Lyle and Erik Menendez got their punishment and they are in jail for over 31 years now for killing their parents. I am not saying that they don't deserve a punishment. They did a wrong thing. What I am trying to say is, that they didn't get help and no one wanted to really hear what they have said about who their parents were and what they did to their own children.

In their first trial they told the jury what happened to them in their life. These information, evidence and their testimonies caused a mistrial. So that in their second trial they removed their defense in ignorance of child abuse. Child abuse only happens to girls they said. They didn't get a chance.


They didnt got a real chance to reach out for help cause they were scared for their lives. Someone who never was in such a position, cannot rate this. Why did they reach out for help before or why didn't they run away and leave their parents? Being ashamed of something that happens to yourself is maybe the worst feeling in the world. Being scared to tell anyone, cause you are scared of their reaction or scared of the consequences or scared of how they would treat you afterwards.

They suffered their whole lifes and thats not fair. Everyone deserves a second chance and some sort of love, happiness and positivity in their lives.

They got sexually molested by their dad and at some point by their mom. They where abused and punished. Horrific things happened to them since they were kids.
