No lie, low rise pants may soon be illegal to wear in Baton Rouge, La. Why? Because State rep. Derrick Shepherd was "tired of catching glimpses of
boxer shorts and G-strings over the lowered belt lines of young adults."
Despite whether or not its tacky,this is an extensive punishment. You can have a dress code in work, school, certain restaurants, buildings, etc.
There's already a public decency statute. Isn't this stepping over the line a little bit?
And supposedly, "if parents can't do their job, if parents can't regulate what their children wear, then there should be a law.''
Just thought this was an interesting little hit of info there, plus I know several people who live in Baton Rouge...I wonder how they feel about
Ban on low Rise Pants
