The leaked police photographs of the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, which show him just before his arrest, are way cooler than the photograph of him on the cover of "Rolling Stone" magazine, the general public has decided.
The photographs, which show a blood covered Tsaranev with a red sniper dot trained on his forehead, were leaked by a disgruntled police sergeant to try and counter the "cool" image and publicity generated by the "Rolling Stone" cover.
However, due to a 5000 year old misunderstanding between police and humans, he completely failed to realise the effect that leaking such photographs would actually have on people.
"I thought the "Rolling Stone" cover was nothing special," said Darren Smith, a student at Queen's University, Belfast. "I mean, it just made him look a bit like a shit Jim Morrison. But these new photos, I mean, holy crap! He has the dark clothing and he's covered in blood with a police sniper just ready to shoot him and he looks like a real badass motherfucker."
The new photographs have also earned Tsaranev a legion of female fans, who say they prefer this new "edgy bad boy" image to the clean and buffed version of him shown on the "Rolling Stone" cover. "Omg, he is just, like, so hot," said one indistinguishable female fan outside Tsaranev's holding cell. "Like, my boyfriend, Wayne, only beat up a few people and I used to think that was really awesome, but he's just a loser compared to this guy. Like, this guy seems to have killed a load of people and then been in a totally amazing shootout with police. He's just dreamy."
