As the AP reports, Bulger didn't stay on topic. Instead he ranted how crime ruined his life and brought shame on his family. He summed all that in this bit of advice: "If you want to make crime pay go to law school.
Actually, becoming a lawyer can make crime more convenient. Just consider the late Will Gardner from "The Good Wife." Because he had easy access to client funds, he "borrowed" from them to pay off his gambling debts. His behavior is all too typical.
Overall it's been a lousy few days for criminals. Escaped con Richard Matt was gunned down by police and killed. His buddy David Sweat was also shot while being captured and is in serious condition. Maybe Bulger is on the money: Crime doesn't pay.
