A Profile of Daniel Perry
Army sergeant Daniel Perry was driving an Uber vehicle in Austin when an aggressive mob of Black Lives Matter protesters suddenly appeared and surrounded his vehicle, brandishing rifles against him and forcing him to fire upon them in self-defense.
Before Perry was scheduled for sentencing, new court documents were unsealed that revealed several racist memes he posted online, which the prosecution used as evidence against him and portray as being racist.
Early Life and Education
Daniel Peery grew up on his family’s diversified farm in northwest Missouri. While working there he learned real estate analysis from his father and eventually embarked upon a career. Later he expanded to invest in Silicon Valley property.
He has demonstrated an enthusiastic dedication to performing arts education and outreach. He studied movement-based acting at Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre as well as improv and sketch comedy at both UCB Theater in Chicago and Denver’s Impulse Theater.
At his trial, prosecutors called attention to social media posts which could be seen as racist. They asserted that it was wrong for an officer to share offensive memes and social commentary; such actions could potentially create division within his unit and the judge agreed with this argument.
Daniel Perry is an experienced litigator representing clients in complex commercial matters such as securities and corporate law disputes, mergers and acquisitions, insurance/reinsurance contracts and financial restructuring. In addition to court litigation proceedings, he regularly manages disputes out-of-court through alternative dispute resolution approaches such as arbitration before domestic and international tribunals.
At trial, defense counsel Hupp testified that soldiers in his military unit do not discriminate by race and view each other as fellow combatants regardless of race. He pointed to social media posts produced as evidence by prosecutors as racist memes or comments that may appear offensive; but insisted they weren’t meant as such by soldiers themselves. A groan emanated from courtroom audience. Although Daniel testified justifying the shooting incident by telling police why he shot, they refused to accept that testimony and charged Daniel instead with murder!

2020 was working as an Uber driver to earn extra money during his off hours when he was attacked by an angry group of Black Lives Matter protesters, many carrying rocks, bricks and sticks; one even possessed an AK-47 rifle.
Daniel thought the protester was law enforcement and rolled down his window, thinking they were police officers. A masked attacker then pointed his weapon directly at Daniel; when this occurred he shot in self-defense. Daniel claimed it constituted justifiable homicide; however the district attorney with a radical agenda decided instead to charge him with murder!
