opinion about the outlawing of hoodies for some people.
Sure, a law already exists about wearing hoods or masks in the commission of a crime, and this is OK law, and I am not an Oklahoman, so why should I care? But it just so happens that, like people will, I sometimes wear a hoodie to keep warm, because winter winds blow right on a person's face, and it smarts. I don't wear a hoodie myself because I intend to do an illicit thing. I just don't want the rude, cold winds of winter to smack the bejesus out of my face.
This isn't to say I have no opinion about Robin Hood, Zorro, or any other masked or hooded figure. I am not one of the Carbonari, and if I was, I would lie to you. But I will simply point out that many people have worn hoods for a variety of reasons, including warmth and comfort, without being in the least culpable of any crime. So I dislike the idea that people wearing hoods to keep warm might get a form of hassling just because.
