Now inmates at a Michigan county jail wear black and white stripes+ READ ARTICLE
A local Michigan sheriff is afraid that Orange Is The New Black, the hit Netflix series about female prisoners, has made orange jumpsuits a popular fashion statement. So now inmates at Saginaw County Jail have to wear black-and-white striped jumpsuits instead of orange ones, according to The Saginaw News and MLive.com.
“Some people think it’s cool to look like an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail with wearing all orange jumpsuits out at the mall or in public,” Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel told The Saginaw News and MLive.com. “We do have our inmates out sometimes doing work in the public, and I don’t want anyone to confuse them or have them walk away.”
