For reasons I do not understand, Rolling Stone magazine decided to put an image of the Boston Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the front cover of their latest issue. Now an officer of the Massachusetts State Police, Sgt. Sean Murphy, a tactical photographer, is in trouble for providing images to the Boston Magazine showing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev during his capture. The most striking image released so far in my opinion is the one below.

Once the manhunt was over and Dzhokhar was in police custody, the EMT assigned to the SWAT Team attended to the wounds Dzhokhar received in a shootout with police. This is a prime example of how our Police Officers are willing to set aside their emotions concerning a situation and lend aid even to a killer (I know, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is presumed innocent until proven guilty).

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, along with his brother Tamerlan, set out to kill and injure as many people as possible. Where were they when innocent people lay bleeding and dying on the sidewalks of Boston?

Dzhokhar and Tamerlan had no problem with killing Officer Sean Collier and injuring Officer Dick Donohue. Did either of them stop to offer aid to the fallen officers?

Why Rolling Stone magazine would decide to put Dzhokhar Tsarvaev on the cover of their magazine is beyond comprehension. From my perspective this just flies in the face of the Police Officers who serve and protect the citizens of not only Boston, but the town where you live. They are trained to save lives, even the life of a killer.
