‘Saggy pants’ ban ruled unconstitutional in Florida

Remember the whole "saggy pants should be outlawed" discussion here in Dallas a few months ago? Well, that issue is back in the news, this time in Florida, where a circuit court judge ruled that the city of Riviera Beach’s saggy pants ban is unconstitutional. "Somebody help me," the judge said before delivering his decision, presumably a reference to how idiotic he thought the city ordinance was. Residents of Riviera Beach approved the ordinance in March after supporters collected nearly 5,000 signatures to put the measure on the ballot (I guess this ballot initiative thing is popping up all over).
