Dunno if anyone caught this (or I'm reading old news) -

Police chiefs in the Thai capital, Bangkok, have come up with a new way of punishing officers who break the rules - an eye-catching Hello Kitty armband.

The armband is large, bright pink and has a Hello Kitty motif with two hearts embroidered on it.

From today, officers who are late, park in the wrong place or commit other minor transgressions will have to wear it for several days.

The armband is designed to shame the wearer, police officials said.

"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.

Further offences would be dealt with using a more traditional disciplinary panel, he said.

but all the same, it's damn funny... Bad kitty... baaaaadddddd..... ^.^

Yar i saw this too... apparently they figured shame is a more powerful deterrent than coporal punishment.

funny how different things shame different people...

dR: yupz... believe it! Lolz

nanie: I guess the conventional punishment is no longer in trend. Yup, it's really interesting to observe how different things shame different kind of people. Who in the world came out with the Hello Kitty concept?
