The ban, approved Wednesday and expected to be signed into law this week, targets the public wearing of pants—and, oddly, skirts—that hang “below the waist” and “expose the skin or undergarments.” Violators will be slapped with fines:$50 for the first offense,$100 for the second, and $100 plus 16 hours of public service for each subsequent offense.

I would support this ordinance. Time to bring some decency back. If someone wearing pants under their butt is waiting in line in front of a small child they should also be charged with public lewdness, endangering the welfare of a child, and exposing themselves to a child. What's the difference between wearing your pants like that and dropping your pants to someone?

What about the state and county workers who have their pants down or off most every weekend and some weekdays as well?

I saw a college student running to the ARC bus with his pants down like that. Well he was trying to run but his pants down to his knees kept almost tripping him. It was so funny. He looked ridiculous. Not cool. Moron.
