Geraldo Rivera: Trayvon Martin’s Hoodie Sweatshirt as Guilty as George Zimmerman

As protests continue in Sanford and all across Florida after the killing of Trayvon Martin, Geraldo Rivera dropped by Fox & Friends to place the blame for the incident where he said it really belongs: on Martin’s hooded sweatshirt.

“I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was,” said Rivera. “I’ll bet you money: If he didn’t have that hoodie on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way.”

Thousands attended a rally in Sanford Thursday, where civil rights leader Al Sharpton spoke, saying, “We cannot allow a precedent when a man can just kill one of us … and then walk out with the murder weapon. We don’t want good enough. We Want George Zimmerman in court with handcuffs behind his back.”

Fox & Friends hosts also seemed to criticize a “Million Hoodie March” earlier in the week in New York that was attended by Martin’s parents. More protests are planned for today and over the weekend.
