This is so depressing it's kind of shocking.

Texas is making it quite alright to just...kill protestors.

Even with prior evidence that the shooter was going to do it, and without reviewing the case before the shooter is sentenced, the Texas Governor Abbott says, "Yep, he's free to go!".

From the article:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said this weekend he plans to grant a pardon to Daniel Perry, a man who murdered a Black Lives Matter protester in the summer of 2020 just weeks after posting on Facebook, “I might have to kill a few people on my way to work.”

Perry, a U.S. Army sergeant who was driving for Uber at the time, shot and killed 28-year-old Garrett Foster during a protest in Austin following the murder of George Floyd. Perry’s lawyers said during the trial that a crowd swarmed him and he feared for his life because Foster was holding an AK-47, and that Perry ultimately acted in self-defense under Texas’s “stand your ground” statute.

But evidence presented during the trial refuted Perry’s claims, and included private messages and social media posts where he seemingly fantasized about having the opportunity to kill people. “I might have to kill a few people on my way to work, they are rioting outside my apartment complex,” Perry wrote to a friend in June 2020, a month before he killed Foster. In another message, Perry wrote: “I might go to Dallas to shoot looters.”
