Saggy Pants Are Still Okay in Alabama

A bill banning saggy pants is dead. The Alabama Senate killed the legislation, after lawmakers voiced concerns that the law would be difficult to enforce. It was a local law, that would have applied only to Montgomery County. The bill's sponsor, state Rep. Alvin Holmes (D-Montgomery) says he intends to bring the bill back next year. Holmes says he finds it disrespectful when people wear their pants so low, that their underwear is exposed for all to see.

Next year it might be the whole state.

Or maybe not.

Alabamians dare defend their rights, including the right to have saggy pants.


  1. Good for them! Idont see what's the prob with lowriders.

  2. What if they drop down to the floor?

  3. I still have never figured out how they keep them from falling off.

  4. I don't understand the existence of the fad.

    I don't know why it excites such emotions.

    I do think that there are better issues for the legislature than that.
