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.”

...mayore will have us registering our sneaker prints soon too.
afterall, the chief says anything to help stop crime (except actually lock up repeat offenders)

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
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.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

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.
Though defensive violence will always be a sad necessity in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men -St. Augustine
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.
How did the baggy/saggy pants ban go??
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
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.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. What a doofus the mayor is.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
