    No....not blame. Reasons. Sequences of events. The question is, how did this happen? I'm sure there is blame in failed by his family but not in falling into Islam or becoming a Monster.

    Someone's family can fail them and it doesn't mean they are not responsible at all for their own choices after that. But it absolutely contributes.

    I can't say I'm pleased. I think this is giving him what he wanted.

    I know why the did it and I think it's crappy.

    I don't have any issue at all with the article content, or the headline on the front...i guess the big picture does kind of bother me. I would fear that it could give people more of a reason to act out in similar manners. I think socially speaking, as little attention as possible should be given to people like him, which could be an argument to not do the article at all. But i think there is valuable knowledge to be gained by the general public on how these things happen. I don't see what is gained by the fancy picture on the front. (Well i see what Rolling Stone gains from a business perspective, but for something like this, i think there needs to be more reason than that)

    Falling indicates a hole was there that he fell into. Not that he climbed down into.
    Becoming a Monster... alludes to me anyway to monsters like Frankenstien's who was created.

    I'm horrified that Rolling Stone would choose him for their cover. To me that seems like such a slap in the face to those who were injured/killed. I'm also in the camp that believes individuals who commit unthinkable crimes should not be glamorized or turned into celebrities.

    This list is growing. Walmart and a bunch of other stores have also said they will not sell them.

    I agree with this. I'm not in an outrage about it but I would be concerned that others (with screwed up thinking) would want to do something similar to achieve this type of notoriety.

    WOW, Walmart is doing something RIGHT for once, instead of what will make them the most money? I almost fell out of my chair.

    I don't believe censorship is ever the right thing but it doesn't surprise me that Walmart is jumping on the bandwagon, they've done it before, they'll do it again when something else comes up they don't like.

    Boston Magazine posted photos of Tsarnaev's arrest -- all dirty & bloody, with a sniper's laser beam on his forehead -- that were given to them by a cop who was there. That cop might be fired for doing that, but I applaud him for showing us the other side of the story.

    My memory is failing me at the moment. Was Tsarnaev already tried and found guilty? Did he confess? I am not saying that he is innocent, but neither do I think the other set of pictures were appropriate either.
