Brooklyn Pol Fights Crack By Way of Sagging Pants: Gothamist
Brooklyn politician Eric Adams is hoping get crack use down by urging Crown Heights youth to pull their pants up. To that end he’s spending $2,000 in campaign cash to erect six giant bill boards issuing the commandment “Stop the Sag!” There’s an accompanying Youtube video (below) in which Adams announces “If we raise our pants we raise our image,” and “We are better than this.” Supposedly the trend has its origins in prison culture, where inmates’ pants sag because they aren’t permitted to wear belts.
Adams himself says he’s never sagged. "On a practical level, how do they even walk?" said the perplexed ex-cop. One Crown Height male explained: "It's more comfortable below the hip," 19-year-old Saquan Spaulding told the News. "It's a young thing."
