George Zimmerman Murder Investigation: Geraldo Rivera Say He ‘Was Right About the Hoodie’ on Fox & Friends in the Shooting Death of Trayvon Martin
On Fox News this morning Geraldo Rivera told ‘Fox and Friends’ that he did not mean to brag, but he was going to do so any how. Rivera stated that after all the criticism and ridicule he received after making comments that Trayvon Martin was dead because he was wearing a “hoodie” … He was right about the hoodie. As it turns out from the documents released yesterday, George Zimmerman did not pursue Martin because he was black, he followed him because he was wearing a hoodie and was dressed in similar manner to other individuals who had previously broke into homes in his community.
From The Blaze:
Fox News host Geraldo Rivera on Friday used Chicago‘s soaring murder rate to say he was right earlier this year in saying Trayvon Martin’s shooting death could be traced back to the teen’s hoodie.
“I was right about the hoodie, wasn’t I?” Rivera on “Fox & Friends.” “I hate to brag, but I got criticized by every pundit in America when I said Trayvon Martin would be alive today but for the fact that he was wearing thug wear – he was wearing the hoodie.”
He continued, “Turns out now we look at George Zimmerman’s interviews with the police: He didn’t profile Trayvon Martin because he was black, he profiled him because he was wearing a hoodie, was a strange kid, didn’t recognize him, wearing the same garb that had been worn by previous perpetrators of house break-ins in his community.”
