Hi! Re: " Like the fact that the sister first came after the father with the same knife, he grabbed it form her, and used it against her." I am aware the parents argued this in court. This cannot be true because the FBI was bugging the house and never recorded dialog that indicated that. The conversation would have occurred differently had she threatened them first. I am sorry to say that the parents dealt the first blows.
