On Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott bestowed a complete pardon upon an individual convicted in a Democrat county for the fatal shooting of an AK-47-wielding Black Lives Matter protester who approached his vehicle.

Daniel Perry, a sergeant in the United States Army, aged 35, received a 25-year prison term subsequent to his conviction in Travis County on a murder allegation associated with the aforementioned incident.

Perry maintained his position that he acted in self-defense and promptly dialed 911 and surrendered to law enforcement following the incident.

As stated in an affidavit, District Attorney Jose Garza, whose campaign received substantial financial support from billionaire Democratic megadonor George Soros, engaged in “criminal behavior” in the case, according to David Fugitt, the primary investigating detective.

“The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles conducted an exhaustive review of U.S. Army Sergeant Daniel Perry’s personal history and the facts surrounding the July 2020 incident and recommended a Full Pardon and Restoration of Full Civil Rights of Citizenship. Among the voluminous files reviewed by the Board, they considered information provided by the Travis County District Attorney, the full investigative report on Daniel Perry, plus a review of all the testimony provided at trial.” Abbott said in a new statement.

“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. I thank the Board for its thorough investigation, and I approve their pardon recommendation.” he continued.
