It was likely the most terrifying manhunt in Boston history. With the city under lockdown and armored vehicles rolling through Watertown, the alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had seemingly vanished. While the rest of Greater Boston experienced the unfolding dragnet on April 19 as a series of indirect glimpses, Sergeant Sean Murphy, in his assignment as a tactical photographer with the Massachusetts State Police, was behind police lines, documenting the days events. Months later, Murphy walked into our offices and told us he was furious with the way Tsarnaev was being portrayed on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. He turned over a number of his photos to us because, he said, the suspect in the pictures he took that night was the actual face of terrorism, not the fluffed and buffed image on the Rolling Stone cover.

So is this huge success enough to propel DeVal Patrick (aka Baraq Jr) to Hillary’s VP slot?
Door-to-door searches by jack booted thugs, and the pipsqueak perp was located by a homeowner after finally given permission to exit his home.
Especially since Russia told us repeatedly to watch those Tsarnaevs.
So, the idea that there ever was a Boston Marathon Bombing is impossible.
Bless our Overlords, the NSA!!!
What a pathetic display of "tactical" police work in pictures.
The city of Boston was NOT under a lock down. You could drive and walk wherever you wanted . I was walking around the city with a black backpack with my tools , PC and not a single cop botheted me. Most people used it as a day off.
The snapshots are not at all compelling; they don’t tell any sort of story. There’s no sense of composition. They’re poorly focused half the time. It looks like they bought him a new lens and he couldn’t figure out how to take it off f/1.8. A least he didn’t shoot a dog. :-p
The story shortly after was that BHO had to call Coupe to tell him not to go on a short vacation to his Western MA mansion while he had the area on lock-down.
Tactical photographer.....it’s not usually a trained photographer. Usually the guy with his own equipment, who used to shoot for the yearbook.
