“Minorities who wear hoodies just asking to be shot,” says Geraldo Rivera.

The Gawker:

Minorities Who Wear Hoodies Just Asking to be Shot, Says Geraldo Rivera.

I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.

    911 systems being my metier, Fred, I’d like to compliment the operator of the Zimmerman thing for handling a damn fine call. With the whole call center lighting up, he asks the crucial question, “Are you pursuing?” Zimmerman is caught completely off guard, by it, and stupidly answers in the affirmative, thereby putting his own head in the noose, figuaritively speaking. The well trained ECO smoothly commands him to cease and desist, and Zimmerman verbally complys. I’ve worked thousands of calls, and listened to thousands more, and you simply can’t do it any better. The ought to pin a medal on the kid, non?
