Outraged by the Rolling Stone cover this week, Massachusetts State Trooper Sean Murphy was suspended from his job for releasing the pictures he took the night that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested after his participation in the Boston Marathon bombing, according to the Washington Times;
Sgt. Sean Murphy provided photos to Boston Magazine on Thursday, to show what he characterized as the suspect’s more genuine personality — evil — rather than the celebrity shot published on Rolling Stone’s cover, Fox News reported.
Just a few hours later, Boston Magazine editor John Wolfson tweeted that the officer had been relieved of duty.
“Sgt. Sean Murphy relieved of duty. Post coming shortly,” he tweeted.
Personally, I think that Tsarnaev looks good with that laser dot on his forehead. I hope SGT Murphy comes out of this well, he provided a badly needed service that we really needed this week.
