It’s A Shame, Shame, Shame

Bangkok officials have found a new way to reprimand rule-breaking policemen: SHAME.

Bad boys, bad boys are now required to wear Hello Kitty armbands around the office as punishment for wrongdoing.

Associated Press reports:

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.

The striking armband features Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts.

“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,” said Pongpat, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok.
