Orange is the New Black

Netflix's "Orange is the New Black" is immensely popular in Michigan. So popular that a warden at a Michigan prison has replaced the orange prison issue clothing for black-and-white stripes, USA Today reports.

"The name of the show, 'Orange is the New Black,' is saying it's cool to wear orange, and the show is enormously popular in Michigan," Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel said.

Federspiel said the new clothing change also resolves the problem of inmates being mistaken for civilians who sport the orange uniforms as urban street wear.

"We haven't had any escapes, and I don't want any escapes," Federspiel said.

The inmates don't share the warden's enthusiasm for the uniform switch.

"They think it makes them look like criminals," he said.

    GTFOH. I have not seen anyone walking around in orange prison garb. Is that what they're rocking in Saginaw which has been a crime ridden area since long before Orange Is The New Black came out? Sounds to me like he just wants some attention.

    They need to be more concerned with Aramark serving inmates food with maggots in it and abusing them.

    @Afiya
    Michigan outsourced food services to Aramark and since they've been there (Januaury of this year) they've had food shortages, served food with maggots in them, showing up to work drunk smuggling in contraband, and having sex with inmates. Out of 300 some odd employees 74 have been suspended and banned from working in prisons.
