Hoodie-Wearing Gunmen Kill 1, Wound 5 in Bobby Rush's Chicago District

Well ?

Did U.S. Congressman Bobby Rush make a "rush to judgement"
the other day when he decided to wear a hoodie right on the floor
of Congress ?

Maybe he started a new "fad" ?



Former Black Panther Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) made quite a fuss when he donned a "hoodie" during a speech in the U.S. House of Representatives until he was escorted out. At the time, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) "applauded his courage" for doing so.

Meanwhile, back home in Rush's district, two men wearing hooded sweatshirts, or "hoodies," were the shooters in an incident that left one dead and five injured.

In fact, during a span of six-hours Thursday night, 13 people were shot, leaving two dead in Chicago. It would seem it takes more courage to simply walk down the street in Rush's district than it does to wear a hooded sweatshirt in the House of Representatives by way of a stunt in a bizarre tribute to a young man shot and killed in Florida during a shooting incident still under investigation.

13 shot, 2 dead in Chicago in six hours Thursday night ...................

I don't like this giving hoodies a bad name dammit! Years ago when I was a teen my Dad wore a hoodie in the fall and I so admired him that I bought myself a matching one and wore it.

People were wearing hoodies before it was a fad.

The whole point Rush was making is that you CANNOT judge someone by the hoodie they wear. It is irrelevant. People wear hoodies for various reasons. Sometimes dogs wear them as a statement of protest.

Maybe the beginnings of the righteous Nubian uprising? Were the victims white-devil oppressors?

Are they playing out the plot of The Final Comedown?

Hoodies eh? Farking scum! only the scum of the earth would where one of those demonic mini robes. They are a sign of gang violence and all decent folks should be ready to blast a thug in one at the slightest provocation or supposition of evil intent!

This is hoodie phase is ridiculous, the worst part about it is people like you who feel the need to spread it.

I'm pretty sure the hoodie didn't commit any crime. Last time I checked, it was an article of clothing. Do they somehow have some kind of mind control mechanism in them that makes people break the law?

I wear one every morning going out to walk my kids to the bus stop and it hasn't happened to me yet. I'll be watching mine very, very closely with my stink eye "I'm watching you, so don't try anything funny" look. I'll report back if I suddenly feel the urge to shoot someone.

Starting a fad the OP asks .... read up ....

Delaware School Lifts Ban on Hoodies to Support Trayvon Martin


The William Penn High School will change the school dress code – for one day – to allow students to wear hoodies.

Students at the New Castle, Del., school will be allowed to wear hooded sweat shirts to school on Friday. The students have planned a silent demonstration in support of the campaign for justice in the case of the killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. Principal Jeffrey Menzer granted a request from a student leader who asked that a school policy banning hoodies be lifted for one day so students could join a national call for justice, the Associated Press reports.


The car radio this morning quoted a teacher there saying it was a 'teaching moment'.
:shk: damn stupid teacher :shk:
What they are teaching kids is that mob rule is more impotant than the rule of law.
What they are teaching kids is to be a part of the hype and spin.
Telling kids it's cool to join a protest, even if the protest is wrong.

They should be teaching kids that ALL people have rights. Trayvon Martin ... AND Zimmerman both .. and that jumping on the protest band wagon just because it's popular due to hype and spin is NOT critical thinking. dumb dumb dumb

Really??? Grow up. Clothing has about as much to do with the way a person acts as skin color, NOTHING!!!

Don't know if you've ever been out of the South West, but up here in New England, it gets pretty cold, and everyone, just about every single person busts out their supply of hoodies for the winter.

Seriously grow up.

I just read about that, but hoodies aside, check out Chicago crime,

Tracking homicides in Chicago

Chicago on Wednesday reached 100 homicides for the year—the fastest the city has hit this mark in at least seven years, RedEye and police data show.

Seventeen homicides have been recorded in the last week—including four each on Saturday and Sunday, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police information found.

Chicago has not reached 100 homicides in March since 2004, when the city logged 106 homicides before April 1, according to police data. The city reached 100 homicides last year on April 26, RedEye data shows.

Citywide, gunshot homicides were recorded in the last week in Auburn Gresham, Chicago Lawn, Englewood, Gage Park, Greater Grand Crossing, Humboldt Park, the Near West Side, New City, Washington Heights, West Englewood, West Lawn, West Ridge and Woodlawn, data shows.

In the last week, South Lawndale recorded three homicides, police data shows.

On Wednesday, a man was fatally shot in the 2800 block of South Kildare Avenue, officials said. On Saturday, a 6-year-old girl was shot to death in the 3100 block of South Springfield Avenue, police said. Three days earlier, a 19-year-old man was fatally shot in the 3000 block of South St. Louis Avenue, officials said.

Meanwhile, a 58-year-old man was beaten to death Sunday in the 3500 block of West Lawrence Avenue in Albany Park, police said.

Thirty-three homicides have been recorded so far in March. Police logged 22 homicides in March last year, RedEye found.


Also listed are the victims please take the time to read the names.

I think they're just telling kids it's okay to wear hoodies.

I wear hoodies all the time...and I am pretty anti-gun.

Stereotypes suck...and trying to spread them is disgusting.

No. The school stated it was directly because of the Martin/Zimmerman shooting.

The school has certainly taught the kids something .... jump to conclusions and
ignore the fact that Zimmerman could easily be innocent. WE DONT" KNOW.
The school is teaching mob mentality.
