He tweeted earlier this year ... "Breaking Bad taught me how to dispose of a corpse."


He made no effort to dispose of the corpses of the people he killed, so this argument is invalid.

He didn't dispose of any corpses.

It's ironic because it's quite likely that shows like TMZ helped drive them over the edge.

How many times have we been down this road?  TMZ, read this carefully:

He was crazy BEFORE he started watching Breaking Bad.

TV doesn't turn you into a sociopath.  I've watched every episode of Breaking Bad from seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4, and I have yet to kill anyone and dispose of their body with acid.

You morons that try to connect violence with television viewing are the same idiots that think you see the Virgin Mary in a water stain under a bridge.

God Is My Co-Pirate: Mad_Radhu: We should require background checks for dragons. They shouldn't just be given to teenagers with a family history of mental illness.

It is my constitutional right to buy as much wildfire as I like.

Oliver Twisted: I must have horrible reading comprehension.  Can someone point out the portion where TMZ blames the bombers actions on a show?


uh...the headline:
"BOSTON BOMBER TOOK CUES FROM BREAKING BAD"

/plus it's implicit in publishing the article in the first place.

24 i could understand, but not sure how Breaking Bad applies here.  Were those pressure cooker meth bombs or something?

What about that reality show "How to Blow Up a Crowd" on the Anarchy Network? I know it lost a lot of viewers after if fired Jasmine from Semtex Island (fired from a cannon) after her improvised beehive device failed to kill the 20 pre-schoolers to keep her in the running. Of course, she was the eye candy in her latex and leather outfit that stood out among the rest. Now, as they head in to the finals, it's just four hyper obese guys with poor sanitary habits who blame their upbringing and Jihad, a swarthy middle eastern man who screams "Justice! Revenge!" every time the camera focuses on him.

I know. It's on my Tivo but I don't even watch it anymore. If I want blood and gore, I'll watch "Happy Tree Friends".
