Alleged victims' families attend Bulger hearing


The families of victims allegedly killed at the hands of James "Whitey" Bulger have had their first look at the longtime fugitive gangster.

The families took up two rows of seats inside the courtroom where Bulger made his first court appearance on Friday in Boston.

Dorchester resident Patricia Donahue says the man who allegedly killed her husband in 1982 appeared "meek."  Her son Tommy called Bulger a "scumbag."

Michael Donahue was not targeted, but happened to be giving a ride to Bulger's target. His widow has also filed a civil suit against Bulger.

An attorney for the family of Quincy fisherman John McIntyre says his relatives never thought they'd see Bulger in court.

The 32-year-old McIntyre was killed in 1984 after being tortured for hours.
