My Thoughts on the Rolling Stone cover
   Upon waking up this morning and hopping on the internet, I was surprised to find that virtually everyone I knew talking about the Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Rolling Stone cover. As a native of the Boston metropolitan area, I know several people that were effected by the tradgedy and am very familiar with the whole ordeal.
   So my next thought is: “What is the big fucking deal?” For starters, this very same photo was on the cover of the New York Times only a few months ago. The main problem that most people seem to be pointing to with the cover is that is glamorizes a killer. Which as virtually everyone knows, media has been doing for roughly forty years.
   Now CVS and Tedeschi are pulling the magazine off of their shelves. “Because it is disrespectful.” What’s disrespectful about an article presenting the bomber as a human being? He’s a fucking kid. Yeah he did an awful horrible thing, something that has caused people close to me a lot of mental pain but he is still a human being. America seems to want their news completely dictated to them. We don’t want our killers to have a backstory. We just want them to be angry blood thirsty monsters. It reminds me of Nietzsche’s idea of the abyss: if you stare into it long enough, it might stare back.
    Finally, and this is a big issue as well, Tsarnaev is attractive. He just is. This would be a total non-issue if Bin Laden were in the cover in the same clothes. Sorry, but not all murderers are unattractive. I heard a relative of mine call it a glamor shot. Sorry, but this isn’t quite a glamor shot, it’s just a photo that shows him as a young, attractive kid, which he was. The point being that even terrorists are people, which is the point isn’t it?
   Also, if you want to get into the specifics of glamor shots taken of killers? How about that Rolling Stone cover with a laughing Barack Obama? He’s responsible for some insanely criminal acts, and far more deaths than Tsarnaev.
