Posh Hoodies R OK?!

The absurdity of the moral panic about hoodies hit home when a 47-year-old nurse was kicked out of a shop for refusing to remove hers.

What an outrage! She's middle aged! And cares for sick people! And what's more - her hoodie was posh! It cost nearly £100!

Oh, how I was on her side! You tell 'em, girl! Then she went and spoiled it all by saying "I could understand if I was a youth". Right ... so persecuting poeple on the grounds of their clothing is OK if you are under a certain age? It's fair play to assume someone's up to no good if they're not much past puberty? What - no-one over the age of 21 has ever shoplifted then, no?
