No Saggy Pants For You

At least, not if you live in Jackson, Mississippi. Although the city council voted down his proposition to outlaw saggy pants, Mayor Frank Melton has declared he will illegalize the fashion style by use of executive order. I wonder how the council will take this, since they said it was an unconstitutional thing to implement.

"I certainly respect the Constitution," Melton said, "but we have some issues that are much bigger than the Constitution."

I know Neatorama tries to stay unpolitical, but it is crucial for all of us to stand up and declare our rights to sag our pants.

"...we have some issues that are much bigger than the Constitution."

Wow, really? How absurdly unqualified does one have to be to come up with something like that?

If he's that determined to make it illegal,he should just make a mandtory belt law. You know sagging pants are only produced without a belt. Jail,Gang or not a belt has to fit in there somewhere.

Yes, every time we mention jail, we have to throw in the homosexual card.

Saggy pants used to be a gang thing, but now it's just a silly fashion that's been going on for years.

That's why the whole "shave a star in your hair" thing was silly, because gang symbols eventually become so watered-down, they really make no difference.
