California schools ban masked hoodies
If you’re a student in California, you may want to reconsider wearing your LRG hoodie to school.
A number of high schools in southern Orange County are banning pupils from wearing masked hoodies for a variety of reasons.
These include the ability for students to conceal their identity and also for non-students to sneak onto campus.
“There is no way to identify who kids are,” Tom Ressler, principal at Capistrano Valley High, is quoted as saying. “Generally, we don’t think that is a good thing. It gives kids the opportunity to do something bad.”
According to the article, Sergio Magana, 17, a senior at Capistrano Valley, bought two masked hoodies after he saw some of his favorite rappers, including Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco, wearing them.
“They bring the style and we roll with it,” Magana said.
