Do you agree with Geraldo's comments on Trayvon Martin?

Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman

I get what Geraldo is trying to say, but at the same time a hoody doesn't give someone the right to kill you. If that is the case then we no longer live freely they might as well start a dress code for the whole country. They are taking our freedom of expression and it is a very messed up situation. People should stop and think even if Trayvon got in trouble at school or home he is still a child and thats what kids do. It does not give anyone the right to take an innocent life hoodie no hoodie weed no weed. Theses folks saying Zimmerman was justified in what he did would not be saying that if it was them laying on that ground like a slaughtered animal because you are black with a hoodie on reaching in your pocket. Let's be real people .

Unfortunately I think that it is true...
( I do not say that I am correct or not ) but it appears that the hood signifies someone hiding itself from some body or some thing. During the Second World War The Capuccino Brothers (Catholics) were not allowed to use their hoods. The reason given by the Nazis was that the hood had been used by the enemies causing them many problems.

Of course, Geraldo uttered his inanities about “hoodies� on Fox News – which is slightly right of Stalin -- and which boasts other such literary luminaries as Sarah Palin, as contributors. As such, his ex parte, insensitive comments are meant to appeal to dull 3rd graders (Fox’s target demographic). Here’s the only fact we need to know: Trayvon was killed because he crossed paths with George Zimmerman, a neighborhood-watch-cop wannabe with a police record. Zimmerman, who had already aroused suspicion for past profiling, called police the night he spotted Trayvon and was told to break off his surveillance of this youth. He didn’t. And, driven perhaps by some form of delusional psychopathy, he killed an innocent, unarmed boy. “Stand Your Ground� was always a “solution in search of a problem� – perpetuated by gun lobbyists and NRA freaks; violent crime has been declining without such draconian measures.
