Assistant United States Attorney Brian Kelly told the court that the "real sham" is the defense Bulger's attorneys presented: that he wasn't a FBI informant and argued that because he was Irish he could not be an informant.
"He's a disgrace to the Irish,'' Kelly told the court. "The carnage that he has caused is grotesque. He's a little sociopath whose twisted view of the world...was to convince the court he was not an informant. That's the real sham of this trial."
