TRENTON, New Jersey (AP) -- It's a fashion that started in prison, and now the saggy pants craze has come full circle -- low-slung street strutting in some cities may soon mean run-ins with the law, including a stint in jail.
Proposals to ban saggy pants are starting to ride up in several places. At the extreme end, wearing pants low enough to show boxers or bare buttocks in one small Louisiana town means six months in jail and a $500 fine.
When I attended high school the trend was there s well but it didn't go too far especially when it cam to walking the hall with coach Vargas. Our football coach made sure that the saggy or as hhe called it the crappy in my pants look was not going to be tolerated while he was working at the school. He didn't care if there was a policy or not, his policy was pull'em up or get out. Now a days the trend has gone to a new level where now just about all types of groups are doing it and ?I have to adit it's getting a bit annoying. There's nothing attractive about having these kidswalk around showing their name brand boxers or briefs to the public. I applaude the effort that NJ is presenting to their citizens, and this should spread through out the US.
