Self-Defense is Illegal in Texas
How a Soros DA convicted an innocent man.
“Your punishment for having a knife when they searched you would be very different from the thief’s. For him to have a knife was mere misbehavior, tradition, he didn’t know any better. But for you to have one was ‘terrorism.’” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago
Today a jury in Austin Texas convicted a former active duty Army member and part-time Uber driver for defending himself against an armed man wielding an AK-47. This prosecution, tragic for the innocent man convicted, is part of the broader attack on American norms by billionaire neo-Bolshevik George Soros.
During the summer riots of 2020, Garrett Foster was wielding an AK-47 and taking over the streets. He was warned by law enforcement that while open carry was legal, any reasonable person would interpret the way Foster held his rifle as threatening.
As jurors try to determine whether Austin protester Garrett Foster was pointing his rifle at Uber driver Daniel Perry before he killed Foster, a police officer testified he had seen officers warn Foster at previous protests that he was carrying his rifle in a dangerous manner.
Senior Austin officer Brent Cleveland said during Perry's trial late Thursday that Foster was "visibly and verbally not receptive" to the police criticism. Cleveland said he never spoke to Foster but had seen him carry an AK-47 in a strap slung with the barrel pointed down in previous protests. He told jurors that if Perry had raised the barrel even a small amount, it could be considered threatening.
Foster mocked police, and in one video when asked about his gun, replied, “People who oppose us are pussies and won't do anything about it.” While Foster is called a protester in news reports of the case, his friends have said he’s a fellow member of the Boogaloo Boys, which is a domestic terrorist organization that has committed mass shootings and other attacks on law enforcement.
Daniel Perry is a former of the Army sergeant who drove for Uber as a side hustle.
During the riots, he was caught in illegal blockages by protesters and rioters. Protesters claimed Perry sped his car up as he approached them, while expert testimony proved that to be inaccurate.
Testimony from a photogrammetry expert in the Daniel Perry murder trial disputed eyewitness accounts that Daniel Perry sped into a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters before he shot and killed Garrett Foster in downtown Austin.
“Mr. Perry starts out at 11.9 miles per hour, starts to deaccelerate, or slow down.” Several witnesses, who were at the protest demonstration the night Foster died, were called to testify during the first week of the trial. They recalled seeing Perry’s car drive forward into a crowd of protesters. The protesters, which included Foster, became “incensed” at the presence of the vehicle, a witness said.
Even protesters, who have a motive to create an alternative narrative, admitted that the psychopathic looking, AK-47 wielding Garrett Foster was enraged.
Crazed protesters and rioters began pounding on Perry’s car.
Alexandria Bills, who was an Austin police crime scene specialist at the time of the shooting, also testified Friday that she examined Perry's car after the shooting and lifted 24 sets of fingerprints off of it. Defense attorneys have said Perry was threatened by a crowd of protesters who surrounded his car and banged on it.
Foster flashed his AK-47.
Perry shot in self-defense.
A Soros DA Overrides Law Enforcement.
Multiple police officers spoke to Foster, warning him that he was menacing innocent civilians. Detectives concluded Daniel Perry acted in self-defense. That should have been the end of the case.
Until a prosecutor supported by George Soros finally found a case worth prosecuting.
Travis County DA Jose Garza was elected to represent Austin Texas due to funding by George Soros.
Garza’s behavior was so irregulate that it prompted a report by a law enforcement that accused Garza of tampering with a grand jury.
A homicide investigator with the Austin Police Department has accused the Travis County District Attorney of forcing him to alter his testimony to a grand jury in the case against a man accused of shooting and killing an Austin protester.
In a sworn affidavit, Detective David Fugitt wrote, “I firmly believe the District Attorney’s Office, acting under the authority of José P. Garza, tampered with me as a witness.” However, a district judge reviewing these claims said he didn’t see any behavior in this case rising to the level of criminal conduct by the D.A.
If you’ve followed these issues at all, you know that the left believes criminals should be able to roam the streets in freedom. Defund the police! Abolish prisons!
They also oppose so-called assault weapons like the one Garrett Foster was using to threaten and intimidate.
And yet here a Soros DA found a case worth prosecuting.
George Soros and other neo-Bolsheviks are using tactics seen by earlier revolutionaries in communist Russia. The term of this is anarcho-tyranny.
Bolsheviks released criminals into the street. Rapes and murders were common. Anyone who defending himself faced criminal prosecution by authorities. As Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn reported in The Gulag Archipelago, “Your punishment for having a knife when they searched you would be very different from the thief’s. For him to have a knife was mere misbehavior, tradition, he didn’t know any better. But for you to have one was ‘terrorism.’”
Anarcho tyranny is here. Evil actors want to destroy cities by enacting “bail reform” to free the guilty, and then tampering with evidence to enslave the innocent.
Self-defense is now a crime in Austin, Texas, and if you don’t watch it, you and your family won’t be safe in your town, either.
In the meantime, avoid blue areas like your life depends on it. (Because it does.)
