The Flint, Mich police are apparently a bit underworked so their interim chief has intitiated a war on saggy britches:
Dicks, who took over the department last month on an interim basis, announced that his officers would start arresting people wearing saggy pants that expose skivvies, boxer shorts or bare bottoms.
“Some people call it a fad,” Dicks told the Free Press this week while patrolling the streets of Flint. “But I believe it’s a national nuisance. It is indecent and thus it is indecent exposure, which has been on the books for years.”
It looks to me that it is more about copping a feel:
Their focus seems to be on guys but, surely, the rules apply to the ladies as well. Imagine the possible outrage at the local swimming hole when all those thong bikinis are bared.
Will these arrests stand up in court? I suspect that this Dicks’ personal vendetta will be tossed out on its hind quarters somewhere up the judicial system.
Via The Agitator who has a nice graphic explaining the rules.
