I don't see how the baby is doing well now. How can she? She has damages that will be with her, her whole life. I am talking about eyes and they don't know what damaged has been done to her brain. So-----give me a break. The bail is not high enough, and I can't believe his family not looking at what he did to a member of their family.

Something is not right in Biondo household. The dept of children services should keep a close watch on that situation.

In my eyes he should serve life in prison,this poor baby will never have a normal life, because he was mad over her crying for food.Or someone should do to him as he did to the baby,its people like him that need to be put away for LIFE.I just hope and pray this baby will beable to live a unpainful life.I BEG THE COURTS PUT HIM AWAY FOR attemted murder,thats what he was trying to do,if you think of it,its hard to believe the baby lived after being kicked so many times and shock so hard.WHAT if it was YOUR CHILD????? GOD BLESS THIS BABY AND MOMMY.

Do these people even think of what they say before they say it? I think his bail they claim to be "egregiously excessive"..is good enough..He may not have killed Evelynn but what he did to her could have but she is a fighter!!! Why would anyone let that monster out into the public..look what he did to his own baby..

Where was his family support when this happend? A poor innocent child is facing a life of many challenges if she survives? Max the sentence and for 14 family members ask yourself why you wern't helping a new young father care for this beautifull baby! Thats what family is really about!

"very, very strong family base," That is the most absurd thing I think I have ever read...This man ELBOWED his BABY and KICKED her in the head. What kind of family base is that? Obviously he doesn't seem to think that his 3 week old baby is family or something. This man shouldn't even have a bail in my opinion! Shaking a baby on it's own should be life in prison. The amount of damage that is caused just from 3 seconds can be irreversible, let alone for 30 seconds! I honestly can't think of ANY reason why Joshua Cohen should be let out of jail for any amount of money!
you should pay

This whole story is disgusting. He should rot in jail from now until eternity for hurting such an innocent child that knew nothing of what was going on or why that was being done to her. I think his bail should stick regardless. The judge should use him as an example to other people that think hurting your baby is okay. Well guess what "IT'S NOT" No matter how you look at it it's child abuse and if he did it once whats to say he won't do it again.

I think he needs to be put away. Evelynn didn't do anything to him before he beat her nearly to death. What would he have done if he had killed her? Almost killing a baby is just the same as killing her. Evelynn will never be the same. For God sake, she can't see her mommy or grandma. And God only knows what the extent of the damage. This judge needs to put his foot down. Yeah put it down and smash Joshua's head. Put him AWAY and lets hope he never has anymore kids, EVER!

This Man desirves a much longer sentence than he will ever see. I only hope that the judge makes a example of him and put him away for the full 25 years. Someone who can do this to an innocent child could do much worse to someone else. He is a danger to everyone if he is out. he should be held without bail. He shouldnt see the free world unshackeld for at least 100 years but we wont get that so lets settle for 25 years plus araignment time. If you agree say respond! If not your nutts!
