'Whitey' The Kid 06:35

This article is more than 8 years old.

We have known since the 1990s that James “Whitey” Bulger was a secret FBI informant going back to the '70s. But newly obtained government documents show that Bulger started snitching on fellow criminals as early as the 1950s.

WBUR's David Boeri joins Radio Boston to talk about the discovery of the documents and what it says about Bulger as a kid in the 1950s.
