Make Sure Your Pants Are Around Your Waist In Massachusetts
A PSA warns youths that they could spend up to three years in prison for wearing baggy pants.
In a bizarre new PSA from the Massachusetts advocacy group, a police officer says into the camera, ““So you think you look pretty good wearing your pants like that, don’t you? Underwear exposed, hip hop style.”
He proceeds to explain that in Massachusetts, wearing saggy pants could get you up a $300 fine, 3 years in state prison or 2 years in a county jail. The officer doesn’t go into any more detail, but fine print at the bottom of the ad does reference Chapter 272, Section 16 of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts General Law, which states the aforementioned punishments for “gross lewdness and lascivious behavior.”
