    Thread: Man Sent to Jail for Wearing Baggy Pants

      Agreed; they are completely different. A verbal tirade will clearly disrupt normal court proceedings no matter what. Wearing something that makes you look like an idiot doesn't disrupt anything except asshats who are offended by inconsequential nothings. There is a line that attire, or lack there of, could possibly cross, but pants sagging to show underwear is well behind it.

      That's what I always heard saggy pants meant. I figured the guy was TRYING to go back to jail. Is the uproar over the guy getting too short of a jail sentence for it?

      I find it hard to believe he wasn't asked to pull them up first...which would still generate the same misleading headline.

      Even if he wasn't told to pick up his pants:

      1. He's a grown man
      2. He's facing a criminal charge
      3. He is in a professional setting
      4. He should ****ing know better

      What is this baby sitting crap? You dress like a ****head, expect to be treated like one.

      If he knew better, he wouldn't be in a courtroom to begin with.

      All you socialist pantywaists need to back the truck up. a) the article is very broad and unspecific b) you weren't in the courtroom.

      And judges are paid to pay attention to the petty things.

      As most "saggers" are heterosexual males, the display is intended to attract the attention of females.

      Like a baboon's red bottom... Primates are very butt-oriented. I suppose it's fitting that primate rhymes with inmate. We're all inmates when it comes to our DNA.

      Good pun. As for the regular reading... are you serious? If you're really arguing that sagging is merely a gay mating ritual, you're very much mistaken.

      It's more of a human debris ritual.

      Includes the phrase "receiving stolen property". Judge didn't just pick some dude out for lowriders & toss him in the clink.

      Receiving stolen property is a felony in AL and has a jail sentence of 12-72 months. He was there to enter a plea. There hasn't been a verdict yet, so he wasn't sentenced for the stolen property.

      He went to jail for wearing baggy pants and probably for being verbally disrespectful.

      The average pants sagger around here is a teenage white kid.

      I would barely put them above a baboon on the evolution scale myself. However, they don't belong in jail for that...maybe a zoo...

      For a three day CoC I'll bet he was a bit more than "verbally disrespectful". I'll go out on a very short limb & say he was non stop during the entire proceeding. Like I said b4, the article was c**p - completely uninformative if not innacurate.

      Nope - I have too much respect for zoo animals.

      Sagging certainly has racial implications due to its origin as prison fashion (prison being disproportionately targeted toward AAs), but my post clearly does not suggest anything racist. All humans are primates and all humans with a sex drive (1% reportedly have none), particularly males, are butt-oriented, according to research I've read recently. Sagging is a sexual display primarily, although it also has other related attributes:

      Identification with hip-hop culture, rap, blackness as ideal masculinity, counter/youth culture (provocation/rebellion/humor), gay male appeal (small subset of sagging), et cetera.

      Accusing me of racism is a waste of time because I know what race is: generally a misleading way of categorizing culture with unscientific (Eugenics) notions about physical appearance/constitution (usually used to justify exploitative hierarchism). As culture is very malleable (and physical racial characteristics are overwhelmingly minor in terms of rational importance), tying it to physical attributes is usually a waste of time. As the deaf are not a racial group, they're not an exception.

      Thanks for the history lesson on 'sagging'.

      However this isn't 1992, and these days sagging has zero racial connotation. Fwiw; my pants are always sagging, and im an upper middle class Jew, in my late 30's.

      Inappropriate court attire is inappropriate. Bottom line. So lets not muddy the true issue at hand, with irrelevant accusations of racism, based on an antiquated history lesson; with regards to a 'formally inappropriate' fashion statement.

      Someone tried to be a badass is court, and consequently got served like dinner Hombre

      True that. I'm generally a clean person, but the other day I saw a tight little ass wrapped up in white yoga pants. I would not have hesitated for one second to stick my tongue right up her crack.

      I've never understood the sag the pants below the buttocks crowd. What is the purpose of this? Does it mold your every being as to walk slower, give riddance to movements that seem to be a replacement for Ritalin? It is kinda like wearing a straight jacket.
      Then it might be an expression of fear or reverse subscribed conformity.

      Maybe this is just a solution for ass sweat ventilation
      Must be a huge prolem if you have poor hygiene practices.

      Who knows these things? We must find the answers!
