Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) slammed Travis County District Attorney José Garza after a grand jury convicted Army Sgt. Daniel Perry of murder for killing an armed Black Lives Matter protester in self-defense during the George Floyd riots in 2020.
“Self-defense is a God-given right, not a crime,” Paxton told Fox News on Saturday. “Unfortunately, the Soros-backed DA in Travis County cares more about the radical agenda of dangerous Antifa and BLM mobs than justice.”
“This week has shown us how rogue prosecutors have weaponized the judicial system,” AG Paxton added. “They must be stopped!”
Perry had been working as a ride-share driver when he took a turn down a street in downtown Austin that was blocked by BLM rioters.
