Opening argument:

Sagging pants should not be banned because people have a right to present themselves however they want. Nudity is allowed to an extent such as exposing legs and being shirtless. Some argue "well no one wants to see your underwear..", but no one is forcing you to look at it. If i walk into a strip-club, i can't complain about indecent exposure because it's the environment. Moreover, you don't have to expose your boxers/underwear, you can simply wear a long shirt to cover it or a belt to keep it at a reasonable level. Some argue "it's associated with criminal activity.." but in our culture, it's just a fashion. The history behind it is irrelevant. Just as many of our holidays and child lullabies had violent/pagan origins, but are now used for pure entertainment, it is the same with sagging pants. The history has no relevance, what matters is how it is being used in our current society.

You mean now he has to deal with dishonest observers who can say "your BOP does not interest me, therefore it's wrong". BOP is based entirely on eye witness accounts - this is the poorest form of evidence in the history of mankind.

Down with BOP. Can't give the burden of proof when ignorance's burden is infinite.

Couldn't you have just said "Sagging Pants should be banned" and made yourself Con?
