Massachusetts residents are reacting with outrage Wednesday after "Rolling Stone" magazine decided to put one of the alleged Boston Marathon bombing suspects on the cover.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been given the coveted spot on the cover of the August issue of Rolling Stone.

Inside the issue, "Rolling Stone" uncovers new details about the night Tsarnaev was captured. As he was hiding in the boat in Watertown, police negotiators told him his old wrestling coach had made a public plea for him to surrender. Police said reminding him of his old life was what convinced him to surrender.

The magazine reports Dzhokhar once hinted that the thought the 9/11 attacks could be justified. He allegedly told a friend who wanted to meet older brother, Tamerlan, "No, You don't want to meet him."

Rolling Stone claims Tamerlan Tsarnaev once told his mother he felt like there were "two people" inside him. She believed religion would cure him.

Some local residents vowed to stop reading the magazine.

"That's so strange. You do something horrible and there's fame?" one resident said.

"I was there that day, and my son still talks about the horror the two bombs, the blood. All I want is justice," another resident said.
