To find out, as an adult, that your parents were told by a professional that your sibling was a danger and should be removed from the house? And they never did?

Was he dangerous? Did you live in fear of him?

My parents?

Not surprised.

But parents in general?

I would feel like they were incredibly selfish and cared more about my sibling than me.

I'd feel like they put the need of the problem child over the safety of the rest of the children.

My mom had to call the cops once because he attacked me in front of them. He broke my bedroom door multiple times. He verbally tortured me daily. Never wanted me to be a part of his life. I very much lived in fear.

Fast forward, this came out because he just shot himself. He's going to live. But he was on house arrest at my parents for about a year and a half for a non-violent, sexual crime. I was always scared to visit. Felt panicky when he was still allowed a BB gun.

I'm trying, but the "nothing happened" was just shy of serious bodily harm. I think about certain behaviors I have now, because of my childhood. My mom just kept telling me (a few days ago) that they just couldn't choose.
