A Crack in the Law ? ? ? ?

The Toronto Star supplies this:

Drop law on sagging pants, judge rules - World - September 18, 2008

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla.–A judge has decided a town law banning sagging pants is unconstitutional after a teen spent a night in jail accused of exposing too much underwear.

Julius Hart, 17, was charged last week after an officer said he spotted the teenager riding his bicycle with 10 to 12.5 centimetres ( 4-5 inches) of blue-and-black boxer shorts revealed.


"The first time I saw this particular fashion, I disliked it," Hart's public defender, Carol Bickerstaff, told the judge. "And then I realized I'm getting old."

Will wonders never cease?

There are actually a few rational people in Florida after all.

Go figure . . . .
