Baggy Pants The Downfall Of A Burglar

Baggy Pants The Downfall Of A Burglar

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities said a burglary suspect was literally caught with his pants down while trying to run away. A deputy responded to an alarm at a convenient store early Tuesday morning and reported seeing a 37-year-old man exiting through a smashed-out front door while carrying several packs of cigarettes."

The Associated Press

When I see a young boy with his pants hanging halfway down his butt, I pray to the gods that he will trip and fall down. The baggy pants look doesn`t offend my moral code, it`s an outrage against my sense of aesthetics. But I guess everything is relative, in the 1970`s I wore striped bellbottoms, a shirt open to my navel, platform shoes, and I sported a perm.

The youth can be forgiven for their flamboyant attire, but there is no excuse for a 37-year-old man to be wearing baggy pants that keep sliding down to his knees. Especially if he is committing a burglary, and needs to make a quick getaway.

I`m thriled this clown tripped and is now behind bars. This loser caused hundreds of dollars of damage to a convenience store just to steal a few packs of cigarettes. This burglar`s prospects for a long life don`t look very promising, he will die of cancer in a few years, be shot to death by an irate business owner, or be killed by the fashion police.
