   St. Louis residents are speaking out about a proposed city-wide ban on sagging pants.  More than 50 people showed up to Long Middle School Tuesday night to talk about Aldermanic Bill 117.  It was the second such forum hosted by the bill's sponsor, Alderwoman Marlene Davis.

   Davis had originally proposed fines of $100-500, but after hearing from citizens, she's now looking at alternatives.

   "There needs to be some consequences, maybe community service, something like that," Davis said.  "And we have a system in place that maybe we could use, called the Neighborhood Accountability Board."  

   Davis says about 70 percent of the people attending two public forums seem to approve of the ban.  She'll now present their comments to the city's public safety department.
