I started crying when I heard what he said his parents are disgusting but what they did was even worse why couldn't they call police and tell them what's going on I'm I sound harsh but there were more ways to handle ur parents than killing them...

Every killer after getting caught has the, “I was sexually abused by my father/uncle/teacher”. It’s the standard story to make yourself look like the victim.

You know that those kids had to be being abused and resentful towards their parents , who on earth has enough anger to actually go through with killing their parents. I definitely am more on the brothers sides because could you imagine the amount of pain it would take for someone to break and kill their parents? Especially THEIR parents. That’s how I know that something was going on. And not to mention the bed wetting and the balding. I’m in between because I think they should be punished for what they did but I don’t think it should be for life. Cases like this make me glad Im not the one making the decision because we’d have a lot of “murderers” out and about because the justice system is a failure

These young men have paid their debt for what they did which I feel they should not have gone to prison for in the first place..Unless you have been through what those young men have gone through being sexually abused by their own father and their mother knew exactly what was going on, cannot possibly know how you would react. The Judge and District Attorney need to have that experience as I am sure they would be singing a different toon. They have paid and need to be let out now..I sincerely hope that something is in the works to get them released..I will be praying for them with all my heart along with the millions of other people who I know feel the same way...JUSTICE FOR LYLE AND ERIK !!!!

Yea its easy to use "raped as child" argument to justify your murders and killings... people should stop jumping to conclusion and take everything for face value. We don't know we only know their side of story. They did a lot of crime in their youth and they acted quite spoiled so its hard to say what is true. But please stop buying into this sex abuse hysteria.

Their rage was totally justified as these seriously abused and raped sons acted in SELF DEFENSE.Barbara Walter's is such an idiot,portraying these sons as guilty when the parents were the monsters,who should have been put away for life for the abuse they heaped on these poor boys

Lyle saying “someone killed my parents” rubs me the wrong way tho
TRINITY KEEFER 16 dias atrás
@Kaylin White if the judge would have allowed the testimonies about the sexual assault that was going on in the home, it would have been evident that they both feared for their life and that it was self defense. If the defense would have stuck to a self defense case I’m sure the sentence would have been different

@clare meraw I get that, but as you hear in the clip of the 911 call, Lyle says “someone killed my parents”, it just makes it seem like he was trying to deny any involvement in the murder

To anyone who says they are "crazy" or "greedy little kids" may be partially right, but come on- for both of them to kill like that... there's no way they were both "just nuts." They should have just done the fuckin trial correctly the first time. The abuse going on was totally real, and how you can really tell it was is because during the second trial they did not take the stand. They were unwilling to re-live that trauma for yet another time. So of course that's going to make them look guilty. Im shocked the jury on the second trial didn't just observe the first one... and act a little more accordingly with deliberation. I can't believe we have a story like this but then Zimmerman and Anthony walk away.

Yes, no human deserves to be killed. but they weren't human, they were dishonest perverted pedophiles. They raised their own killers. I'm so sorry for the brothers. If only there was another way. But their father was very rich and there was no legal way. According to them, they would either kill or be killed . They made their choice and are now serving their sentences. First, their parents ruined their children's lives. Then the children ruined their own lives.They are( the parents and the brothers )criminals and also victims.But I think the biggest criminals are the parents. I'm so sorry that they have such a family Additionally If there were any parents who abused their children, most conscientious people would want them executed. The problem here is that it was their own children who killed them. I think this is the point that leads people to separation. And i must say i'm so glad those disgusting people died

I feel badly for these brothers. They were horribly abused and did something about it and they're in their for life? They aren't dangers to society, they just needed to get out of that horrible situation. I mean, if they were abused, they aren't going to feel badly about them being dead and they shouldn't. We need to protect children so they don't feel alone and like they have no other option.

So theoretically if they also had killed their cousin that would have been ok because he knew that Lyle had been abused and never tried to stop it or tell someone before the trial? If anyone deserved to get killed it was their father Jose, imho. The mother might have been a victim as well, besides ending up as a murder victim. Who knows, she cant testify.

you people defending these monsters are fools- how many people go on million dollar spending sprees after they kill their parents??? the father was an abusive scumbag, but they were adults when they killed him - and their mother- and it wasn't in self defense - it was cold blooded brutal 1st degree murder....

Actually this whole case is pretty controversial. Initially they weren't acting like that. When was the first trial they showed up in sport suits and really didn't give a damn about anything and acted all cool, grinning. But when they and their lawyers heard how many years in prison they will have, they changed their behaviour, simultaneously changing their facial expression and suits. I and every one of you commentators have no damn idea what actually happened between them and their killed parents, we'll never know. So, of course i do not pick sides. But this case is really complicated. And do not say that they are poor boys, they were already adults when they killed their parents, therefore they were already able to earn money, therefore they were able to leave their parents, no matter how bad or good they were. As far as i know there were no strong evidence of their father being sexual abuser. Killing someone is the last thing you should do in your life even under the cruelest circumstances

@Tanvi Vijay Yes, the police would’ve had to conduct an investigation. Don’t forget, the boys were very famous too. Also, my point was that their parents let them go to the theatre. They could have called the cops there, away from their parents. You are defending cold blooded murderers right now.
Jeremy Gale
Jeremy Gale 27 dias atrás
The way I see it... even if their father was abusive and violent, they should have just gone somewhere safe and called 911 so that they could conduct an investigation. Then they would be behind bars rather than dead. If their father WASN’T abusive, obviously this was just a cold blooded murder for financial gain. Either way, I think they deserve to rot in prison.
Jeremy Gale
Jeremy Gale 26 dias atrás
@McKenna Siems First off, I never said that the father wasn’t abusive. Also, their parents would get out of prison, yes, but I’m sure they wouldn’t be allowed by authorities to be with their kids alone. There is NO reason that they couldn’t have called the cops. That’s why I think their story doesn’t add up. I could be wrong, but with everything I heard this is the conclusion I came to, and it makes sense.
McKenna Siems
McKenna Siems 27 dias atrás
I’d have to disagree. If you really think about it, if their parents were in prison, they would get out and still have to worry about being abused again. Can you elaborate on why the father wouldn’t be considered abusing? And even that molesting someone needs a punishment. They were defending themselves.
