Notorious gangster Whitey Bulger pens letter to high schoolers from federal prison

Whitey Bulger pens letter from prison urging students to go to law school
In a letter from prison to Massachusetts high-schoolers, Boston gangster Whitey Bulger copped to leading a “wasted” life — and told the students that if they really want to make money off crime, they should bone up for their LSATs.

“I know only one thing for sure: if you want to make crime pay — go to law school,” the 85-year-old former crime boss wrote to juniors at Apponequet Regional HS in Lakeville, according to the Boston Globe.

The students — Mollykate Rodenbush, Brittany Tainsh and Michaela Arguin — had written to him as part of a class project.

Bulger bared his regret in the Feb. 14 letter, handwritten from a federal penitentiary in Sumterville, Fla.

“My life was wasted and spent foolishly, brought shame + suffering on my parents and siblings and will end soon,” he wrote.

He spent 16 years on the lam before he was busted in 2011 in Santa Monica, Calif.
