Gary proposes anti-sagging pants ordinance

We’ve all seen it: kids walking around with pants that hang well below the waist…almost to the mid-thigh in some cases. Several municipalities in Illinois have passed ordinances banning sagging pants in public. Chicago’s city council tried to do the same three years ago, to no avail. Now Gary, Ind. wants to outlaw what many people say is a fashion choice. Independent journalist Gregory Tejeda has been covering the story, and he joins us with the details. (Flickr/Newtown grafitti)
