Hello Kitty to Discipline Naughty Police

According to a report, Thai policemen deemed guilty of minor infractions are to wear hot pink Hello Kitty armbands as punishment. The cute kitties of Japan will adorn the arms of officers who act aggressively toward the public or leave their cars idling for long periods of time. The police colonel in charge said he chose the symbol for its pinkness and visibility. No word on whether they'll have to patrol in new police cruisers as well. [via The Daily Telegraph]
