Saginaw Police Worry ‘Orange is The New Black’ is Causing Fasion Issue
The Netflix show 'Orange is the New Black' has started a fashion trend that is forcing the Saginaw County Jail to change their uniforms.
Fans of the show have begun to wear orange jumpsuits in public. This is a problem for Sheriff William Federspiel. His first concern, is that he never wants Saginaw citizens to wonder if someone is an inmate or not.
The nurses at the local hospital have also jumped on the trend, wearing a more relaxed uniform. This is a problem because the jail regularly transports inmates to the hospital for medical treatment. The Sheriff is concerned that the inmates will blend in with the hospital staff.
What is the solution to this odd fashion trend? The Sheriff is changing the county jail jumpsuits back to black and white stripes. The horizontal stripes will be back at the Saginaw County Jail until the orange jumpsuit trend passes.
