Suburban Fashion Po-Lice

I’m sure that the Lynwood IL police are just thrilled that their police academy training is going to be put to use making sure that guys are not showing more than 3 inches of their underwear in public. Lynwood has just passed a law that levies $25 fines on people wearing excessively baggy underwear exposing pants. Since this fashion is favored by a mostly African American and Latino demographic, I suppose some police officers will relish yet another excuse to harass these young men. But most, the vast majority of police men and women would much prefer to be protecting us from real criminals rather than acting as fashion police.
