    Are laws against saggy pants, showing off your underwear a good idea?

    A Chicago suburb passed an ordinance that would levy $25 fines against anyone showing three inches or more of their underwear in public.

    It's the law: No sagging pants in Chicago suburb - Yahoo! News

    Other than it being kinda creepy that a cop may put a ruler up to someones butt to check, I'm still ok with this ordinance. After all it is UNDERwear. It is supose to be UNDER your wears.

    While I'm fine with what the law is trying to do, being a ******* isn't illegal so I don't see how dressing like one should be. My tax dollars have more important things to do, like harrassing smokers.

    Well, as long as the punishment is 7 days and nights in a medium security prison, with lots and lots of population time so they can be educated in exactly what it means!

    Re: Are laws against saggy pants, showing off your underwear a good idea?

    I don't think a fine, or a law against it is appropriate. There should be almost absolute freedom of what Americans can think, say or do.

    However,

    There should be the freedom for when someone is acting, dressing or being an idiot, for passerby to thump the living daylights out of said idiots, without recourse.

    Same thing with multi-piercings. I have to resist, mightily, the urge to just rip a few of those 300+ piercings out of that guy's face, just for fun.

    Does this also mean that girls that are showing the strings of their thong will get fined as well?

    sagging your pants originated in prison as a way for inmates to signal to other inmates that they were, well, willing to experiment i guess you could say.
