Graphic new photos of Boston Bombing Suspect

A day after Rolling Stone released the controversial cover of the Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, which caused national outrage and boycotts - the Boston Police department is countering with new images of what Boston Magazine calls the Real Face of Terror.

Photos of Tsarnaev arrest follow Rolling Stone complaints

In this picture taken back on April 19th, Tsarnaev is standing in a boat with the red dot of a sniper rifle on his forehead.

Are these pictures a more accurate portrayal of the terror suspect?

OutFront tonight: Comedian Dean Obeidallah, Radio Show Host and Comedian Stephanie Miller and CNN Contributor Reihan Salam.

    CNN...Get over it already. The photo goes with the article. Read the headline to the article. It's a story about a promising student who turns into a terrorist Monster. They're not glamorizing a Terrorist. They're selling a magazine. Why is it alright for you to do the same thing? You're practically causing a national race riot with your constant coverage of the George Zimmerman trial and now that the trial is over, you still won't let it go. Why...because it's all about ratings. Sensationalism sells. Hypocrisy at its finest.
