Governor Abbott Says He's Urged the Pardons Commission to Issue a Pardon to BLM Kidnapping Victim Daniel Perry as "Swiftly" as Possible

Daniel Perry was stopped in the road by a group of BLM thugs, who decided that they would declare their ownership of a public road, like bandits in the Dark Ages.

Daniel Perry was already illegally detained by these thugs -- falsely imprisoned, actually, per the letter of the law. They surrounded his car and beat upon it.

When one of the bandits -- a white man, as it turns out -- approached his car while aiming an AK-47 at him, which is assault with a deadly weapon (threat is an assault), Perry exercised his right to self-defense and shot the rifle-brandishing bandit.

The police investigated this killing and decided it was a clear case of self-defense.

But then a grandstanding Soros DA named Jose Garza won an election and decided to press the case against him anyway. Police accused the DA of withholding exculpatory evidence (probably including the serious felony rap sheets of the bandits who kidnapped him and threatened his life) and also of witness interference and tampering, to get the bandits to say what he wanted them to say to make his case.

An Austin jury just convicted Perry.

While Abbott does not have the power to pardon people himself -- a commission makes pardon recommendations -- he does have the power to request that they consider a case for a pardon. Which he has now done.

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is working "swiftly" to secure a pardon for an army veteran convicted of shooting a Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioter in Austin during the summer of 2020, he announced in a tweet Saturday.

Daniel Perry, a 37-year-old U.S. Army sergeant, was convicted of shooting and killing 28-year-old Garrett Foster during BLM riots in Austin in July 2020. Perry was driving in the state's capital when he turned onto a street where a BLM crowd had gathered. Foster -- who was reportedly armed with an AK-47 -- and several other protestors then approached Perry's vehicle. Perry's lawyers allege Perry shot Foster in self-defense after the latter leveled his reported rifle at him while Perry was still seated in his vehicle, Reuters reported.

A jury found Perry guilty on one count of murder Saturday after an eight-day trial, though sentencing was projected to be delayed until Tuesday.

Abbott, however, is working as "swiftly as Texas law allows" to pardon Perry's conviction.

"Texas has one of the strongest 'Stand Your Ground' laws in self-defense that cannot be nullified by a jury or a progressive district attorney," Abbott's statement read. Texas allows for the governor to make requests of the Board of Pardons and Paroles: Abbott announced he has done so and plans to approve the Board's recommendation for parole "as soon as it hits [his] desk."

In addition, Abbott declared he "strongly" supported House Bill 2640, which would require district attorneys to present exculpatory evidence in grand jury proceedings. "I have already prioritized reigning in rogue District Attorneys and the Texas Legislature is working on laws to achieve that goal," Abbott declared.

The Soros DA who pushed this case says it's "troubling" that people should be allowed a right of self-defense against the left's street paramilitaries. He wants to use the power of the state to backstop these bandits' non-existent right to stop and seize and assault citizens wherever they might find them.

And if you violate this non-right by exercising your real right to defend yourself against lawless brigands, he'll fake up a case against you and convict you of murder.

Travis County District Attorney José Garza hit back at Texas Gov. Greg Abbott over the weekend, saying it is "deeply troubling" that the governor wants to pardon Sgt. Daniel Perry after he was convicted of murder for shooting and killing a Black Lives Matter protester during the violent 2020 riots.

Perry was found guilty on Friday of murdering Garrett Foster, an Air Force veteran who was carrying an AK-47 during a protest in downtown Austin in July 2020. Attorneys for Perry argued that he acted in self-defense after Foster raised the rifle at him, while prosecutors alleged that Perry instigated the shooting.

"In this case, a jury of twelve listened to testimony for nearly two weeks, upending their lives to painstakingly evaluate the evidence and arguments presented by both the State and the Defense. After hearing from civilian eyewitnesses and expert witnesses, and deliberating for over fifteen hours, they reached the unanimous decision that Daniel Perry did not kill Garrett Foster in self-defense and was guilty of murder beyond a reasonable doubt," Garza said in a statement on Sunday.

"In our legal system... a jury that gets to decide whether a defendant is guilty or innocent - not the Governor."

Obviously no leftwinger anywhere would consent to a state of affairs in which AR-15 armed MAGA "protesters" set up a base in the middle of a city street and forbid anyone from driving on it, while they chant and protest that the 2020 election was rigged. Leftwingers would demand -- as Lindsey Graham and Steve Schmidt demanded -- that cops immediately descend upon such insurrectionists and "shoot them."

But when leftwingers do this, they demand that citizens comply with their orders as if they were the agents of the state.

Which, in a way, they are: these are the violent, armed illegal-but-protected paramilitaries of The Regime.

Governor Abbott says he always had a pardon in mind for Perry, but he didn't accept Tucker Carlson's request for him to come on the show to explain why he wasn't pardoning him. If he always had a pardon in mind, it seems like he could have come on and explained that.

Your weekly reminder that your corrupted "representatives" will not act as you have voted them into office to act, unless you subsequently force them to honor the promises they made to secure your vote.
