Well, with 3 layers of boxers on, he's certainly not exposing himself. I would say that he is much more covered up than someone wearing a bikini or a speedo.
I'm fine with busting people for indecent exposure, but if they aren't exposed then we should leave 'em alone. Just because we think it looks dorky doesn't mean it should be against the law.
And before someone says something about "they are called "underwear" for a reason"... so are the long john shirts that people typically wear under tee shirts in cold weather. Those people are exposing an "undergarment" as well... should they be busted for indecent exposure?
Maybe I'm coming on too strong about this, but I really don't agree with the "I don't like that, so let's make it illegal" mentality. Makes about as much sense to me as the "guns scare me, so let's make them illegal" mentality.
Saggy pants and 3 layers of boxers never hurt anyone. It doesn't matter if it is a style favored by gangbangers.
You could even extrapolate it to something like this: Baggy pants don't rob people... people with baggy pants rob people. Sounds a whole lot like... guns don't kill people... people with guns kill people. The baggy pants aren't a problem. The behavior of some people who wear them is the problem.
