Geraldo Rivera: Hoodie responsible for Trayvon Martin's death

Thank you Geraldo for saying what we all know is true. Victims are the ones to blame. Like Rivera tweeted yesterday 'His hoodie killed Trayvon Martin as surely as George Zimmerman'. I just hope my kids take this to heart. And my sister.

Then, of course, was Geraldo Rivera's comments, in which he said Zimmerman should be prosecuted, but Martin made himself a target by wearing a hoodie. Rivera earned a strong rebuke for the remarks. Thus far, things are moving, if somewhat slowly.

I hope someone on Msnbc covers Geraldo Rivera's comments about Trayvon. He said the hoodie was as responsible for the death as Zimmerman. This is the equivalent of rapists blaming the victim because "look at what she was wearing, she was asking for it.
