Because those clothes define you as a murderer.... Stupid judgmental people these days
As a person who also dresses in all black and was defined as a "serial killer" by plenty of people, including my girlfriend, I've learned smiling at strangers in public goes a long way to fight stereotypes. Just be sure to avoid smiling at children -- protective parents are the worst.
@59 If you have a smile like that, you might as well wear a smiley face t-shirt with the caption, "Don't check under the floorboards, officer!" I suggest avoiding all eye contact. Sunglasses preferred. If you must smile, toothless. Life lessons for the off-beat with Mr. Concise is now in session.
65 - I'll thumb you up for that one. I worded it quite poorly, I apologize. I was trying to say judges don't judge quickly, because a judge who judged quickly wouldn't be a very good judge, as they might let that influence their final decision in the matter. I guess I was trying to point out judicial activism, and how most judges don't let such things influence their decision. It does happen, of course, but most judges don't succumb to it. Again, I worded it quite poorly. Never been very good with conveying what I mean with words. My apologies again. I understand why I've been down voted haha.
Some people... I can see how it would be a gut reaction, but to get the guy thrown out?
Well fuck them for profiling via what you're wearing. And fuck that crazy lady.
You should know that all bad guys wear all black. The good guys wear white. Haven't you seen any westerns?
The White Sox did the same thing with their "Good Guys Wear Black" ads. Also, and this is really going to show my age, cowboy actor William Boyd (aka Hopalong Cassidy) always wore black clothes and hats. Anyway, I think it's amazing how people can be thrown out of a place simply because one nervous person makes a scene. I know we're supposed to be vigilant these days, in light of possible terrorist attacks, but folks really do need to get a grip.
