Texas Gov Shuts Down Major Liberal Scheme

 

Even in the deep red state of Texas, Democrats are pushing a far-left agenda. Entire cities and counties have tried to undermine state laws that protect citizens’ rights. This has never been more true than in the case of Daniel Perry.

Perry is a former Army sergeant who was working as an Uber driver in 2020. He found himself being assaulted by BLM protesters in the city of Austin.

Thanks to far-left Democrats, the city had seen its police force defunded. Perry was forced to defend himself. A radical prosecutor convinced a jury to convict him of murder, despite Texas’ “Stand Your Ground” law. And now, thanks to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, the governor is giving Perry his life back.

From The Post Millennial:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a full pardon and restoration of rights for Daniel Perry, the former Army sergeant who was found guilty of murder for the fatal shooting of Garrett Foster during a 2020 Black Lives Matter protest while Perry was an Uber driver…

“… 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.”

Texas Gov. Abbott pardoned Daniel Perry and restored his rights after the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles recommended a full pardon. The board conducted an extensive review of the case. It looked at “voluminous files” as well as what transpired in the trial.

The board decided Perry qualified for a pardon, given the state’s Stand Your Ground law. The governor quickly complied, expressing thanks to the board’s thorough investigation.

Perry had been surrounded by armed protesters. He feared for his life and was unable to get away from the mob. He fired and then was fired upon. Despite the state allowing citizens to defend themselves in life-threatening situations, the far-left District Attorney accused him of murder.

It is not hard to assume this case was pushed by Democrats, in the hopes of undermining Texas’ Stand Your Ground law and gun ownership in general. If law-abiding citizens fear using a firearm in self-defense, because of this case, then they will not carry one. That, over time, could lead to residents fearing owning a gun at all, because the state could prosecute them for simply protecting their family.

This pardon nullifies that precedent and upholds the rights of Texas residents to protect themselves.
