Derrick Shepherd Should Walk in MY Shoes
People who wear low-slung pants that expose skin or "intimate clothing" would face a fine of up to $500 and possible jail time under a bill filed by a Jefferson Parish lawmaker.
State Rep. Derrick Shepherd said he filed the bill because he was tired of catching glimpses of boxer shorts and G-strings over the lowered belt lines of young adults.
The bill would punish anyone caught wearing low-riding pants with a fine of as much as $500 or as many as six months in jail, or both.
"I'm sick of seeing it," said Shepherd, a first-term legislator. "The community's outraged. And if parents can't do their job, if parents can't regulate what their children wear, then there should be a law."

If this is the standard lawmakers now use to propose legislation, then I've been mistaking the velocity of the nation's descent towards Hell by a factor of five. This man and the system that supports him are menaces to freedom.
There should be a law against that. Unfortunately, the best one this country possesses has proven to be useless in preventing statist tyranny.
