PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Earlier this year, Wildwood became the first town in New Jersey to enact an ordinance that bans people from sagging their pants (see previous story). Tuesday night a town in Salem County followed suit, approving a ban on saggy pants by a unanimous vote.

Penns Grove Mayor John Washington and the Borough Council all seemed to be on the same page about the ordinance which is not meant to punish residents for dressing a certain way, but instead it’s meant to help residents set themselves up for the better future, according to Councilman Carl Washington, Jr.

I hope the residents of Pennis Grove are ready to fund lawsuits defending these crazy laws.

Then the residents should be able to sue over having to see someones ass peeking out of the their baggy pants. Its called acting in a civilized manner. No one likes to see someone's drawers or ass.

Win the (Better) Future!

Some wiseguy will say it depends on the definition of saggy, but having seen government in action, I'm pretty sure it's defined in the ordinance.

I seriously doubt people with pants around their ankle know that lawyers can be used for something other than defense.

Declare it a safety issue, how many times have we seen vids of hoods falling down by tripping over their saggy pants.

Are you crazy? You want laws regulating what people can and cannot wear?

Yep. It's a slippery slope. Would a city or town be able to ban burqas?
