Residents face fine for saggy pants
A Louisiana parish has unanimously passed an ordinance that makes wearing saggy pants illegal.
The Jefferson Davis Parish Police Jury voted on the measure.
Police Juror Steve Eastman initially asked the panel to consider banning saggy pants at the parish courthouse in January in response to courthouse employees’ complaints about having to see people’s underwear and body parts.
Juror Bryon Buller took the suggestion a step further and asked the panel to consider making it illegal for anyone to show their undergarments in public to limit indecent and lewd behavior.
Complaints came primarily from guards who checked people going to the courthouse. Offenders face a $50 fine.
Thoughts on the ban?
Does it lend itself to cultural stereotypes and prejudice?
