FTA: "Under the law violators would face fines starting with $50 on the first offense and by the third offense $100 and 16 hours of community service work."


Let's all pray that the latter won't require their bending at the waist.

AcneVulgaris:

They can leave their pants behind

Sorry, I have issues.

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


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

jamspoon: [i103.photobucket.com image 480x360]

I remember getting refused service in a restaurant because my hair was too long. These lawmakers are the spiritual children, if not the actual children, of that owner.


And the sign said "Saggy panted freaky people need not apply"
So I tucked my pants up under my belt and I went in to ask him why
He said "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"
So I dropped my pants on the ground, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"

Nabb1: 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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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


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

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!
