    No kidding.

    I can see it now... "We arrested him because he was wearing a hoodie, and naturally we thought he was about to commit a crime."
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I say no.It is none of the government's damn business what I look like in public.Sure if I am testifying in court,at bank, getting a driver's license or some other similar thing my identity should not be concealed.


    Will the no hood law apply to the Klan members too?

    WTF? Freedom includes being told what to wear? It seemed to me the US was 13 years in Afghanistan to end governments who force people to wear ****, now it's to prevent crime.

    Oh yeah...pardon me while I have a laughing fit

    Don't forget to outlaw gloves, as they conceal fingerprints.

    Oklahoman politics is an utter joke. No, obviously, as I support freedom of expression.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    There is already a law on the books regarding Klan members if they are committing a crime while being disguised. It has been around since the 1920s.

    OSCN Found Document:Masks and Hoods - Unlawful to Wear - Exceptions

    It shall be unlawful for any person in this state to wear a mask, hood or covering, which conceals the identity of the wearer during the commission of a crime or for the purpose of coercion, intimidation or harassment; provided, the provisions of Section 1301 et seq. of this title shall not apply to the pranks of children on Halloween, to those going to, or from, or participating in masquerade parties, to those participating in any public parade or exhibition of an educational, religious or historical character, to those participating in any meeting of any organization within any building or enclosure wholly within and under the control of said organization, and to those participating in the parades or exhibitions of minstrel troupes, circuses or other amusements or dramatic shows. Any person, or persons, violating the provisions of this section, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not less than Fifty Dollars ($50.00) nor more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), or by imprisonment in the county jail for a period of not exceeding one (1) year, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Actually, according to the article, it was originally put in place to specifically apply to the KKK.

    Doesn't matter either way since you can always unmask the criminal after you shoot him dead.
