FLINT, Mich., June 27 (UPI) -- The new police chief in Flint, Mich., has a new policy on low-riding pants -- those that ride low enough to expose the rear end can lead to arrest.
Interim Police Chief David Dicks said that he has been getting a lot of complaints from Flint citizens sick of looking at buttocks, Newhouse News Service reported.
"This immoral self-expression goes beyond free speech," Dicks said. "It rises to the crime of indecent exposure/disorderly persons."
Dicks said that any police officer who spots someone with pants that hang too low and show too much can make an arrest. Those caught in the act face up to three months in jail and fines of up to $500 if convicted.
Greg Gibbs, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union, said that people tempted to test the limits should realize that not all clothing is protected by the First Amendment.
Critics of some attempts to ban sagging pants have suggested that the effort is racist because the style is most fashionable among young blacks.
You can't make this stuff up.
We’re police not plumbers!
So, are all plumbers to be arrested now?
Is this satire?
Just askin’ on account of the Chief’s name.
Not a “Right to Bare Arms and Stuff” Ping!
It is hard to beat the old timers here.
Best pair of thread-titles:

So, any fashion statement blacks want to create will automatically be deemed acceptable by virtue of their perceived oppression?
I'm getting really really tired of this defense and the whole race card thing......One of these days, I'm gonna let loose with my own little "discussion on race" and I'll most assuredly end up being banned from every board I post on and quite possibly the entire internet!
“Critics of some attempts to ban sagging pants have suggested that the effort is racist because the style is most fashionable among young blacks”
Not a true statement. I work in “white” suburbia as a teacher and the white students are wearing this fashion.
We write up/discipline students for showing their underwear...girls or boys. When girls wear the low-riders and show undies, it should be no better/no worse than when the boys show their undies.
But it’s hard to discipline some of these children when their parents arrive wearing very little and showing too much (moms showing bra straps).
Fat Man at Bench: It was a bullet, wasn’t it?
Forrest Gump: A bullet?
Fat Man at Bench: That jumped up and bit you.
Forrest Gump: Oh, yes sir. Bit me right in the buttocks. They said it was a million dollar wound, but the army must keep that money ‘cause I still haven’t seen a nickel of that million dollars.

Glad to see that the Police have rid Flint Michigan of real crime and have the time and oppurtunity to fool with peoples butts.......
They’re just doing their part to conserve fuel. About an hour before starting their trip he fed her eggs, beans and cabbage.
So they got pulled over for evading gas taxes?
This is what's also wrong with our racist drug laws. "The Man" knows that weed and crack are most fashionable among young blacks.
The biggest bunch of exposed arses on display are the fully dressed and everyday parading the halls of Capitol Hill in DC.
Here in Kalifornicate — many of the young ladies are wearing shorts, jeans, sweats, slacks and skirts with the waist lines dropped so low and tops so high, one is provided a tantalizing preview look at some of the loveliest and buff butts, waist lines, tummies and backs in the nation....
Keep in mind — this is Los Gatos — so the ladies are not only beautiful, but classy, well groomed, no tattoos and will almost always smile back and respond to a cheerful “good morning”..
Morning visits to my favorite grocery store in Los Gatos can be the highlight of my day.....
It’s exactly what a very old and damaged warrior needs to get his heart started and spirits lifted in the morning!!!!
I will fight to the death, to defend their right to flaunt their superior attributes!
Cool. I’m down wid dat.
I can see the headlines now: “Chief Dicks arrests Gay Pride paraders.”
It's nice to know that creeping puritanism hasn't reached Los Gatos. I visited there once - stayed at La Casa del Gatos - the ladies were charming and lovely.
At any rate - it's good to hear all of the other crimes in Flint have been solved.
I can see the headlines now: “Dicks sticks gays in the pokey”

Hey, Ed Rains is our local weather man.
Rule Three: I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, In order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.
Oh, get real and do some homework. Many, many, many jurisdictions have proven time and time again that failure to crack down on the basic disorderly stuff goes hand in hand with a worsening true crime environment. And the opposite is true.
Plus there is no zero-sum situation here-—i.e., it’s not impossible to ticket people for showing their buttocks AND police “real” (your word) crime at the same time.
My young white suburban co-workers wear this style. One boy wears gym shorts under his saggy jeans. The other boy’s underwear shows. Last summer I asked him to move some stuff for me. While he had both hands full with a five-gallon kettle of chili, his pants fell down.
I just took the chili and turned away. If I said anything or reacted I probably would have been charged with harassment or something.
Looks like the LEO’s are “cracking down on crack”. :^D
