You Can Do Anything You Want! - Example 1

Like I said, "You Can Do Anything You Want." For instance, you can wear your pants any way you want and no one can tell you otherwise. If they do, you have the right to assault them--even if you're a young man and you need to assault a woman.

Sagging pants lead to student's arrest
By John Tuohy

A 14-year-old high school student who wouldn't pull up his pants was arrested Tuesday after taking a swing at a police officer.

Indianapolis Public School Police Officer Dawn Austin had asked the John Marshall High School student to pull up his pants and tuck in his shirt but the student ignored her and kept walking. The boy also ignored the vice-principal and a teacher who also asked him to stop and tuck in his shirt, according to an IPS police report.

At the end of the hallway, Officer Damon Boyd tried to make the boy stop. When the student refused, he told him he would be arrested. The student struggled with Boyd and knocked him against a locker.

Austin tried to put handcuffs on the boy and he started swinging at her, with the dangling handcuffs hitting her in the hand, according to the report.

After officers subdued the boy, he was charged with resisting law enforcement, battery of a police officer and disorderly conduct. Boyd tore his shirt and injured his left hand and left shoulder. Austin hurt her right hand. Both officers went to a medical clinic. The boy was sent to the Marion County Arrestee Processing Center
Pants on the ground! Pants on the ground! Lookin' like a fool with yo pants on the ground! Sheesh.

That's great that you quoted the "Pants on the Ground" song from American Idol.

And why haven't you shared this story with our son who's "lookin like a fool with his pants on the ground"? In fact, they regularly almost fall of in front of his Great Grandma Ruth no less. And he doesn't care. Sheese.
