It's a very slippery slope; according to "legend" (??) the "condition" originated in the custodial system, where prisoners weren't allowed to retain their belts because they might be used to hang themselves; and a number of prisons (so I am told) use trousers with elastic waists and house-slipper type shoes.

But there is very little doubt in my mind that a portion of the "urban rebel" mindset, resentful in no small part to the situations in which previous bad decisions on their part have confined them, view their sagging wardrobe as telling Gramps, Gran, and the rest of the local Establishment exactly what they can kiss.

It's a petty issue in an extremely petty and polarized culture.

while i don't agree with the idea of the government telling me what to wear, exactly how are we stopping this style? by giving a verbal warning; then a written warning; then putting my name on some list & then a $600 fine? why not START with the $600 fine? nip it in the bud at the beginning.

& how many cops are actually going to be stopping people on the street for this offensive?

I don't enjoy seeing someone's butt when they bend over. Even so I would avoid moving to an area that wants to be that controlling.

A little punk walked up to me just the other day and asked for a cigarette. I said. "I don't give smokes to kids and second I don't talk to people who don't know how to dress" and walked away.

If you want to dress like an idiot it's your call. Just another stupid law.
