Riviera Beach Police Having Arrested Every Violent Offender in City, Move On To Arresting Men Whose Pants Sag

September 12, 2008

Just kidding, I’m sure there’s probably several violent offenders with arrest warrants roaming Riviera Beach. But, dear residents, fear not, for your police department is protecting you from anyone that is showing between 2 to 5 inches of their underwear by sagging their pants. This very necessary ordinance was passed after several recent drive-by boxer showings that resulted in the deaths of 7 people. Those poor victims’ memory will be honored by Riviera Beach’s finest getting those dangerous pairs of underwear off the streets.

So far, 11 people have been arrested, and charged with a misdemeanor and face fines of up to $150.00. Repeat offenders could face up to 30 days in jail. Yes, this is your tax dollars at work. That’s some fine police work, Lou…….

I shouldn’t be too harsh on the police, they don’t make these asinine laws, but they will be the ones who will certainly face an even more hostile community as a result of enforcing the ordinance. Guess which racial group this law has affected the most so far? The collected mugshots of 8 of the 11 arrested men are shown below. What’s that ringing sound? I think it’s the ACLU.

Hike those sagging pants or you just might get shot

June 25, 2008

A Jacksonville man is accused of shooting an 18-year-old after telling him to pull his jeans up.

It happened about 7:15 p.m. Saturday at Cross Creek Apartments on Manotak Avenue. Police arrived to find the 54-year-old suspect standing next to the victim. The suspect had a gun in his waistband but kept his hands up for police.

Several witnesses told police the man followed David A. Mitchell into the courtyard from the pool telling him to pull his pants up. The two began to argue, and the younger man pushed the suspect before being shot in the stomach, according to the arrest report.

Mitchell, who was released from the hospital the same day, told the Times-Union Monday that the bullet is still in his side but the doctors say he’ll be fine. He said he had never seen the man and knew his shorts were sagging. He said he pulled them up, but the man said it wasn’t enough and just kept coming. So he pushed him off and tried to walk away.

John C. Constantin , who lives at the Westside apartments, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. According to the arrest report, he told police it was self-defense after he was assaulted for telling Mitchell to pull his pants up.

Family reached at his home Monday offered their apologies and said Constantin was remorseful for what happened. He remains in jail on $100,000 bail.
