Greg Abbott is by no means perfect, just as Donald Trump, you, me, nor any of the rest of us fallen-hoomon types passing through this mortal plane aren’t either. He’s for sure done some things as Texas Governor I haven’t agreed with, and then again some that I emphatically have. This would definitely be one of the latter.
BREAKING: Texas Governor Greg Abbott To Pardon Sgt. Daniel Perry
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is standing up for Americans’ right to self-defense.
He just released a statement saying that he has recommended Sgt. Daniel Perry be pardoned to the Board of Pardons and Paroles.
He also urged them to expedite its review of the case.
Abbott said, “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. 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.”
As background, Army soldier Daniel Perry was found guilty of murder by a Travis County jury.
Prosecuted by yet another Soros DA, natch. Too bad nobody’s thought to off his worthless ass yet, but maybe someday it might yet happen—on which frabjous occasion the world will surely become a much better place for it.
Perry shot and killed an armed BLM-Antifa protester Garrett Foster in July 2020.
SGT Perry shot the BurnLootMurder/pAntiFa scumbag after said scumbag had pointed an AR15 directly at him, making it a FAFO-level Righteous Shoot™ all the way as far as I’m concerned. Good on Perry for returning a deserving waste of flesh to room temperature in response to a direct, credible threat against his own life, and good on Perry for having the cojones to stand up for the God-given right to do just that. As for the room-temp scumbag, piss on him; may he burn in Hell for a thousand years.
Us mere mortals understand.
I read a number of comment from haters that stated the Carlson show shamed Abbot into moving on the pardon. I found that particularly hilarious given the verdict came in on Friday and by Saturday morning Abbot is working the pardon issue.
I’m not a great Abbot fan, he’s a mediocre Gov at best, but given one day passed the hatred is ridiculous.
1) When the pardon is recommended to him, and he signs it, I’ll be satisfied.
2) If he would push the state’s A.G. to investigate the judge for impeachment, and the D.A. involved for disbarment, both of them on grounds of failing to uphold the Constitution of both the state and the U.S., I’ll be properly impressed.
3) Failing to undertake #2 with all due enthusiasm proves his primary motivation is being a spineless doucheweasel simply looking to grease his own wheel, whatever good he does to the victim of this malicious prosecution.
Doing good isn’t the same as being good.
1) Myself as well
2) As I understand it, in Texas, the AG cannot remove any DA from office, nor can the gov.* It’s possible there is more but I am not going to study the Texas constitution. It’s enough, for me, to know the U.S. and NC constitutions.
3) Maybe. As I noted I am not an Abbot fan, not by a long shot. But the ink should at least dry before people start bitching
*”Under the Texas Constitution (art. V sec. 24) and Local Government Code (ch. 87), a district attorney may be removed by a district judge, after a jury trial, on grounds of “incompetency, official misconduct, habitual drunkenness,” or “intoxication on or off duty.”“
I’m waiting for the day they arrest the people responsible for this travesty of Justice.
No matter what, SGT Perry has this on his record.
Not after a pardon. It is complete.
Let me rephrase that, it does not expunge the conviction record but it does restore the person rights. At least in the presidential pardon. I suspect it is the same for Texas state pardons.
So he still has the conviction on his record. That was my point.
Yes, that is correct. The pardon shows up with it however and any loss of rights are restored.
Your point was correct. I was thinking of the restoration of the persons civil rights, not the written record.
