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."

Dzhokhar is guilty

  • Yes
  • No
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 ...

The regular fashion type backpacks I get all tear apart easily when I stuff them full of things like clothes. You need a heavy reinforced pack to carry something heavy. The pack Tammerlan had on was cleary saggy at the top half, so I don't think it was very strong at all.

That's one of the dumbest questions tmz has ever asked. And that 7% say that he's not guilty is ludicrous. What's wrong with people? He has basically admitted his guilt, and these crazy b i t c h e s that find him attractive and not guilty need to be watched.

How do you know that Dzhokhar is even alive? They said he was moved to a prison, but no one has heard hide no hair of him since. Maybe he died in the hospital. He was shot to the throoat and they did a tracheotomy on him. Usually you can't just live like that.


They are probably going to come out with the news that he suddenly died way down the road. No friend, family member, defense lawyer, or anyone not on the goverment's side will ever be able to hear his story first hand.


His parents wanted to come to America to see him and they got scared they would be arrested. Whatever gave them that idea? Is soemone trying to keep them away?


If they killed his brother so easily, they probably klled him two. Two patsies alone in the USA with nothing but high hopes and aspirations. Maybe they were curious about jihad so that was all the excuse the FBI thugs needed to set them up in a false flag operation.


Usually when you jugular vein is shot, that is then end of you.

The fact that the guy was training to be a boxer or whatever should show 30lbs on his back wasn't much. Not to mention the rest of the evidence supporting it and the fact the surviving one confessed before Miranda Rights was given....yeah, not enough evidence....*rolls eyes*

This page is full of trolling shills. I feel like I am arguing with robo haters. You can't just prove your side and have someone else prove theirs. They just attack with faulty logic ad infinitum.


The battle for the soul begins in the mind. Who said that? I respect anyone who stands for the truth and does not just spout of party line propaganda.

TMZ, you seriously need to reconsider what you should and should not report about. This piece of trash and his supporters should NOT BE GLORIFIED.

It's good to have her face up next to the terrorist - If someone "accidentally" inflicts horrible violence on her I hope they're good looking, just for the irony.

Well, men declared Casey Anthony was innocent because they found her attractive. So, nothing surprising here, except that far too many believe their speculations to be facts
