    Isn't it obvious? They want them to be easy to see in case they try to escape.

    Because...... this IS America. Not Europe or Australia. You don't compare the greatest country in the world to second-raters.

    They used to wear black and white stripes. Then Obama was born in Kenya to a communist named Frank Davis and they had to change it due to the chameleon effect.

    Because people don't tend to wear them on the outside. Which makes an escaped con kinda stick out a bit.
