Seems the best way to sell legislation these days is that it'll be good for the economy. That's how Rep. Hazelle Rogers (D-Lauderhill) pitched her so-called "sagging pants" bill to members of the House's K-20 education innovation subcommittee today.

What is wrong with people these days.
A rape happened, and you want to discuss school dress codes?
An 11 year old girl, (she is just a child) got raped, never mind what she was wearing, I only want punishment that the rapists deserve, forget the clothes issue, that is for later discussions. Dont blame the parents of the child, because whatever she was wearing has nothing to do with the crime.
If you are involved in an auto accident, and have fractured ribbs, and fractured legs, would you want to tell the doctor that you have a headache too?
Rep. Kathleen Passidomo (R-Naples) is a stupid woman who is insensitive to the crime on hand. Someone should tell her that she stop talking least important issues and is not the way to address the seriousness of the crime.

Clothing issues are for parents and children to discuss and if need be for schools to set limits. No laws need be enacted, just some reason.

Passing a clothes bill by the House Committee is the least interest to me.
I want total condemnation for the rapists, and full sympathies for the victim - child and her parents.
STOP BLAMING THE CHILD AND THE PARENTS.

If you are disgusted like I am, please speak up, and let the law makers and the justice system know that we are not interested in their trivial observations.

It doesn't matter what that girl was wearing! That doesn't give ANYONE justification to rape her!
