The city of Dallas, is proposing a new law that would prohibit droppy pants within the city limits. Droopy pants have already been banned from the Dallas school districts, but this is going to take things further. One of the councilmen said, "It's an embarrassment to our city if we can't keep our pants up."
My initial thought about this is that it's about time! I'm so sick of looking at people who walk with their legs two feet apart just to keep their pants up, but they're still falling down anyway. And they usually wear a belt. Isn't the belt there to keep them up? I've neer understood how this "fashion" has stayed so long. I guess it makes them wear clean underwear since people are going to be seeing it all the time.
My second thought was, don't the council members have more pressing issues to deal with than how people wear their pants? There are so many streets with pot holes, there are sidewalks that are very dangerous to walk on, and even though they passed a law about panhandling at the street corners, it still goes on...
Louisiana and Virginia have tried a ban like this in the past and nothing ever passed... maybe Dallas will be the first. Here's the full story.
