How stupid, especially because the guys showing gym shorts as opposed to undershorts can go on with business as usual, while looking the same as the undershort showing guys.
What's up with the sagging = criminals mindset? Wow... They may have a higher chance of being targeted or caught, but not necessarily of committing crimes based simply on their clothing choices. I can't even imagine what it is like to choose to avoid someone based on what they are wearing - well, unless they are wearing something like an Uzi on their back. I might steer clear of someone like that. And maybe someone wearing a hate slogan. But that would be because they are *saying* something pretty directly to anyone who can/does read.
As for stealing, what about the ladies with the big bags? You could practically fit a coffee maker in some of them. Should women carrying shoulderbags in excess of xx by xx inches be fined as well? Should there be laws against big bags?
Well, I guess I don't care too much for fining people for what they wear, and for making clothing choices illegal. And I'm pretty sick of reading about all this profiling of young men. I don't think that ordinance targets young men of color, but it does target young men who do not choose to dress mainstream. (Although, isn't sagging pretty mainstream by now? It's about three seconds before it goes out of style, probably.)
