Boston Bombing Suspect

Supporter UNLOADS

Pressure Cooker 'Is Way Too Heavy to Carry'

5/14/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An ardent supporter of the "Free Dzhokhar Tsarnaev" movement fervently believes the Boston bombing suspect is innocent -- and among her points of defense ... a pressure cooker bomb is "way too heavy" to carry around in a backpack.

Sarah Cook called in to "TMZ Live" yesterday to explain why Dzhokhar is innocent, claiming the mainstream media is unfairly turning the public opinion against the 19-year-old without reporting all the facts.

But Sarah's defense is holier than Swiss cheese -- and her worst argument ... Dzhokhar couldn't have carried a pressure cooker bomb in his backpack because they're "way too heavy."

FYI, a pressure cooker bomb weighs roughly 30 pounds ... certainly not out of the realm of possibility for a 19-year-old male.

The interview's pretty great ... so we gotta ask ...

She fails to understand that if they were "innocent" they would not have ran from police..they would not have been in a shoot out with police..they would not have even had weapons on them to begin with. If he was innocent he would have surrendered without incident. Pretty hard for this big cover up to go on while the world watched it happening in real time. Im tired of these little ****heads thinking that their arguments are valid and that they have the wisdom to speak out on this. They're fooli******tle kids who hopefully look back on this in 10 years and realize how fkn stupid they sounded.

What a bag of nuts. I knew of an idiot that is obsessed with James Holmes that sounds like this lunatic. She is also unemployed and has a lot of free time to obsess over cute killers she doesnt know. And spend money to sit in court just to catch a glimpse of their Justin Bieber like obsession.Run and hide if you meet this psycho or anyone like her. Theyll try to lure you in and youll figure out their elevators dont go to the top floor of rationality. As you can see the James Holmes "researcher" aka. Stalker has me f**kin spooked.

This girl is a BAG OF NUTS! I knew of this crazy unemployed lunatic who was obsessed with james Holmes and even paid to sit in court (when we all pay to stay out) just to catch a glimpse of their Justin Bieber like crush. And this broad sounds just like that #1 James Holmes fan who "researched" stalked everyone involved in his crimes. Everyone should stay away from her BEC. Her elevator doesnt venture to the top floor of rationality and she'll try to lure you into her crazy antics.

Shes not particularly articulate, but its a valid position all the same. Much, if not all of what the media has presented is essential hearsay (unconfirmed, unnamed source, or unverified information). A fair but like a gossip magazine in fact, in journalistic integrity.

Guilt or innocence is decided thoroughly, in a court of law, with due process, and with the initial presumption of innocent, and media trial, hearsay, and the presumption of guilt, essentially perverts the rule of law, making us less civilized, and more like witch hunts in the middle ages.

It's all very well when it happens to somebody else of course, someone you know little about, but giving the media power to decide somebodies guilt or innocence, without presenting any or much information of substance is a dangerous thing - if its allowed to occur, and the rule of law perverted, then one day it could be you, or you grandchildren who are declared guilty without due process, or verified evidence of substance.
