Eh, that's not LBYM. This guy had no means, hence no pants.

Excerpt follows.
Percy had $118 to his name and the prison does sell clothes to outgoing inmates who have lost their original clothing items. However, Percy said the clothes are so expensive that they would have left him penniless, unable to even buy himself a meal.

PS. He however qualifies to join the ER club. See this.

Means or no means, the living part is pretty dismal for that guy.

It almost makes you wonder if he'll reoffend so he can get his room, board and health care back.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
