Great, now law enforcement officers are fashion police.

This is a waste of resources, as well as being dangerously close to a Constitutional issue.

I'm all for idiots wearing saggy pants. Makes IDing losers easy.

I believe you can rearrange those four words in any order and still have the headline make sense.

''It's a good idea to ban saggy pants, these young people are emulating people in prison that are available for sex,'' said Hornsby.

So we're off to a good stupid start here...

Violators would be those people who wear their pants below the waist in public, exposing underwear or what police determine to be too much skin.

It seems a little chilling that police get to determine, arbitrarily, what is "too much skin."

"In one year if it's not doing what we wanted it to do we will look into repealing it,'' said Hornsby.

Or until a lawyer is hired that is semi-competent challenges the charges.

Like seeing someone post on a comments page.

Whoops.  Dammit!

That's my home for you--violent crime was up in 2012 compared to 2011, lawmakers are robbing the public coffers blind, and we need a ban on sagging pants.

Go Terrebonne!

I thought 'jailin' came about because guards took belts away from prisoners?  It's really 'Hey, poke me in the butts!" ?

Wonder how many of the local teabaggers are on board with the government telling you how you can dress.

The belt thing is entirely to practical and reasonable of an explanation. It's far better to tie it back to gay sex, somehow.

Do young people still wear saggy pants? I haven't seen any around in a long time. The law should be more general. Anything that offends us old farts and is worn by youth we disapprove should be banned!

You are? That's good. Because I'm introducing a measure at your local city council allowing the police to fine you every time you're not dressed like Ed Grimley. Hope you're okay with that too.

Cuz their pants don't dance and if they don't dance then they ain't no pants of mine.


Sorry, I have issues.
 
2013-04-11 04:15:09 PM  
I say let them let their pants sag. It makes it harder to run from LEOs.

I've also wondered why the pants-saggers are always the ones wanting to pick a fight. How can you scrap when you can barely move your legs? Skirts provide more range of motion, FFS.

Some of them have switched to ball-crushing skinny jeans.

I find that trend equalling galling.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the town that passed this law by an 80% margin is also 80% opposed to any form of gun control based on 2nd Amendment rights.

Yeah, they do. Just yesterday I was walking along the sidewalk and the kid in front of me had his pants around his upper thighs, giving me a view of his tight-fitting, striped boxer-briefs.

Why don't women do this?

Next on the enforcement agenda.... accosting people out of their mobility scooters if they can actually walk.

Next week is the the sniff 'em and arrest them. Wearing to much body spray or perfume? Well we shall take you down to lockup for disinfecting.

All next month is the 'spit patrol'. Where people who are seen spitting shall be publicly flogged for spreading their diseased juices all about.

Next year will the start of the fat people wearing clothes that don't cover the belly. Purposely ripped backs of shirts will be a mandatory 30 days in lockup on bread and water and food loaf.

It's an institutionalized form of racism, which is supported by many supposedly non-racist people.  Just because you don't like the clothing choices someone makes, that's no reason to support authorities or businesses in singling them out.  It reminds me of some nightclubs where they ban basketball jerseys, sports caps and only certain kinds of sneakers ... the ones that those people wear, but the hipster ones are okay.  We aren't allowed to have "whites only" signs anymore, or exclude/arrest folks based on skin color, so people have had to get a little more clever to achieve the same result.

When people talk about how they hate the baggy pants, often it seems obvious to me that they are channeling their dislike for the person who is inhabiting the pants, who is black 99% of the time.  It confuses some folks when they see people who have a different subculture, different skin color, clothing, hair, and behavior patterns than what they are accustomed to -- it makes some people uncomfortable.  So they channel that discomfort into discussing the most obvious target (the pants).  Something must be done!  Call the authoritah!

The same people talking about "too much skin" will whistle with delight when a hot white girl walks by wearing next to nothing.  No similar penalty or prejudice will be applied for her clothing choices.  Just some fapping to the memory by the police chief when he gets home.  But then again, she's not considered a troublemaker who is flouting society's conventions, unlike the baggy pants crew (who are probably on their way to rob someone, and should be accosted preemptively).  Instead the girl is providing a sweet view of white skin for anyone passing by; what could be more American and mainstream than that, I ask you.

Seems to me like hip hop, rap music and gang style crap have been around waaaay too long. It seemed cheap, unimaginative and tired when MTV and Micheal F*cked Up Jackson first made it popular.

Still, I don't want the government determining how people should dress (beyond covering the naughty bits anyway).

I don't think it should be criminalized, but you look like a complete and total jackass if you walk around with your pants halfway between your waist and your knees.  I don't care what race you are.  You look like a moron and you probably are a total moron.  Okay, so it's a fashion statement, but that statement is "I am a moron."

"I am a moron who is purposely trying to offend you, and will get all puffed up angry when you give voice to that" is more like it.

Young women: look up "tight pants = yeast infections."
Young men: look up "sagging pants make it hard to run away from trouble or the law."

What if they just shed the pants entirely, but still wear the boxers?  This kind of social legislation is the parish board just asking for a cockpunch.

What with Louisiana being 4th or 5th in the rankings for fattest state in the nation as well in the top 5 highest percentage of people with diabetes, I'm sure we'll be seeing legislation pretty soon to tell the manatees walking around that they can't wear tube tops and yoga pants, right?
