(WHDH) On the cover of "Rolling Stone" magazine is an image of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev looking more like a rock star than an alleged terrorist.

In the lower right-hand corner the cover reads: "The Bomber" followed by "How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster". The article includes interviews with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's high school and college friends, some teachers and neighbors who knew him.

It's not the story that has many outraged; it's the way he is portrayed on the cover.

"They're trying to make him look like a rock star and he's a horrible person that did a horrible thing," said Rachel Carfarella, who hates the magazine cover.
