Boston Bomber

He Took Cues from

'Breaking Bad'

4/21/2013 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

I guess TMZ has pretty much lost all credible celebrity sources because of their Kardashian allegiance so now they are reduced to silly speculative stories about non-issues. Unless this POS terrorist was interest in making meth or wanting to know how dwarves get p*ssy, it would seem these shows and their relevance to the Boston bombings is ZIP.

And you keep bringing up the hip hop thing. Hip hop doesn't make you kill. People make the decision to kill and people know right from wrong.

One of the worst aspects of this crime is how easy the people of Boston surrendered their Constitutional rights. The city was basically placed under Martial law and no one challenged this, yet alone has brought this topic to the national forefront. Add the fact that the police conducted door to door searches is a clear violation of every Americans Constitutional rights. People should have been walking around with video cameras recording exactly what was going on.

Sad day for America and Im sure theres more bad news to come once politicians try to ban everything while having tsa shove their hands down your pants in public places. Remember this was a set up when you are being molested in most public places and events. This event will be used to justify these actions time and time again. But remember who really committed these acts and how many questions surrounded these events. The media will continue their brainwashing while they sell the ideas to the public. If you respect freedom and the Constitution you must reject these new proposed laws or actions.

I like Breaking Bad, Dexter, and The Walking Dead. That does NOT mean that I am a violent person or that I want to hurt people. ::eye roll:: I think that they are reaching for ANYTHING that could help them figure out why this crime was committed.

As I read this story I was wondering whose kid or younger sibling wrote it. These two men committed an act of terrorism against our country. Boston was chosen because they lived there and knew the area. This nonsensical story has nothing to do with the true intentions nor actions of these men. Our country and the Americans who met these two from all accounts welcomed them with open arms. The older brother was married and his wife converted to his religion. There are no stories of acts of prejudice against them. They took advantage of our open arms to those wanting freedom and a better way of life. No music or tv show caused that. Tmz your idiots to even suggest a trivial thing. Radical Muslin extremists want to KILL every single man, woman, and child who does not convert to their vision of being a Muslim. They have and will kill Muslims who don't go by their restrictive beliefs. And how hypocritcal these martrys--hopefully, a court of law will give the younger brother this wish--are just like the suicide bombers of 9/11, indulging in forbidden pleasures of the flesh before dieing for their radical cause. The United States very existence goes against everything these radicals believe. Tmz it's time to stop covering this story. You are trying to take one of the most serious issues of our time and turn it into an entertainment story. It's not.
