When I was in my twenties, my neighbor in Manhattan an old French woman yelled "Help! He's got a knife!" outside the front door of our brownstone apartment house. Somehow, I opened the front door, grabbed her coat, pulled her in and slammed the door shut. Another time I met a burglar in the hallway hopped up on drugs. I became a killer and he ran. You'd be amazed what you are capable of.

What a dope you are! The police can't be everywhere at once. You live in a fantasy world.
Give credit to the Good Samaritan for what he did. To blame the police is nonsense. There are only so many patrol officers out on the street at any time of day or night and you have no clue as to how many calls they get and are on in one shift.
If you doubt me, try calling your local precinct if you have a noise complaint. Do you think they can just show up? Calls are prioritized and given out. Furthermore, a patrol unit cannot just pick up and leave a job. There's a procedure involved and if you're getting attacked one minute and the cops are assigned to your call, you wouldn't want them to leave you when you're getting the stuffings beaten out of you.

He's from Uniondale. What do you expect? Those lazy Nassau Cops probably locked him up for gun posession or dwi.

To all of you who do not know what truly happened that night... That "Good Samaritan" is my best friend Kevin Emmet who is a former Marine. We were all drunk at 3:45am getting food at a 24 hour bagel store. A young man (the victim) came there who by no means was an outstanding citizen of character in any fashion or form... I will reserve my opinions though, anyhow the situation occurred because of his ignorance as well as my irrational state of mind at the moment for being drunk. My intentions were not to hurt the guy at all, I just have a troubled past with anger and handled the situation wrong. Iím very blessed and thankful that no one got hurt that night and feel very sorry that I may have affected anybody (including the victim) any kind of emotional or mental harm/distress.
Anyways, Iím glad my friend inspired some people in a positive way and gave them courage to be a hero in some sort of way... but it is very dangerous to do what he did because you put yourself in danger with someone that you donít know how there going to react. For instance, if I was some mental case out there with the intentions to hurt someone and he tried to intervene, He could have got hurt or even killed. But because he is my friend from elementary school and my intentions werenít to hurt anyone, it made things a little easier for him to try and take the knife out of my hand because he knew I wasnít a threat. I was just extremely drunk and out of place. Iím not saying donít protect someone from danger, Iím just saying evaluate the situation before you get involved so you or anyone else wonít get hurt. Unless that is you donít have a choice.
The 2 off duty Brownsville cops were there almost instantly after my friend took the knife from me... since he had the knife in his hands the cops drew their weapons on him and told him to drop it. I then stepped up and told them that the knife was not his and I took full responsibility for my action. The victim confirmed it so I was then asked to wait for the cops to come. None of which what you all assumed from the "chopped and screwed" details that you read in the paper.
Also for those who were judgmental and angry at me and wished bad things upon me... I did 8 months in jail with no problems. I worked in the kitchen and lived in an open dorm... so sorry bud, there was no "bubba" and no cell. Plus that doesnít happen in jail... maybe prison, but not jail. I am by no means a dirt bag or any other derogatory name that any of you could think of. Iím a well loved friend and family member who just made a mistake because I am not perfect. I donít know what world you live in but Iím sure you have done things too that makes you not perfect as well. Only GOD makes final judgments... not sinners who also make mistakes.
Anyways, I apologize again for my mistake. I was in the wrong and paid for it. I hope some people can see things from other perspectives before they criticize and make judgments. The news is apart of the entertainment industry... the sources arenít always precise on information due to lack of interest in sharing full detail and busy schedules. So the "news" people will improvise with imagination so they can have a story to tell for the public to read. So donít believe everything you hear or read. If you want to know the truth, you are better off finding the source yourself and finding out that way... not through "He said, She said" and story telling. Thatís just my opinion.
I hope I cleared things up and gave some closer to those who are still confused or worried about what happened. I wish you all well and hope you have a blessed day. Sincerely, Bryan J. Weixler

Is it safe to assume you were forced to write this to be in compliance with the alcohol diversion program the court ordered you to join?

really? shooting some 1 in the head in 07 and then trying to stab another really doesnt classify as a good man in my book..... maybe he should be in a nice padded room where the only harm he can do is to his self ..
