As a 14-year-old fan of rock 'n' roll, I am appalled that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Why is an alleged international terrorist, who is accused of assisting in murdering three people and horribly injuring some 300 others, receiving “rock star” status?

Why not feature real rock stars like the Dropkick Murphys, who, to date, have raised more than $300,000 to support the victims of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing?

Better yet, why not feature one of the many first responders, like a firefighter, police officer or paramedic, who acted so heroically to help others during this catastrophe?

I, for one, will be joining the many individuals and companies boycotting Rolling Stone!
