In the wake of the backlash and controversy over Rolling Stone's August magazine cover featuring Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhohkar Tsarnaev, Boston Magazine has published photos from a photographer that shows behind-the-scenes images from the Tsarnaev manhunt.

See the pictures.

The pictures were taken by Sergeant Sean Murphy, a photographer with the Massachusetts State Police, who told Boston Magazine that he was furious with Rolling Stone's cover photo featuring the alleged bomber. Murphy said:

“As a professional law-enforcement officer of 25 years, I believe that the image that was portrayed by Rolling Stone magazine was an insult to any person who has every worn a uniform of any color or any police organization or 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."
