Monday night, Delcambre's town council voted to outlaw sagging pants that expose underwear. Men and women found in violation could be fined up to $500, or be sentenced to up to 6 months in jail.
The law goes into effect when the mayor signs the ordinance - which could be sometime this month.
Hopefully this is something that catches on nation-wide! It's called underwear for a reason!

That is retarded, How can you enforce such a law like this?
I think its the persons own decision to decide how far to pull up there pants :bnghd:
This fashion actually transitioned from prison culture. In prison you aren't allowed to wear belts to prevent self hanging or the hanging of others.

The government, and the police who subsequently are the enforcement arm of them
have no place telling a person how they can and can not dress.
Today it's baggy pants, tomorrow its women wearing pants.
Personally I don't participate in this style, I may wear baggy pants, but I wear a belt
(I have a thing about being naked in any form), however if a cop got on my case about it,
well he'd end up in the hospital.
