Daniel Perry’s Controversial Pardon Sparks Outrage Amidst Texas BLM Riot and Garrett Foster’s Tragic Death


In the midst of a heated Black Lives Matter protest in Texas, a name suddenly made headlines – Daniel Perry. The young man had received a pardon from the state for his role in the tragic death of fellow protester, Garrett Foster. The news sparked widespread outrage and debate, leaving many wondering about the true implications of such a decision. Let's dive deeper into the story and uncover the complexities behind this controversial pardon.

The incident in question occurred during a BLM demonstration in July of 2020, where tensions were already high as protesters marched for racial justice. Amidst the chaos, Perry claims to have accidentally hit Foster with his car after he turned into a street that had been blocked off by the protesters.

The impact resulted in Foster's death, and Perry was initially charged with manslaughter. However, just a few short months later, the charges were dropped and Perry was officially pardoned by the state of Texas.

Naturally, this turn of events has left many outraged and questioning the motives behind the pardon. Some have accused the state of prioritizing the protection of law enforcement over justice for a fellow protester. Others have raised concerns about the possible political implications of the decision, especially given the timing of the pardon – just days before the US Presidential election. But perhaps the most pressing question is, what message does this send to the BLM movement and the fight for racial equality?

One could argue that the pardon sends a dangerous message – that individuals can escape accountability for their actions, especially if they are aligned with a certain political ideology or cause. It raises questions about the true motives of those in positions of power and the extent to which they are willing to protect their own. And in the midst of a movement that is fighting against systemic racism and injustice, this pardon only adds fuel to the fire and undermines the progress that has been made.

Furthermore, the decision to pardon Perry has brought to light the lack of accountability and justice for Black individuals in America's criminal justice system. Many have pointed out the stark contrast between Perry's pardon and the countless instances where Black individuals have faced severe consequences for much less severe offenses. It highlights the ongoing issue of systemic racism and the urgent need for reform within the justice system.

In conclusion, the pardon of Daniel Perry has sparked a contentious debate about the true priorities and values of the state of Texas. It has reignited discussions about the fight for racial equality and the importance of accountability and justice for all individuals, regardless of their race or political beliefs.

As the nation continues to grapple with issues of systemic racism and injustice, this decision serves as a reminder that there is still much work to be done. Let us hope that this incident serves as a catalyst for positive change and a step towards a more just and equitable society.

  1. This is the kind of miscarriage of justice that pardons should be used for, not for having political connections or donating to someone’s campaign. Great job governor Abbott.

  2. Justice for Mr. Perry! Kudos to Texas Governor Abbott for having the balls to stand up for the rule of law — not mob rule. Pointing a loaded gun at someone is considered to be a deadly threat in almost all jurisdictions in America. Shooting that threat is considered ‘self-defense’ in almost all U.S. jurisdictions. 2020 witnessed an evil turn in American justice when politics overruled existing laws and the Constitution. Selective prosecutions based upon political agendas have almost destroyed the American system of justice. Hopefully, instances such as this and others (Rittenhouse, Trump, et. al.) will bring back law and order to our country.

  3. Clearly this is a radical left publication that wrote this article. The man was defending himself legally. I would have done EXACTLY as he did. Point a loaded gun at me and I will do everything in my power to take you out. Period.

  4. It is sad to see all of this turmoil here in America, long past are the days when people respected each other and worked together in harmony. I remember working on the farm alongside anyone who wanted to work was allowed no race, no injustice, everyone was treated with respect man, woman or child, nothing but hard work and sharing and caring for each other. I was taught to say Mr. and Mrs. to everyone regardless of anything else and to show that respect or suffer the consequences (Trip to the wood shed). Shame we can not go back to that level of caring for our fellow man / women.

  5. Protesters marched for racial justice ?
    Are you braindead?
    They was and is a group of Paid thugs !
    They broke the laws of the land , should have been warned ,Once, then ALL.Arrested .

  6. First of all, I don’t care what race, nationality or category you fall in; you point an AK47 at me and I felt very threatened I would shoot too. Word to the wise; DONT point a gun at someone and think they won’t react…especially in Texas, almost everyone carries.

  7. The person who wrote this article is an uninformed idiot or deliberately withholding crucial information such as the protest he shot was armed with a rifle and Daniel feared for his life and the death was NOT due to Daniel hitting him with his car.

  8. I served in the Marine Corps for 12 years. I served with every race and religion. There were
    always little spits here and there between people but nothing that could be considered racial.
    I went to war with all of the above. The problem is that people are listening to the little bit
    of news that actually gets broadcasted and don’t think about “what is the whole truth”. I grew
    up like David, everyone deserves respect until they don’t. I own a business and hire based on
    the willingness to learn, get along with others, and have a positive attitude. Agreeing with
    David once again, respect is something that seems to be a thing of the past. It takes all kinds
    of people to make this machine run smoothly.
