Mobster's girlfriend pleads not guilty to hiding Bulger

The longtime companion of notorious fugitive James "Whitey" Bulger pleaded not guilty in Boston Thursday to charges she harbored and concealed him, said a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

Catherine E. Greig, 60, who is being held without bail, allegedly assisted Bulger from January 1995 until June, when the pair was arrested in California, the U.S. attorney's office said in a statement last week.

"It is alleged that Greig conspired to take steps to prevent Bulger's discovery and arrest, after knowledge of the fact that a warrant had been issued for his apprehension," the office said.

Greig's attorney, Kevin Reddington, did not immediately return calls for comment Thursday.

    But officer, I woke up this morning, and lo and behold there he was hiding under my bed. He must have had a spare key to get into my apartment.

    Possible Flash Mob Hits Maryland 7-Eleven, Police Say ^ | August 15, 2011

    Posted on Monday, August 15, 2011 10:30:01 PM by Free ThinkerNY

    A pack of 30 teens helped themselves to items in a Maryland 7-Eleven early Sunday morning in what authorities have labeled another instance of a possible flash mob.

    The store, which is located in Germantown, Md., was empty at 2 a.m. Sunday morning when a group of teenagers calmly walked in and picked out items as though they were shopping. Then, just as calmly as they entered the store, police say, they exited without paying for the items.

    A surveillance video from the store obtained by shows a large group of teens taking candy and other snacks. They appear quiet during the incident and some appear to cover their faces with their shirts in an apparent attempt to avoid identification.

    ‚ÄúAs criminals go, they were pretty neat,‚ÄĚ Howard Hersh, a spokesman from the Montgomery County police. ‚ÄúThere were no injuries and they didn‚Äôt ransack the store.‚ÄĚ

    @gung hoe:

    The flash mob got it's start at Union Station in New York.
    Although if the flash mobs of today has the kind of service the guy in the commercial has, we wouldn't have to worry very much, would we? Lol!

    Not sure how much choice she had at the time, lol, but one would think after 16 years, she might have gotten the clue.
    Not guilty, my shiny metal ass.
