This is nothing new. For at least 20 years pulled-down pants have been an eyesore that crosses all color barriers. The only spot of redemption in all this: one kid once had his pants all the way down to his ankles. Then he tried to rob a convenience store. Tripped over his own pants during the getaway. At least the police were decent enough to give him a jacket to cover his head, and a length of rope to hold his pants up.
