The shooting death of Florida teenager, Trayvon Martin has sparked outrage all over the country, even on the House floor.

Wednesday, an Illinois congressman was kicked out for wearing a hoodie as he addressed his colleagues.

Democrat Bobby Rush was told to leave the floor because hoodies violated the House dress code. Rush said this story means a lot to him because his son was gunned down in 1999.
