By now you've probably heard the tragic story of Trayvon Martin—the 17-year-old Florida high school student who was shot by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman on his way back from a snack run to 7-Eleven. George called 911 because he thought he was "up to no good" and followed Trayvon against the dispatcher's orders. Trayvon was wearing a hoodie (it was raining that day) and was unarmed, but as George approached him, he pushed him to the ground, fired his gun, and killed Trayvon at the scene.
People have been trying to find a reason as to what would drive someone to pull the trigger on an innocent person, and this morning Geraldo Rivera told the hosts of Fox & Friends that his hoodie was partially to blame. Yep, you read that right, Geraldo thinks Trayvon's outfit choice may have had a hand in his death. WHAAAAAAT?
