Wearing Saggy Pants? Well, You Get What You Deserve, Then

pullurpantsup.jpgIn Florida, though it’s not yet a petty crime to wear your pants halfway down your ass, it still might get you shot. Why? Cause that’s how they roll in Florida!

A Jacksonville man is accused of shooting an 18-year-old after telling him to pull his jeans up.
It happened about 7:15 p.m. Saturday at Cross Creek Apartments on Manotak Avenue. Police arrived to find the 54-year-old suspect standing next to the victim. The suspect had a gun in his waistband but kept his hands up for police.
Several witnesses told police the man followed David A. Mitchell into the courtyard from the pool telling him to pull his pants up. The two began to argue, and the younger man pushed the suspect before being shot in the stomach, according to the arrest report.
Mitchell, who was released from the hospital the same day, told the Times-Union Monday that the bullet is still in his side but the doctors say he’ll be fine. He said he had never seen the man and knew his shorts were sagging. He said he pulled them up, but the man said it wasn’t enough and just kept coming. So he pushed him off and tried to walk away.

This is why it’s always a good idea to wear suspenders, folks. They’re fashionable, and they might just save your life. Now get off my goddamn lawn.
