That's a lot of butthurt. I wonder if submitter was the Police Sergeant who got fired for violating department policy and pretending to be the PIO for a major incident.

I love how ever single photo of the bomber, you can clearly make out the laser dot on his head.

And not just like a tiny little dot, its obvious there is at least a dozen pointed at his head

Maybe because that cop had a camera in his hands and not his gun

Yeah, clear breakdown of procedure and he should have seen this coming a mile away.

I still don't understand how the Rolling Stone glamourizes him. Every time I see him, no matter how he looks, I immediately think "Farking asshole terrorist who is going away for a long long time".

But hey, I guess if this is the worst thing people are getting outraged about, maybe we live in a pretty good society with no real problems.

/Just kidding, of course we have real problems.

A State Police sergeant, incensed by the controversial Rolling Stone magazine cover...

Well, there's your problem right there Mr. Sergeant Cop. You get really angry over trivial, meaningless shiat. This is what happens when you can't control your emotions like a normal person and worry too much about stupid things that don't actually matter.

In other words, it this shiat again:

It's called "chain of command" and apparently this sergeant had never heard of it.
 
2013-07-19 10:14:33 AM  
So that's what it takes to get a cop fired.
 
2013-07-19 10:15:30 AM  
umm.. how are those photos shocking or anything?  its like two pics of a kid from a very far distance away that you cant really tell anything other then he is apparently Hindu and his third eye glows in the dark.

The butthurt initiated from the US Attorney's Office, which means anyone from the Commonwealth level (State Police or politicians) are going to have zero impact on getting this guy reinstated.

Fox News is going to go into full Nancy Grace orgasm mode in the days to come.

Oh goodness, what a dreamboat of a man.

I doubt that fact that he was accompanied by a paramilitary police force had anything to do with it.
 
2013-07-19 10:22:16 AM  
He was "relieved of duty for one day".

Sounds more like an atta-boy than an actual punishment.

Publikwerks: I love how ever single photo of the bomber, you can clearly make out the laser dot on his head.


And that's just the snipers.  Had he reached for something, I have no doubt he'd have well over 100 bullets in him.
 
2013-07-19 10:23:03 AM  
Well, can you blame him??? Someone had to right the terrible wrong that Rolling Stone has committed.

A State Police spokesman said Thursday night that Murphy had been relieved of duty for one day and will be subject to an internal investigation. "His duty status will be determined at a hearing in the near future," said spokesman David Procopio.

"Relieved of duty" for one day, on a Friday. He was probably ordered to turn in his gun and badge and pick up a fishing rod and a case of beer.

More important question though... Remember, for several days, Tsarnev couldn't talk because he had been shot in the throat?
c.o0bc.comDon't most people who get shot in the throat bleed a bit from the throat?

Either he's a vampire, or they shot him after he was in custody.

Dude it's one picture. The other ones that were released show half his head covered in blood. He was laying on his left side, and in this picture that side is obscured by a shadow

In the court room his jaw was wired, he could have gotten a glancing round in the teeth on his left side which wouldn't show in that pic

Being "brave" is a small consolation when my taxes have to pay his medical records when he takes a bullet in the line of duty because he couldn't put down the Nikon.

As a Bostonian I wanted to know every goddamned armed person on that scene had their gun drawn and was ready to pull the trigger if he was wired to blow or put another person in danger....not document it for "posterity."  He's a farking cop....not Ansel Adams.  We pay him to do a job that does NOT involve taking pics.

Or you know, that you can only see half of his neck and there are other pictures of him showing the gash on neck. But don't worry, I'm sure that won't hurt your police beating sexual fantasies.

It's also 100 degrees out, which means his punishment might mean "not standing at the BU Bridge rotary for 8 hours directing traffic"

Theaetetus: Don't most people who get shot in the throat bleed a bit from the throat?


Depends on where they were shot. But most people with throat injuries that can compromise the trachea do end up getting intubated prophylactically. And those pieces of plastic do interfere with talking.

He's also wearing a black shirt that covers his neck, and is angling his chin downwards. Which makes it hard to see.

MithrandirBooga: I still don't understand how the Rolling Stone glamourizes him.


Because American media has become so over-saturated with "analysts", pundits and other mostly useless talking heads that we're so accustomed to our "news" being presented in an opinion format that these sorts of things simply can no longer be viewed objectively by a large number of people.

There's nothing inherently wrong with the cover. It's a picture of Tsarnaev that he took and posted. It has been posted elsewhere. But because it's not tinted to make him look evil or doesn't have some negative slur plastered over it in huge font people are "outraged". If it doesn't make a bad man look bad, the "thinking" goes, it must mean it makes him look good because god knows it can't just be an objective image of a person as he appeared before we became aware of him.

The ridiculous poutrage over the Rolling Stone cover is an incredibly sad commentary on just how farked up most of this country has become when it comes to social and political news. There is no neutral position for facts in our media anymore. It really is the "with us or against us" mentality as applied to objective reporting and it's actually kind of scary.

Not sure whats wrong with fantasizing about the police beating this guy.  pretty sure its a common fantasy.

I didn't really care about this whole outrage but a radio guy this morning made a good point, the other recent mass killers (Aurora theater, Sandy Hook) actually killed more people but they were never on the cover of Rolling Stone. Typically artists and actors are on the cover, a almost hero worship. Why does this kid get that treatment? Take away the headline and he looks like he's in an indie band. It just seems really odd that they'd choose to do so.

From what I hear though, the article is well written. I f*cking hate Rolling Stone so I'm holding my judgment until I read it myself.

HotWingConspiracy: Yeah, there were dozens of them, they had it covered. Have you considered photo evidence might be useful down the road?


That's not the issue. The issue is he released material pertaining to an active investigation to the media and public without getting department permission or running it by the assigned Public Information Officer for that incident, which he was not authorized to release.

What if it was not the Boston Bomber, but a person completely innocent?

You don't freelance on a major incident, and you don't release information unless you're the designated media contact for that, or you have permission of someone high on the command chain.

[Citation needed]. The only ones I've seen are after he was in custody, which doesn't contradict what I hypothesized above.

It's mainly a media slap fight from what I can tell. Though I await the announcement of a "you hurt our feelings" lawsuit from the victims.

Yes because obviously the 300 bullets from the other hundred people with trained guns trained on him wouldn't had been enough

Had he tried anything, he would have been reduced to a bloody lead filled mush of flesh

You should read it, then the cover makes sense. It's a well written article about how a lone kid with all the blessings in the world has the rug pulled out from underneath him and his descent into extremism and paints a perfect picture on how easy it is for these groups to recruit disaffected youth towards their ill causes.

Yes. He was shot after the police arrested him. That's why no one but random people on the internet have been saying that. Not his lawyer. Not him. Not anything.

See that green thing? That's an israeli trauma bandage. It's used for gunshot injuries. It's also being applied to the side of his neck obscured by the shadow and shirt in your picture.
