1. I don't want my children seeing people's nasty butts hanging out.
This woman is actually a racist. The majority of people who were baggy pants, are of an african american nationality.
Justice? What a joke. Low-rider jeans that are too low? Call 911. Failing to shovel that snow-covered sidewalk? Book ’em. In America today, lawmakers are criminalizing innocent behavior at an alarming rate and undermining our criminal justice system. By Jonathan Turley
Texas Rep. Wayne Smith is tired of hearing about parents missing meetings with their children's teachers. His proposed solution is simple: Prosecute such parents as criminals. In Louisiana, state Sen. Derrick Shepherd is tired of seeing teenagers wearing popular low-rider pants that show their undergarments — so he would like to criminally charge future teenagers who are caught "riding low." (Illustration by Robert Ahrens, USA TODAY) Across the USA, legislators are criminalizing everything from spitting on a school bus to speaking on a cellphone while driving. Criminalizing bad behavior has become the rage among politicians, who view such action as a type of legislative exclamation point demonstrating the seriousness of their cause. As a result, new crimes are proliferating at an alarming rate, and we risk becoming a nation of criminals where carelessness or even rudeness is enough to secure a criminal record.
