Shopping Centre Outlaws Hoodies

Apparently in the UK there's a big controversy about wearing hoodies in public places, including schools and shopping centers. It seems that people who wear hooded-sweatshirts are thought to be thugs. So I wonder what Adam Sandler thinks of all this?

Shopping centre outlaws 'hoodies'
By David Sapsted, Daily Telegraph
(Filed: 12/05/2005)

The country's biggest shopping centre has banned youths wearing hooded tops to stop anti-social behaviour.

The Bluewater shopping centre in Kent, which comprises more than 330 stores, yesterday brought in a "zero tolerance approach to intimidating conduct" after shoppers complained about groups of loitering teenagers.

Baseball caps and other clothing that obscures the face were also banned, to make sure those misbehaving could be identified on CCTV.

Bans on "hoodies" are becoming increasingly common, having been implemented in Folkestone, Merseyside, Corby and Kettering.

In January, two 15-year-olds in Leamington Spa received anti-social behaviour orders specifically banning them from wearing hoodies.

Transgressors at Bluewater will be denied entry or told to leave if they pull their hoods up after they get in.

I know, it seems ridiculous. What if you have your hood up because it's cold or raining?

Of course I'd like to see someone try to kick Bono out of a mall for having his hood up.

Weird, must be a UK thing. I barely go 48 hrs without wearing a hoodie. Our school's bookstore sells nicely made ones (that actually fit girls!) in all sizes and colors, even w/ different logos (like some that grandmas would like, some for the students, some for little kids, etc). Not only does a hoodie match any pair of pants and is exceptionally warm, you also have a HOOD and a HUGE POCKET all in one. What more could you want?

They could never ban hoodies in Michigan, we'd freeze to death. It's the end of May and I'm still wearing them...

The malls in my area don't even allow teens under the age of 18 in the mall without a parent. Thats fine with me because a lot of them were causing problems and just hanging out.

I love the little pocket/pouches in hoodies. Since my hands are always always cold.

Exactly. Not to mention at any given time I usually have chapstick, hairclips, money, and my ID cards in my pouch.

Now this rule I'd be in favor of, as long as I can wear my hoodie! I can't stand groups of obnoxious teenagers loitering in malls.

Unless I missed something..youths are still allowed to wear hoodies in the mall but they cannot wear them with their hoods up or wear anything that conceals their face/head like a baseball hat

i wore a hoodie in the mall once, and the sales people were giving me weird looks. the hood wasn't up, but i think it had to do with the fact that the design on my hoodie was a hardcore band's logo with blood incorporated into it and "kill a celebrity" printed on the back...and i was looking at camping knives

I wear a hoodie every single day. I have one in just about every color. I don't think I could live without a hoodie!

The high school I teach at is considering banning hoodies next year. ( suburb of Chicago) Totally stupid idea. The kids are outraged already.
