A Baton Rouge Metro Council member wants the parish to boost a public awareness campaign against men who wear their pants so low that their boxer shorts show.

Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle is introducing a slogan for the campaign: "Low pants, no chance".

Councilman Rodney "Smokie" Bourgeois and Councilwomen Donna Collins-Lewis and Ronnie Edwards say they support Mercelle's
proposal.

However, Councilman Scott Wilson says proper dress is something that should be dealt with at home, rather than by the
council.
