Punish cops with Hello Kitty

The NY Times reports on a plan to keep Thai cops in line: make them wear a pink Hello Kitty armband for failing to maintain department standards.

Ten of the armbands have been prepared, but so far none have actually been issued, according to an officer who declined to give his name while discussing this sensitive topic.

“After this policy came out, the police are scared,” the officer said. “It will be very embarrassing to walk around with Hello Kitty on your arm.”

The article goes on to say that “Pink armbands for misdemeanors are a start. Stronger measures could be next for corruption and extrajudicial killings.” And what might the punishment be for a cop who appoints himself public executioner? Two armbands? Ah, the program is brand new . . . we will have to wait and see.
