Well, frankly, I take issue with him being a bomber at all. I think the whole story is bull puckey. How is that? And to see that picture and the bi-line on the cover of Rolling Stone gives me pause.
I always have trusted Rolling Stone as an alternative media outlet. But, they are running with the OS???
Man, has every freaking independent outlet for news been co-opted by the man??
What's next?? The Nation, OPED news, Mother Jones??? Is there any bastion of the Fourth Column left??? No, I don't think so. That is why Michael Hastings was murdered.
So you realize how f$#%@ed we are???
Our hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and our thoughts are always with them and their families. The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone’s long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens. –THE EDITORS

In 2012 Obama was on the cover of TIME as 'man of the year'.
Now this guy on Rolling Stones.
Ask yourself who's responsible for more deaths the former or the latter.
Somehow Rolling Stone's doesn't look so bad anymore does it.

I think it's a brilliant cover concept that draws stark attention to the issue -- someone who looks happy, reasonably good-looking, and perhaps even personable in his body-language somehow got drawn in a direction none could imagine based on appearances.
A Massachusetts State Police officer has released never-before-seen photos of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, which show him bloodied and bruised as sniper teams take aim at his head. Sgt. Sean Murphy, a tactical photographer with the state police, handed over the photos to Boston Magazine on Thursday. He released them because he was furious with Rolling Stone for running the now-infamous cover photo of Tsarnaev that many say glamorizes the Boston bombing suspect. He told the magazine that he wanted to counter the message he says Rolling Stone conveys.
