Yankee Hats Are Frequently Worn by People Accused of Committing Crimes in New York

Yankees Hats: According to the New York Times, “a curious phenomenon has emerged at the intersection of fashion, sports and crime: dozens of men and women who have robbed, beaten, stabbed and shot at their fellow New Yorkers have done so while wearing Yankees caps or clothing … Since 2000, more than 100 people who have been suspects or persons of interest in connection with serious crimes in New York City wore Yankees apparel at the time of the crimes or at the time of their arrest or arraignment.” Because when somebody brandishes a weapon wearing a Mets hat, you know you could probably take them. Yankees hat? This cat means business and is not to be trifled with. Yankees fans have a certain reputation to uphold – mouthy, tough, easily-angered. Just hand over your wallet.
