Sagging pants…it’s originated from prisons. Simply because there were no belts to hold their baggy suits up so they sagged.
Somehow that has become a trend for many even on the outside of prison walls…despite the ridiculousness of it all. It’s actually quite an embarrassing trend.
However, to some of these weirdos it’s considered pretty bad ass and cool. Regardless of the fact that they have to walk like penguins and their pants are down around their knees…it’s just so strange.
I mean, how did they get to place in their head that tells them everyone wants to see their underwear while shopping for dinner items at their local grocery store?
Well, now we hear that there is a town in South Carolina that is actually cracking down on the asinine fashion statement that has become a violation to our eyes.
An ordinance was passed by the Timmonsville town Council that will prohibit sagging pants. If one violates this new ordinance it could actually result in fines.
Imagine that? I can hear all the liberal triggering going on right now.
This ordinance was brought passed 5-1 and the effort is being made in an attempt to promote self-respect and integrity in the town as told to us by Mayor Pro Tem William James Jr.
Now police officers will be enforcing the law against any form of ‘intentional display’ of a person’s undergarments.
I can’t even begin to imagine the kind of hoopla this is going to put into action.
Here is what the exact language of the ordinance states:
It shall be unlawful for any person driving or walking in the streets and roads of the Town of Timmonsville to:
(a) Engage in public nudity;
(b) display pornographic material such that others are unwantingly exposed to the same or that minors are able to view the same;
(c) display the flesh of one’s rear-end, behind, or backside during stationary or movement within the city limits;
(d) wear pants, trousers, or shorts such that the known undergarments are intentional displayed/exposed to the public.
Now police are cleared and have authorization to give a verbal warning to anyone’s first violation of this saggy pant ordinance.
Can you imagine that?
“Hello sir, but I can see your underwear…this is your verbal warning.”
If the offender gets a second violation the police officer can then issue a written warning and the offender’s name could be placed in the law enforcement registry.
After that second warning if the violator hits strike 3…
It’s time to pay up!
The fine can range from $100 to $600 depending on what the city judge rules.
Curious to see what kind of impact this ordinance has on the public….at the same time in awe that something like this ordinance actually came to pass in Obama’s America.
Who would have thunk?
