US Army Sergeant Sentenced To 25 Years

  • A U.S. Army sergeant was sentenced to 25 years in a Texas prison on Wednesday for killing a man at a protest against police brutality in 2020, setting the stage for Governor Greg Abbott to make good on a pledge to grant a pardon.
  • Daniel Perry was found guilty last month of shooting to death 28-year-old Garrett Foster, a U.S. Air Force veteran, at a Black Lives Matter rally in Austin, Texas.
  • The demonstration came months after the police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, in Minneapolis.
