'Orange Is The New Black,' So A Michigan Jail Needs New Jumpsuits

Orange may be the new black on Netflix, but not at the Saginaw County Jail in Saginaw, Michigan. Sheriff William Federspiel said he started buying new black-and-white jumpsuits for inmates after the traditional orange jumpsuits — featured in the Netflix dramedy series Orange Is the New Black — became "cool." Federspiel told M-live, "It's because as you see shows on television, like Orange Is the New Black, 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. It's a concern because 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." Federspiel said that some people in Saginaw had even put "Property of the Saginaw County Jail" on the back of their fake jumpsuits, though it wasn't clear just how many people enjoyed looking like prisoners at the mall.
