The state trooper who released behind-the-scenes photos of the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is in trouble with his superiors. The U.S. Attorney’s office says releasing the pictures was completely unacceptable, causing the State Police to suspend him for one day. Officials say he’s also the subject of an internal police investigation. The photos show the suspect covered in blood with a sniper’s laser bead on his forehead.
