Saggy Pants Are Not Police Business, Judge RulesSeptember 18th, 2008
Saggy pants are not police business, judge rules.
Government doesn’t have the right to penalize folks for wearing saggy pants, a Florida judge ruled Tuesday. “Somebody help me,” Palm Beach Circuit Judge Paul Moyle, said mockingly before delivering his decision. “We’re not talking about exposure of buttocks. No! We’re talking about someone who has on pants, whose underwear are apparently visible to a police officer who then makes an arrest and the basis is he’s then held overnight, no bond.” Get more on that case at BET.com/News. Should government be able to dictate what people wear?
