There are a lot of cities who have passed this ordinance. Making it law in town is one thing. Enforcing it is another. The city where my step daughter lived in Georgia passed this several years ago. She works in an attorney's office and, after curiosity, found out after this law was passed over 10 years ago, there have been around half a dozen ticketed for this, and that was just after it became law. Nothing since. I believe it will be that way anywhere that passes it.

While I think this [alleged] 'style' is one of the dumbest things ever, and people who wear their pants this way look like idiots, there should not be 'laws' against it. (I'm 'conservative' to a point just short of total anarchy.) If you try to outlaw 'stupid' a great deal of the population would be in jail...outlaw 'bad taste' and there won't be enough free people to pay enough taxes to run the government...or the prisons. (But the unemployment rate might be next to nothing.)

That said, things like this tick me off enough that if I lived closer I'd go there and do just to bug them...better yet, recruit a whole big bunch of people to go and do it with me...preferably right in front of the local gov offices...and if there were enough of us I'd suggest taking it one step further and mooning them outright.

They do it either because (1) they are too stupid to know how to pull up their pants or (2) they want to show everyone how little respect they have for others.

It's just a "kid" thing. Nothing new, by the way, Stringbean having dressed thusly over 60 years ago as a bluegrass entertainer!

Now more amusing is the thought of millions of octogenarian great grammas roaming free with their faded, blurry tattoos peaking out from the rolls of fat accumulated over a half a century. lmao.

A trend? They've been doing this for at least 20-30 years now. There are 30+ year old men who have been doing this since they were teenagers and they still don't pull their pants up. They were doing this when I was in high school and it's never stopped.

so much for the conservatives wanting LESS government intrusion into citizens lives

You obviously didn't bother to read. The ordinance does not punish with prison time but fines and other legal punishment.

All that takes money to implement. Unless you are indecent showing skin, this is ridiculous. It changes nothing!

I don't see that law being enforced all that much though. That is a really small town with only a hand full cops. They will just wear their oversize shirts over the sagging pants, or pull them up temporary when they see a cop. I don't see them having the man power to really enforce this, and the kids most likely will just ignore it.
