A Gardena City Councilman introduced a motion to making wearing baggy pants illegal, allowing police to hand out citations for such a violation. "Councilman Steve Bradford introduced the measure, arguing wearing pants that hang below the waist, exposing skin or underwear, amounts to indecent exposure," the Daily Breeze reported but Bradford told KCAL9 he introduced this as a way to start the conversation among residents. Last night, the council was to possibly vote on the motion, but tabled it to a future meeting. "This is the stupidest, most ridiculous, asinine ordinance this city has ever considered," one resident exclaimed at last night's meeting.
