Don't wear your pants too low, you may be arrested

Are you serious? Are we actually wasting time and money on this? Wow. There is actually a law in some states for wearing baggy pants that show the wearer's underwear. I personally don't wear my baggy jeans like that, but I know others do and I don't have a problem with that. In Florida a 17-year old spent a night in jail for wearing low pants. Read the story on Yahoo. This is just stupid and a waste of time and money.

From the same article, it looks like other cities are considering a law like this too:

Laws that ban low-slung pants are on the books in several US cities, including Delcambre, Louisiana, where offenders can be fined up to 500 dollars or jailed for up to six months.

Dallas, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia are among the larger US cities considering similar measures.
