On a side note... Mississippi? Really? The state that's dead last in... well, just about everything. Income, education, health care, employment, and so forth? Maybe if they could focus on something other than how people wear their pants and which Confederate general to name a street for next, they could claw their way out of the national cellar...
This is the logic that I don't understand....so if they were first in income, health care, employment, so forth, then it's ok to implement these rules, but because they are last, don't worry about it? What does income or healthcare rank have to do with a pants ordinance?

Well first off, there are no rules being implemented. None. The town has used taxpayer money to make and post signs to "educate" young men about a clothing choice. One which is not illegal.. So, yeah, it would seem there are better ways to spend taxpayer money .

Oh those kids want to wear their pants so low you can see their pink Hello Kitty underwear, it doesn't bother me. Heck I was yelled at for wearing a leather jacket when I was that age, in the 50's. This, like all things, will pass.

Mississippi is 38% African American. The town where this law has been put into effect is 62% African American.

Looks to me like they are addressing by first getting people to have some respect for themselves.

The Sign Law


It states that once a sign is posted requiring that someone do something, that its basically the law at that point.

Coming soon...a sign requiring that people actually read the news link in a post rather than responding to vague and/or misleading thread titles.

I'd be happy to see one that said to address the message instead of attacking the messengers.
