"These are like two kids talking about a baseball game,'' Wyshak remarked. "Bulger continues to regale Flemmi" with the story of the murders.

Bulger's trial began on June 6, a year after he was captured at a Santa Monica apartment two blocks from the beach where he and his longtime companion Catherine Greig hid as fugitives using the names Charlie and Carol Gasko.

Wyshak admitted many of the prosecution's witnesses were hard to swallow.

"Nobody likes these men. These men, these co-conspirators, are the most reprehensible people to walk the streets of Boston,'' Wyshak told jurors, but he added that Bulger considered those witnesses his closest friends.

"He's the same as they are," the prosecutor said.

On Friday Bulger refused to take the stand in his own defense, only after delivering a short tirade to federal judge Denise Casper during which he called his trial "a sham."

"Do what yous [cq] want with me,'' Bulger told court, his face flushed red.
