Gov. Greg Abbott pardons Daniel Perry, veteran who murdered police brutality protester in 2020

Quote

More than a year after a jury convicted Daniel Perry of murdering a protester, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) pardoned the former U.S. Army sergeant on Thursday shortly after a parole board recommended a full pardon.

A Texas state district court judge sentenced Perry in May 2023 to 25 years in prison for shooting and killing U.S. Air Force veteran Garrett Foster during a 2020 demonstration protesting police brutality against people of color. 

Completely LEGAL and wholly UNETHICAL. So Trumpian. 🤮

Ewww. We're all getting used to Republicans rejecting justice in favor of culture-war political issues, but this one is extra gross. If he doesn't murder again first he'll be back in jail for statutory rape.

Democrats cheer on the lawlessness in the streets. These are the consequences.

Even if it weren't predicated upon a fiction, that would be a sorry excuse.

  • More than a year after a Travis County jury convicted Daniel Perry of murdering a protester in Austin, Gov. Greg Abbott pardoned Perry, 37, on Thursday shortly after the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles recommended a full pardon.
  • the parole board said it delved into the intricacies of Perry's case, by reviewing documents, police report, court records, witness statements and interviews of individuals linked to the case. 

Then again, robo posted a stupid meme and mumbled about something. Hmmm...

I posted a story, and you posted the same with NO EXPLANATION of WHY Perry should be pardoned other than "documents" and "interviews," when the JURY CONVICTED HIM. It's like you believe the pardon board had evidence that the JURY DIDN'T, even though you don't know what that was. 🤮

Probably cause there is NONE. BTW, did YOU "mumble about something"? Cause what you posted lacks ANY DETAIL.

No fiction. No excuse. Just a reality. The left wants to push this lawlessness in the streets, these are the kinds of consequences that happen. 

These "protestors" angrily surrounded and stopped this guy in his car, one of them open carrying a rifle coming at him in a threatening manner. Right or wrong, the guy is dead because he was illegally detaining someone with a rifle in a threatening manner.

Foster was reckless. Actions have consequences. Perry was smart enough to have his own weapon and only uses it because he was threatened and only shot the guy threatening him. That was perfectly legal. The jury got it wrong. This is the perfect reason to pardon someone.

A. False, Perry drove through a red light to get into the crowd. 

B. He was not detained by foster. Foster was beside the car and Perry rolled down his window to take to him. 

C. Doesn't matter. A jury of his peers found him guilty--and it wasn't hard given the evidence. This pardon is just spiteful culture-war politics. Abbot is releasing a murderer (and groomer) into society to cynically burnish his culture warrior credentials.

Ah yes...Garrett Foster...was pointing an AK47 at Perry.

Meh...ya gits wut ya pays fer. 

Again, false. Per witness accounts and Perry's own account 

“I believe he was going to aim it at me,” said Perry, “I didn’t want to give him a chance to aim at me, you know.”

The guy with an expressed intent to murder protesters, who drove through a red light into a crowd, and who tried to defend his actions by claiming to have been texting while driving was not the reckless one?🙄

Let me ask you something: Let’s say your a Canadian trucker, protesting in the streets of Ottawa, standing peacefully among a crowd of other truckers in the street, and some liberal motherfcker drives his car straight at you, barely misses you, then jumps out of his car carrying a gun?  Is THAT GUY defending himself against YOU, or are YOU defending yourself against HIM? On top of that, the guy had just texted his buddy, saying that he was going to go out and kill one of those truckers.   Who is the attacker and who is the defender?

If neither of them were armed, no one would have died.

A. Just saying false doesn't make it so. Your comment about running a red light doesn't make what I said false. Also, his running a red light was basically a rolling stop on a right-hand turn. It's something 99% of everyone in the world does when making right turns... 

B. Foster was part of an illegal protest blocking the streets, which stopped Perry from freely traveling. 

C. And a Pardon Board and Governor pardoned him. 

My point was quite simple and still true: When the left supports lawlessness in the streets like this, be prepared for the consequences. When you participate in lawlessness like this, carrying a rifle in a threatening way... be prepared for the consequences.

Maybe... maybe not. There are plenty of videos of violent mobs of people surrounding cars and dragging the driver out and beating them.

I looked at some articles about the case and I don't see anything that said he was going to kill protestors. He did say he would shoot looters.

If neither of them had threatened anyone, no one would have died. If Obama and the democrats hadn't stoked the flames of race war, no one would have died.

We can play the blame game and the what if game all day long. The fact that the jack wagon chose to point his gun at another armed man made him a viable and legal target.

Dead.

drives his car straight at you,

No car needed. Just the fact that someone is stupid enough to still be a liberal in 2024 qualifies them for Advanced MAID.

Who is the attacker and who is the defender?

TBH, Americans in general are paying a huge price for all of this political division. 

It's only fair if they settle this like real men, on channel 12, in a gladiator deathmatch. Or maybe PPV. 

There shouldn't be any of these global-warming cars and guns involved either, because that's just irresponsible. Just morningstars, pickaroons, franciscas, and other fun stuff, that drives up ratings.

Well, maybe Rittenhouse can have a gun, because he's a 4kin American Hero.

Ok so he was waving a gun around and got shot...in Texas.

The fact that you choose to believe LIES does not make them facts. Perry is quoted as saying HE BELIEVED the weapon WOULD BE POINTED at him.

His belief does not make it a threat.

Thanks for admitting you're an unserious TROLL.

Its pretty simple. If you threaten someone with a gun.. they are going to react. Run away, attack you, shoot you, something. No one is going to simply bow down in the face of a threat. 

It's pretty simple that you're ignoring the posted evidence that the only "threat" was a belief on Perry's part that a threat would materialize.
