DZHOKHAR-TSARNAEV-900

*The Massachusetts State Police officer who released arrest photos of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, showing him bloodied and bruised, has reportedly been relieved of duty, but not been fired.

Boston Magazine editor John Wolfson tweeted that tactical photographer Sgt. Sean Murphy, who gave photos to Boston Magazine on Thursday, has been relieved of duty, but not yet fired, and has been ordered not to speak to media about the Watertown events.

Sgt. Murphy said he gave the photos to Boston Magazine on Thursday because he was furious with Rolling Stone for running the now-infamous cover photo of Tsarnaev that many say glamorizes the Boston bombing suspect.

Murphy told the magazine that he wanted to counter the message he says Rolling Stone conveys.
