If the image of the bomber is at odds with the mainstream definition of how a terrorist "should look like" then that definition should be challenged because they can take any shape or form.

Excellent point you made here. I noticed that the image on the cover was being compared to the likes of Bob Dylan's cover photo. The only reason they were even comparing his image to the bomber, was because they had a similar hairstyle in my opinion. Who he looks like in his picture should not matter whatsoever, regardless of how, where or it when it was taken. Yet somehow it did... and still made the news.

it's the old thing of "bad publicity is also publicity"....everybody talks about this "scandal", and this'll probably help them sell this issue pretty well.
But stuff like that happens all the time, and it's not that they're glorifying what he did or make a kind of pop star out of him. Didn't the ROLLING STONE also feature Charles Manson on his cover once?
Also, for example, the german magazine "der Spiegel" features Hitler on the front page every second issue or so. Bad guys just seem to draw the buyers...

Slow month in music?
Slow decade really.

Unless ya got Bieber fever.  I'd rather see Tsarnaev on the cover given a choice between the two.

If they'd have used a different picture I think maybe I'd feel different. They should have used a picture of him post-capture when he's all f'd up because that's what happens to these idiots. Instead, they want to make him look mysterious and cool. Oh it's so Rolling Stones age group can identify and understand. Whatever. That's like putting Bin Laden on the cover of GQ.

My opinions aren't effected by how someone looks in a photograph.    I haven't read the article...  is it informative?

So you guys have already convicted him? Even with all the strange things surrounding this case?

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

I can't believe they did that! They didn't get a good enough closeup when they made that picture! And don't get me started on the light and shadow! Looks like a part of him is about to merge into the background.

Pathetic! Just pathetic!

For the people who were maimed on that terrible day in Boston, as well as the family members who lost a loved one on that day, doing what Rolling Stone did just makes it worse for them.  It fuels the fire.

What all individuals went through and are currently going through is hard enough.

Trauma therapists call something like this Secondary Wounding Experiences, which can sometimes be almost as upsetting as the original trauma.

‘THIS IS THE REAL BOSTON BOMBER’: POLICE PHOTOGRAPHER FIRES BACK AT ROLLING STONE COVER WITH NEW PHOTOS OF BLOODY TSARNAEV

Boston Magazine has responded to Rolling Stone’s controversial new cover giving accused marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the glam rock star treatment with incredible new photos of his capture.

This Tsarnaev — bloody and in the fixed beam of a sniper rifle — is “the real face of terror,” the magazine said: “In response to the controversial Rolling Stone cover, new photos of Tsarnaev’s capture emerge.”

The pics... http://www.theblaze....loody-tsarnaev/

No problem BM. You know why I spell my name that way? I get sick pleasure making people go out of their way to hit the 3 instead of a simple and more natural feeling of hitting the E. It's a 50/50 shot who plays my game or not.

I'm just kidding. That was never my intention. It's about Internet anonymity and I'm completely witless when it comes to creating a screen name so I decided just to use my real name, almost. A search for my real name will bring few results, no Facebook here. Anyways, I just said all that because I have noticed that some people will take the lazy route and some people go for accuracy. You ma'am are a keyboard perfectionist and I bet you just don't feel right if you don't type it as you see it. A poster here used to go by Spyd3r and I too felt compelled to spell it as he did instead of spider.
