Good News: Judge Rules Looking Like an Idiot a Fundamental Right

Let's face it, pretty much everything is a right these days, so this comes as no surprise. Besides, you want to change behavior? Then ridicule is usually your best weapon. Being young and stupid is part of being young and stupid and these kids typically grow out of it and move on to dress like normal human beings once they realize nobody is going to employ them when they shuffle around with their pants around their ankles.
You have the right to look ridiculous.

A Bronx judge has thrown out a summons issued against a Bronx man for wearing saggy pants, finding that "the Constitution still leaves some opportunity for people to be foolish if they so desire."

Judge Ruben Franco said that although Julio Martinez may have offended the fashion police with his low-hanging and underwear-exposing pants, his manner of dress didn't deserve a ticket from a cop.

"While most of us may consider it distasteful, and indeed foolish, to wear one's pants so low as to expose the underwear . . . people can dress as they please, wear anything, so long as they do not offend public order and decency," the judge wrote.
