Soldier indicted on multiple charges in protester Garrett Foster’s death

| July 1, 2021

Last year Garrett Foster, an Austin, TX Black Lives Matter rioter, was shot and killed. Now, the alleged shooter has been indicted.

A Travis County grand jury has decided to charge U.S. Army Sgt. Daniel Perry with murder, deadly conduct and aggravated assault in the shooting death of Foster on 25 July, 2020. He turned himself in to the Travis County Jail and posted a $300,000 bond, according to his attorney.

Perry, an active-duty U.S. Army sergeant was working as a rideshare driver at the time of the deadly shooting.

According to his lawyer, Perry dropped off a rideshare customer near Congress Avenue before turning onto Congress Avenue near Fourth Street. Perry, who said he did not know protests were happening that night, found himself surrounded by a group of protesters. Several of the protesters allegedly beat on Perry’s car.

Texas soldier who shot protester indicted on murder charge

ACACIA CORONADO

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — An Army soldier who shot and killed an armed protester after driving into a crowd demonstrating against police violence in the Texas capital last summer has been indicted on a murder charge, authorities said Thursday.
Sgt. Daniel Perry, who was stationed at Fort Hood, was booked and released on $300,000 bail, said Kristen Dark, a spokeswoman for the Travis County Sheriff’s Office.

Perry’s attorney, Clint Broden, has said the soldier was working for a ride-sharing company and acted in self-defense after Foster pointed a gun at him. Broden issued a statement Thursday expressing disappointment in the indictment and confidence that Perry would be acquitted.

“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,” the statement said.

Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza said his office planned to request that Perry surrender his firearms, in addition to other conditions, for his release.

Foster, the soon to be room temperature rioter, was carrying what has been described as an assault weapon when he was shot.

    Another fucking woke prosecutor. The guy who was shot was carrying a rifle, approaching the car and pointing the rifle at the soldier.
    This is garbage from this asshat’s biography, “Real Justice PAC is proud to endorse José Garza to be the next District Attorney (DA) of Travis County, Texas (Austin). José has focused on winning justice for communities of color, working families, and immigrant communities throughout his career. He’s a former state and federal public defender, immigrant rights activist, attorney – and is currently Co-Executive Director of Workers Defense Project in Austin”.
    “He’s also led justice reform that ends arrests for low-level offenses and severs the arrest-to-deportation pipeline”. Because we all know that we don’t want to deport criminals from other countries who are here illegally.

      Seems to me that should be called Real Justice POS, Up North. Imma like SGT Perry, better to be judged by 12 than toted by 6. Where daHell is Judge Roy Bean now that Texas needs him?

      Thunderstixx has been telling us for years now that Austin is full of gun grabbin, power hungry POSes. Here’s your sign.

      Good luck SGT Perry, you gonna need it.

      • UpNorth says:

        Yeah, hopefully SGT Perry gets at least 4 or 5 intelligent folks who aren’t woke on his jury.

    • Hate_me says:

      If I understand the Geneva Accords (I really don’t), a foreign national committing seditious behavior or sabotage/assassination on our soil is not an illegal immigrant but an enemy spy.

      Arrest-to-deportation IS wrong. Turn or execute.

    Politicized prosecution.

  3. Skippy says:

    I saw video of this incident
    How in the hell do you get a jury to convict

    • Stacy0311 says:

      Well it’s Austin.

      First thing his lawyer should do is request a change of venue.

      As for Perry surrendering his firearms, he should store them in the unit arms room. That way he knows he’ll get them back when he’s acquitted. The most the DA could reasonably ask for is the firearm used in the incident.

      I am so glad I moved out of Austin almost a decade ago

      • rgr769 says:

        Plus, if they are in the unit arms room, there is no way the Soros DA can confiscate them. On the other hand, the court can make it a condition of his release on bond.

    “I am proud of the Corps of noncommissioned officers and will at all times conduct myself so as to bring credit upon the Corps, the military service and my country regardless of the situation in which I find myself. I will not use my grade or position to attain pleasure, profit, or personal safety.”

    The good Sergeant gets all excellences and a “Among the best” from me if I was his rater.

    How many bystanders got hit? Seems like that should make a fine bullet point.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      If that methhead Garrett Foster had done gooder at AnQueefa School, he’d probably still be virtue signaling to impress people that virtue signal over his death.

  5. Hack Stone says:

    Sergeant Perry will never be convicted, and District Attorney Jose Garza knows it. He just wants to fuck with this individual who was legally defending himself, draining him if any money that he may have to show those on the other side of the political spectrum that the Left is in charge, and they can do what they want with impunity.

    DA Jose Garza must have missed that interview shortly before the shooting where mostly peaceful rioter Garrett Foster was strutting around with his “assault rifle” and said that those who were not supporting BLM were “pussies”. It is intuitively obvious to the even the most casual of observer that Garrett Foster was the aggressor, along with fellow protesters, when they surrounded the vehicle and prevented Sergeant Perry from lawfully travel public roads.

    Two white guys with guns shooting at each other with one dead and the other likely to spend the rest of his life fighting charges and won’t possibly ever be able to own a gun again? Definitely a win-win.

  7. USMC Steve says:

    Keep in mind that Austin is libtard central in Texas.

    Then everything about this falls into place.

  8. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    This is one of those unfortunate moments where someone finds themselves in a situation that requires lethal force in self-defense but due to the politics surrounding the situation they are later charged with a murder by a dipshit prosecutor looking to establish a name for themselves at the expense of someone who should never have been charged in the first place.

    Here’s hoping the good sergeant is able to afford some actual justice.

    For those keeping score on the sidelines this is one of those moments where considering litigation insurance is a wise idea.

    I never had to use mine to defend this type of situation but I was sued four times(the whole board of directors was named) as a volunteer for a youth organization over parents pissed off about rules…it’s rather comforting when you get served to make a call and have an attorney get right back to you without spending a nickel out of pocket beyond your premiums.

  9. Old tanker says:

    Austin is just as bad as anyplace in the PDRK (peepuls demokratik repugnant of kaliphornya) or seattle , portland. It is grossly infested with morons who emigrated from other blue states to stain the state of Texas.

    • Berliner says:

      Ahh, progressive Seattle/King County Washington.

      Where a Somali immigrant, in 2010, boarded a school bus, demanded the driver inform his dispatch “that a national security incident was going on,” according to court documents, threatening to blow up the bus by suggesting she may have a bomb or a gun concealed in her loose clothing and call kids cowards for fleeing through the emergency door, all on video from 3 cameras. All this over “America’s relationship with Somalia” according to court documents.

      In present day, this person is making $130k a year as the director of the Equitable Development Division in Seattle’s Office of Planning and Community Development and running for a position on the King County Council with progressive endorsements.
