Kenneth Smith will think twice when he next dresses to go out in Riviera Beach, Florida. The twenty-nine-year-old was arrested for the unspeakable offense of wearing baggy pants, the most recent example of the over-criminalization of life in America.
Riviera Beach is one of a number of city to criminalize baggy pants or any outfit that involves the “exposure of undergarment in public”. He was also charged with disorderly conduct and faces a $150 fine for this clothing style. If he is wise, he will immediate appear in nothing but a thong, which is apparently fine.
If he is arrested again, the fashion tzars of Riviera Beach could put him in jail for 30 days. Legislators appear to be in the midst of a spasm of criminal laws covering everything from missing parent-teacher meetings to cloths styles, here and here.
