James 'Whitey' Bulger is one of America's most notorious organised crime figures having been responsible for a string of brutal murders over the course of his gangster career. In the 1970s, he was enlisted as an FBI informant which largely meant that a large proportion of his criminal misdeeds were left ignored by the Bureau in exchange for priceless information. Whitey boasted that he had contacts with officials from several police departments as well as the FBI itself, which was the reason he managed to avoid prosecution repeatedly. When it came out that the FBI had not been doing their job and protecting the public from Whitey's alarming dominance, they faced one of their most embarrassing scandals since they began. When he eventually appeared on the FBI's most wanted list, he was on the run for 16 years before his arrest in 2011 at the age of 81.
