Judge Sentences Army Sergeant to 25 Years in Prison for Killing Armed BLM Rioter in Self-Defense

U.S. Army Sergeant Daniel Perry has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for shooting and killing an armed Black Lives Matter rioter in self-defense.

35-year-old Perry was sentenced today after being convicted of “murder” for the 2020 death of a BLM rioter who pointed an AK-47 at him.

Perry was found guilty of murder last month and was facing anywhere from 5 to 99 years behind bars.

However, following Perry’s conviction, Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott vowed to pardon him.

At the time of his death, Garrett Foster, a 28-year-old white man, was violently protesting the death of George Floyd.

“The protesters were all around me, banging on the side of the car, hitting me with spray paint cans,” Perry told investigators, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

“One guy (Foster) wanted to talk to me.”

Perry said he rolled down his window to talk to Foster.

He said Foster said something quietly before raising his weapon and pointing it at him.

Foster was openly carrying an AK-47 across his chest.

“That’s when I got my weapon and pulled the trigger as fast as I could, and then drove away and called 911,” Perry told police.

Perry turned himself in to authorities immediately following the incident.

Abbott went after the prosecutor in the Perry case, District Attorney Jose Garza.

Garza is one of many prosecutors across America who is funded by radical billionaire George Soros, the Democrats’ largest donor.

“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,” the governor said in a statement.

“Unlike the President or some other states, the Texas Constitution limits the Governor’s pardon authority to only act on a recommendation by the Board of Pardons and Paroles.

“Texas law DOES allow the Governor to request the Board of Pardons and Paroles to determine if a person should be granted a pardon,” Abbott continued.

“I have made that request and instructed the Board to expedite its review.

“I look forward to approving the Board’s pardon recommendation as soon as it hits my desk.

“Additionally, I have already prioritized reining in rogue District Attorneys, and the Texas Legislature is working on laws to achieve that goal.”
