I came across a very distressing sight the other day while I was dropping my daughter off at class. She attends an elementary school that goes up to the 8th grade. In the hallway, I saw a young boy about 12 years old wearing an ORANGE jail jumpsuit that had the name "jail property" on the front breast pocket. He was showing it off to some of the young girls in the hallway like he was HOT STUFF! I just stood there in disbelief, not only because her school required uniforms be worn, but of the obvious glorification of being incarcerated. (The school recently merged with another local neighborhood school due to "cost effectiveness" and the crumbling conditions of the other school.) But what bothered me the most is when I asked someone about his attire, I was told that was the new "style". That supposedly there is a company that is selling this jumpsuit and it also is being worn by rappers in videos. Since when it is fashionable to go to jail or DRESS the part? Yes, I know of shows like "OZ" and "The Wire", but this is going too far! How can we teach our youth that jail isn't a "FAD"? That there are REAL life long consequences to their actions? I have long since stopped watching BET, so I was unfamiliar with this new disturbing "trend". What do you all think?
