Caitlyn Russell started this petition to Ted Lieu (Representative) and

31 years ago the Menendez brothers were sentenced to life in prison for the killings of their mother and father. Thought their lives, their father sexually abused them and threatened them. Their mother would force Erik Menendez to stay in her closet and do school work, he would be punished if he ever tried to leave. This was an act of self defence and these men deserve so much better. These boys were traumatised by the doing aid their abusers, the very people who were supposed to love them and protect them were the people causing them the most harm. These boys, now men were scared for their lives and needed a way out of the hell they were living in. They deserve so much better and they were not understood by the justice system and were just thrown into prison to rot when they deserved a much lesser sentence. The American criminal justice system has failed them. They were afraid and protecting themselves from their abusers. Help set them free. Let’s reopen their case and get these brothers out. No justice, No peace!!
