    The mayor proposed a band on hoodies and baseball cap to reduce crime in the city; Ooo...while I'm here I might as well submit a proposal for a pay raise too.

    Ban it all,ban everything,make it illegal to wear any sort of hat,jacket,coat, all in the name of reducing crime.

    Thats a TLA if there ever was. Perhaps the mayor would want to ban rope as well after someone ties him upside down and lets him hang from a lightpost...to give him time to rethink his proposal.

    If I'm gonna rob you I'd better remember to take my cap off before I come in the store so the camera can get a good shot of me. Yeah, that sounds like a no brainer. What next, a national dress code? Another stupid law means another right lost. You can't criminal proof society no matter how many dumb laws you dream up.

    Well let's see...I could no longer wear any of my Harley hoodies or my Harley "baseball" caps. And all the little leaguers, girls softball teams, and the HS baseball teams are just plain going to have to figure out something new to wear! And all the coaches too! What a doofus! That mayor should get a pay cut, not a pay raise! Yah, that's really "thinking outside the box"! I consider it not thinking at all!!!! Open mouth and insert foot before engaging brain!

    Well, I say we ban all clothing, that way criminals have nowhere to hide their weapons, or their stolen goods. Carrying a cell-phone may be a little difficult though.

    As someone who wears a hooded sweatshirt occassionally, and a baseball cap often, I also think that the proposal is ludicrous. More people wear headwear that are not criminals. At least at this time we have more honest people than citizens.

    We aren't talking about a dress code for a business or a school here. Outside of work and non-post 12th grade schools I think people should have the freedoms guaranteed them by the constitution.

    I wear a ball cap every where except bed and while eating. Even at work I was issued a ball cap as a firefighter...I must be evil and I just haven't realized it yet.

    Since when do criminals obey bans? There is a ban on crime, remember. This is the same silly, failed logic that leads people to try to ban guns and create gun-free zones.
