I wish the state of South Carolina would follow suit with that law. Most kids (all races) are experimenting with this supposingly fashion trend. What is the significance of wearing a pair of pants in this fashion. It is meaningless. The fine should be based on the wider the walk (which takes the wide walk to help hold the pants up) the larger the fine. It is really funny to see them struggling along to keep the pants to the standard of what they feel is adequate enough to be cool. What would they do if the pants would fall completely down? I guess it would not be intimidating since they are showing their butts anyway. The fine money to be distibuted to kids that are in need of clothes. How about that Generation X.

I been livin in Louisiana most my life, and I aint never heard no shit like this. I think it's absolutly ridiculous for them to be banin a style of clothing. Well a couple days ago I saw these women sellin these pants at the flea market. They called em Trash Pants, they look jus like the pants I used to wear, but aint illegal. I got me a pair and nobody bustin my balls yet. Worth it to check em out. Keep your styles real fo sho. WWW.TrashPants.com Keep it real yall ~Mario

It's a ordinance where I come from, and it was started by a black councilman. He pushed the bill and got it put into law. CYA, I don't want to see it.

I have read these comments all the way thru and threw out I keep seeing "it's the parents fault". Yes you are right but have you really thought about the parents these kids have, they are the ones that voted for you know who just because he was Black and for no oyher reason. Then you see them running around braggingbut them seem to forget that he is one half white and maybe they don't reaize he is not going to to have more free programs cause his white side is tired of it slso.

I hate sagging pants too. I imagine our parents hated hip huggers, mini skirts and bell bottoms. While I do not disagree with the ordinance at all. My problem and fear is where this kind of thing will end. Yes, the kids should know they are imitating prisoners who's pants don't fit. Even knowing, todays kids would not care anymore than we cared what our parents thought of bell bottoms, hip huggers, and mini skirts. Jeez. Today, women can run around in public in their underwear and we don't arrest them! I saw one young lady in what looked to me to be a bra- just like I wear UNDER my clothes! I then saw another young woman wearing a bra-less half slip from the waist up. It was exactly like my lingerie. Where will ordinances like this end? Police have a little more to do than be fashion police even despite my opinion that saggers and their mentality seem disgusting. I think I'm going to go out to a nice steak house to eat in my tattered bathrobe and house slippers.
I agree with you, I don't particularly like to see sagging pants, but when I read all of these comments, I can't help but to notice the origin of the underlying emotionality that some call "hate." It would be much better if the bulk of the posters here would redirect their energy toward the high number of drunk drivers that are killing innocent people. I have yet to see some one die from a pair of sagging pants!

Think of this ordnance as society’s way of enforcing a level of decency. I am in Human Resources and have seen people come in for interviews dressed like this. An employee represents an employer in all ways. I would not hire someone that would not present a positive image for my organization. This sagging culture derived from prisons where prisoner outfits did not fit. Too many young people glorify the thug culture. I, for one, and happy to see this ordnance come here and hope it spreads throughout the United States.

I agree that all people should present a postive image, and wonder why so many seem give obese people a FREE pass and accept them, while at the same time are so emotionally envolved with this sagging issue. Obsity is an epidemic in the United States. We are the most obese contry in the World.

The fad started in the early 90s when inmates in the la prison system weren't allowed to have belts. California should have stopped it before it caught on.

POGS (Pants On the Ground) show how little people respect others not to mentions the state of our education and parental control systems. How uneducated must someone be to wear POGS and think they look other than stupid.
