Fashion Police and the 1ST Amendment!
OK this is almost too funny or hard to believe but it is true. Cities are passing laws about fashion, which should be illegal as they are nothing more than Jim Crow Laws and a direct violation of our constitution. They are also being passed easily in the South (home of the KKK) and target young African American males.
Six LA cities / parishes including Shreveport and Alexandria as well as Hawkinsville GA have adopted bans on sagging / baggy pants for young men.?Propsed bans include Trenton & Pleasantville NJ, Charlotte, Dallas, Balitmore, Atlanta, in Georgia Rome, Brunswick, Plains, Duncan OK, Yonkers NY.
This is just plain crazy! We cannot have fashion police. Some people don't like the baggy pants but it is not as bad a skin tight pants. Ok so the boys look a little like the seven dwarfs - so what. At some point Americans have to stand up and honor the consitution and protect our rights as citizens. These laws include jail time .. of course that would be time in USA's for profit prisons that are traded on the NY Stock Exchange. Just for the record I wrote a resolution with Reverend Thomas Ziegert, United Methodist Church, proposing a ban on for profit prisons and the United Methodist Church has picked it up.
The USA has more people in jail than any other country in the world and penalties for percieved fashion errors range from warnings, fines and jail time. What fashion experts were consulted for these laws? Who qualified them? Who passed them?
I think anyone involved with these laws should be charged with some sort of a crime .. maybe treason?
Just a refresher.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I would interpret this to include?the right to be secure in their clothes. Just for a kick go back to when this was written and see what the fashion was then .. for men.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
FASHION LAWS WOULD FALL UNDER UNUSUAL PUNISHMENTS. Our?founding fathers could never have guessed this would be an issue.
Young people need to regiser to vote and then VOTE these ignorant?politicians out of office!
