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.

People should be thinking about and relating with their own families, not watching these shows about drug dealing families or whatever nonsense the other one is about. As a man thinks, so he becomes -- was that Rene Descartes who said that?

Another thing that people say is garbage in, garbage out. If you are dwelling on negative garbage, that will fill your heart and come out in your spirit. You want to think about positive and uplifting things or at least things that you can handle.

Glorified crime is not a good thing to dwell on. TV is a major tool of brainwashing. It softens the mind up so that radical and negative ideas can come in and take over.

You want to be ever vivgilant about guarding your heart and mind from evil.

He is an American Citizen thanks to our Government, therefore he has the same rights as the rest of us to have an attorney and fair trial....he is not a foreign terrorist, he is an American (again thank our Government) he is no more a terrorist than the white man that killed 20 children or the crazy fool who shot up a movie theater, deal with it. This was domestic terrorism, not foreign so all the idiots can stop saying how proud of America they are...I am not speculating on whether or not he is innocent, but take a look at the FBI who said they had no ties to either suspect, and then after the mother says they spoke to her years ago the FBI admitted it but said they had nothing on him- WELL if they were really doing their jobs, wouldn't they have deported him in 2009 when he was arrested??? There is way more to this...They could have put a 6 year old on the news with a hat and backpack and told the public he/she was the suspect and most of you idiots would have believed it without question.

About the Boston situation i believe the situation was the Boston police department fault.Even the night before, to the morning,it should have been patrolled and checked.They should have been more alert.They should have had about 4 policemen on either side of the street patrolling the sidewalk back and forth.And anybody with backpack, they should be pulled aside and checked. This would've eliminated any kind of bomb problems.During the marathon, new people come in with backpacks,These patrolling police men on either side on the street should be checking even though it was checked already.

I know that a lot of you probably won't see my point of view but personally as a Christian, I feel for this young man & believe he was "brain washed" by his brother. I am by no means condoning what he did, its just a small part of me feels empathy.

honestly TMZ, first you try to associate an entire genre of music with this persons actions and now youre taking on a television show. if there was ever a correlation every defense lawyer in the world would rely on it. stop being so damn irritating with your posts

I bet he was a registered Democrat, since MSNBC kept talking about him being a Right Wing Nutjobs, but I bet this guy voted for President Obama just like James Holmes.

yes they should blame tv shows. too much stupid violence and the worst part is the tv shows cannot and do not fully allow the viewer to fully understand the reality and consequences of the violence ! If you don't understand this then there is just no use in arguing any further. this 19yr old is now gonna find out hard and fast the reality and consequences of his fantasy world !
