In response to Rolling Stone's controversial magazine cover, Sgt. Sean Murphy, a tactical photographer with the Massachusetts State Police, has released new and shocking photos revealing the “real” Boston bomber. In Boston Magazine's release, Sgt. Murphey argues:

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.

The Rolling Stone cover featured a photo of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that he had posted himself. He wears an edgy T-shirt and stares at the camera beneath a mess of wild, unkempt hair with a faintest hint of a smile between a mustache and goatee. One cannot help but notice he looks like a rocker or a celebrity.

In reponse, Murphy released several gritty photos of Tsarnev’s capture. In this photo, it looks like a sniper’s laser is trained directly on Tsarnev's face as he pulls up his shirt to show he’s unarmed.

Then there was also a photo released of the heroes who captured Tsarnev.
