Down With the Struggle, or Just Down With the Pants?
This case is one of many similar cases that seem to take place quite often. I have spoken with a few police officers about how easy it is to apprehend someone whose pants are falling down, and they don't seem to understand why any thug would wear sagging pants, and then attempt to commit a crime when his only means of escape is running.
They are not complaining, because they know that sagging pants make their jobs a lot easier.
Maybe these thugs want to appear like they "represent" and be 'down with the struggle' when committing a crime?
