Black and white is the new orange? Sheriff buys jail jumpsuits after orange becomes ‘cool’

SAGINAW COUNTY, MI – Sheriff William Federspiel doesn’t like the picture being painted by “Orange is the New Black” on TV, so he’s swapping orange jail jumpsuits for black and white stripes.

“It doesn’t have a connotation of being cool nor should it be,” he says.

The decision is drawing mixed reactions.
