HOODIES Laurie Taylor talks to criminologist Dr Jack Fawbert about a recent phenomenon and ensuing ‘moral panic’ generated by young people wearing hooded tops. What was it that made this simple piece of clothing into a symbol of fear? What was the effect of trying to ban ‘hoodies’ from public places? How did all the media attention affect the sales of hooded tops?
