Whitey Bulger cooperated with FBI as early as ’50s
When he graduated from penny ante crime to the big leagues of bank robbery, James “Whitey” Bulger learned a hard lesson early on: everybody talks. And so he decided to play the game, too. Not to save himself, as he did in his later notorious role as an informant for the FBI. But to save his girlfriend, Jacqueline “Jacqui” McAuliffe. “Bulger orally admitted who his accomplices were in these bank robberies,” FBI Agent Herbert Briick wrote on July 5, 1956.
