An investigation under way into the leak of pictures that show the moments one of the accused Boston bombers.
Surrendered to police you can see a bloody -- cars are -- -- -- here.
On top of that boat in the backyard of Watertown Massachusetts.
Emerging from under the TARP -- that boat where he was hiding at the time in a red laser -- of the snipers weapon trained on his forehead.
That's a far cry from this controversial magazine cover that's an image that critics say portrays the accused terrorist as a rock star.
Massachusetts state police officer Sargent John Murphy leaked the photos which he himself took on the capture seen on the night of April 19.
Sergeant Murphy released a statement region's long went to quoting now.
As a professional law enforcement officer of 45 years I believe that the image that was portrayed by Rolling Stone magazine.
Was an insult to any person who has ever worn a uniform of any color.
Or any police organization -- military branch and the family members who have ever lost a loved one serving in the line of duty.
The truth is that glamorizing the face of terror.
Is not just insulting to the family members of those killed in the line of duty.
It also could be an incentive to those who may be unstable to do something to get their face on the cover.
Of Rolling Stone magazine.
Reaction now from Boston Joseph when -- enough for the Boston Herald and Joseph good morning to you.
Wanna go why did this officer do this.
People are upset -- beyond upset they say wounds have been ripped open again by the Rolling Stone.
So that it's just today literally.
As he said he just couldn't see that cover anymore so he said take a look at this.
This is the picture you should be looking at what he says I think in this.
Letters that don't remember the image on the magazine you know remember the night we -- -- -- guy was out for terror.
He continues now these were real people with real lives with real families he writes and to have this -- dropped in the Boston was hurtful to the memories.
And their families.
I know from firsthand conversations that this Rolling Stone cover has kept many of them up again.
It's irritated the wounds that will never heal again.
There is nothing glamorous -- bringing more pain you're grieving family I think what people need to remember is that Murphy he goes to the funerals.
Of those who were killed in the line of duty for him this is intensely.
Yes it is and -- -- call his brother Andrew spoke to us last night at the Harold and he said he defends the sergeant.
He says he's been a great guy he's helped us through this he took photos -- John's funeral where every police officer and New England showed up for an MIT.
I mean this this really did rip open old wounds victims' families -- congress that can't sleep again.
That this that Rolling -- decades doesn't understand he's not.
Jim Morrison and he's he's -- and accused.
Killer that Murphy is the one who who meets with the families of the fallen -- -- he he acts as the liaison to ease their pain as they go through life.
He's you have to remember they lost two officers journal that's too.
The companies now I think we have fourteen companies.
I think that's the list right now that's boycotting the sale this magazine and who knows.
If they continue to refuse to stock the magazine on their shelves.
Has this in essence.
Backfired when the magazine probably did this in the end as a business decision to draw attention to respect.
It's backfired in Boston -- tell -- that has backfired it's is banned it's it's.
You know people are not going to pick this up and I believe bill that that it didn't work and I don't know how the rest of the nation is feeling this.
But Boston is still healing Boston has been hit with -- hired.
In the end it's not over me people are now getting their respects to meet people who lost limbs still being fitted they having trouble.
Getting fitted the one fund has rolled out and it's helped but it's helping then all of a sudden you wake up in the Rolling Stone.
As a slap in the face so.
It's it's I think the -- it's -- is going to plummet.
In the Boston area while Murphy does he pay a price for this -- wasn't authorized to -- them out.
Right he's he's suspended for one day I don't think he'll be -- that's just my opinion.
The US attorney's office is not happy they haven't you know big case in front of them yet.
I don't think he'll be five but he will pay a price but at least he stood up for what you believe that.
Some people may consider him a hero but he felt the need to counter the message on the magazine.
You think it's worked for him.
I think it worked -- last night when this broke rules with like wildfire it's it's an amazing photo.
You know could you put the photo out just to everybody that might have that might have been a -- been a little bit better move but still.
The laser dot on -- cars forehead.
Some of the other photos lifting up assured the show I'm not wearing a you know I -- I Obama best.
Bomb that's what I got from that photo so that this is real deal this is not a social media floppy haired photo.
This is the real deal this is what went down that day while people will locked inside and no one knew just how bad this was going to be.
The real deal -- blood on his face to this is the real Boston bomber Murphy writes not someone fluff and buff with a cover of Rolling Stone.
Magazine Joseph thank you we're gonna -- the fallout from your city and Boston.
