Judge’s Daughter Speaks Out on Releasing Violent Beating Video: ‘I Finally Snapped’

(By Billy Hallowell, The Blaze) - The story about a Texas judge who was secretly taped beating his daughter has captivated America.

During the interview, Hillary explained that, as a teenager, her father’s beatings had increased in their fervency. So, she decided to setup a camera to capture his full-blown anger.
