Texas Gov. Abbott provides pardon update for Army sergeant convicted by Soros-backed prosecutor

A U.S. Army sergeant who was just convicted of murder by a liberal prosecutor in Austin, Texas, has learned his fate: 25 years behind bars.

Daniel Perry, 36, has been jailed for 25 years for killing an armed Black Lives Matter protestor during wild protests following the death of George Floyd. The victim, Garrett Foster, 28, had pointed a gun at Perry's car, leading him to fire back at the protestor, but that did not seem to matter to the prosecution, who relied on texts and previous social media posts to claim that Perry was some violent renegade just looking for a reason to shoot a protester.

In fact, Foster was "dressed for war" the night he was shot, wearing a neoprene vest under his shirt, and carrying a semi-automatic rifle, a club, and a knife. Perry, by comparison, was driving for Uber to earn extra money while off-duty and was wearing shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops. His defense team said he was "dressed for the beach," the Daily Mail reported.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) noted on Wednesday he's prepared to pardon Perry at his earliest opportunity; he insists he intends to pardon Perry 'as swiftly as Texas law allows."

"Texas has one of the strongest 'Stand Your Ground' laws of self-defense that cannot be nullified by a jury or a progressive District Attorney," Abbott said.

He added that he has made a request with the Board of Pardons and Paroles to free Perry, noting: "I look forward to approving the Board's pardon recommendation as soon as it hits my desk."
