Marathon Bombing Suspect on Rolling Stone Cover

Comments: 2  | Leave A Comment

One of the marathon runners, Lauren Gabler, who works in IT consulting in Washington and was running her fourth Boston Marathon this year, said she at first thought the Rolling Stone photo was of a model or rock star and was surprised when she realized it was Tsarnaev.

“The cover almost tricks you into what you’re looking at,” she said.

She had finished the race well ahead of went the bombs went off hours into the race but was two blocks away headed to brunch when she heard and felt the explosions. She was not hurt.

“I haven’t read the article yet, and I know it will probably be quite in-depth, but my initial reaction is that the photo that’s being used almost makes him look like a good guy,” she said. “That’s the story line, but I think the public will have trouble, like me, making the association between here’s the Boston bomber and here’s the guy who appears to be cool on the cover of Rolling Stone.”

Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the bombings.

  1. I disagree with Roland Martin. I do believe the cover is offensive and disrespectful to the families of the victims of this horrible attack. What if George Zimmerman was on the cover? Would that be offensive and disrespectful? It sure would be to me. Fair is fair, and I think that dude needs no more limelight than what he has already received. Trayvon lost his life and also lost the battle in the courtroom. And to look at Zimmerman with that smirk on his face just disgusts me to no end; God help if they put him on the cover. m

  2. The same people who are so upset and agry about this cover, are probably the same people who applauded the Zimmerwoman not guily verdict.
