sentence in Florida when serial killer John Martorano served only 12 years for 20 murders?

It's a peculiar story--like so many involving the Boston US Attorney's Office. It's a story worth investigation by an ethical journalist... But, they're a rare breed. Almost extinct.

Connolly, according to Bulger, took large sums of money ($500,000) from him in exchange for information. Bulger claimed that Connolly was manipulated by him. Connolly certainly was dirty.

Bulger claimed that Morris also took large sums of money ($500,000) from him in exchange for information. Morris was dirty. (Revealed in Bulger's trial-When Morris's wife wanted a divorce, which would expose their finances, Morris asked Bulger to kill her! Bulger refused. Morris wasn't happy he refused.) As the Feds were closing in on Morris, the Despicable One ran to the Boston Globe with a tale about Bulger they couldn't resist, even though rules of conduct and serious ethical boundaries were trampled.

John Martorano sang his song for the Feds in order to buy his escape from the electric chair and a long prison. Weeks and Flemmi, desperate for their own get out of jail card, were able, perhaps with the help of the attorney they shared, to sing in harmony with Johnny M. when it came to Connolly (and Bulger!)

Johnny M., with his friend Callahan's blood on his soul, blamed everyone else for the murder he committed. "Bulger made me do it!" Was the refrain in his song. "Connolly was involved too!" Became part of the lyrics.

Because of Johnny M's song, harmonized by Weeks and Flemmi, Connolly was charged as an accessory in Callahan's murder.

Assistant US Attorney Freddie Wyshak seemingly became adept at conducting his little chorus; then he went on and joined the Florida prosecution team in going after Connolly.

Part of the charge against Connolly was that he was in possession of a fire arm when Callahan was murdered. Whoa! That's bad!

But, let's think about this (without the Boston media telling you how to think) Connolly was an FBI agent. Of course he had a gun in his possession. And, that gun, along with Connolly, were in Massachusetts, not Florida, at the time Callahan was gunned down by his best friend Johnny M.

These facts didn't seem to get in the way of the Florida jury's deliberations. Connolly was found guilty of having the gun when Callahan died... Jeez!

Connolly spent 19 years in prison--more time than Johnny M. did for cutting down 20 people (12 years--do the math--less than 6 months for every murder).

Connolly spent more time in prison than the Despicable One--oh, yeah--Morris didn't serve at all...

The way I see it is this: Connolly was a dirty cop and served his time.

Why is it that the Boston media can't leave it alone? Why are they asking Callahan's family how they feel about Connolly's release? Why not ask them how they feel about Johnny M. living a normal life in a normal neighborhood as he collects his Social Security check? (Do you know who your neighbors are?)

Why not ask the families of Michael Donahue or Brian Halloran how they feel with the Despicable One never being punished for the deaths of their loved ones?

John Callahan was a wanna be thug, and the best friend, for 25 years, of serial killer Johnny Martorano. Callahan, was embezzling funds from his boss, Roger Wheeler. Mr. Wheeler was beginning an investigation. Callahan, afraid he'd be found out, asked his BFF Johnny M. to take care of the problem and kill Mr. Wheeler.

According to Whitey Bulger, Martorano sought his help. Bulger said, "No." He said, "Don't do it."

Johnny M., always wanting to help out a friend, didn't listen. He murdered Mr. Wheeler.

Now Mrs. Wheeler was beginning an investigation of the embezzled funds--and law enforcement was investigating Mr. Wheeler's murder.

Uh-oh.... Not looking good for Callahan.

Johnny M. knew that a wanna be thug probably wouldn't hold up well under pressure in a murder investigation. After all, Callahan knew Martorano killed Mr. Wheeler, and would probably offer up that information if threatened with the electric chair. Now Johnny M. had a big problem.

Again Johnny M. sought out the help of Bulger, who basically said, "Told you so" and told Johnny M. to uproot and go into hiding and let the investigation run it's course. Johnny M. didn't want to uproot, he had already established himself on the lam comfortably in Florida. Johnny M. didn't listen. Instead, he shot Callahan in the back of the head and stuffed him in the trunk of a car.

By and by, Johnny M. eventually confessed to this murder but said that "Bulger made me do it."

The Feds, for their own dark reasons seemingly eager to get Bulger by whatever means, made a deal with Johnny M. for his testimony against Bulger--didn't mean the testimony was true. Johnny M. served less than 6 months for the murder of his best friend Callahan's murder. He served less than 6 months for the murder of Mr. Wheeler.

Martorano served less than 6 months for each of the other 18 murders he confessed to-- 2 of them being innocent kids in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Boston newspapers, conveniently forgetting that Callahan initiated Mr. Wheeler's murder, present him as a victim. Not a "victim" of Martorano, but of Bulger and FBI Special Agent John Connolly....

John Callahan--Murderer

John Martorano--Serial Killer

Mr. Roger Wheeler -- the Only Victim
