However, Rolling Stone had to know it was going to rub people the wrong way.


Of course they did, which is why they did it. Free publicity.

It's more about publicity than journalism.

A kid with a backwards hat, a total of 12 facial hairs, and a backpack, and he all of the sudden looks like Al Qaeda to you?

I say the onus is on the reader to not be superficial and to actually read the contents of the article. Have you heard the expression, "don't judge a book by its cover"?


I agree with this and made the same point earlier. I do believe that this photo is in poor taste. It's used to get folks going.

I will also say that while I rarely get "outraged" by every little thing I find that there is plenty of common sense in Pimp's post.

From a professional perspective their article is pop psychology. Its amateurish and not even close to touching the dynamics that created or motivated this kid.

You remind me Nancy Grace right now.

By the way, you were so calm and reasonable during the Zimmerman trial. What changed? This guy hasn't been tried yet either. He deserves the same due process Zimmerman received, guilty or not.

Maybe. Personally, the cover didn't make see him as glamorous. He looks like almost every young man does. The dynamics that created or motivated him wouldn't be apparent from a photo that showed him in handcuffs either.

I was talking about the article being amateurish not the picture. I stated this clearly.

The Real Face of Terror: Behind the Scenes Photos of the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Manhunt
In response to the controversial Rolling Stone cover, new photos of Tsarnaev’s capture emerge.

By John Wolfson | Boston Daily | July 18, 2013

. . . . Murphy’s photos from that day have never been made public before, is the condition Tsarnaev was in at the time of his capture—and, indeed, exactly how he was captured. Murphy wants the world to know that the Tsarnaev in the photos he took that night—defeated and barely alive, with the red dots of sniper rifles lighting up his forehead—is the real face of terrorism, not the handsome, confident young man shown on the magazine cover. Following are a number of his photos from that day. A more complete collection will appear in our September issue.

Here, in his own words, Murphy shares his thoughts on the Rolling Stone cover. He stresses that he is speaking strictly for himself and not as a representative of the Massachusetts State Police:

"As a professional law-enforcement officer of 25 years, 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. The truth is that glamorizing the face of terror is not just insulting to the family members of those killed in the line of duty, it also could be an incentive to those who may be unstable to do something to get their face on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine."
