This could refer to any number of incidents if the past. Paul's parents allow Erik to do pretty much anything he wants..... and never reprimand him for his actions. If Paul is referring to a specific incident, it would likely be the way Paul's parents hid the fact that it was Erik who sprayed paint into his eyes. He not only physically hurt his brother.... or shall we say tortured him, but was protected by his parents after commiting such an act.
