Hello Coppy!

Bad cops, bad cops, what are we gonna do with you…..

Police chiefs in Bangkok, Thailand have come up with a harmless, yet extremly embarrassing punishment for officers who “break the rules”.

Officers who are late, park in the wrong place or commit other minor transgressions will have to wear a large armband that is bright pink and has a Hello Kitty motif with two hearts embroidered on it.

“This is to help build discipline. We should not let small offences go unnoticed,” Police Colonel Pongpat Chayapan told Reuters news agency.

“Guilty officers will be made to wear the armbands in the office for a few days, with instructions not to disclose their offences. Let people guess what they have done,” he said.

The Hello Kitty brand is mainly marketed toward the pre-adolescent female market and the ploy by the Bangkok police department will no doubt smash any notions of masculinity in a force comprised mostly of male police officers.  

Yep, doesn’t get much girlier and pink than Hello Kitty, who, according to her website, has a twin sister called Mimmy and loves eating “yummy cookies” and making new friends.
