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.

It's no different than tying a piece of non functioning colored cloth around your neck and wearing a jacket in the summer time and you see that shiat ALL OVER DOWNTOWN AREAS across the country .... b/c white upper class males have decided it's what's right.

TreeHugger: 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!

I'm skeptical of that claim.  I see a great deal of white and latino men as well.  I might believe 50-60% black, but I just don't buy that it's a "black" thing or that it's racism.  Stupid? yes.  Racist? no.

Panatheist: so what is the legal difference between boxer's and shorts?


One is pluralized with an apostrophe, the other isn't?

It isn't the same at all. If I choose to wear a light, unstructured, unlined blazer in the summer, it is my prerogative and does not expose any of my underclothes. If some idiot chooses to expose his knickers in front of my, my family, and god knows how many kids, that's offensive. No one wants to see your knickers, and it's no better than simply wandering around in just your knickers.

Also: Going into a meeting of any kind with your knickers exposed? That'll get you laughed out of the room. Wearing a decent jacket? That's a mark of respect and maturity.

/Also has a problem with parents that parade their children around in just diapers
//My lawn
///Get off it

I don't give a rat's ass if there is one. Wear your farking pants at a reasonable level--preferrably one that covers your ass--and you won't have any problem from me.

Are we seriously legislating what kind of clothes people can wear now? Seems like it's time to drop the pretense of being a "free country."

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.

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.

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