So people walking around with their underwear hanging out, for no other reason than to seek attention, does and will drive away businesses from moving in, which in turn costs the city money, which in turn leaves less money to help the needy, help the schools, or anything else that the city needs to do. Logical conclusion would be that taxes would be raised if funding isn't available for those programs, so in the long run it could cost taxpayers money, and all because these people don't want to buy clothes that fit, or don't want to wear a belt, and are doing nothing but seeking attention. Seems pretty selfish and silly to me, and I'm aware taxes won't be raised tomorrow or anything if this law doesn't get instituted, so don't misunderstand, but the natural flow of things could reach that point somewhere down the road. And all due to sagging pants? Meh, not worth it at all. Institute the law, enforce the law, and move on.

That might be one of the stupidest things I've ever read, and more of a stretch than Mr. Fantastic....People sag fellas get over it, and those cops or whoever in Dallas should have better things to do like catching criminals in the trap...Why are some people so stupid these days... :-P

No, it's not stupid at all. Why would a business decide to open in a bad neighborhood, or a neighborhood that was likely to go downhill? Building in an area where people have zero respect for themselves or others would be stupid. In turn, less businesses equals less money (lower employment too), and money has to come from somewhere, so say "hello" to higher taxes. Like it or not, that's how it works.

If you want to argue personal liberties, feel free, or if you want to argue the "where does it stop?" part, that's cool too, as both of those have some sort of ground and reasoning behind it. If you want to say businesses are stupid for avoiding areas that are unappealing, or want to say cities are stupid for trying to keep cities clean and respectable in order to bring businesses in, well, that argument is so weak it's not even worth the web space to respond.

Heh, no one has mentioned the likely racial element to this proposed ordinance, huh? :-? }:-)


I've got no problem with people sagging their pants down to their knees. If they want to look like a fool, that's their right. Some designer brands have also made jeans that are meant to sag, with some even going as far as sewing in the top half of faux boxers to keep the appearance of sagging, so you don't have to wear boxers if you don't want to.

The hypothetical given in the article, about a business seeing someone walking around with sagged pants and then pulling their planned investment in that neighborhood is garbage too.
The cake is a lie.
