Whoa: Police photog who released Tsarnaev manhunt photos relieved of duty

As Twitchy reported, a tactical photographer for the Massachusetts State Police was so outraged by Rolling Stone’s rock star cover of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that he decided to release some behind-the-scenes photos giving a more accurate picture of the Boston Marathon bomber’s final moments before his capture. He also gave a statement to Boston Magazine, stressing that he was speaking only for himself and not as a representative of the police department.

The photos were a hit, overloading the website, but the move has led to Sgt. Sean Murphy being relieved of duty, says Boston Magazine editor John Wolfson.
