I felt that this needed to be ranted about because I find it absolutely shocking, Massachusetts State Police photographer Sgt. Sean Murphy has been relieved of duty while being investigated over the leaked picture taken of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect moments before he was arrested. He leaked these photos to Boston Magazine in response to the Rolling Stone magazine cover.The photos that were leaked to Boston Magazine were a sign of outrage against the editors at Rolling Stone magazine after they decided they wanted to put the Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, on the cover of their upcoming issue. Sgt Murphy said in a statement to Boston Magazine that these photos show, “the real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.”
I’m sure that you have all seen the leaked photos, but I am going to share them with you as well, I personally think that with all the cover stories on this issue, Rolling Stone could have found a different picture to put on the cover besides the one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect. Choose Robin Thicke, Jay-Z or Willie Nelson not the man who killed four people and severely injured hundreds more in a very apparent terror attack on the Boston Marathon. I have always been a fan of Rolling Stone magazine, I had a subscription to it at one point, I would like to think that they are all smarter than this and maybe thought about this before they published it, but apparently not. It seems like the only thing they were thinking about is how to cause an uproar.
Do you think that this MSP officer should lose his job over showing the pictures that Rolling Stone should have chosen from for their magazine cover?
