A national debate over the killing of a black teenager in Florida spilled into the House of Representatives when Democratic lawmaker Bobby Rush put on a "hoodie" - clothing that has become emblematic of those protesting police handling of the Trayvon Martin case. The lawmaker was escorted out for violating a rule that prohibits wearing hats on the House floor. Rough cut (no reporter narration).
