Advertisements So I watched all of it this week. I grew up with the narrative they were rich kids who killed their parents for the money. Watching the documentary idk what to believe... I do believe they were abused by their father and I know if I was in their shoes how hard it would be not put a bullet into the MFs head. I don't know how I feel about them killing the mom, if they did believe José and Mary where about to kill them then I can...I can see that, I don't know. I do think with the second trial the Judge heavily tipped the scales to favor the prosecutors. I don't think they should've have gotten life, 30 years maybe but not life.
