To the Editor: Recently while stopped at a traffic light in Corsicana behind a police officer, I witnessed two teenagers walking across the intersection. Both boys had shorts pulled down exposing their underwear, and as they were directly in front of the officer, the first boy pulled his pants down until his rear was bare. I began honking my horn in disapproval. The light turned green and the officer turned and left. The two boys walked away laughing and high-fiving each other.
I was in total shock and disbelief of what I had just witnessed. I thought to myself that there was no way that the officer could not have seen what I saw.
My question is this — is there a city ordinance that prohibits this type of behavior? If not, then a new law should be established. I would have liked to have witnessed these actions in the 1950’s and 1960’s when I was growing up. I am old school, and this is both obscene and totally disrespectful. This is a big problem, so let’s fix it.
Parents need to take control of this situation at home as part of “rearing their children,” instead of blowing it off or ignoring what is going on around them. Since they do not, it is up to the city to step in and “babysit” by making a law against public indecency.
