Sgt. Daniel Perry was found guilty of murder on Friday after Soros-backed District Attorney Jose Garza sought murder charges for an act of self defense during the 2020 George Floyd riots.
Texas AG Ken Paxton slammed the Soros prosecutor after Governor Abbott refused appear on Tucker Carlson’s show to speak on the case.
Sgt. 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 his client, who was driving Uber when rioters mobbed his car, was acting in self-defense after the BLM activist, Garrett Foster pointed a gun 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 statement said.
Shortly before he was shot dead, Garrett Foster was seen on video explaining he brought an AK-47 to deal with the “pussies” who oppose him.

A still frame from footage of the incident appears to show Foster in a posture that looks like he was pointing a weapon at the driver.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Friday said he is working swiftly as the state law allows regarding the pardon of Sgt. Perry.
“Texas has one of the strongest “Stand Your Ground” laws of self-defense that cannot be nullified by a jury of a progressive District Attorney,” Abbott said.

Abbott’s pardon authority is limited to only act on a recommendation by the Board of Pardons and Paroles.
It is unclear how long this process will take.
““The board will be commencing that investigation immediately” and will report to the governor with recommendations when it’s done, board spokesperson Rachel Alderete said Monday. The board didn’t immediately say how long the inquiry could take or whether an appeal process is required ahead of a recommendation.” CNN reported.
