Gov. Deval Patrick is weighing in on the Trayvon Martin case. The Governor says he was disappointed by the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.
The governor, a former head of the civil rights division of the U.S. Department of Justice, also said Monday that based on his understanding of the law, he believed the department's options in the case might be limited.
Patrick stressed that he was not in the courtroom and understands the danger of trying to second-guess a jury. But he said it was a ``chilling thought'' that a person's life can be taken ``by somebody who just thinks you don't look like you belong there.''
A jury on Saturday acquitted neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Martin, a black teenager.
