Facebook Helps Nab Boston Crime Boss Whitey Bulger
http://www.allfacebook.com/facebook-helps-nab-boston-cr...

The Federal Bureau of Investigation captured infamous Boston crime boss James Whitey Bulger thanks to a widespread publicity campaign that included Facebook.
Bulger, whose story was made famous by the Martin Scorcese film, The Departed, was nabbed in Santa Monica, Calif. along with his girlfriend Catherine Grieg a day after the communications effort kicked off.
Besides Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, the FBI used more traditional media such as billboards in Times Square and public service announcements in 14 cities.
With Osama bin Ladens death earlier this year, Bulgers arrest wipes two names off the FBIs Ten Most Wanted List.

1. Who shall we put on the list in their places?
Bush and Cheney? Boehner and Cantor?
