Has Rolling Stone Magazine Gone Too Far?

Rolling Stone Cover Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Rolling Stone’s cover featuring Boston City Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has ignited a controversy due to the glamorous way the terrorist is portrayed resulting in a number of retail distributors refusing to carry the issue and a wave of public outrage at the immense disrespect demonstrated by the magazine.

What’s most disturbing about the cover, despite the obvious attempt to sexualize the bomber is the tag line:

“How a Popular, Promising Student Was Failed by His Family, Fell Into Radical Islam and Became a Monster.”

It’s fascinating that an iconic American magazine, albeit politically charged would intimate that the man responsible for 3 deaths and the injuries of 264 US citizens was a product of neglect and Islamic fundamentalist influence.

The cover smacks of millenialistic pandering and the real questions is how much is enough? How many excuses are we going to offer a generation that refuses to accept responsibility for anything?

Are we to believe that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev possessed zero concept of right and wrong, that throughout the planning process, the design and construction of weapons of mass destruction and the final execution of the horrific double bombing in Boston there wasn’t an inkling in the back of his mind that what he was doing was wrong, dangerous and permanent?

He was not misled, he was aware of what he was doing and chose to continue on that path. He was not failed by his family. He is a murderer and a terrorist.
