If there's anything that makes you feel old, it's when you go through the transition from not noticing guys with jeans buckled below their asses, to wondering how on earth those damn things stay up, and finally to: "God, don't they know they look ridiculous??" Last year, a cop who was clearly in that last stage of growth and prudishness issued a summons to Bronx resident Julio Martinez for wearing his pants at a gravity-defying level. The charge of disorderly conduct for "his pants down below his buttocks exposing underwear [and] potentially showing private parts" was brought before a court this week. Judge Ruben Franco threw it out, saying: "The Constitution still leaves some opportunity for people to be foolish if they so desire." Also, FYI, the "trend of wearing pants well below the waistline is believed to have its roots in this country's prison system where inmates are issued uniforms which are often too big and the wearing of belts is prohibited due to safety concerns." We all learned something today.
