FAKE BULLET PROOF
VESTS NOW IN FASHION

NJLawman.com
Sunday, December 4, 2005 12:21 p.m.

An emerging and disturbing trend in the world of hip hop fashion is the fake bullet proof vest or fake body armor.

Simply, it is a garment which simulates the shell of standard law enforcement body armor but is just made out of Velcro and fabric.

Recently reported by PoliceOne, evidence of this alarming news can already be found in stores and on the Internet.

The website Wearhiphop.com is selling the online for $29.99.

This particular model is called the 50Vest, and it's marketed with the rapper 50 Cent wearing it in a trademark picture.

The disclaimer for this fake bullet proof vest reads as follows:

Of course it's not real bullet proof . It is lastest fashion now-100% wind & water proof with mad velcro stripes all over the vest.

The absolutel stupidity of a product like this is obvious, and it's only a matter of time before it contributes to the death of someone wearing it.

In many states wearing body armor is illegal, so this will also lead to unnecessary confrontations between police and patrons of this garbage wearing it in public.
