Army Sgt. found guilty in BLM protester’s killing: report​

An active-duty Army sergeant on Friday was found guilty in the killing of a Black Lives Matter protester, The Austin Chronicle reports.


Daniel Perry was found guilty of murder in the 2020 shooting death of Garrett Foster at the end of a two-week trial after a jury deliberated the case for 16 hours, the report said. Perry is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday.

“We’re thankful for the legal team that represented us, and the jury, and we’re happy with the verdict,” Stephen Foster, the victim’s father said, according to the report.

“We’re very sorry for [Perry’s] family, as well, and we’re just glad it’s over.”

The shooting occurred on July 25, 2020, after Perry drove into an area of around 20 BLM protesters in downtown Austin. As protesters started slapping and kicking his car. Foster, who was openly carrying an AK-47, approached the driver’s side door and made a comment, and then Perry fired five shots at Foster’s chest.

Twitter geniuses don't understand Grand Juries or the difference between a grand jury (recommends indictments) and a jury trial (renders verdicts).

No Requirement that Prosecutor Present Exculpatory Evidence to Grand Jury​

Last year, proposed legislation was presented to the Texas Legislature that would require prosecutors to bring evidence that tends to exculpate (or clear) the defendant before the Grand Jury. In the words of SB 1492,Prosecutors are required to disclose exculpatory evidence, which is evidence that is favorable to the defendant or tends to negate their guilt. However, currently this requirement does not apply to grand jury proceedings. S.B. 1492 would mandate that this crucial evidence be disclosed to the grand jurors to aide in their decision.” (Original Author’s/Sponsor’s Statement of Intent)

This bill did not make it out of committee. Until future legislative grand jury reform laws are passed, the Texas Grand Jury is not required (and undoubtedly will not) hear exculpatory evidence when considering probable cause to indict an individual for a felony crime.
