There was a movie about this. Kids would get together in secret and wear their baggy, low slung pants with more than half their underwear showing. Needless to say this led to a lot of shenanigans and the townspeople were in an uproar.

What was the name of that movie dammit?

Now if we could just get the rest of South Carolina to follow suit. Sadly most large cities and medium sized suburbs are Democratic run and they would never alienate part of their voter base to pass such a ban.

here's the issue,,,,its not just that its stupid looking ...I don't think that's it,,,


if these pants are down to your thighs then whats covering your privates???
what if a guy is going commando with just a t shirt flapping in the wind covering his junk??? sound dumb??

yep it does,,,, but if a guy can be on a sex offender list for peeing in the woods too close to a school then these kids walking around with their pants pulled down .... should be just as offensive if not more

Sagging pants was an issue I had to deal with, when my boys were in high school. Sagging pants and no belt was against the school dress code. Many school morning, I had to stop them in their track to question them about no belt. I would never buy them anything way oversize. Pier pressure was my biggest enemy, because that's how the cool kids wear their pants.

I personally never liked that look, especially looking at some guys underwear while standing in a checkout line. However, I know I couldn't worry about other people kids, I could only worry about my own. My boys are 23 and 27 years old now, and they don't wear the sagging pants or anything extreme. They are free to wear what they want these days, because they are grown with kids of their own . If they still was into that look today, I couldn't anything about.

They would probably sag in an attempt at endearing themselves to blacks...kinda like Hillary and her hot sauce.

They're just trying to keep trash out of their town (regardless of color)...... Can't blame them. No successful person I've ever met dresses like that (unless their employment position dictates that they act and dress in a way that relates to the lower class for one reason or another).

Wrong words and tone here, some very bright kids from middle class families have the same problem with the sagging pants. Lets not put people down here, it's not about that. Some of these kids have hard working good parents who tell them the right things to do. They just can't be with them 24/7 when they have to work or the kids are at school. Many of them grow out of that phase, they understand in small southern towns, that people prefer them to have the pants up if they want a job.
