Haha, wut?

I can only see this backfiring as there are probably plenty of people there who don't normally wear baggy's will do it in protest of an injust, laughable law.

Children will surely get lessons in how civil disobedience can be used to demonstrate against oppressive forces.

A town in South Carolina has passed a measure that outlaws citizens from wearing excessively saggy pants.

The law was passed in Timmonsville, South Carolina, a small town of about 2,000 southwest of Florence.

The law, enacted immediately, makes it illegal for town members to wear sagging trousers or shorts that intentionally display a person’s underwear. The law also outlaws nudity and pornographic displays.

Offenders of the law are subject to a warning, and could face a fine between $100 and $600 for repeat offenses.

“We’re trying to build up our town. And we can have the business, but if the people are not looking somewhat decent, then we have the business, but because of the people, they’ll be scared to get out of their cars,” councilman Walter Washington said when he proposed the measure last month, according to the Washington Times.

According to WCIV in Charleston, South Carolina, the law was also enacted to help young people make better choices.

i don't know why some folks get so uptight about loose breeches.

I live in the city and walk the city street with the kids with their asses hanging out. And not just pulled down - we are down mid way thigh now. Now - go sit on that city bus with a kid with messy pee stained and whatever britches on which I've seen. I'll be glad when this crap ends.

Are you saying their backsides are nude or you're looking at underwear?

I'm not a fan of baggy pants, but to each their own until I have to look at somebody's naked ass.

@Kim Chee - I've seen homebums with naked ass on bus seats (pants pulled down and no belt, etc) - and the kids ('scuse me adults) with dirty ass thin ass underwears that cover nothing at all and are stained - can't miss that mishap in your face- at all - hanging out on the seats I sit on. Colleges around me and high schools are trying to make them pull up their pants. The whole ass is hanging out. Good times. I feel like spraying lysol on the seat where I sit my ass on - on the public bus. ick. When I work downtown I try to hoof it in.

Hey - bring winter on - don't have to see more ass!!! :D

i feel ya im not looking to sit in somebodys shit stain on the bus, but also when i see people with pants hanging below their butts t it just reminds me of a dude looking to show off his butt...

in a prison approachable way. not to knock anyone fashion sense but i just never got why this became such a popular thing. yer showing yer body to everybody you meet and making you walk like you got a load in yer pants.

and this is off topic...but i wear underwear mostly as protection against if i do shit myself...which im not ashamed to admit happens from time to time...i sure as hell dont want to show off my shitty underpants to people. im more prone to the tuck the pants into the boot and play it cool until i can get home and cry to myself.

but bottom line this is a stupid fucking law and i hope itlll get over turned sooner rather later. people should be able to dress however silly they want to.

Yeah I know - wtf something else law. ugh. telling you how you can express yourself. Not right. But I have to dig deeper and yes do espress yourself.

But common decency really. I'm just hoping the shitty (lol - meant really) "fashion" wears it's self out. It's a flag in the city literally. It's not just underwear it's some silky fly away crap too. Do I want to see your exposed junk? And I do. Do I want to sit in shit stained funky underwear? Not really. Cause that's what happens too. Meh.

May the whole trend die please.

sagging pants are one of the stupidest fucking things i've ever seen, especially when people that do it do it so low they have to walk bowlegged; that said, you can't outlaw that kind of shit, that's even dumber. people should be able to wear whatever they want, however they want, no matter how dumb it is. i also refuse to believe that this isn't somehow a racial profiling issue.

i am very open minded about alot of things and as a ex business owner i undestand that first impressions are everything ...but it seems to me that those that have the lowest pants have the lowest iq tho having said that JNCO baggy jeans are very comfortable .... this sounds like my kind of town
