Police manhunt pix of Boston bombs suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev sends harsh message to rock mag idolatry.
Furious with the controversial Rolling Stone cover this month featuring Boston bomber Dzhokar (pronounced Jah-kar or Joker), a photographer for the Massachusetts State Police released bloody photos of the bomber during the explosive televised manhunt.
Sergeant Sean Murphy gave the photos to Boston Magazine to show “the real face of terror."
The incredible new images were taken by the tactical photographer when Dzhokhar was captured by law enforcement.
“I believe that the image that was portrayed by Rolling Stone magazine was an insult to any person who has every worn a uniform of any color or any police organization or military branch, and the family members who have ever lost a loved one serving in the line of duty,” Murphy told Boston Magazine.
“What Rolling Stone did was wrong. This guy is evil. This is the real Boston bomber. Not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.”
In other words, not a David Cassidy Tiger Beat pinup nor a Steve Miller Joker “gangster of love” #maurice BUT the real deal – a cowardly vermin caught in the crosshairs of justice.
UPDATE: In a statement, a State Police spokesman said, “the dissemination to Boston Magazine of photographs of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev and police activity related to his capture was not authorized by the Massachusetts State Police.”
Sgt. Murphy has been “relieved of his duty for one day” and is the subject of an internal investigation, according to Dave Procopio of the State Police.
