Jim Polito on Whitey Bulger, Freddy Geas, & the Springfield Mob

The names of two Massachusetts criminals have made national news in the past week: Boston Mobster Whitey Bulger and West Springfield native Fotios “Freddy” Geas. Both Bulger and Geas were in prison for years, on unrelated charges. Bulger was killed shortly after being transferred to U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton in West Virginia, where Geas is being held. Some news outlets, including The Boston Globe and Springfield Republican, report that Geas is suspected in Bulger’s murder. WHYN radio’s Jim Polito was an investigative reporter covering organized crime in Springfield during the early 2000s. He joined Carrie Saldo in the studio to offer a window into the world of Freddy Geas and the Mob.
