Wearing A Hoodie In Oklahoma Could Soon Cost You A $500 Fine


Oklahoma residents are concerned that a proposed bill would make it a crime to wear a hooded sweatshirt, or hoodie, in public on many occasions, according to local news station KFOR. The wearing of hoods or similar head coverings during the commission of a crime has been against state law since the 1920s, with the original intent of curbing violence perpetrated by the Ku Klux Klan. But the new proposal would also ban an individual from intentionally concealing "his or her identity in a public place by means of a robe, mask, or other disguise" even if he or she were not involved in a crime. Violation of the proposed law would constitute a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine up to $500.


What the heck is up with Oklahoma? If you wear a hoodie then you are trying to conceal your identity? Funny all the times I've worn mine to wasn't to conceal my identity it was because it was cool outside. So now all innocent law abiding citizens can't wear an article of clothing because these police state wannabes want to make it illegal. We need to stop electing crazy people into office.

So this would mean that you cannot hide the back of your head but what about sunglasses, hats, scarves ect?

How about a big beard, hat and sunglasses all at once?

Gotta love the exaggeration of some of you people. Obviously if you wear a hoodie, tighten it and walk with your head down, you're most likely doing something suspicious, unless it's extremely windy.

In the case of precipitation and extreme weather, I'm absolutely sure the law is voided.

In the case of walking around at night on a warm day, I'm absolutely sure the person is up to no good.

I think the Green Arrow should be exempt from this, however. (Joke)

This law should only apply to people entering banks. That definitely needs to be a violation.
But just in public is bull.

I often wear a hoodie but if in a busy area or approching people walking the other way in secluded areas I always take it down.

Also in shops and banks ect.

Of course you get a pass for religious reasons if you wear a Burka.
In my humble opinion, anyone entering a business for any reason should be required to openly expose their face, for identification and the security of the employees.

They can stuff that law up their Oklahoma hole.

I am the same way.
I admit to being apprehensive around people that have their hoods up in pleasant weather. It is generally 'hood rats' that wear hoodies in nice weather.
I definitely pull my hood off indoors, especially places of business.

Here we go more laws and regulations put in place because of the progressive mindset. Many think that when I say progressive mindset it somehow only limited to liberals.........The right has also been rotted from it's core. Both sides are pushing this failure of thought.




It is simple really.........The rights of the individual are key not the rights of the masses. Progressives are all about the rights the masses. And when people buy into that lie societies fail. Look back into history at the Weimar Republic. This social movement that was lead by progressives lead to Nazi Germany.

Progressive mindset? Do you even know what progressive means? Btw it was a Republican that proposed this bill and the right tries to turn back the clock when it comes to progress. So going by your logic the right by proposing this law is trying to turn America into a bunch of Nazis.

Progressive ideals put the rights of the masses over the rights of the individual. It really is that simple and if you can not wrap your head around or see it for what it really is that is OK.


And I will say it slower this time.........Both parties have bought into this mindset and has lead to a corporate oligarchy ruling in the US. Did you know Hitler took inspiration from the early progressive movement that started early in the 1900s. He gained power using these ideologies. He was in fact a social progressive and many of the things he did was for the greater good of the masses not the individual.

I also wanted to add look into the past and see the future.......Roosevelt.....Wilson. Look at how men like this viewed individual rights. Jefferson foretold of this 300 years ago. Fools leading fools that can not even see what is in front of them.






I will make it clear for everyone reading this leaders for the Democratic and Republican party have all bought into this mindset. Only men like Ron Paul stand against it. That is why he is so hated by both parties.


I will let the readers figure out who has a better understanding of what progressive ideals really means.
