Legal Firestorm: Democrat AGs Call for Federal Charges Against Daniel Perry Amidst Claims of Justice Betrayed

Published on

Fourteen Democratic Attorneys General asked Merrick Garland, Attorney General, to open a federal investigation into Daniel Perry’s role in the July 2020 death of Antifa thug Garrett Foster, who was killed in Austin, TX. Perry was convicted of state murder despite the fact that a police report found he acted in self defense when Foster brandished an automatic weapon at his car while mostly peaceful George Floyd demonstrators were blocking it. On May 16, Texas Governor Greg Abbot pardoned him.

Letitia Letitia James is the New York Attorney-General who coordinated this letter. It demands Garland take action on “stand your grounds” laws. Perry was unable to move his car because an Antifa mob was blocking it. He had few options. James claims that these laws “encourage vigilantes” to attend protests with guns and be ready to kill anyone who exercises their First Amendment right. She ignores the fact that Foster had brought an AK or knockoff to the protest and was shot dead for sticking it into the wrong man’s eye.

The Department of Justice has a vital role to play in holding those responsible for violating the civil rights of Americans accountable, especially when local or state jurisdictions refuse to. The Department of Justice, which has been using federal civil rights laws since 1964 to hold those responsible for hate crimes accountable, from the Klan members that conspired to kill three civil rights workers on rural Mississippi to the man who killed Heather Heyer at Charlottesville in 2017.

We urge the Department of Justice to investigate whether Mr. Perry has violated federal criminal laws, specifically federal criminal civil right laws. Texas law may give Mr. Perry an excuse to avoid prosecution by the state for his actions, but Texas law will not stop a federal prosecution of Mr. Perry for killing someone out of racial motives to prevent him exercising his constitutional rights.
