What gangster hopes to get out of trial

Author and Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen says Whitey Bulger wants to preserve his self-serving narrative as a "benevolent wise guy." Bulger is charged in the deaths of 19 people.

Week two of the dramatic trial began with former hitman John Martorano testifying against Bulger, who was his close friend and partner in crime. The mobster told the court it broke his heart when he discovered Bulger was an FBI informant. He described in detail some of the murders he committed, which he says Bulger also plotted and participated in.

Cullen weighs in on Martorano's credibility as a witness and how Bulger reacted in the courtroom on Monday.
