Let me fix this to say what I meant.
Criminals sometimes wear hoodies, but not all people who wear hoodies are criminals. Criminals wear pants too sometimes...
Sorry guys, what I meant with the
"To me = ignorant" commment was that the poster I was quoting above making the hoodie statement is ignorant! Haha! Sorry for the confusion.
I am wearing a hoody right now and wear one to the range 3-4 times per week. I promise you I am not a criminal.
Sorry my post was unclear. I love my hoodies and my two sons love theirs :)I have friend who wears a hoodie frequently. He's a graduate of West Point and a Gulf War vet. He's built and sold two tech companies and is worth tens of millions of dollars. I suppose you'd label him "ignorant" simply for the hoodie.
What's you definition of "ignorant"? Someone who deosn't dress like you?My son wears a hoodie almost everyday. He got accepted to Wake Forest and will be attending in the fall. Guess he slipped through the cracks.
Hoodie-wearing scumbag, here. Retired police sergeant, currently employed at a different government agency, drive a Chevy truck and wear a hoodie and jeans 90% of the spring, fall and winter.
If anyone is blatantly ignorant enough to think that hoodie=criminal, I can't imagine what assumptions they make based on skin color. Same kind of ignorance governs both mindsets.
My 17 year old son also wears hoodies most of the time. I'll try to avoid Adric22's neighborhood if I ever make it down to Fort Worth. God forbid he's the neighborhood watch captain.
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
The events last week exemplify exactly what I was saying in my previous post how you can turn a non event into a tragedy. While the Florida hoodie shooting may turn out to be legally justified, there is no doubt that in my mind at least that it was unnecessary. That an innocent man was needlessly killed murdered. Isn't that the exact opposite of why we carry? Don't we carry to defend life, to avoid tragic loss of innocent life?
This thread and what happened in Florida are prefect examples how we can create a problem when there was none to begin with. A problem that in turn can quickly escalate into a fatal mistake. A justified killing of another human being is a hard enough thing to deal with. Ask any soldier, LEO, or civilian who has been there done that. I can not even begin to imagine how horrifying it must be to realize that you have needlessly killed an innocent human being, especially a kid for no good reason. Even if you manage to escape legal and civil consequences you will still have to look your self in the mirror and answer up when you are alone in the dark
