    Cajun Town Bans Saggy Pants

    DELCAMBRE, La. (AP) - Sag your britches somewhere else, this Cajun-country town has decided.

    Mayor Carol Broussard said he would sign an ordinance the town council approved this week setting penalties of up to six months in jail and a $500 fine for being caught in pants that show undergarments or certain parts of the body.

    Broussard said he has nothing against saggy pants but thinks people who wear them should use discretion. "It's gotten way out of hand out here," he said.

    Albert Roy, the councilman who introduced the ordinance, said he thought the fine was a little steep and should be more in the $25 range, but he still favored the measure.

    "I don't know if it will do any good, but it won't hurt," Roy said. "It's obvious, and anybody with common sense can see your parts when you wear sagging pants."

    Broussard's advice for people who like their pants to hang low: "Just wear it properly. Cover your vital parts. I mean, if you expose your private parts, you'll get a fine. If you walk up and your pants drop, you get a fine. They're better off taking the pants off and just wearing a dress."

    This has to be a violation of some kind of constitutional protection, right?

    At the very least the city should be required to provide belts.

    You can wear whatever you want as long as it does not incite violence or disturb the peace

    I agree.
    All of America should pass that law, IMO.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Mainly it is because underwear goes under your pants.
    The way a lot of people like wearing their pants baggy with them falling off their ass they may as well just wear chaps.

    If you want to start telling people how to dress you might as well change the American flag to a Red Star and line up tanks outside the White House, comrade.

    There was a time when older folks thought younger dudes without powdered wigs looked bad as well. How often you see those around man?
