Anti-Sagging Law

Various cities have instituted a laws to deter people from sagging their pants.

In Lynwood, Illinois people caught showing three or more inches of underwear will be fined $25 and in Delcambre, Louisiana, the penalty can be as stiff as a $500 fine and a six-month jail sentence. The American Civil Liberties Union thinks this targets young men of color, although one might argue that it simply targets the sloppily dressed. I wonder if they’ll ever go after all those fixed-gear bike riders with one pant leg rolled up.
