He Took Cues from

Boston Bomber
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a big fan of "Breaking Bad" ... praising the show for teaching him how to dispose of corpses.

Since his capture Friday ... a lot of information is surfacing about the 19-year-old Chechan college student who helped mastermind a deadly attack on the Boston Marathon and led police on a massive manhunt.

Turns out Dzhokhar was a fan of violent TV shows ... in particular "Game of Thrones" and "Breaking Bad."

He tweeted earlier this year ... "Breaking Bad taught me how to dispose of a corpse."

As TMZ previously reported, his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan -- who was killed by cops during the manhunt -- was deep into hip hop.

Dzhokhar remains in police custody, in serious condition and unable to speak.

TMZ please stop trying to LINK things to them... TV shows and hip hop DIDN'T make them what they were/are. Stop. Just.... stop.

.....I also like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. Does that make me a terrorist? Stop trying to blame this crap on television and movies. Anything left wing sites like TMZ can do to save the sacred name of Islam, I swear.....

Tmz really does need to just stick to celebrity news. They're making themselves look dumb as **** with serious news like this. Leave this to CNN and msnbc

His brother was deep in hip hop. Explain the relevance of that. I don't know any hip hop artist that has told anyone to go set off bombs in a crowd. Stop trying to create a story on this one. you look real bad on this one Harvey!

Being from Boston and having a husband deeply involved with the investigation (FBI), I can tell you that you guys are simply comical. I showed my husband your stories, and he and his guys laughed at how far-fetched and how bad of a reach all of this is. If you read the kids twitter, he actually says he can't stand Game of Thrones... and as for Breaking Bad, about 10,000 kids tweeted similar things after the episodes involving body disposals. The hip-hop account is actually not true either. Those close to the older brother said he had a large range of music taste, and none were aware hip-hop was even close to his favorite. I understand you guys want to be ahead of the game with top stories, but you look foolish at this point. You should just go ahead and change your name to New York Post or CNN with these types of stories.

Time to publicly identify every member of the craft team that was there. We also need to identify the old guy holding the bag which matches the exploded bag and the Saudi who was released.


Nope, wrong he took his cues from the fbi who set him up. Why were the craft operatives there? Internet detectives need to publicly identify the following

ALL CRAFT OPERATIVES at the marathon (3 have already been id. Same three were "police officers" during sandy hook..odd.

Old guy in blue&red shirt holding what looks like the exploded book bag

Saudi national who was released on "national security" grounds

Naked guy who was arrested, first claimed to be suspect one

Any others?

This guy is an idiot. Now he is going to miss the Season 5 finale.

Honestly, don't blame a TV show for what this monster has done. There are 5 million people who watch the show and most of whom are fine. The Hip Hop analogy is stupid. The person committed the crime not the show.
