9:32:33 PMBoston Marathon Bombing Suspect Featured On Cover Of Rolling Stone
BOSTON (CBS) – Rolling Stone is stirring up controversy with its new cover. The August issue of the music magazine features a photo of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover.
The magazine did a feature story on Tsarnaev with a headline of "The Bomber.”
According to Rolling Stone, the story, written by contributing editor Janet Reitman, delivers "a riveting and heartbreaking account of how a charming kid with a bright future became a monster.”
Rolling Stone put out the cover on its Facebook page and has already gotten hundreds of negative comments.
Dzhokhar, and his brother Tamerlan, allegedly put two bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in April. Three people were killed and hundreds were injured when the bombs detonated seconds apart.
Authorities also say the Tsarnaevs killed MIT police officer Sean Collier days after the bombings. Tamerlan died after a gunfight with police officers in Watertown.
Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to 30 federal charges including using a weapon of mass destruction to kill. He could get the death penalty if prosecutors choose to pursue it.
