As much as I think it looks bad, I still have to disagree. It all boils down to freedom. If this sticks in the long run then will superman with his tighty-red-es be banned off comic book shelves in the area. IMO this is very unjust. I do not like the hip-hop look but it is still a freedom. What next? No long hair for men?, no hats backwards?, no mohawks? When is it the governments right to take what we feel is right for us away? Underwear is NOT a crime. The people that wear their pants low are not showing any nudity. I get where this stems from. You want to make our city look less gangster and have the ability. I truly get it, but this is a taking of freedom.
