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 ...

I would love for this girl to come to Boston and say this stuff in our city. We'll see how well that goes...

I challenge you to think about what the caller said. 30lbs in a backpack with a handle that sticks out as pictured above. Now go look at them with the backpacks. Does it look like there is much of anything in those backpacks, let alone 30lbs weighing it down? Plus the exploded backpacks were black. What color is the backpack of the brothers. I know it scary to use critical thinking skills and possibly think for yourself instead of just believing what Gov't says....but just try it.

I didn't pay attention to what she was saying. By the time my attention was finally redirected away from her enormous noggin, the video ended :/

And 8% of the votes that he isn't guilty came from Muslims?

This girl is just stupid. Proof: Her saying a pressure cooker is heavy. This is just a movement by lonely women who want to gather for a stupid common cause so they are a little less lonely. Frankly this **** is gross but it has happened before with multiple notorious killers (David Berkowitz, Timothy McVeigh, Lee Malvo, etc etc.). There is plenty of proof that they did it, and I'm sure some idiot will try to convince me it was the 'illuminati' or 'NWO' and my response to you is; get back on your schizophrenia meds.

This girl is obviously an uneducated idiot. She has no idea what she is talking about. Her parents are ashamed of her, this is her 15 mins of fame. She def. wasnt going to get it at school so she decided to take something like this on. Someone like her should stand trial right along side of him. She deserves to rot in jail. She needs to research the facts watch the video, not to mention he admitted to the bombing. Told investigators there plan for newe york as well.

This girl is not stupid. She is trying to debate with a laywer and people who are older than she is and used to discussing things in public. She is taking an interest in current events and trying to figure out what it really means. I think that is great. I think that is what young people should be doing instead of trolling. The trolls are probably fat old CIA Nazis on a disinfo campaign anyway though.


She is stupid, take your meds, all the endless namecalling and baseless attacks, this is CIA disinfo trolling.

How about you do an experiment. Get a cheap backpack out of the sporting goods store like the brothers had. Buy some pressure cookers and fill them with ball bearings and nails. Then stick them in the packs and try to carry them and then try to throw them.


This is ludicrous. The packs would have ripped, you can't carry more than one of these things at a time. Now people want to say it was grenades they were throwing. Where did they get the grenades and guns? Where is there any evidence that they ever had grenades and guns?


The story was supposed to be that they were simple Chechen rebels who made bombs out of goods from the hardware store.

The last thing America needs to do is provoke a war with Russia. Russia kicks butt. Russia won the ground war in WW II. We don't need to stir up people and send troops there to make trouble. That is going to make Russia mad.


This whole story sounds like the plot of Borat Bombs America. I mean really, some Asian foreigners, some skinny little mop top and his shy brother who can't expose his body in front of women, they are going to take on the USA singlehandedly?
