Attempted Murder Charges For Man In Dave and Buster’s Stabbing

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — The man accused of repeatedly stabbing an 8-year-old boy in a Long Island restaurant will face attempted murder charges.

Evan Sachs, a 23-year-old movie theater worker from Merrick, has also been indicted on several other charges.

The little boy survived.

If convicted, Sachs faces up to 25 years in prison.

    Thank God the Grand Jury came back with these charges. Do you remember the ridiculous and offensive statements made by his lawyer and his mother….”we want to get him the help he needs” and “he needs more mental health treatment”. Yeah right….so do Charles Manson and the Night Stalker. Now parents won’t have to look over their shoulders in malls and arcades, wondering if poor little Evan is lurking behind their kids with his bloody knife.

    This story is scary and gruesome. This man ” is not well “, we don’t know when the next time he will snap again and start stabbing others…..this individual is also 23 years old, which is quite young to be this disturbed. Clearly he cannot walk free any where on the streets, but how long should he be locked up for? He is mentally ill and violent ( might be genetics or severe abuse as a child ), solitary confinement to keep him away from other inmates, and years of therapy on tax payers’ money.
    Perhaps while he is in jail, have a priest see him on a regular basis, besides therapy, and have him work in prison. Other than that I don’t know what else to say on this one. Long term sentence, along with help, otherwise he will not be rehabilitated when he comes out….he looks ” gone mentally”…..God bless everyone involved.

    Headline as of 11/9/10 7:29 PM: Murder Charges For Man In Dave and Buster’s Stabbing

    There is a difference between murder charges and ATTEMPTED murder charges… please fix your misleading headline.

    When I first saw it I said “OMG, that kid died? They said he was going to recover”

      Seriously, you people get paid to write these headlines?

  4. AHF says:

    Why can’t we just eliminate these people from existence? Are you liberals so blind by your own self-loathing?

    1. KPMC says:

      So we can post comments advocating the “elimination” of mental patients but comparing that to Nazi atrocities gets my post deleted? Or was it just the fact my post contained a three letter word that refers some of the victims of said atrocities that threw up a red flag?

      Do you people even know how to comprehend what you read or do you just have a knee-jerk reaction when you see certain words?
