Letter: Glorifying murder
Re “They were right to challenge us” (Robert Azzi, Monitor Opinion page, July 27):
Rolling Stone is in deep trouble when it puts an accused murderer and maimer of people on its front page looking like a rock star.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is accused of responsibility for many deaths including little Martin Richard, who will not grow any older than 8 years because he was blown apart allegedly by a pea brain who came over here from Russia and went to school and got room and board on our dime and could think of no better way to say “thank you” than to try to figure ways to kill us. He and his brother both had twisted brains, egged on by their mother with a similar rotten brain.
Robert Azzi, you will never convince me of the rightness of this, because I don’t believe in glorifying murderers. I continue to cry for all the victims murdered by this evil-doer and all the brave people who lost limbs and will have to live out their lives as cripples. They are the ones who should be featured on the front page. They are the ones brave enough to get on with their lives. I love every one of them and respect and admire each and every one of them.
The only way I want to remember Tsarnaev is on the end of a rope with his neck stretched! He will always be the one who took away my innocent pleasure in the marathon.
He changed it from the Boston Marathon to the “Boston Massacre.”
