    Flint cops crack down on sagging pants | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press

    In my opinion this is bullshit, not only is a complete waste of resources, what Flint is doing wither they meant to or not, they've found a way to get probable cause to search lower income young people on sight.

    I mean what the shit is going on when how your dressed is probable cause.
    Lets say your 16 year old dumb ass kid won't wear a belt because thats how the cool kids wear they're pants. Now a police officer can just stop him and search him, based solely on how he looks.

    Yes I know the trend is annoying, but I don't think you should be able to tell people how to dress.

    The ACLU is looking into the legality of this, but as of yet nothing has changed.

    I think Louisiana passed this same law a while ago and Maryland tried it but it got nowhere. In any case it's a dumb law and will only result in innocent people with baggy pants being locked up while real crime (you know like robbery or murder) is happening.

    How is that any cause to search anyone? Just because your pants are falling off, it doesn't mean that you're packing heat or stealing, maybe some drugs. Which is the only thing I could think of, anyway, to find on someone. Bull shit.

    Yes, the trend is annoying but I don't think it merits jail time or fines.

    Genius stealth tax! Someone clearly wants a new 52" TV in their mayors office.

    I would endorse a swift crippling of those who find this "law" either realistic or necessary.

    All this whining about the economy and we're sending cops out to get wiggers who can't afford belts. That's some real financial intelligence right there.

    So I suppose wearing those long T-shirts or having their caps backwards is gonna be next on the list for "indecent exposure."

    Don't the Cops have better things to do than to hunt down S**t pants all the time. Oh yeah there supposed to be out looking for REAL Murders and Rapist and other REAL criminals. Is it stupid of course it is should they be wearing pants like that, not really, should they get crap for it yes, but arrested you gotta be kidding me, as much as I hate to say it they are with in the boundaries of the first amendment witch does allow them to do that.
