As much as I hate baggy pants, there is NO reason to ban it.

It's a fair law. I don't see why showing off your underwear is cool to some people. It must be some kind of latent genetic caveman mentality thing.

As long as it only applies to guys then I am OK with it.
However, I do like to see women's undergarments.  Wink




The baggy style has got to go!

Funny how the establishment never learn, isn't it? Every generation has its time when the clothing of the young is about to cause the collapse of western civilisation, and then the older people make themselves look bloody stupid (and make said clothes even more popular) by doing something laughable like banning it.

I always think it is funny watching a person with a size 30 waist trying to run in size 54 pants! Don't ban them, I need a good laugh!  Smile But, seriously, maybe it is the fact that I live in Oregon, or I see it every day, but so what if someone is showing their underwear? IMO, as long as nothing explicit is happening, let them show it all! Walk to work wearing only shoes, ride a bike in only boxers..... what harm is it doing to anyone?

GO CANUCKS!!

I was driving to ATL the other day and there was a guy sagging so low that his pubes were hanging out. This kind of shit is disgusting. Buy a belt, and pants that fit.

What scares me the most is that this old bag is concerned about young guys underwear.



This law certainly has many legal flaws however the argument against this ban is really stupid!
This does not discriminate agaisnt Blacks, it discriminates against stupid people with no tact.
I don't like the idea of fashion police either.

I don't understand this one. Exposing one's underwear in public is suddenly the equivalent to "exposing one's private parts". ::shake head::

We have one in here. A cop just nailed a kid in a thump-thump car in front of my house on Tuesday evening. $349. Cha-ching! You can't tell me the kid didn't know there was a law against thump-thump cars.

I want that too! Problem is the street behind our house divides to municipalities, so I would assume both the City of Livonia and Northville Township would have to pass similar laws?

Especially being as most cities will have signs posted on the entrance to the city "Noise Ordinances Enforced" or something similar.

Depends. In some places, when a street is the dividing line between two jurisdictions, either municipality may enforce their laws on the entire width of the street. In other places, the middle of the street is the dividing line.

I've actually seen where one side of the street had a 45 mph speed limit and the other side had a 25 mpg speed limit. Each side was in different municipalities.

You'd think they have more pressing concerns in the community than that. Why waste time and money drafting and tabling legislation when they can be concerning themselves with more crucial matters that need to be addressed?  Confused

No. They're ultra-moral down there. They're so squeeky clean that "gosh darned" is considered swearing. However, screwing your 13 year old daughter is considered a proper way to pass on the family name.  Silly  duck

I love it!

Years ago my son tried wearing baggy pants. I put a stop to that shi&t in a hurry... Later, a little older and wiser, he thanked me for it.
