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.

Corrupt police dogs go crazy for human females.

In Thailand two ace sniffer dogs who were once street mutts ran riot at an airport and have been fired. The dogs often urinated on peoples luggage and even sexually harassed female passengers.

The devilish pair, Mok and Lai, were pulled off the streets under a program initiated by King Bhumibol Adulyadej to turn strays into police dogs.

The naughty dogs who worked at northern Thailand’s Chiang Rai airport, near the border with Laos and Myanmar,  were guns at sniffing out drugs, however so many passengers complained about their outrageous attitude that authorites had no choice but to have the dogs fired.

“He liked to pee on luggage while searching for drugs inside,” Mok’s former handler, Police Lieutenant Colonel Jakapop Kamhon, said. “He also liked to hold on to women’s legs.”

“Both were just as good as foreign dogs trained for use in drug missions,” he added. “But they were stray dogs, so their manners were worse than those of foreign breeds.”

Apparenlty Mok and Lai now work on a farm, herding chickens and pigs.
