The only war that matters is the one on baggy pants

I'd like to congratulate the fine men in blue of Flint, Michigan, for having solved all crime in the city. At least I'm assuming they have, since their police chief has joined the brave battle against the bold and the beltless. From Click On Detroit:

FLINT, Mich. -- Flint police will now be arresting people who wear sagging pants.

Police Chief David Dicks said anyone wearing pants or shorts that expose their buttocks can be arrested for indecent exposure, according to the memo.

Dicks said the immoral "self expression" goes beyond free speech; it rises to the crime of indecent exposure.

The American Civil Liberties Union is looking at the new law as a possible attempt at racially targeting people.

Those who wear sagging pants will fined and possible spend a year in jail.

Indecent exposure? No really, is that the best they can do? If actual ass exposure were involved I would be the biggest cheerleader ever for baggy pants, but we all know "saggers" only show off a few inches of underwear. Is there really any doubt this is racial targeting?
