Why? Well it seems their religion also bars them from wearing or displaying bright colours and, not surpisingly, the aforementioned safety triangle is a particulary bright shade of orange.

They were all jailed for their heinous crime but according to The Smoking Gun, the powers-that-be were kind enough to find them some dark coloured jumpsuits instead of the standard-issue coveralls.
