Officials in Bangkok have come up with a creative way to keep their police force in line. Thai police officers who break rules will now be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring the “Hello Kitty” logo as a mark of shame.
Police officers caught littering, parking in prohibited areas, or arriving late to work will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day. Police Col. Pongpat Chayaphan said, “Simple warnings no longer work. This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor.” (myway.com)
