These Convicts Might Just Make You Smile…

April 24, 2010

Just in case being in prison doesn’t sound bad enough Adams County Jail in Illinois has changed the uniforms from pants and white t-shirts to red and white or green and white striped jumpsuits, reminiscent of Santa’s little elves.  (Any bets on what the prison-issue slippers look like?)

Given this particular prison’s history, this seems like an outward attempt to make the convicts look (and therefore feel) a little less threatening.

…oh, and maybe make their time in prison fairly miserable…  Chief Deputy Fred Kientzle said  “We want to discourage them from coming back to the Adams County Jail.  We will take care of them, make sure they get their medicine and proper medical care, but this isn’t a hotel.”
