On Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott pardoned Sgt. Daniel Perry, following a unanimous recommendation from the Board of Pardons and Paroles.

Sgt. Perry was facing 5 to 99 years in prison for fatally shooting a violent and armed BLM-Antifa protester in self-defense in 2020, after being prosecuted by a Soros-backed district attorney.

In statements on Thursday, both Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton slammed the Soros-backed district attorney.

“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 in a statement.

“Americans across the country have been watching this case in Texas and praying for justice after BLM riots terrorized the nation in 2020. Our right to self-defense is enshrined in the Constitution. Soros-backed prosecutors like Jose Garza do not get to pick and choose the rights we have as Americans, and I am relieved that justice has prevailed,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote:

Sgt. Daniel Perry was found guilty of murder and sentenced to 25 years last year after Soros-backed Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza sought murder charges for an act of self-defense during the 2020 George Floyd riots.

Daniel Perry, an army soldier who shot and killed an armed BLM-Antifa protester in Austin in July 2020 was indicted on a murder charge in 2021.

Perry’s lawyer, Clint Broden, argued that Perry, who was driving for Uber when rioters mobbed his car, was acting in self-defense after the Antifa-BLM activist, Garrett Foster pointed an AK-47 at him.

“It is important to note that the standard of proof required for an indictment is significantly less than the standard of proof required for a conviction,” Perry’s lawyer said in a statement.

A still frame from footage of the incident appears to show Foster pointing a weapon at Perry.
