    Number 2 gonna shout “White” first.
    Because he can se Number 3 is wearing “Black” hat. And Number 1 can see Number 2 and 3. It means that criminal 1 know that number 3 wearing Black and 2 wearing White. But criminal 1 didnt shout any colour. So It gives number 2 a clue that number 1 wearing either Black or White. Since then criminal 2 realize that he is wearing the opposite colour from criminal 3.
    Sorry about the english.

    The above answer is correct for the figure shown in the question. And only 2 and 3rd person can give correct answer in the above case . If the case is for two black hats at 2 and 3 then all of ’em can give correct answers.
