Georgia Jail Goes All Pink From Walls To Jumpsuits
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Inmates in a Georgia jail won't likely be tickled pink with its new makeover. And that's just the idea. Officials at the Ben Hill County Jail are painting every wall and bunk Pepto-Bismol pink. Also: the towels, sheets, shoes, handcuffs. Officials say the shocking pink jumpsuits will make escapees easier to catch. But mostly they're hoping inmates will hate the new d�cor so much they'll go straight rather than come back.
