Should have given him a medal.

A Massachusetts State Police photographer who released stark photos to a local magazine of the capture of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev reportedly has been relieved of duty.

Boston Magazine reported that Police Sgt. Sean Murphy was relieved of duty Thursday after he gave the magazine photos of Tsarnaev in response to a controversial image on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

When asked by The Associated Press about Murphy’s job status, State police spokesman David Procopio said in an email: “All I can say is that he is subject to an internal investigation.”

The photos show a downcast, disheveled Tsarnaev with the red dot of a sniper’s rifle laser sight boring into his forehead. They were taken when Tsarnaev was captured April 19, bleeding and hiding in a dry-docked boat in a Watertown backyard.
