Iz Yo’ Drawz Showin’?: Law Enforcement Diagram of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE, 07/11/08: Disturbing Video on why Saggy Pants Gotta Go, and also more info on Where the Saggy Pants Absurdity Came From ****
Don’t Do Crack.
Flint, Michigan police are enforcing laws against saggy pants and exposed underwear–the common “sartorial splendor” of the hip-hop gangsta posse. And I say, kudos to them. I’m tired of seeing it. If I really wanted to see men’s underwear, I’d go to a Joe Boxer fashion show, where hot (but gay) models are modeling it.
There is a reason it’s called UNDERwear. Duh. The only thing I like about people who walk about in this “fashion” is that it’s an overt signal the dummies in America are telegraphing to the rest of us, marking their irreversible brain cell-challenged condition. You walk around like that, and you ain’t a memba of the Einstein Crips.
So, now, the ACLU is swooping in to protect this overexposure as “freedom of expression.” But in the meantime, there’s this great diagram describing the various levels of sag and what is and isn’t allowed under the law. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t meant to be funny.

Read the full story on the City of Flint versus the male contingent of SAG. And in the meantime, meet the ladies auxiliary of SAG, the SAG Fan Club–Senita Abrams and Tia Cotton, who are SagHags a/k/a likers of the sag, and therefore, have declared to us their same level of taste and intelligence as the SAG members.

This saggy pants trend is one that I have no patience for. Naturally the ACLU takes the idiot side of the case! Amen to all your points here, Debbie.
If any of you see this crap–call the idiot(s) out and ask/tell them the (duh) obvious–“hey bro, are you trying to display your ass to the world? Get a belt or get lost, you moron!! We are not a nudist country– yet.”
The African princesses who love to see this–what a sad commentary this is the state of where we are at. Ah yes, the future of America looks so bright!

As many know, I come from what many call the most conservative/Republican State in the Union. If anyone comes here, you’d never guess. We have this problem with not just the sagging baggy pants and boxers, but we have the same fashion problems as everyone else.
But to make things worse – the worst perpetrators of this revealing fashion are LDS youth. They do their best to follow chastity, but it’s to a limit.
Here’s the best example: LDS Temple wedding last Summer. Blazing hot, 109 degrees with low humidity. I turn to my wife and I said, “Tell everyone I’m going to the car. I can’t stand just staring at the sidewalk.” She fully understood, and was the only decently dress woman there. Even the bride looked like a stripper. Every woman and jailbait there wore the most inappropriate dress… I’m hardline, I know. I won’t go into details; it’s just wrong for LDS dress – especially at the Temple!
Also, I mentioned this a while ago, there is starting to develop a predatory women problem in our faith. They do wear this stuff, even at activities and at church services.
My wife gave me a great way to deal with the disturbing sights: When someone wants to communicate, I can look above their heads, and then lower down quickly to eye contact and avoid the spiritually and socially wrong sights. It works!
I’m a prude, a faithful husband, and I LIKE IT!

Teen fashions, fashions in general used to come and go but this look as well as that musical cancer known as hip-hop and rap have been around for 25+ years. Why is that? It’s a puzzle I’d like to solve but I’m afraid I won’t like the answers.

WAY OFF TOPIC, But someone ought to talk to that PD Officer..that’s not the way to search. Just wait till he gets his gun grabbed or he gets elbowed to the face, maybe then he’ll figure it out…

Senita and Tia certainly haven’t missed a date at the buffet table.

I know this seems like a waste of resources but is it horrible that Flint is trying to clean up its image and bring its youth up to a higher standard? We are a town that is trying desperately to find renewal. Yet when the leadership does something to clean up the image, people critisize. These are the same individuals that would visit Flint and go back to their suburban oasis and report about seeing the sagging pants and the mis-guided youth. Finally, does anyone see what is happening positively in Flint? The CRIM continues to be an event that draws thousands and brings the community together. While played in Grand Blanc, The Buick Open sees the players staying and dining in Flint, along with those attending. Mayor Williamson just completed Flint Skate Park, at the same location as Swartz Creek Golf Course and Flint Tennis Club, where kids can skateboard safely and in designated areas. Maybe if half the energy that goes into critisizing Flint were spent helping to clean it up, Flint would return to it former prosperous self. I am a life time resident of Flint and PROUD OF IT!

Dear musiccgirl,
Obviously you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer—your whole post is in defense of Flint as though everyone here criticized it. Here is what Debbie wrote:
“Flint, Michigan– police are enforcing laws against saggy pants and exposed underwear–the common “sartorial splendor” of the hip-hop gangsta posse. And I say, kudos to them.”
Yep, that’s real criticism!
So MG–Who here said one negative word about Flint? Sounds like posters are disgusted with IDIOTIC BEHAVIOR–wearing pants below the crotch–dig?
Now, about the Flint Schools–you and the saghag girls raise some real questions for the rest of us to all ponder……???

Now they can tell you how to dress?! Land of the Free? Ha!

I Find this blog to be very hypocritical. So your telling me that it is offensive to expose my underwear out if the top of my pants, mind you with no skin exposed. But it is OK for a woman to go to the beach and wear a bikini that expose 50 to 75 percent of there butts. Seems like a double standard to me. I got the solution maybe there should be new laws regarding woman’s beach attire. The new law will state a bathing suit shall cover the entire buttocks, If any buttocks is exposed it will be regarded as public nudity.
OR MAYBE WE SHOULD STOP MAKING STUPID BUSY BODY LAWS THAT INTERFERE IN PEOPLES LIVES.
