Viewers Voice: Banning saggy pants in Florida
COCOA, Fla. - The city of Cocoa's mayor is trying to put a stop to a saggy pants ordinance.
Violators could face a fine of 25 dollars or more if they are caught with their pants three inches or more below their waist.
The city's new Mayor, Henry Parrish, is against the move saying it would lead to costly lawsuits because it's a violation of civil rights and it would create profiling.
"We're going to move the town forward and do great things for the city and we don't need this kind of liability or spend one second defending a lawsuit when I could spend those seconds or minutes or hours defending a better issue", said Parrish.
