Steve Ott has an idea on how to handle Boston bombing suspects

Apr 18, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

The FBI released photos and video of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing and Buffalo’s Steve Ott wants everyone to help find them. He’s also got an idea on how to handle delivering justice as well as he shared on Twitter.


That kind of response would not likely go over well in the eyes of the world. You’re also not likely to get an apology out of Ott for feeling the way he does.

After all, he and the Sabres were in Boston for last night’s game, the first one to take place after Monday’s tragic events. Being part of that scene and seeing things up close can make it all hit home even more, something he’s said on Twitter as well.

    That goes over just fine with me.

    • scottybcboy - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:17 PM

      Really? Justice for all? Wtf? There were four terrorist attacks worldwide on the 15th and Boston’s were the least harmful…..where is the outrage over all the dead in other countries?……shameful!

      • hockeyflow33 - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:38 PM

        Shut your stupid mouth

      • scottybcboy - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:46 PM

        Yeah, there is no reason for proper justice, or a fair trial, or perspective when there are hundreds, not three, dead in other attacks…..and here I thought that was what America was all about.

      • DonkeyStick - Apr 19, 2013 at 1:14 AM

        Move to one of those countries and you can rant about it all you want.

      • sunderlanding - Apr 19, 2013 at 1:46 AM

        Yes because it’s completely unreasonable for people to care more about what happens in their own backyard. You think the other countries that went through an attack are crying for the dead in Boston? There are too many people in the world to cry for everyone. Deal with your own first, and if by chance you can get that done then move on to the others.

    I cant say I disagree…but what’s important is just finding them, making sure they’re no longer a threat to the public in Boston or elsewhere. After their pictures were released I rode the T (train/subway) home, seemed like everyone was hyper vigilant on the look out for them. Let’s hope we find them sooner rather than later.

  3. dkphilly1122 - Apr 18, 2013 at 8:20 PM

    I actually agree with Ott on this one. Let the people affected by these scumbags in Boston do whatever they wanna do to them. It will make idiots like them think twice before they do it. But they will sit in jail for the rest of their lives living off the Victims tax money…….pathetic!!

    • scalfor3 - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:29 PM

      If found guilty for charges of terrorism in federal court, they’ll fry. I hope so

      • mattj2524 - Apr 19, 2013 at 12:39 PM

        People like these don’t tend to let themselves be taken alive.

        Human life isn’t seen as important to them – even their own.

  4. badintent - Apr 18, 2013 at 8:28 PM

    Let the stoning begin ! After the Tar and Feather stuff. Boston, old British history, Bristish soldiers had a bad habit of doing that to colonists back in the day.

    • hallsy19 - Apr 18, 2013 at 8:35 PM

      I don’t disagree, but you’ve got the history backwards. It was the American colonists stoning and tar and feathering. Either way, I like the idea of colonial justice.

      • badintent - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:36 PM

        My bad, will google it.maybe my high school text book was corrupted by all the Playboy mag pics in it.

      • greenmtnboy31 - Apr 19, 2013 at 12:05 PM

        It was British loyalists.

  5. jaredo10 - Apr 18, 2013 at 8:33 PM

    we the people agree

  6. 8man - Apr 18, 2013 at 8:47 PM

    If those pics truly reflect the actual perpetrators…dead douche bags walking…

  7. 28giroux28 - Apr 18, 2013 at 8:50 PM

    Put Chara in the interrogation room…they’ll talk.

  8. jacketsfan7 - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:00 PM

    Put Scott Stevens in a room with them , along with Sean Avery and Matthew Barnaby

    • johnstone17 - Apr 18, 2013 at 10:26 PM

      Don’t forget Nicky Fotiu.

  9. jacketsfan7 - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:01 PM

    I would slowly and painfully kill them both

  10. cabby782 - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:07 PM

    Last night i watched a young man on CNN with scabs on his face from shrapnel telling the world about his 4 friends who lost legs in the bombing in Tuesday & how their lives were changed forever and how one of his friends a carpenter will never again ply his trade because of his scalded hands . I have never been more touched in my life by TV . These assholes took people’s lives dreams hopes I strongly agree with Mr Ott

  11. sjsharks66 - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:13 PM

    Tie them up and let Chara and Weber just continuously shoot their famous slap shots at them.

  12. drewzducks - Apr 18, 2013 at 9:48 PM

    Mr. Ott has just gained quite a few fans in the Greater Boston area. And personally, I don’t give a flying puck how well his response goes over in the eyes of the world.

  13. ironman721 - Apr 18, 2013 at 10:00 PM

    I’m strangely comfortable wit it.

  14. koozie618 - Apr 18, 2013 at 10:02 PM

    Why would Sean Avery be in that room, did someone need a male model?

    • whatthepuck2012 - Apr 19, 2013 at 10:07 AM

      Just to make sure everyone looked fashionable. Duh.

  15. bobhpine - Apr 18, 2013 at 10:12 PM

    The Internet. Where barbarism is good policy and everyone is the executioner.

    Seriously though. If you find yourself agreeing with a Neanderthal like Steve Ott, maybe it’s time to reevaluate things.

    • sunderlanding - Apr 19, 2013 at 1:49 AM

      …because there is never a time for barbarism? If you can’t see the purpose of everything maybe you need to reevalute things.

  16. gbar22 - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:10 PM

    Dumbest thing I’ve read from a player.

  17. eagles512 - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:15 PM

    I’m on board. Those animals don’t deserve a trial.

  18. drez146 - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:16 PM

    Scottybc shut ur dirty mouth, sympathizers like u make me want to vomit but hey it’s the land of the free so u can speak ur mind right? Well so can Steve Ott, just because it wasn’t pc doesn’t mean he can’t speak his mind too. Go f urself, there I spoke my mind too

    • scottybcboy - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:28 PM

      Sorry drez, I didn’t realize that America’s ideals were so offensive to you….next time I will keep quiet.

      • DonkeyStick - Apr 19, 2013 at 1:16 AM

        Is it next time yet?

  19. buffalomafia - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:43 PM

    I agree with Ott except tie a bomb around both of those assholes and have someone from Boston detonate them while they play Sweet Caroline! Who agrees?

  20. bobhpine - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:58 PM

    Lock them in a supermax prison until they die. I would rather get blown up than spend 60 years in a tiny cell with no contact with anyone, no books, no tv, one hour of exercise a week. Think about how awful that would be. That’s what these animals deserve. We need not stoop to their level and become violent animals ourselves.

  21. pariseinminnesotabichez - Apr 18, 2013 at 11:58 PM

    Let Chara and Weber take a few hundred clappers at them and then tie them up on the boards and have niklas kronwall repeatingly kronwall them

    • whatthepuck2012 - Apr 19, 2013 at 10:08 AM

      Can we have Murray “crankshaft” them, too?

  22. luvusa1 - Apr 19, 2013 at 12:17 AM

    @scottybc: If you’re that sympathetic to foreigners being killed and disgusted by Americans showing solidarity, you are free to leave the US anytime. You make me sick bleeder.

  23. pafinest87 - Apr 19, 2013 at 12:18 AM


    Yes it would be mentally tough to be locked up forever but sir we must pay for them to be forever locked up, pay for their medical bill, allow them to continue to spread their non sensical beliefs to others, to create a media frenzy anytime they have a trial, and the list goes on and on. @ whatever d-bag said only 3 people died if u said that to my face ur nose would be in the back of ur skull. 1 dead at the hands of these cowardly a-holes is one to many. I agree with Ott and the idea of chara pounding them to death. We didn’t become Americans by letting ppl walk all over us. We fight and we win. God bless Boston and all the victims of this tragedy.

  24. dkphilly1122 - Apr 19, 2013 at 12:20 AM

    Yeah let them sit in a jail cell for 60 years while Boston tax payers foot the bill…….they don’t deserve justice after what they did…….they don’t care so why should ANYONE wanna give them any form of sympathy?? Letting them sit in a cell for 60 years is too good for those scumbags. Let the victims and there families do what they feel is justice to them and the people of Boston.

  25. profsudz - Apr 19, 2013 at 12:22 AM

    98% of the people in this country disagree with the entire bill of rights, with the exception of about half of the population liking the second amendment, but 100% of those people consider themselves patriots.

    You can either love America for the ideas it was founded on, or you can love it because you happened to be born in it and you’re a tribal stooge.

  26. nicknyhc - Apr 19, 2013 at 1:23 AM

    As a combat veteran (OEF) this type of stuff coming from Americans really bothers me. The amount of ignorance and anti-American rhetoric coming from so called patriots is disturbing.

    If you were accused of a crime you’d want, and be given, a fair trial. The right to a fair and speedy trial is a basic right we as Americans have. Anyone who is against that is against America.

    I don’t sympathize for whoever is responsible for the attack getting punished. Find who did it, give them a trial, convict them and give them the death penalty. But don’t go off on a witch hunt and let fear and so called “patriotism” strip us of our sense.

    Its bad enough our President thinks using torture and indefinitely detaining suspects without a trial in Guantanimo is the right thing to do.

    • sunderlanding - Apr 19, 2013 at 1:52 AM

      You really think every president wasn’t doing stuff like that? The right to a fair trial is for the people who play fair. When the protection of the country is on the line none of that matters.

      • nicknyhc - Apr 19, 2013 at 9:59 AM

        So if I walk into a store and steal something today, when I go to court tomorrow on theft charges my defense could be that its ok because I wasn’t the first person to steal?

        Or would it still be wrong?

    • sunderlanding - Apr 19, 2013 at 3:22 PM

      Right or wrong doesn’t matter it’s what is needed. When national security is on the line you can’t expect them to play by the same rules as some dude who stole from the corner store. Grow up. The world is not black and white.

      • nicknyhc - Apr 20, 2013 at 1:27 PM

        Right or wrong doesn’t matter?

        Do you even listen to the b.s. you spew?

        Just remember that right or wrong didn’t matter when the Bill of Rights goes bye bye and America as we know it is gone.

        Google the National Defense Act, CISPA, Obama’s renewal of the Patriot Act, the Monsanto Protection Act.

        By the way, I’m not a Bush/Romney support or a Republican. Just a guy with some sense.

      • sunderlanding - Apr 20, 2013 at 6:58 PM

        You look at the world like a 12 year old. Right or wrong doesn’t matter when it comes to the protection of your country. That’s how the states was built. When at war you don’t play by the same rules otherwise half of the troops would be in jail for murder, or didn’t you get that far in school? I assume you’re against murder? So in you’re black and white world murder would be wrong no matter what? Even in the middle of a war or an invasion? Or is it ok to break the rules in that situation but not this one? Do you even think your arguments through? Grow up already.

  27. gary15217 - Apr 19, 2013 at 1:36 AM

    I agree with Ott. The naive, pansy-ass liberal idiocy of so many people is the problem. Idiot “progessives.”

  28. northstarnic - Apr 19, 2013 at 2:19 AM

    Steve ott = dumb

  29. thehighcountrybear - Apr 19, 2013 at 5:09 AM

    They got one…chasing the other! Are they brothers?

  30. justaride88 - Apr 19, 2013 at 5:24 AM

    Yep, Stevie. Lets do that. And when it’s done, lets go and bomb some more brown people in sake of freedom, juctice and democracy – the best values out there.

  31. mz1394 - Apr 19, 2013 at 6:51 AM

    Drag them behind a vehicle for all to see right after shoving a broomstick up their a$$

  32. thehighcountrybear - Apr 19, 2013 at 6:57 AM

    From Chechnya? Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, still at large.

    Man, that country has literally hundreds of factions with ancient tribal ties, grudges and vendettas…terrorists, but working for whom?

    This is going to be a massive riddle…

  34. prosportswashington - Apr 19, 2013 at 10:57 AM

    I’m torn between “taking the high road” and wanting to see them fry…

  35. bobhpine - Apr 19, 2013 at 2:33 PM

    It costs more money to put someone to death (automatic appeals for death penalty cases) than to keep them alive in prison…look it up

    • scalfor3 - Apr 20, 2013 at 3:29 AM

      Only because they have to do it in a “humane” way. They should just shoot him in the head (after a trial). Bullets are cheap.

  36. spiciercheez - Apr 19, 2013 at 3:05 PM

    I guarantee you could get a massive line of people willing to do it for free…..
