Gov. Greg Abbott Wants to Pardon Sergeant Daniel Perry After Killing a Man During the Black Lives Matter Protest

Sergeant Daniel Perry was convicted after he was found guilty of killing a man on the Black Lives Matter protest. The man was identified as Garret Foster, a 28-year-old who joined the protest on a downtown Austin street.

Perry said he just acted in self-defense after Garret Foster and his girlfriend approached his vehicle armed with a rifle, and about to shoot him. But witnesses denied Perry’s statement.

The prosecutors presented some screenshots of Perry’s comments and messages on social media saying, “I might have to kill a few people on my way to work, they are rioting outside my apartment.” Another screenshot says “I might go to Dallas to shoot looters.”

Leaders Have Rallied Behind Sergeant Perry

Many leaders, including Gov. Greg Abbott, expressed their support for Perry and believed he was just acted in self-defense against Garret Foster. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton also expressed his support for the Governor’s decision of granting Perry’s pardon.

Garret Foster’s mother, Sheila Foster expressed his disappointment with the governor’s decision. Sheila said, “I would honestly ask just anyone, including the governor, if you’re trying to take a side in this deal, at least look at the evidence first.”

Sheila Forster added, “The governor is the most powerful elected official in the state of Texas. Nobody, including the governor of the State of Texas, should shut down the process of the rule of law — and it appears that’s what the intent is here.”

Sheila Foster will be in the courtroom on Tuesday as the trial continues.
