Skip to comments.Hoodie' Wearing Gunmen Kill 1, Wound 5 In Bobby Rush's Ill. District

Former Black Panther Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Illinois, made quite a fuss when he donned a "hoodie" in the U.S. House until he was escorted out. At the time, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, "applauded his courage" for doing so. Meanwhile, back home in Rush's district, two men wearing hooded sweatshirts, or "hoodies," were the shooters in an incident that left one dead and five injured.
A congressman was removed from the House floor Wednesday after giving a speech about Trayvon Martin while wearing a hoodie.
In fact, during a span of six-hours Thursday night, 13 people were shot, leaving two dead in Chicago. The two men in hooded sweatshirts were identified as the shooters in the single more significant incident. It would seem it takes more courage to simply walk down the street in Rush's district, than it does to wear a hooded sweatshirt in the House of Representatives by way of a stunt in a bizarre tribute to a young man shot and killed in Florida during a shooting incident still under investigation.
13 shot, 2 dead in Chicago in six hours Thursday night
The worst shooting occurred around 6 p.m. Thursday when two men in hooded sweatshirts opened fire inside a convenience store in the 1400 block of West 79th Street in the Gresham neighborhood, police said.
One man was killed and five others were wounded. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 24. The gunmen fled in an SUV and police continued searching for them this morning.
There's also another report on that particuar incident here.

AZ had a black kid with a hoodie and a gun rob a pizza delivery guy.
Frankly I think the morons squealing about hooded sweatshirts are just as pathetic as the democrats. They’re standard winter wear around here and I’m not about to freeze because some cowards want to dance to the leftist tune.
It's like a wave of Mutant Zombie Trayvons! I sure won't be caught without my guns. Yes, plural.
I bet he looked like Obama.
Where was the Rep when this happened??
or did the perp look like Obama’s son??
link changed somehow...
It’s not the hoodies fault.
It’s the gun’s fault.
Now go pay your taxes. Your government really needs the money. :)
That took zero courage.
If he had advised his constituents to get an education, get a job, and to get married before having children, THAT would have taken courage.
Just one of obama’s sons.
You’ll find the evil SUV parked at the commie cottage in DC.
I wonder what the winter is like in Sanford, Florida.
nah that requires asking for an ounce of common sense.
I just find it hilarious Rush dons his hoodie and the next day, some old banger goes and proves him wrong with full force. This is why people are suspicious of people hanging around in hoods.
ou want to make a sweatshirt something nasy to"represent' some kid with a "tude' well go ahead and be bad, act bad, stay bad for all I care but do not expect me to condone your lame a##ed violence and racial hatred because of your misinformed BS. Go work in a sweat shirt shop and quit trying to make my clothing your gangster statement. I am not a part of the hate club, now please scram and show a little respect.Hoodie murders? Gads, now police wil be targeting me because idiots shoot people while wearing sweatshirts, GADS!
Okay two lengthy rants, sorry FReepers, time to help with a B-day party and blowing up about a hundred balloons. Maybe I'll use helium this year but I think youve noticed i have a lot of hot air to spare:>)

I know, just means the rest of us can’t wear that sort of thing because of its associations with the violence crowd. You cant even go for a jog anymore with a hooded sweatshirt because people think you are out to rob them.
This is sad, during winter, I wear a hoodie and are hoodies going to become the newly blacklisted clothing item like zoot suits were in the 1940’s or blue jeans in the 1950’s ?
had you read up, i posted a new link, breitbart changed the link.....
Picture #1...he’s just imitating his “dad.”
