Gov. Rick Perry: ‘Our justice system is colorblind’

Texas Gov. Rick Perry refused to offer his own personal opinion on the George Zimmerman verdict Sunday morning, but insisted that the justice system is fair to minorities, telling CNN's Candy Crowley that "the justice system is color blind."

"The jury made the decision...the fact is that we have the best judicial system in the world. A very thoughtful case was made on each side, the jurors made their decision, and we will live with it."
