The FBI did the right thing by releasing photos of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects last year, even though it led to the death of an MIT police officer.

The Associated Press reports that Stephanie Douglas, an executive assistant director of the FBI’s Security Division, said law enforcement “really had no choice” but to release the photos of Dzhohkar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan.

While on the run, the brothers killed MIT Officer Sean Collier.

“Believe me, the death of Sean Collier is not lost on the FBI,” she said. “But I think at the end of the day, given the facts as we knew them at the time, we made the best decision.”
