California parents plead guilty to torture, abuse

A California couple on Friday pleaded guilty to 14 criminal charges in a deal prosecutors say will likely keep them in prison for the rest of their lives. David and Louise Turpin pleaded guilty to imprisoning, shackling and torturing some of their 13 children. They were arrested in January 2018 when their 17-year-old daughter managed to escape the house in Perris.

I read about this when it happened. I’m glad to see justice served. Unfortunately the children are going to need intensive and lifelong mental health help. These kids were abused from an early age. The family is originally from Texas and had only been living in California for a few years. A neighbor of theirs had witnessed odd activity from the Texas home but never got involved. They expressed regret as they could have intervened and had the children taken away much earlier.

To ABC news. Why does your article keep saying the "accused" and "alledgedly"? This became public shortly before I fled California. I read you article but didn't bother to look at pics of the house because I saw them before. They are no longer accused but convicted. The crimes are no longer alledged but proven in court. The convicted have been sentenced for the crimes they committed against their children. Why is that seemingly impossible for you to say?

I don't want to know anymore why they did it. Scums like this should just be put to death already instead of housing and feeding them for years.

I can't find lots of information on Louise but can't find anything on David. To know how we Americans can prevent shit like this from happening in the future we need to know more. How do we do this without violating privacy rights? With them it doesn't seem as concerning due to how long their incarceration is gonna last but it should be considered for even the worst criminals and I'm wondering how Nordic countries would deal with a situation like this. Retributive justice vs restorative justice. The interviews with the sisters of Louise give a slight background but it just isn't enough. The kids should not have suffered like that. So many of them too.
