Oklahoma Inmates Are Dashing In Pastels And Stripes

Ooh, la-la! If I ever end up in the pokey, I hope it’s in Cleveland County. There, Oklahoma inmates have been required to wear pink top and yellow striped bottoms prison garb for the last 16 months. The orange jumpsuit of yesterday is so passé. Still, the new pastels must be a bit embarrassing to rock when you’re trying to thug out while doing time, no? Apparently, this is no clink-y fashion statement or an attempt to humiliate prisoners into never wanting to return to prison again, prison management says. It simply makes prisoners easier to spot if they decide to flee the premises. “If one of them slips over the wall,” Undersheriff Rhett Burnett told NewsOK.com, “we want to know about it right away.” If the warden doesn’t get these escapees, we bet the fashion police will.
