BANGKOK, Thailand - Thai police officers who break rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring "," the Japanese icon of cute, as a mark of shame, a senior officer said Monday.
Police officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late — among other misdemeanors — will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day, said Police Col. Pongpat Chayaphan. The officers won't wear the armband in public. [Wusses!]
The striking armband features Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts.
