Georgia Town Bans Saggy Pants

The town of Moultrie in southwest Georgia has passed a city ordinance banning saggy pants, stipulating that pants cannot be more than three inches lower than your waist, and under no circumstance can your underpants be exposed. First time offenders will be fined $25 under the new ordinance. Which brings us to the (admittedly humorous) debate: is this a minor civil liberties violation or an attempt to vanquish “celebrated stupidity”.
