Today, Fox News' resident fashion expert Geraldo Rivera finally cut through the noise and got to the heart of why unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot in the chest in February: He was wearing a hoodie. "I’ll bet you money, if he didn’t have that hoodie on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way," he said on Fox & Friends. "You have to recognize that this whole stylizing yourself as a 'gangsta'… You’re gonna be a gangsta wanna? Well, people are going to perceive you as a menace." I mean, duhh!

It's pretty clear: wear a hoodie, you're a menace who someone will fear. As a service to other people in society flirting with death in these drawstringed, cottton garments, we've identified them by name so they can ask themselves if wearing a hoodie is really worth losing a life:
