Sloppy Thailand Policemen to Wear "Hello Kitty" Armbands
Errant Thai police officers will now be seen with bright pink "Hello Kitty" armbands illustrated with Japanese cute cat cartoon character with hearts. The armbands are meant to discipline Crime Suppression Division officers caught in petty offenses such as parking in prohibited areas, dropping litter, getting into fights, or reporting late for work. Guilty officers would have to wear the armbands in office for a few days. The idea is taken from the zero tolerance anti-crime initiatives used in New York in the 1980s and 1990s. The "broken windows" policing theory says that getting tough on small offenses leads to a drop in serious crimes.
