Officer Donohue statement on ‘Rolling Stone’ cover

BOSTON (WHDH) — MBTA Officer Dic Donohue released a statement Wednesday on "Rolling Stone" magazine's decision to put Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover.

"The City of Boston and the surrounding communities have faced many challenges since the bombings at the marathon finish line. The new cover of Rolling Stone has garnered much attention due to its sensationalized depiction of one of the alleged bombers. My family and I were personally affected by these individuals’ actions. I cannot and do not condone the cover of the magazine, which is thoughtless at best. However, I appreciate our country’s protection of free speech afforded to us by the Constitution. I am confident that our Boston Strong community will remain intrepid and unshaken by the cover of this magazine."

Donohue was injured during the shootout in Watertown days following the bombings at the marathon.
