TX Gov Delivers Double Whammy to BLM Protesters with Huge Announcement on Sgt. Perry Case

Published on

Greg Abbott, the Republican governor of Texas, has heard all of the indignation surrounding Sgt. Daniel Perry’s conviction, and he is now taking action.

For those unfamiliar, Perry was propelled into the spotlight after he was accused of shooting and murdering Garrett Foster, a Black Lives Matter protester.

Tragically, two service members were involved in this incident, as Perry is a U.S. Army sergeant and Foster was a veteran of the Air Force.

According to The Guardian, Perry was traveling for Uber in downtown Austin on July 25, 2020, where a BLM rally was occurring as part of nationwide protests and unrest over the death of George Floyd.

After protestors surrounded his vehicle and Foster pointed an AK-47 at him, Perry’s legal team argued that the sergeant had no choice but to shoot Foster in self-defense.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, a Travis County jury did not find Perry’s defense to be persuasive enough, and he was convicted of homicide on Friday.

However, he was not found guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, despite allegations that he intentionally rammed his vehicle into the protestors.

Journalist Andy Ngo tweeted an image purporting to show the moment preceding the shooting:

Given that Texas has some of the most stringent “stand your ground” self-defense laws in the country, the conviction sent shockwaves through conservative circles.

A common theme among reactionary commentators is that Perry was convicted due to a district attorney financed by George Soros.

These objections to Perry’s conviction have apparently reached Abbott.

The Texas governor announced on Saturday that he is working on a pardon for Perry:

“Texas has one of the strongest ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws of self-defense that cannot be nullified by a jury or a progressive supreme court,” Abbott wrote.

“Unlike the President or some other states, the Texas Constitution limits the Governor’s pardon authority to only act on a recommendation by the Board of Pardons and Paroles. Texas law DOES allow the Governor to request the Board of Pardons and Paroles to determine if a person should be granted a pardon.

“I have made that request and instructed the Board to expedite its review,” Abbott said.

“Additionally, I have already prioritized reining in rogue District Attorneys, and the Texas Legislature is working on laws to achieve that goal.”

Restricting district attorneys and clemency for Perry? If Abbott succeeds, you can guarantee that liberal activists will be disappointed.
