Jail painted pink with teddy bear accents to curb violence

AP reports: “Prisoners returning to a southwest Missouri county jail damaged in a failed breakout will find a new color scheme — pink with blue teddy bear accents. The Dallas County Detention Center is being repainted a soft shade of pink in an effort to better manage sometimes volatile detainees… ‘Basically, if [prisoners] are going to act like children and commit a childish act, then we’ll make a childish atmosphere. And its a calming thing; Teddy bears are soothing. So we made it like a day care, and that’s kind of like what it is, a day care for adults who can’t control their behavior in public.'”

Hilarious my friend.
