St. Louis Alderwoman Pushing To Ban Pants Below the Waist

Is it time to outlaw exposed butts and underwear in the city of St. Louis?

That's a question Alderwoman Marlene Davis is raising tonight with a "community discussion" on her controversial proposal to ban saggy pants in the city.

To Davis, it's a no-brainer. "This is not a style," she tells Daily RFT. "This is an absolutely vulgar display of disrespect not only to every other human being that has to look at it but also to themselves.... It's totally out of control."
