    Your article, for once, depicts a fairly candid discussion of the federal criminal prosecution business in Boston. Fred Wyshak and his office do not walk on water and are in the business of selling "faction" (a little fact surrounded by fiction) to further their careers. As someone who was prosecuted in the 3rd series of Bulger related indictments, when they did not have a crime within the five-year statute of limitations, those blowjobs framed me with perjury to make a case. Now they are fighting to keep secret their cover-up of highly exculpatory evidence that includes federal Customs/DOJ investigations into the lead agents and Wyshak for obstruction and suborning perjury from informants to frame targets of Weeks/Murray/Teamsters case. (See US v. Cashman, 02-10015-DPW, sealed docket nos. 49-50, 55-63, 75-77, 83-91, 100-108.) It should be noted that some of the federal judges in Boston assigned to these cases were former federal prosecutors who are part of the same government club.

    What makes the nauseatingly righteous tone of this 2011 article possible in a semi serious mainstream magazine is that the Clinton/ Cheney legacies of “truthiness” masking criminal breaches of ethics have enured us to just how far down we’ve allowed public figures to rut about. Martyr my Ass!

    Despite his self-righteous and self-serving preaching, John Connolly continues to refuse to acknowledge his utter disregard for following the laws he swore to uphold. John Morris and Connolly deserve our collective disdain and the maximum punishment provided by the courts. But other feds should occupy the cells down the corridor from Connolly.

    He’s like my God father and you know nothing of the truth. As a very young girl I believe he saved my life many times.

      As a very young child, I believed in Santa Claus. When I grew up, I stopped believing in fantasies.

      Of course, my imaginary Santa Claus never shot an innocent man to death and then stuffed his body in the trunk of a car and left it to rot in an airport parking lot, in order to save his wretched criminal skin from justice.

        Until you know the entire story, the truthful one, you should zip it. I would be dead, I was a very young child & he looked after me due to parents that held no regard for me. Why would an evil man care for such a young girl and make sure she is safe? I love John like a father, most will never know the man I did.

          You’re full of shit. There are scumbags and there are scumbags and then there is John Connolly.

      To Robin. No one on this Earth is truly good or evil. We make choices and live our lives and sometimes they can be viewed one way or another. That said, I have family that are viewed with the highest regard. One is dead and people still mourn him. I remember him as a bully, lair, and cheat. His wife is unfortunately still polluting the air with her breath and she too is highly regarded in the community. I see her as utterly despicable. I have to live with the fact that despite how they interacted with my life, others around me would have a completely different opinion. It hurts actually but it’s given me a new perspective on things.
      I understand your pain that a man that is vilified in the public has been a positive force in your life. I have no doubt of that. I am happy for you that he was good in your life. I do believe he is guilty of the crimes he is accused of, or at the very least, corrupting his post and the trust of the public which comes with it. People are strange things.

    No mercy or pity for a crooked cop, and John Connolly is as dirty as they come.

    He betrayed his oath, he betrayed his comrades and he betrayed the people of the United States. Justice would have been hanging him by the neck until dead, but the next best thing is spending the rest of his miserable vile life locked in a small metal cage, knowing that he will never take another breath of air as a free man.

    Rot in Hell, John Connolly.
