The Rev. Jesse Jackson doesn't think too highly of Hinds County Supervisor Kenny Stokes' proposal to fine kids 10 bucks for wearing their pants a certain way.
Rev. Jackson spoke at this morning's convocation for returning Jackson Public Schools Employees, who reported today for their first day of work in the new school year. School starts on Friday.
If local leaders don't focus on what's important in children's lives,"People will be arguing about sagging pants and not sagging (access to) computers. Sagging pants not sagging salaries."
The line drew applause from the crowd of 4,000 JPS workers. A Hinds County supervisors' http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2012/aug/06/criminalizing-saggy-pants/">meeting yesterday drew public comments from both sides of the sagging pants controversial issue.
