You have shamed your family, Kick/Punch

Now this is truly unbelievable. In Bangkok, Thailand (yes there is a place named Bangkok and no that isn't the only amazing thing about this story) there has been trouble with corrupt and bad cops. So rather then firing or arresting these shady or stupid men of the law they came up with something much more damaging. They are going to make them wear pink "Hello Kitty" armbands over their uniforms. Pongpat, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division said:

"Simple warnings no longer work. This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor," and "(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It's not something macho police officers want covering their biceps,"

That's right America (and other countries, I think of other ones names right now but) rather then firing these police officers they are making them wear pink. And I know what else your thinking, pink is sooooo last year. I KNOW!!!
I am attaching the rest of the article just in case you don't believe me. http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/08/06/thai.hello.kitty.ap/index.html
