Sagging Pants = Jail

Sag your pants and bag yourself a spot in jail. Apparently, people think it is immoral and indecent and it has now become against the law in some states to wear your pants below your butt.

In Flint, MI, this clothing style is disgusting and disgraceful, says Gwendolyn R. Allen on But has anyone ever chewed on this thought? There are MANY more clothing styles that are "disgusting and disgraceful." If it is going to be against the law to sag your pants, it should be against the law for overweight people to wear shirts that don't cover their muffin tops; it should be against the law for women with huge breasts to wear shirts that show too much cleavage; it should be against the law for girls to let their thongs and ass cracks hang out of their jeans. I think these clothing styles are much more "disgusting and disgraceful" than sagging your pants. I mean most guys that sag are wearing boxers under their pants. People don't even have to look at exposed skin, unlike too much ass crack and cleavage.

Another thing: shouldn't police be concentrating on the more important criminals, like shop lifters, murderers, arsonists, bad drivers, etc? Now this is just another thing police have to add to their list and it's the smallest, most insignificant crime. I don't think it detracts from society at all. If you don't like saggy pants, don't look at it. It's as simple as that. If someone wants to sag their pants, let them do it and move on with your life. Don't sweat the small stuff. It's a book; maybe the people that made this law and are in favor of this law should read that book. Look it up. Plus, our jails are already full enough. We don't need to throw more people in there.

I've just never heard of a more insignificant law before and I can't believe different cities in states like Michigan and Louisiana are actually enforcing it. I think it shows stupidity, lack of a good economy (because of the hundreds of dollars fines), and lack of good leaders.

haha...i saw this on the news last night. when you have 3 of the top 10 cities with the highest crime rates, the crackdown has to start somewhere.
