    Awe, they don't like pink. Poor babies. How about not getting arrested in the first place, so that you are free to wear whatever you want? The quote from the sherrif about sums it up.

    Prisoners in pink: Deterrent or scarlet mark of danger?

    Con raises hue, cry over punishing color

    By Ron Barnett
    USA TODAY

    Punishing prisoners for sexual misconduct by making them wear pink places them in peril, a South Carolina inmate says in a lawsuit against the state's penal system.

    The suit is the latest development in a nationwide effort by prison and jail officials to tap the power of pink to subdue criminals.

    In the South Carolina case, Sherone Nealous claims that forcing inmates to wear pink is discriminatory and makes them more likely to be assaulted by other inmates. Nealous is serving time at the Allendale Correctional Institution for assault and battery with intent to kill, aggravated assault and assault and battery on a police officer.

    ...................

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio...

    "Why would I give them a color they like?" he said. "They're in jail."

    How DARE you questions this man's civil right not to have to wear pink. What has he done to deserve being imprisoned and treated so? You're just a mouthpiece for Fox News and the Republican Party! HATEMONGERER! HATEMONGERER!

    There is a reality to this and one of the issues is that it may make the job of a CO more difficult. If everyone is in the same unit and wearing pink it might be ok. But if they are in open population, they become marked men and prone to more violence. The more violence the more probability staff will get hurt, and the more difficult their job might become. This is a reality, don't care all that much about the rights of prisoners, but more about the guys and girls guarding them.
