(inthehoodie.com) -- According to the In the Hoodie Blog, an Alabama city is considering a ban on masked hoodies.

A masked hoodie has a hood that zips to cover the entire face with cut-outs for your eyes.

Police in Mobile said they want the ban due to an increase use of the masked hoodies in robberies. 

According to the blog, there is already an ordinance in place that bans full-face stocking caps that cover an individuals face in public.  The new ordinance would include the masked hoodies.

The blog also states police are asking parents to remove masked hoodies from their child's wardrobe to keep them from being targeted as a potential criminal.
