Kurt Paschke, 38, served three years in state prison in the 1990s after he was convicted as a teen of fatally stabbing 17-year-old Henri Ferrer during a fight behind a pizza parlor in Sayville, L.I.
They have long believed that Paschke, who was 17 at the time of the fatal fight, was allowed to plea to a lesser crime and given just three years in prison because his father, also named Kurt, was a Suffolk County cop.
“He’s dangerous and he thinks he’s untouchable because he’s the son of a police officer,” said a Ferrer relative who was so frightened that she pleaded not to be identified. “He got away with murder.”
“Anybody else would probably get arrested for that fight” at the Jets game, added Ferrer’s 78-year-old father, Robert. “As far as I’m concerned, he should spend quite a few years in jail. That’s what he deserves.”
Police are still investigating the incident. I would hope that he is punished in some way and learn a lesson.
