Unsure if this is the right forum but thought I would post it.



Authorities say a Prattville man has been given a three-day jail sentence for contempt of court for wearing so-called saggy pants in public.

Doesn't anyone else think that three days in jail is too harsh? I could understand asking him to pull up his pants or something.

Don't worry, we aren't as bad as North Korea, so many people will not notice the creeping police state. Some even cheer it on.

Yup...no police state here when you can get 3 days in jail for wearing your jeans too low.

I find most of the comments extremely ignorant also. I bet most of those people are so called "conservatives" who claim to want smaller government yet cheer on legislation against others.


I might as well get the disclaimer out of the way first...........I am white and do not wear my jeans in this style.

Since when is a 20 year old a "teen"? I swear.. by the time I die a 30 year old will be a "teen".

Anyways.. I say good. I hate people who show disrespect by dressing like an assclown because they have no common sense or decency.

See what I mean about "conservatives" cheering on legislation against others?

Who defines offensive to be able to legislate what a person can and can not wear in public? We all know that running around in a bra would be taboo but we see women in swimsuit tops all the time (which most of the time show more of those taboo body parts).

I can walk down the street in a pair of shorts but a black kid can not walk down the street with his pants around his buttocks even though he has shorts on underneath?

Also.....just where does this legislating what we wear end?

Didn't you know? Conservatives are all for small-government, except when they're for controlling how people act socially, it's all about big-government.

Wow get a grip man. Your sense of fashion doesn't apply to everyone else. Some remote tribes show much more skin than those who wear saggy pants. It's not like these saggy pant dudes are naked, they are wearing boxers underneath. And if they aren't wearing anything underneath there are already laws to deal with that. Next we will be declaring girls can't wear short skirts (god forbid). This law is essentially enforcing a public dress code for some idiotic reason. It's none of your business or anyone elses business if they like to wear saggy pants. Your logic is like swiss cheese it's so full of holes.

I grew up in an area where every male sagged their pants because they thought it was cool. Schools tried their best to mend the situation but they failed. It's stupid really.. Sagging your pants so people can see your undergarments while you walk like a penguin.

I used to love to see the fights at school.. lol the FIRST thing they'd do is.. yup, pull those pants up LOL. It was like drawing your pistol in the wild west.. Whoever pulls them up first is the automatic winner.

They never jailed anyone though. To be honest, I wonder if this is the right thing to do because many people I know who sag tend to make bad decisions, they get it from those horrible rap artists on tv. Then I know from stories back in my pops days, they used to "sag" only because they didn't have the funds and didn't want their pants to be flooding up their legs lol.

It's a ridiculous style, and anyone wearing it should be laughed at. Especially when you can see skid marks.

That said, I am against this, and similar laws. As long as a person's naughty bits are covered, I say it's no ones concern how other people dress.

Aww he ain't nothin' but a hound dawg...

It's the same thing, in my opinion. The old fogies (
) say lock up these teenage hooligans! But it'll just keep getting so in your gaga's you will end up choking on it..

And personally, I think they look like morons, but all this is doing is making it possible to lock up Stupid. You can't fix Stupid in prison.

Ummmm, no.

I mean, I think it is ridiculous and would LOVE to believe that myth to be true. But, for the sake of the purity of truth, I must admit that it is a myth.


While sagging did gain its start in the U.S. prison system, it was not a clothes-wearing style authored by imprisoned homosexuals intent upon advertising their interest in casual flings. Sagging pants became the behind-the-bars thing thanks to ill-fitting prison-issue garb: some of those incarcerated were provided with clothing a few sizes too large. That oversizing, coupled with the lack of belts in the big house, led to a great number of jailbirds whose pants were falling off their arses. (Belts are not permitted in most correctional facilities because all too often the lifeless bodies of their inmate owners have been found hanging from them.)


That is the only reason.

The world is just going mad. I hate baggy pants and think people that dress that way need some real advice on how not to look like trash. However, there are a lot of things I don't like in life, along side those I love. Should people go to jail for other things I find offensive???

This is so absurd on so many levels the leaders who would SUGGEST, let alone PASS such a thing need to be BOOTED from office for it and it needs to be front and center in their face for WHY they got a boot in their tail. Only then may the march to 1984 and FAR FAR beyond start to slow down. It sure won't slow a bit while the leaders know they can do this garbage with total impunity. Right now, thats that case.


Who would have believed it. Deprived of liberty and freedom by incarceration for the style a man wears a pair of pants. (See how absurd it sounds when put so plainly?). Vote the idiots out!

I am hoping that they outlaw camouflage, paisley, roach killers, penny loafers, bow ties, cheese and crackers (that come pre-made..with the not real cheese dust), tattoos, any food on a stick, crying children, drivers over the age of 60, alcohol products,


Peace
