Of all things to (try to) regulate. Story courtesy of the AP.
 
PORT ALLEN, La. (AP) - With a councilman saying underwear "is called underwear for a reason," another Cajun-country town has banned saggy pants from its streets.

The ordinance, passed unanimously Monday by the Port Allen City Council, requires pants to be secured at the waist so they do not fall below the hips, expose underwear or create indecent exposure.

Violators could be fined $25 to $250 for a first offense, and $250 to $500 for repeat offenses.

Council member Ray Helen Lawrence said she voted for the ordinance only because she got numerous calls from constituents who consider the look a fashion faux pas. Many said they associate droopy outerwear with crime, she said.

Council member Hugh Riviere said he didn't want to view other people's undergarments, saying it "is called underwear for a reason."

Stephanie DeLaney, one of two women asking the council to reject the proposal, said lightheartedly that she has lost weight, so she sometimes wears baggy pants.

"I'd hate for someone to call the cops on me for that," she said.

Seven other Louisiana communities have passed similar droopy drawers ordinances: Eunice, Shreveport, Alexandria, Delcambre, Mansfield, Lafourche and Pointe Coupee parishes. Two others - Lake Charles and the St. Mary Parish town of Baldwin - are considering them.

The city of Natchitoches rejected a similar proposal.

 I am from the north too and wonder what the fuck goes on down here sometimes (like sending all of our water to a bunch of endangered mussels) but come on!
I can take NY's inventory too as it's not that difficult.

Do these dumbasses with the saggy pants know that it's prison code for being someone's bitch?
