After the highly criticized Rolling Stone cover shot of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was released, which some described as making him look like a teenage heart throb or celebrity, images have now been released of the "real Boston Bomber."
The photos were taken by the police photographer on the night of his capture, include one showing a bloody Tsarnaev laying on his back with a hand over his chest, as he was being arrested by police.
The pictures were released by Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Sean Murphy, who was "infuriated" at the Rolling Stone portrayal of Tsarnaev and called them "an insult" and "hurtful" to survivors of the April 15 bombings.
"This guy is evil," Murphy said. "This is the real Boston bomber. Not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine."
Murphy says "this is the face of terrorism and not the Rolling Stone cover"
Murphy has been relieved of duty for a day and will have a status hearing to determine whether he will be on full duty, restricted duty or suspended during an internal police investigation into his unauthorized release of these chilling new, never before seen photos.
