Lever the kids to "pretend" jail, not a make a blatant one with the actual word and locks on it. That's just tacky creepy and weird.
Plus the racial issues in the history of Bed-Stuy could also possibly a part of it. And I do find it interesting that there aren't any other jail playgrounds in the area either.
I doubt there are many across the country.
Yeah, upon reading the headline, I thought it was no big deal, but putting the actual word JAIL! on the playground was kind of stupid.

Oh come on! All kids play cops and robbers. We didn't have the cool jail playgrounds when I was a kid, but we made jails.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.!

I do not believe any message was being sent here. It was just a playground for children.

Just because their playground has a pretend "jail" does not mean that is where they will end up.

Didn't we all play cops and robbers?

The playground itself did not look too bad but for them to write the word "Jail" on the one of the entrance sides took it a bit too far.

Would this be an issue no matter where this playground is located?

Or is it just because it is in a Bed Sty Housing project?

Well at least it did not say "Brothel" .

At that point I think it would be an issue.
