“They’re banking on a technicality rather than doing the right thing,” Austin Firefighters Association President Bob Nicks said of the case.

The city says Crockett Foster missed the state deadline to file a workers’ compensation claim within one year of his diagnosis.

Leave them alone!! The police say it is way easier to catch them when they try to run.

While i would love to ban this. It personally annoys the hell out of me but i think it’s targeting a specific group. What about chicks that wear these yoga pants and you can see her fallopian tubes?

That looks so stupid. If you want to do that , do it in the house not in public. You can't get hired looking like that

What's the difference Btwn sagging pants and a teenage girl or woman with booty shorts and a low cut top?? 🤔

Gotta love how the party of "small government" always looks for new & inventive ways to regulate individuals. Never businesses, or weapons of war, only the way I choose to wear my clothes, or who I go to bed with at night, or whether a woman can decide what's best for her situation.

It would be awesome if they put the same amount of time and effort into passing law's that actually make a difference

Yep. When a guys butt is hanging out his pants, it’s disgusting.

I do not think it’s the under paid law enforcement officers duty to raise YOUR children. Finger flick your child on top of the head and don’t give them the option of how to wear his pants improperly. Good grief!!!

There’s more important things to worry about than saggy pants!!! How about keeping our kids safe at schools ????!?!?

Well on a brighter note. If they go to jail or prison the other inmates will know that they are available for lovin

Saggy pants are stupid in my opinion but who cares!?! Let me see... Gun violence... Saggy pants... Gun violence... Saggy pants? Really?!? Are you kidding me?!?

Let's outlaw every little thing we don't like or agree with! America has become full of pansies....😂

Why??? Women go around with their breasts barely covered over the nipples, butt cheeks hanging out of too short shorts. At least with baggy pants,no actual flesh is exposed.

Yes and I hope Texas does the same thing . it looks nasty How so they walk

While I don’t like saggy pants, there are more pressing issues such as gun violence, gangs, drugs etc. “Banning” saggy pants is only putting a bandaid on a bigger problem

IF just half of the idiots knew what it means in prisons--They would pull them up in a heartbeat.!!!

Lol....if you cant outlaw abortion..or semi automatic assault rifles then what makes you think you can outlaw how people dress 😂😂

Bad parenting skills should be outlawed. My parents would kill me if I walked around with my pants like that when I was growing up. I had self respect and my parents raised me better than that. Smh

Why wear a pair of jeans, down to your knees, then three pairs of something else underneath, plus boxer shorts, why not just stick to the shorts? I dont get it.

The city just trying to make a buck . I know of some families including mine in Houston that would be very happy if they picked up the hookers and drug dealers that are all over our neighborhoods. They are gonna start ticketing people in shopping centers and malls you know where the suburbs are . No one in the hood will be getting ticketed .

South Carolina isn’t trying to do this. You’re citing fake internet bs.

Thats it fake news. Post some senseless no sense about britches. As if there werent bigger issues?! As an employer, Id never hire someone who cant dress as professionally. End of story. Next.

Yea!!! I will protest and march for this one Lisa Love Schuble!!! I absolutely hate this!!! Even the stupid offenders in prison with elastisized pants do this and I HATE it Raymond Calvillo!

Anything to make money off , give a ticket for idont like it looks trashy ,but theres bigger thing to fix like the guns

we cannot legislate moarlity... of course there IS a school of thought that says "LET THEM HAVE SAGGY PANTS!" this allows one to determine a person of poor moral charachter without having to actively engage in dialougue!-)

Any sound clips with TSP long tubes, MS3 cam and PRC 5.3 Stage 2.5 heads? If it's less raspy than LM I need it :)
