Low sagging pants in school will now be against the law in Florida as of this week. The Florida House of Representatives K- 20 Education Innovation Subcommittee unanimously passed the legislative bill targeting the hip hop trend.

According to HiphopDX.com:

A new bill has passed in the House of Representatives that bans clothing worn in a “vulgar” manner

Yesterday, the Florida House of Representatives’ K-20 Education Innovation Subcommittee unanimously passed a legislative bill targeting sagging pants.

“This pro-family, pro-education, pro-jobs bill provides each school district … adopt a student dress code of conduct, a policy that explains to each student their responsibility,” said Rep. Hazelle Rogers, who introduced the bill. “This would make for a better school district and more productive students.”

The bill prohibits students from wearing clothing that “exposes the underwear or body parts in an indecent or vulgar manner.”

This is not the first time that sagging pants have become a legal issue. In 2008 Riviera Beach in Florida passed a by-law that said anyone caught with sagging pants would be subject to a $150 fine or community service, and habitual offenders faced the possibility of jail time. The law was later abolished when it was deemed unconstitutional, this came after a teenager spent a night in jail for wearing his pants too low.

For someone like myself who don’t wear my pants down low like that, this sounds like a good idea, but the low hanging pants fad is just that…a fad. And they will end up spending more money in congress to combat the NEXT trend they don’t agree with.

    i currently have an associates degree in criminal justice and what young men don’t realize is that the pants sagging represents prison mentality. In prison you are not allowed to have a belt to keep you pants up. Is that where the young men want to end up? Finish high school get a degree in something and then make something out of your life.

  2. Brenda/Floyd says:

    I agree totally with your comment, this law should be passed in all states, fad or not.

    just because you have your pants sagging does not mean you will end up in jail. Having your pants sagging just does not look right and no one wants to see you but. This has nothing to do with education it has to do with just pulling your pants up instead of allowing them to sag and exposing your buttocks.

    To piggy back off of Yolanda, not only is it a prison mentality but if you look back in history to the days of slavery when the male slaves were NOT ALLOWED to wear belts as a hindrance… if they tried to run their pants would fall down and/or because they had to hold their pants while trying to escape they could not run as fast therefore being captured and murdered…I am so baffled as to why young men (and women) would want to deprive themselves of advancement by looking the part of a vagrant…sagging pants is just not cute…SMDH

    SAGGING WAS STARTED BY DAVID “STRINGBEAN” AKEMAN, AN AMERICAN COUNTRY MUSIC BANJO PLAYER AND COMEDY MUSICIAN BEST KNOWN FOR HIS ROLE ON HEE-HAW,COMEDY TELEVISION. STRINGBEAN, THE REAL ORIGINATOR OF SLABBING AND HIP-HOP FASHION.(GOOGLE STRINGBEAN, SEE PICTURES FOR YOURSELF.)THOSE WHO SAY IT GOT STARTED IN PRISON STARTED THAT LIE TO LOOK “HARD.”

  7. Lucy says:

    @Tudy Frutti – that is the most ridiculous statement ever. You are saying “Stringbean” from the 60’s and 70’s (who also TUCKED his shirt in for a comedic effect) started slabbing? You google Stringbean and slabbing – all you get is slabbing extra butter on your beans. SMH

  8. Bro.Tudy DuRiso says:

    LUCY, YOU ARE FULL OF POO-POO IF YOU THINK SAGGING GOT STARTED IN PRISON. I

    HAVE WORKED WITH AT-RISK CHILDREN FOR 25 PLUS YEARS TAKING THEM TO

    PRISON IN AN EFFORD TO MAKE GOOD RESPECTABLE CITIZENS OF THEM. THE

    PRISON INMATES WERE WELL DRESSED WITH BELTS ON, AND SHOES SHINED. ANY

    RIDICULOUS EXCUSE TO KEEP OUR KIDS IN THE DARK ABOUT HOW SILLY THEY LOOK.

    LUCY, IT’S PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT MAKE SAGGIN A FASHION STATEMENT, BUT IT’S

    NOT! ALL SLABBERS NEED IS A DIAPER BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE THEY JUST HAD A

    BOWEL MOVEMENT. STRINGBEAN AT LEASE RESPECTED HIS COMMUNITY BY TUCKING

    HIS SHIRT IN HIS PANTS. NEVER THE LESS STRINGBEAN LOOKS LIKE A CLOWN,

    SLABBERS LOOK LIKE CLOWNS ALSO. LUCY, PLEASE GO AND FIND (CHARLIE BROWN)

    MAYBE YOUR STATEMENT WILL IMPRESS HIM, BECAUSE I’M NOT IMPRESSED.

    CARE OF HIS COMMUNITY.
