Police Photographer Disciplined For Releasing Alleged Boston Bomber Pictures


FRAMINGHAM, Mass.- A Massachusetts state police photographer who released photos showing the apprehension of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been placed on restricted duty.

Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio says the agency didn’t authorize Sgt. Sean Murphy to release the photos to Boston Magazine and will not release them to other media.

Murphy told Boston Magazine he was furious over a Rolling Stone cover photo he believes glamorizes suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. He says his photos show “the real Boston bomber.”
