MANSFIELD, La. Effective Sept. 15, anyone in this northwest Louisiana town caught wearing sagging pants that expose his or her underwear will be subject to a fine up to $150 plus court costs, or face up to 15 days in jail.

Mansfield aldermen Monday voted unanimously and without discussion to enact the law. Mayor Curtis McCoy said he proposed it because he was concerned about the number of individuals who wear pants that expose their underwear. The citizens of Mansfield, he said, should not have to put up with it.

This is a great idea and I hope it catches on, not so much for the underwear showing but because of what they can hide in those big baggy pants. I saw a video of a guy with bagging pants that pulled an amazing array of weapons out of his pants. Very scary!

If this is the case, then I have to insist that all chicks wearing low-rise jeans with a roll of fat spilling over the waistline (aka muffin-top) NOT expose their g-string in back. Citizens should not have to put with that, either.

You miss the point. This kind of thing is directed towards gang related dress.

I go 'commando' often. However I wear a belt which keeps my pants up.

Yeah, this will work great until the next crazy trend comes along. Doesn't matter how you dress it, a thug is a thug.

I agree, although if it's a hot woman she should get a free pass.
