Police Assaulted After Breitbart Texas Leaks Document Warning of ISIS Against Law Enforcement

HOUSTON, Texas -- Zale Thompson, 32, attacked four New York City police officers with an 18.5 inch hatchet on Thursday.

Texas Man Released from Death Row Not Eligible for Compensation

AUSTIN, Texas -- Earlier this month, Manuel Velez was released from prison in Huntsville, after being sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit, the murder of his girlfriend's infant son. Breitbart Texas had the full story on the day of Velez's release, including an exclusive interview with Brian Stull, one of Velez's attorneys. Velez's original defense attorneys had failed to notice the significance of a report by a neuropathologist that showed that the child's fatal head trauma had occurred when Velez was known to be out of state. However, because of the plea deal that was struck for Velez to be released, he will be unable to collect anything under the Texas law that compensates those who have been wrongly convicted. 24 Oct 2014, 6:07 AM PDT
