Beware the Danger of the Hoodie

Kevin over at Smallest Minority posts about Britain's "battle" (if you can call it that) against antisocial behaviour- also known as violent crime. Of course, Labour doesn't call it that any more because violent crime is already on the rise. Can't have even more crime figures to add to that column, so create another category. Of course, this is not a new phenomenon, it's just that the country has had two full Labour terms with Blair saying that he's going to be "tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime". So far, there's been no improvement whatsoever.

Kevin points out that in an effort to combat these squads of thugs severe efforts are being taken- such as banning wearing hoodies- a ban which some would like to see extended to city centres. Drastic steps indeed- thugs are attacking and in some cases killing people, so let's...wait for it...stop them wearing hooded tops.

Gee, I wonder if that will work? Hey, Mr. Blair- are hoodies the cause of crime?

Strangely there's no mention of more police on patrol or actually, you know, prosecuting people for breaking the law. Perhaps that's too radical a notion.

BTW, no comments Kevin? What gives?
