4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book among many choices.
Norman Hall's Police Exam Prep Book gives you a good idea of what to expect with many police exams. I found "Barron's Police Officer Exam" book to have a slight edge, because it's more up to date and better organized. I also like "Guide to Careers in Federal Law Enforcement" and "FBI Careers," both by Thomas H. Ackerman, as prep guides for careers in federal law enforcement. Although all of the books mentioned above are excellent, my choice is Barron's for cop jobs and Ackerman for the feds.

5-0 out of 5 stars 98% + 5% (Military points) = 103%
The author gives a great knock down on the material and basics of civil service testing for police officer. However, there are several tests out there that ask personality type questions. The book will not be of much help to one in this area. Answer the questions honestly and keep your integrity intact. If you don't pass, hold your chin up and go on to the next test. Chances are that the police department that uses the personality type civil service exam, need flexibility in choosing the right individuals for their department. Yes, the good old boy system is still alive and kicking. Don't feel blue. It is no reflection of one's intelligence or how well you test. Recently, I took a text-book, civil service exam. With the use of this book, I was able to score very high. If you are looking to pass the Police Officer Civil Service Exam, I highly recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cetainly Worth the Money
I found this book to be a good way to prepare for the civil service test I took. It prepared me for all the questions I may encounter except for a small portion. I did, however, as I was doing the practice exams, find mistakes in the answer key. This occured only on one or two questions, but was certainly misleading. Otherwise, this is a very good preparation book. I received a raw score of 86.7 and with college credit I will have a 95. If I take the test again, I will try another preparation book.

5-0 out of 5 stars No More Struggling on the Police Exam
I struggled on numerous written police exams not making it to the next step in the hiring process. After reading every chapter, studying the problems and taking the two practice exams in "Norman Hall's Police Exam Preparation Book" I scored an 83% on the test. This book is a must if You are serious about becoming a police officer and are struggling with the written test portion in the hiring process. I felt relaxed and confident because the test seemed so much easier after Norm Hall prepared me for the hardest of questions and overall a higher caliber test then it actually turn out to be. I highly recommend this book to anyone trying to pass the written exam or just boost their score. Good luck. ... Read more

Book Description

In 1982, Sister Helen Prejean became the spiritual advisor to Patrick Sonnier, the convicted killer of two teenagers who was sentenced to die in the electric chair of Louisiana's Angola State Prison. In the months before Sonnier's death, the Roman Catholic nun came to know a man who was as terrified as he had once been terrifying. At the same time, she came to know the families of the victims and the men whose job it was to execute him--men who often harbored doubts about the rightness of what they were doing.

Out of that dreadful intimacy comes a profoundly moving spiritual journey through our system of capital punishment. Confronting both the plight of the condemned and the rage of the bereaved, the needs of a crime-ridden society and the Christian imperative of love, Dead Man Walking is an unprecedented look at the human consequences of the death penalty, a book that is both enlightening and devastating.

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful and thought provoking
Certainly a great book - wonderfully written and very moving. I came away feeling guilty that I had ever favoured capital punishment. I read more on the subject and came across a sentence written by John Douglas, the FBI 'profiler'. He said, "I am much more interested in giving an innocent victim a first chance than I am in giving a convicted criminal a second chance." And that, to me, is the real point. If there was REAL life imprisonment then we could feel safe knowing that some convicted killers could not be set free to kill again. It is all too easy to feel sympathy for someone waiting years to die on 'death row'. But it makes me very uneasy to think that just one could be released to harm my family. No, I am sorry Helen, but until you can lock them up for good, I'm going to support John Douglas. I am going to give my family a first chance rather than these convicted murderers a second chance. Nevertheless you are a dedicated and passionate person and a credit to the human race. God bless you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Prejean is a Pleasure
In this book Helen Prejean does a wonderful job of both enlightening and informing her reader, without boring him or her. I have always known that I was against the death penalty, and this book, along with Sr Helen's experiences, completely affirms my belief, Not only are the book & movie well-done, but Prejean is wonderful to listen to. If you ever have the chance to hear her speak live, DO IT! I had the chance to hear her this past year in college, and then was able to participate in a question/answer session with her in a small group. She was most impressive in both venues, and had excellent answers for the audience's sometimes-antagonistic questions. In fact, the night spent listening to her speak was the most spiritually moving time of my short life.

4-0 out of 5 stars A movie which shows all views, not typical for Hollywood
The movie tries to be neutral so that everyone is able to interpret it his/her own way. You can learn a lot while you see it cause no one can imagine all the (cruel) details of the execution process.
I liked the way the characters are presented, they are not
stereotype Hollywood figures but it seems like this movie really shows the true story of sister Helen and Matt without trying to make it nicer for the audience and without giving it a happy ending. Furthermore, the movie is really touching and I can't understand those people who watch it and still don't see that death penalty is no solution and does no good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Re: Florida cases: Roy Swafford and Peter Ventura:
For those interested in reading the four to three vote Florida Supreme Court opinions regarding two more death sentenced persons whose innocence is an authentic issue, please go to, then go to "Opinions and Rules", then chose the correct year and scroll down to the following two cases:

Roy Swafford: April 18, 2002 Case No. 92.173

Peter Ventura: May 24, 2001 Case No. 93.839

These two cases are findable under "Court Orders: Case Disposition Orders" and "Briefs in Other Cases" sections of the "Press Page":

Roy Swafford: March 26, 2004 Case Nos. 03.931 and 03.1153

Book Description

What if our criminal justice system is biased against the poor from start to finish - from the definition of what constitutes a crime through the process of arrest, trial, and sentencing? The author argues that actions of well-off people - refusal to make workplaces safe, refusal to curtail deadly pollution, promotion of unnecessary surgery, prescription of unnecessary drugs, etc. - cause occupational and environmental hazards to innocent members of the public and produce as much death, destruction, and financial loss as so-called crimes of the poor. However, these crimes of the well-off are rarely treated as severely as those of the poor. Reiman documents the extent of anti-poor bias in arrest, conviction, and sentencing practices and shows that the bias is conjoined with a general refusal to remedy the causes of crime - poverty, poor education, and discrimination. As a result, the criminal justice system fails to reduce crime.The author uses numerous studies and examples to illustrate his points, and difficult concepts are explained in a non-technical manner. The book is a useful counter to the uproar about crime. It provokes thought and discussion, even among people who disagree with its content. For anyone interested in issues of class, social deviance, ethics, or criminal justice. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars More Complex than Poverty = Crime
Professor Reiman's book goes beyond what is perceived as the usual worn out academic argument of blaming crime on poverty. The book is very clear that the problem of crime is much more complex than a simple correlation of "poverty causes crime." The main point of the book is that capitalism causes crime. Capitalism also causes poverty, but further, capitalism causes greed and power. Reiman makes an important move (though not the first one to do so) by looking into white-collar crime and how the rich are getting richer by breaking serious laws that have a huge impact on our economy and our society's general quality of life; while the poor are getting prison for committing crimes with far less macro ramifications for society. White-collar crime is linked to poverty only in the since that without poverty, white-collar crime would not be possible. This takes us back to the position that capitalism causes crime. However, Reiman is careful not to be a believer in utopian ideals. There is no suggestion in his book that crime would disappear if our society were to move toward, or become, a just society. The point is that crime would be less necessary if poverty and greed were not social norms.

Professor Reiman constructs a well researched argument to show why our prisons are overflowing with people who were under-represented (if at all) in court because their economic status caused them to have an incompetent or over-worked court appointed attorney; while people like Kenneth Lay are still free and endangering our society. This book is an important tool for understanding current social relations and what we have to do before we can be safe and free.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gnius
I found Reiman's work to be of high scholarly value to any critical thinker regardless of field. He willingly unravels myths that have long banded our eyes to the deeper anomalies and injustices of this 'criminal' 'justice' SYSTEM. Hopefully, others in related fields will follow his example, not readily accepting the obvious impression as a true impression, but to test what is a real image and what is distorted.

1-0 out of 5 stars Here we go again.
This book contains the usual worn out far left liberal drivel that college profesors have been trying to shove down the throats of uninformed students since the 60's. In particular, the author's attempt to blame crime on poverty, etc. etc. leaves me nauseous. Has he ever considered that our culture's failure to teach its young about moral absolutes might be a contributing factor? He is entitled to his opinions, however misinformed they may be, but the book should come jacketed with a warning label.

5-0 out of 5 stars Knock-Knock! Time to Wake Up!
Professor Reiman's latest work is on point. The citizens of this country who read, who vote, who have some degree of influence over politicians must start to work now. Work as if you were marching to the railroad siding and the cattle cars and the eventual Final Solution. The US Constitution and the body of laws in the USA are perverted and only you can help. Jeff Reiman's clear and exciting words spell out the problem and the solution. After reading this book you will want to take one of Professor Reiman's CJ Courses ... I was one of his students in the 1970's at American University and his was the only class I really wanted to be in!

5-0 out of 5 stars "But 6 rings and I rise, wipe the sleep out from my eyes"
This is a wake-up call. Jeffrey Reiman presents us an impeccably researched, very forceful argument against the criminal justice system as it is. He makes some claims that initially seem incredibly shocking and wild, but by the time you finish you'll at least understand if not fully agree.

Basically, Reiman lays out how the criminal justice system has, over time and unintentionally, become the center of a class struggle. He argues that those in power receive the benefits, and the poorest suffer for their gain. He focuses on the ignorance of the fact that the upper classes are causing the most harm much of the time, yet still receive much lighter sentences than the relatively minor crimes of the poor. He touches on the idiocy of the wildly unsuccessful War on Drugs; the need for effective gun control; and the solutions lying within the alleviation of the harsh realities of poor, inner-city life.

His politics are far left; in fact, a little left of far left. This book is not for the faint of heart (he proposes the legalization of heroin at one point) or Republicans (probably most Democrats will find themselves a bit uncomfortable, too.) It's a fascinating, tight argument though that will at the very least create realization of some strong feelings regarding the criminal justice process. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars There Are More Useful
As a first year law student, I bought this book thinking it would help me and supplement the class. However, I found this book not very useful. In fact, I found it frustrating. I would find it brief in the places I needed the most hope and long and drawn out over issues that were simple. While the book does a nice job of covering basic concepts like mens rea {sorry if spellings wrong its been two years), I felt uncomfortable using it for specific crimes. Too often because either you're working from a model code or your own state's law, this book was only good for a general perspective. In addition, I feel that if you want something to help you and something more than the Emmanuel's, I recommend the "Understanding" Series. I bought that as well for this class, and I felt it was much better written and was focused on helping you to learn the actual issues. This book should probablely be used, if at all by practitioner or individuals who have already studied the material (like for bar review). I would encourage you to go elsewhere for help in learning the material. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book!
Very informative. Great details. It goes over everything that a person should know.

2-0 out of 5 stars Avoid this book!
I read this book as a required text for a Masters program in Forensic Science. Having read the previous reviews on the book, I was not expecting a particularly good textbook, but I do not believe that the other reviews do justice to how totally worthless this book is. I feel obliged to write a review of my own to balance the scales, as it were.

First off, the comment regarding the numerous typographical and grammatical errors in the book is grossly understated. I cannot believe that this book ever saw an editor's desk. I have randomly opened the book to several pages, and quickly found the following sentences, which I believe should illustrate my point:

- Most importantly [sic] by keeping the suspect away from the scene, any physical evidence found at the scene that originated from the suspect will link the suspect to the scene only at the time of the crime and not from the suspect having been returned to the scene for identification by victims or witnesses. p.53 (grammatical error, poorly written and confusing)

- Access [sic] the type of scene, the boundary of the scene, and the personnel and equipment needed. p 58. (should read, 'assess')

There are others, as well - alas, I have forgotten the sentence I came across while reading for class that contained a minimum of 5 errors. Yes. One sentence.

My most significant complaint, however, is that the book is simply not thorough. This is primarily due to the fact that it appears to have been written for idiots - all the major areas are touched upon, but there appears to be a fear that tackling them in detail would confuse people. So, instead, each technique is mentioned only in passing, leaving the reader with only a very vague overview of what goes on at a crime scene. Any person actually practicing in the field of forensic science is bound to be disappointed by its lack of depth, detail, and 'new' material. This likely also applies to anyone who has read any other books on the subject, whether they are active in the field or not.

For those who are interested in the subject and looking for a much better primer, I would suggest Fisher's 'Techniques of Crime Scene Investigation,' instead. While he does not have the friendly or chatty writing style that Lee has (the only thing going for Lee's book, incidentally), he is significantly more thorough. The book is also more well-regarded in the field, based on everything I have heard. This is not to say that Lee does not have a prominent name in forensics - quite the contrary. But, I would hate to think that anyone would purchase this book on his name alone. He should stick to spoken lectures, at which he is quite excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars amazing
i will like to ricieve a copy of this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Response to Review
Response by Marilyn T. Miller. I am compelled to respond to an earlier review. This book was a cooperative work of all three authors but was done under the direct guidance and care of Henry Lee. Crime scene investigation has been one of Dr. Lee's lifetime concerns. This book is the result of that dedication. The other authors owe a hugh amount of graditute to him for their participation in the effort.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good... but not that good.
This book was an exceptional take-home package of crime scene processing information in an easy-to-read format. However, the chosen title for this work is egotistical and arrogant. There are a large number of typographical errors, but the book is actually quite useful. I must say, please wait for the second edition before purchasing this book. ... Read more

Book Description

This best-selling text focuses on forms of correctional punishments and treatment programs that are based in the community for convicted offenders. Although some offenders need to be incarcerated in prison for public safety reasons, this text argues that the vast majority of offenders can be effectively supervised in the community using a wide array of programs that meet the level of risk and needs that each individual poses. Programs that are discussed include probation, parole, electronic monitoring, house arrest, day-treatment centers, bootcamps, restitution, and fines. With a balanced approach, this text reflects a strong emphasis on practical and legal matters related to alternatives to prison and jail. This Sixth Edition features a new five-part organization, a line-by-line update, a new citation style (APA), and a wide array of ancillaries. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Still more valuable than talking heads
This book collects interview and discussions with Chomsky shortly after the September 11th attacks. For those who want something a bit more enlightening, Chomsky puts forth bold assertions that many people wouldn't be willing to even consider in the wake of the attacks. One of his main assertions throughout is that if the US wants to really fight terrorism, we should stop participating in it. He cites specific, uncontroversial examples such as Nicaragua and the Contras, or Turkey, where massive US aid (by Bubba) helped the government do to the Kurds what we bombed Milosevic for when he tried it with Albanians.

I don't agree that Chomsky is insensitive to the victims of 9/11 in this book. I believe that his attitude is similar to many others': that such an event, while shocking, is not entirely surprising, especially to anyone who's been paying attention to the world in the last decade. Of course, he condemns the actions. He does not rant that American lives are paramount in the face of other atrocities, which may not make his critics happy, but he also regularly acknowledges that, in our society, we simply do not ask certain questions.

Therefore, it's disconcerting to some that Chomsky is able to discuss the matters of 9/11, terrorism, and the USA's global presence with what sounds like an almost arrogant detachment. Unlike the countless pundits on TV though, Chomsky rarely generalizes and cites sources for his facts. He may skew them how he likes, but he rarely makes up whoppers to prove a point, a favorite element of television debate.

Chomsky has been vocal about America's foreign policy for decades, and it's entirely reasonable to suggest that his tone is now relentlessly radical left with an evil eye for capitalism. However, I still believe reading Chomsky is a heck of a lot more valuable for the average reader and more enlightening than hours of CNN, Fox, or the wrapped-in-the-flag latest book from a TV 'pundit'.

It's funny, whenever a corporate media pundit mentions Chomsky, it's usually to rip him as 'anti-American', yet the points he actually makes are rarely refuted. Just calling him an 'intellectual' (he does not consider himself such) or an 'academic' is enough to discredit him in the eyes of those who see intellectuals and anyone critical of America as evil incarnate and in league with terrorists. Since he often cites specific facts though at times selectively, and he jettisons bombast in favor of serious consideration, he is the complete antithesis of loudmouth talking heads. Chomsky's arguments are certainly not airtight, but his presentation of facts, his acknowledgement of the de facto state of opinion, debate, and education in America, and his straightforward tone (he is very lucid in his speech and writing) make this a very compelling and important read.

2-0 out of 5 stars Flawed and irritating.
In this series of interviews conducted by fawning journalists, Chomsky does the following things: (1) lambaste the US incessantly for past military interventions, (2) analyze the causes of the attacks of 9/11 and (3) suggest that the US seek justice by proper, legal means instead of by military action.

(1) doesn't really need to be discussed here; that can be discussed in reviews about his other books. Suffice it to say that Chomsky claims that US foreign policy is completely driven by corporate interests (weapons manufacturers, oil companies, etc) who influence the federal government to commit atrocities and prop up tyrants in foreign countries.

Regarding (2), Chomsky notes that Osama bin Laden has communicated to us via his camcorder that he wants the US completely out of the Middle East. Bin Laden wants the US to remove its troops from Saudi Arabia and stop supplying aid to the "not properly Islamic" government of Saudi Arabia, Israel, and other nations. Chomsky correctly mentions that these demands are religiously motivated; however, this point is easily lost when Chomsky rips the US for its military campaigns in Third World countries, leading one to believe that the attacks of 9/11 were a desperate act of retaliation by members of an oppressed nation. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth: bin Laden's suicide pilots were all well-to-do Saudis. The attacks were motivated by a fundamemtalist and militant strain of Islam, not by poverty and oppression.

Point (3) is completely off base. Chomsky suggests that the US seek to find and apprehend the perpetrators and sponsors of the attacks by proper, legal means (under the aegis of the UN). Chomsky tries to draw an analogy with the activities of the IRA, noting that the UK doesn't drop bombs on Boston when the Irish Republican Army attacks. However, this analogy is fatally flawed for the simple reason that the Taliban neither had the ability nor the inclination to capture al-Qaeda forces. (Incidentally, the conclusion above holds if one replaces "US" with "Israel," "Taliban" with "PLO", and "al-Qaeda" with "Hamas".) It is true that the US could have done more to minimize civilian casualties (e.g. send in its own ground troops instead of relying exclusively on bombing and Northern Alliancs proxy troops), but it's ridiculous to think that there might have been a completely civil method of administering justice to al-Qaeda.

Finally, it's quite obvious that all of the journalists conducting these interviews are huge Chomsky fans, and that makes reading this book very irritating.

1-0 out of 5 stars Morally bankrupt relativism
Chomsky has made a career out of knee-jerk anti-Americanism by any and all means, and "9/-11" is no exception. In leu of a well-thought out exegesis, we find a jumbled collection of email interviews and remarks. For an issue as serious as this, one would think Chomsky could make an effort at scholarship. But Chomsky, so used to preaching to a loyal choir, has no had to make any scholastic effort for a long time. Moreover, this book is shallow in its understandings of the complex dynamics of the Middle East. Chomsky, having little experience or knowledge in this area, is notably useless as a Middle East commentator or in explaining what motivates jihadi terror. His area of expertise--uncritical blame and Leftist demonization of the US--is likewise not very enlightening. This book is proof that Chomsky can publish almost anything, even some emails, and his loyal fanbase will always buy it. (Although profiting from 9/11 while not contributing much to the discussion strikes me as unethical in and of itself). Overall, I found this book very disappointing.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Voice of Reason on An Emotional Subject
For the most part Chomsky is closer to the truth than his detractors.

Years ago I was a student at MIT and had a laboratory close to Chomsky's office in the old research MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics. At that time, and for many years later I thought Chomsky was a rabid liberal- socialist that was out somewhere in left field on many issues.

Of course I had formed that opinion without reading his books! But I knew that he had written dozens of books, was made an Institute Professor (which is a big deal at MIT) had written hundreds of papers and had at least 20 honorary doctorates from universities all around the world. When I sat down and read his books page by page I was converted. He simply presents the facts in a cool and detached manner. The facts speak quite eloquently for themselves and they are damming of US foreign policy.

On 9-11 and after like many others if I had been the President I would have ordered a military strike. It was and is a natural response as if your wife was raped or a child killed by a criminal. We wanted revenge for the 3,000 killed. Even Rudolph Giuliani told Bush he wanted to personally pull the trigger when Bin Laden was captured. It was a time of high emotion. Bush followed human instincts and his advisors, and indeed at lot of pressure from the American public and the congress to do something.

Chomsky of course has taken a more rational approach and has tried to formulate a quick analysis of what happened and where we have gone wrong. This is a short book but otherwise excellent. It is a question and answer format. I cannot agree with everything in the book but it gives a fair portrayal of many aspects of the problem. In many respects the US has become a rogue nation, pumped up with layer of propaganda and patriot rhetoric that has permitted the government for over 45 years and often with congressional and public support to invade Afghanistan, Cambodia, Cuba, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Grenada, Panama, Somalia, Haiti, Kosovo, Iraq, to send troops to Lebanon, to bomb Yemen, Libya, and the Sudan. No wonder the US has enemies. If we are upset about the 3,000 killed on 9-11 what do the Vietnamese think of the 2 million killed by the USA?

It is time for a complete re-think of the US foreign policy and the role of the UN and other institutions such that groups and countries will act within a set of internationally accepted laws. Then variations from those laws will be addressed by all nations acting together, not just the US following its own self interests for better or for worse. That is the value of this thin book on 9-11.

My humble opinion.

Jack in Toronto

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, and inappropriately reviewed
I really wonder if the Library Journal reviewer bothered to read the whole book, or just stopped when he found that Chomsky was departing from the post-9/11 unquestioning acceptance of the 'US vs. the evildoers' party line.
"Chomsky condemns the attacks specifically and then suggests that the deaths are entirely the responsibility of capitalist globalization" - That is a complete misrepresentation; Chomsky repeats several times that Bin Laden and his ilk don't care about globalization. What has created anti-American sentiment around the world, in Chomsky's view, is a US foreign policy dictated by the interests of energy companies, and which supports brutal, anti-human rights dictatorships in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries because it guarantees access to cheap oil. This book was written before the recent US takeover of Iraq, but Chomsky's arguments are quite prescient... ... Read more

Book Description

John Connoly and James "Whitey" Bulger grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the mid 1970's, they would meet again.  By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI's Boston office and Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob.  What happened next -- a dirty deal to being down the Italian mob in exchange for protection for Bulger -- would spiral out of control, leading to murders, drug dealing, racketeering indictments, and, ultimately, the biggest informant scandal in the history of the FBI.

Compellingly told by two Boston Globe reporters who were on the case from the beginning, Black Mass is at once a riveting crime story, a cautionary tale about the abuse of power, and a penetrating look at Boston and its Irish population.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Incredible Journey
In this case we see how a covert operation can be carried out and its participants dispensed with when the job is done. The government is shredding Flemmi's family apart, turning relatives against one another. It seems plausible a number of players now prevalent in the Bulger case are in fact long term plants held in abeyance until the time is right, such as with Martorano and Weeks.

An acquaintance who has been totally destroyed since Bulger fled in 1995 has been approached by individuals claiming family ties to the upper tiers of local and national FBI managementwhile having been misled by the Justice Management Division of the Department of Justice. These approaches usually involve intimidation or extortion with the deliverers claiming FBI affiliation in the Merrimack Valley region of northern Massachusetts which includes a regional FBI office outside of the Boston office.

Has the Defense Investigative Service and FBI teamed up to squeeze a child of Bulger or a close friend of Bulger's to keep Bulger away?

Are Whitey Bulger and Flemmi's names being smeared to bringclosure to their roles in a covert operation?

3-0 out of 5 stars Leaves a lot out
O'Neill & Lehr have a history with the Bulger brothers as does Jeremiah O'Sullivan. O'Neill & Lehr interviewed William Bulger about misconstrued dealings with 75 State Street. Whitey had an advocate in former Speaker of the House John McCormack, who believed Whitey could do quite well if given half a chance. Whitey also worked for a short time as a custodian at the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. William Bulger is heavily connected, having ties to Jackie Birmingham, Thomas Birmingham's father, Senator John Kerry who has indirect ties to the extended Kennedy clan and many other notables. In his book William Bulger details how thorough FBI scrutiny can be and it is likely the FBI has extensively monitored the entire family. What might have happened in this case is that drastic measures were taken to mediate the escalating violence of the Mclean-Mclaughlin wars which claimed many more lives than what Bulger and Flemmi have been accused of taking. It is unlikely that action against Connolly, Flemmi and Bulger will effect any long term solution, as the system their organization perpetuated has strong buy in at the highest levels of government. Going after these 3 is like a company firing an executive to quench the public thirst for vengeance, but the organization itself perpetuates with new players. There are many many more individuals such as Flemmi and Bulger in the area and which have not gotten anywhere near the heat these guys have. They have been listed in local newspapers.And there has been a much stronger link between organized crime and law enforcement than one might suspect. Organized crime may actually help law enforcement by breaking down geographical regions into empires of control and holding those organized crime groups accountable, thus minimizing random crime.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can i have more please?
This is a study in how informants are made and maintained... Here is an example of how one man, probably linked to this case without his knowledge, was approached..

The man worked for a government contractor and shortly after weird things began happening. He suddenly lost a good civilian job,began getting routine IRS audits, had phone and email problems, and was approached by a number of women who befriended the man, rejected overtures for dates, then reported back the man was gay--falsely. Friends speculated NSA,the CIA or FBI was involved because all of these have a role in this Bulger case. Then the man became unemployable and had evidence of continuous bank record monitoring. When new 'friends' appeared and the man began noting checks on money being used to help them, those bank records suddenly became tampered with and the records unavailable, as if referring to a classified employee.

4-0 out of 5 stars Depressing but fascinating
Written by two veteran Boston reporters, "Black Mass" is a story of crime and corruption that turns into a gripping tale of good intentions gone awry. Taking place on the mean streets of South Boston, a mere twenty miles or so from where I've lived my whole life, this book tells of a violent intersection of cultures: the tribal culture of Irish America, the often-closed culture of the Federal Bureau of investigation, and the violent culture of organized crime. And unfortunately, it's all true. At bottom, "Black Mass" presents a haze of divided allegiances and moral ambiguity, that may well shake your faith in our government-appointed protectors.

Looming large over the whole story is the imposing figure of James J. Bulger Jr., or "Whitey Buljah" as he is more commonly known around these parts. Long before the Bloods and Crips were household names, Bulger emerged from a culture where street gangs were omnipresent and career options for adults were mostly restricted to the Armed services, politics, factory and police work, or crime. Unfortunately, Whitey Bulger never quite outgrew the gang culture of his youth, and he proved exceedingly skilled at the crime profession. As intelligent as he was soulless, Bulger graduated from street enforcer to bank robber (with a stint in Alactraz along the way) to organized crime kingpin with his hand in all things illegal as the head of the vicious Winter Hill Gang. Along for the ride was the aptly nicknamed Stevie "The Rifleman" Flemmi, a barbaric killer whose Mafia connections made him a perfect stoolie in the Boston FBI's war against the Mafia.

It was in 1975 against the backdrop of the FBI's battle with La Cosa Nostra that FBI agent John Connolly, who emerged from the same projects as Bulger, crafted a plan to bring Whitey and Flemmi into the Bureau's fold as informants. It sounded like a sweet deal for all those concerned: Bulger and Flemmi got to take out the Winter Hill Gang's competition, and the FBI got a well-placed ally in its effort to bring down Boston's ruling Angiulo family. Unfortunately, it didn't quite work out that way. The FBI did manage to bring down the Angiulos, due largely to its now-legendary wiretapping operation at Gennaro Angiulo's headquarters, but Bulger and Flemmi remained connected to the FBI long after they had outlived their usefulness. In fact, as this book makes clear, the two gangsters greatly enlarged their stature in Boston's underworld during the 1980's, and they did it with the full knowledge and even collaboration of the FBI.

As O'Neill and Lehr explain, the shared South Boston origins of Bulger and Connolly, which seemed like such an asset back in 1975 when Connolly was recruiting Whitey, ultimately became a liability. Coming from a tight-knit, tribal culture like Southie, Connolly couldn't exactly be counted on to maintain his objectivity in dealing with Bulger, whom he even came to refer to as a "good bad guy." An even deeper problem, though, was John Connolly himself: a smooth-talking lady's man who liked the high life a bit too much, Connolly eventually became virtually indistinguishable from his prized informants. Hanging out with Bulger and Flemmi and accepting their gifts, Connolly didn't just look the other way while Bulger, Flemmi & Co. enlarged their empire and the bodies piled up; he was an active assistant in their operation. Although they were frequently pursued by the Massachusetts State Police, local detectives, and even the DEA, the two gangsters were virtually untouchable.

Perhaps even worse, O'Neill and Lehr make it clear that the FBI's mishandling of its two prized informants went beyond John Connolly's corruption to encompass a massive institutional failure. With Connolly corrupted and a series of supervisors compromised, the Bureau's guidelines for oversight of informants became essentially null and void. Falsified reports that exaggerated Bulger and Flemmi's usefulness while understating their criminal activities became the norm, and even those in other law enforcement agencies who suspected something amiss had their efforts blocked. One painful lesson to be drawn from this book is that the law is only as strong as those who enforce it. When those charged with stopping crime drift to the other side, where do we turn then?

4-0 out of 5 stars Into the shredder
This is a captivating account of government methods,psychology and ethics. But ask yourself this:
Say Whitey or Flemmi or any other informants has children, does the government lay claim to those children to replace their parents in these roles? Will the government destroy such people if they do not want this kind of life? Take an example of one man who is said to have a father unknown to him but is alleged to have been a friend of Whitey unknown to the boy...
Before Bulger fled the man worked for a company with defense contracts and was told he was being cleared for a basic security clearance. The process took over a year and a half and required the man to sign an affidavit with the alleged defense official claiming never to file for bankruptcy again after being advised it was the only way to get the clearance and keep the job at the time after a lengthy unemployment. About a year after this process, the man was featured in a local Massachusetts newspaper looking for answers to his long last father. The paper changed ownership shortly after and the editor and reporter were unknown to the new editor and reporters. Shortly after Whitey fled the man was suddenly fired but not before being told by an alleged government official that he was to be monitored for an indeterminate amount of time and with no definitive scope to the monitoring or reason why. After being fired, the man had an IRS levy with no notice, annual IRS audits,missing money from his bank account in which the IRS had an account with the same national bank and threatening calls. Progressively the man was financially strangled and it became apparent the goal was to ruin him financially and monitor his communications and parties to which he was communicating.The end result was to bankrupt the man, make him unemployable, and to ultimately make him homeless and without a means to maintain a phone. The man was sequestered with a group of 10 people(which number matches a group of 10 alleged witnesses sequestered and announced as witnesses against Bulger in 1999 but which has never come to pass)who tormented the man for being responsible for the Bulger fiasco whil staging photos,etc. to make it look like the man was happily working with such a group.
New "friends" entered the man's life and as the man grew to like and trust them,they announced a friend or family member in the FBI just before the man was screwed in one form or another.This was a man with no criminal past.
Why has the government reform committee and now the Massachusetts state police given up on investigating this whole thing and why would the U.S. government target and destroy a person for a past unknown to them? Does Flemmi,Bulger or some other principal in the Bulger case have a child that is being used as a whipping boy to force cooperation or to keep perhaps Bulger in hiding? ... Read more
