Gov. Perry: ‘Our Justice System Is Colorblind’

Gov. Rick Perry would not say Sunday whether he personally thought George Zimmerman was guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin, but refuted charges that the justice system is unfair to minorities, saying that “our justice system is colorblind.” 
 
“The jury made the decision…the fact is that we have the best judicial system in the world,” Perry said on CNN’s ‘Face the Nation.’ “A very thoughtful case was made on each side, the jurors made their decision, and we will live with it.”
