So ... there are good hoodies? In Spain?

Geraldo Rivera set off an inferno with his comments, stupid as they always are whenever he opens his mouth, that wearing a hoodie is to invite trouble. 

Cartoonists quickly reminded us about the hoodie-wearing people of a few decades ago who made sure that blacks knew well where they belonged in the US.

And then today, I see the following photo in the news:

Eerie it looked.  But, guess what?  The photo of hoodie-wearing crowd is from across the Atlantic:
Penitents from the Jesus Yacente brotherhood wait to take part in a procession in Zamora, Spain, April 5, 2012.
 So, curiosity took over: what is the Jesus Yacente brotherhood and why this hood?  Wikipedia, sadly, is of no help!  And this one is all Spanish :(
