Saggin' Isn't A Crime.
« on: March 01, 2009, 12:59:37 AM »
Chad, Hermitage Manor and PV's abuses don't get any legislative consideration in TN.  The good ol' boys like places that store godless little teenage heathens, queers and junkies. Wilfull display of gluteal cleavage and/or boxer shorts is an abomination unto Bible-Belt True Christians and must be smited. Or smote.

First offense:  $200 and 40 hours community service work.

Fourth offense:  $1,000 and 160 hours of community service work.

Did Cheryl Sudweeks or Randall Hinton pull  as much in fines and community service hours?

I'm willing to bet anything that this has absolutely nothing to do with issues of lewdness, but is actually an anti-gangbanger thing.


Which I think is hilarious, because it actually serves the powers that be that gangbangers dress in the idiotic way they do. Why? Because it's real hard to run away from the cops when your stupid assed pants are down around your knees.

FUBU should stand for Fucked Up By Us.

I think the ACLU might step in here.  This looks like a violation of the first amendment.  It's not indecent exposure since nothing private is showing... so it's basically the state dictating the expression or style of clothing a private citizen chooses to wear.

Ah Jeeeezzzz... Do O. Ford's kids perchance play in the school band, and are parents being pressured to come up with funds to take care of those exorbitant extracurricular activity fees? With the economy in the toilet at the moment, he must surely pride himself on his creativity!

When I first saw it I believed that it was a text from Iran or an area under command by the Talibans in Afghanistan, but then I noticed the currency.

Don't they have better things to legislate on?

of course they do.

but they lost the "war on terror"

completely destroyed our economy

only fueled the "war on drugs"

so now they are trying their hand in some good ol' "social standardizing" or in other words, forcing religious ideals upon its citizens.

a perfect example of this was the recent legislation to ban same sex marriages, its sad to think there are enough of these people to force a law like that onto our society but believe me when I say "what the church says, goes" around here.

Apparently, "personal wear" is too personal.

I wonder how they feel about women's stockings?  Corporal Klinger might like to know!  ::evil::

Speaking of whom, and of underwear, just how lucky was that poor sod who went AWOL and who was recently apprehended in Boulder, Colorado? Hey...thank goodness it wasn't Tennessee! For some reason or other he had 3 pairs of women's underwear stuffed in his shirt pocket, and was wearing a thong under his boxer shorts. Would that have counted as four offenses right off the bat?  :eek:

It's government.  What do you expect other than for them to abuse their power and stamp on other people's rights.

every day i am shocked by a new instance of corruption and injustice. This ranks pretty low on the list, but is terrifying in its own right. Yet another reason to put americans in prison? (Well, poor or helpless Americans, pretty sure the Bush twins get to wear what they like)
