Neither. Clothes don't commit crimes. Why punish those of us who like hoodies? I'm not a thug. Why punish those who choose to follow a religious code?

Punish the criminals.

This type of stuff basically states we're all gang banging thugs and the only thing stopping us from murdering everyone is the lack of quality hoodies.

I don't know about you, but the real reason I don't rob banks is because I just can't find the right pair of shoes.

How about instead we just ban stupid people. That would put an end to all kinds of problems.

Perhaps the real problem then, is dim metro lighting.

maybe they should ban glasses too. as they can obscure the eyes and interfere with a positive ID.

Hoodie's, veils, burka's, sunglass's, baseball caps all should be banned, they interfere with CCTV and facial recognition software. We need to know where your at all the time. War is peace. Slavery is freedom. Long live Comrade Obama.

Ban hipster jeans..
If I can't wear them anymore ain't nobody!

Why should anyone be telling people what they can and cannot wear? This really pisses me off, if people want to bloody run down the road naked then why should they not be allowe, are we ashamed of our bodies?

The only reason why we have such a stupid veiw about clothing is because there are one or two people at the top who dont like it. Well I say who gives a monkey if they dont like what people wear, its got nothing to do with them.

If we spent more time being freindly amd not alienating people the world would be a wonderful place. But there are people at the top who, when they dont like something they push it really hard in the media to get a few more people so they can pass a draconian law.

That, my good friend, is an act of a tyrant, plain and simple.

Wearing a hoodie when it's 70 degrees doesn't make you a thug. Wearing a bikini top to the mall doesn't make you a slut. A pocket protector doesn't make you a nerd. Of course people will still perceive you that way despite your insistence that these fashion trends are perfectly normal.

I'm starting a new trend where you wear your shoes half off your feet.

Trouble is there's loads of old folk who feel utterly intimidated by large gangs of kids loitering about with their hoods up, so yeah there's plenty of folks who would agree with the ban. Every Daily Mail reader for a start.

If they are banned I'm rather hoping people take up the day glo snood once more. You won't care about being mugged for laughing.

My hoodies include - 2 pink ones ... a gray one ... a black one ... a black ghostie one from Gettysburg. My daughters include - 2 with school name ... a black one .. 2 pink ones .. one from D.C. and a ghostie one from Gettysburg. My husband has 3 or 4 of them. The neighbors all have them ... Everyone has them. How on earth can hoodies be banned for the general public? It can't happen. They are 'Americana'.

I think we should all be banned from wearing hoodies, I also think we should be banned from wearing anything red as it might encourage anger.

I couldn't have said it any better than Flyersfan, Greeneyedleo and Neopan100 - these ideas about the banning of clothing or banning of handgun ownership are getting stupid. If you outlaw these things, then a lot of us are going to become outlaws. I have hoodies and guns and I'm an old(ish) white guy. It's not just the "inner city thugs" who own hoodies and guns. Sheesh. You'll end up with the "good guys" unarmed and cold and the "bad guys" will still have hoodies and be armed.


Maybe we should go with eNumbra's idea and ban clothing altogether! We'll all run around naked! I'm all for that one, but then there will be naked people running around that no one really wants to see naked.

That would be a good idea, but then who would run the country or hold public office? Stupidity seems to be a job requirement for the president, members of congress and the house, and most governors.

It looks like they might have to ban tshirts too!



Banning an article of clothing is pretty stupid. The clothes don't commit crimes, the people in them do. Like trying to ban baggy pants. What is the point of it. We have really lost our way as a society when we have got the point of banning clothing. Banning anything as a reaction to an incident is stupid. Burquas, hoodies, baggy jeans or anything else. If someone wants to wear them, who am I, you or the government to say they can't.

All a matter of location.

In situations where identity must be confirmed (like court, travel portals, etc.), then BOTH should be not allowed.

In all other cases, that should be up to the business itself whether to permit customers or employees on their premises with identity concealing attire.

Can I add banning the practice of wearing your pants so half your underwear shows? Seriously, these kids look like they crapped their pants. When is THAT fad going to end? Maybe the cops started it, so they're easier to catch after a crime?

Its far more comfy. Only one layer touching your skin. I cant wear pants unless my boxers are at least slightly above my pants line. I do wear shirts that conceal the top of my boxers so nobody knows.

For me its comfort,not fashion. Give it a try,its the only way to wear pants


But surely you dont really think the Government should tell us how to wear our pants. Or any other clothing for that matter. As long as there is nothing indecent I cant see the problem.

The identity thing I can see some sense in in certain situations.
