Furious with the controversial Rolling Stone cover this month featuring Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a photographer for the Massachusetts State Police released bloody photos of the bomber and RadarOnline.com has the graphic pictures.
The incredible new images were taken by the tactical photographer when Dzhokhar was captured.
“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,” Murphy told Boston Magazine.
“…What Rolling Stone did was wrong. This guy is evil. This is the real Boston bomber. Not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.”
Boston Magazine tweeted out the photos saying:

“I hope that the people who see these images will know that this was real. It was as real as it gets. This may have played out as a television show, but this was not a television show. Officer Dick Donohue almost gave his life. Officer Sean Collier did give his life. These were real people, with real lives, with real families,” Murphy told the mag.
“And to have this cover dropped into Boston was hurtful to their memories and their families. I know from first-hand conversations that thisRolling Stone cover has kept many of them up—again. It’s irritated the wounds that will never heal—again. There is nothing glamorous in bringing more pain to a grieving family.”
