Saggy pants is just a way of rebelling against the mainstream society. Or, to thumb a nose at standards.
The practice, I understand, is the result of prisoners wearing baggy pants.Therefore if we wish to reverse the trend, we should dress our prisoners better.

The boys think they are cool wearing their pants down to their knees and showing their undies but the real meaning and statement they are making is that they are gay and are available for the night!
I just laugh when I see the boys wearing their pants to the ground because most of them are uneducted fools that have no idea of the real statement they are making!

Oh really, what would you suggest.... maybe belts and regular shoes, even dress slacks and tie's, they would be better dressed, but the psych cases would hang themselves with the shoe laces, belts, ties.
The others would choke you out with their belt and take your commissary Mt.Dew and Doritos, and maybe even make you the new Mrs Man. Hooray for Better Dressed Inmates..... Non Compo Mentis.

You are so clever. However, it's a well known fact that kids are influenced by the baggy clothes worn by inmates. It's also pretty evident that it has become a method of rebellian.

Oh my, I never thought of that. Silly me. A psych-o might hang himself, someone might be chocked with a belt.

Don't suppose there's an "in-between" way to dress inmates that would improve their look, yet not offer these possibilities.... Non Compo Mentis back to ya sugar.

Ok Etta, Here is the real deal they wear baggy jumpsuits in jail, so they can hide items within the clothing without being obvious and Jails are either too hot or too cold, looser jumpsuits allow you to stuff it like a insulated jumpsuit for warmth or when its warm allows more air to circulate. Thats about it really.... thats where that butt crack trend came from... its just funny.
Most inmates have very little leeway as far as what they wear, jump suits are easier to wash and keep up with for the jails. As far as draggin pants.... as long as im not looking at somebody actual skin valley im ok, the boxers dont bother me... So no SKIN no FOUL

Please dont mistake this for support of the inmates. But it appears the joke is on the inmates.... I'll tell you why, The meals are mostly not hot, breakfast can be the worst, cold powdered eggs, grits half raw and watery, toast soggy from the grits, and warm borderline rancid milk. Lunch is baloney sandwich, warm meat stiff bread and coolaid type beverage. Dinner is not much better...
Showers are available but the mens dorm showers are open to entire pod, and that aint water running down the shower wall...
Warm beds... well if its May through Oct. you get a very warm bed.
From Oct. to April you get a much cooler bed. Jails are not known for the Heating and Air.
You get the picture... They are not getting these things like you think, it sucks most of the time. But there are countries that make the inmates hunt meat, clean and cook it, raise the veggies for themselves, no showers but rainwater, and no Heat or AC ever....
Amen

I'm sure 'V' will correct me if I'm wrong, but I happen to think that inmates should produce their own food. Kill it, cook it, grow it. No heat, no air, no shower.

Actually NO Etta, I agree with you 100%, but with two exceptins, please let me explain.
I love the idea of grow it, kill it , cook it, which happens still in other country's, however I think.... air or heat should be manual powered crank or walk mill of some type, showers/ water for cooking manually pumped, zero out the cost a good bit, primitive but very effective, you could be old and frail in jail but you can wash lettuce and potatoes, you want a shower? your buddy turns the water pump then you trade places....
Just an Idea Etta, but I do agree

You are unnecessary. I do agree that they need to enforce some kind of rule on saggy pants, but I know white boys that sag not just black people Latino too.
