From the below quote, it’s interesting that the woman doesn’t agree with a law against clothing, but she calls baggy clothes jail house behavior. Do they wear baggy clothes in jails? Well I guess if wearing baggy clothes is against the law then it will be jail house behavior. And what about clothes that are too tight. They should be banned too. We should probably have to buy our clothes from the government after an extensive once over by a tailor. It can be just like it is in schools. Depending on what state you’re in you’re only allowed to wear certain colors of polo shirts and khaki pants.
From the article:
Makeda Johnson, an Atlanta mother of a 14-year-old girl, said she is glad Martin introduced the proposal. She does not want to see a law against clothing, but said she thinks teenagers are sending a message with a way of dressing that is based in jailhouse behavior.
Atlanta would not be the first city to take on sagging pants.

It’s a crime to expose your underwear? How can Superman save us?
