A friend of mine brought this 2007 article on BBC to my attention, about Thai police in Bangkok using Hello Kitty to punish their officers who break the rules.
Basically, the punishment is to wear this bright and eye-catching pink Hello Kitty armband, complete with hearts!
Simple offences like being late, parking in the wrong place and other minor transgressions will result in officers having to wear the Hello Kitty armband for several days, as a way to shame them.
They are also not to disclose the offences that they have committed, to keep the others guessing.
Further offences would then be dealt with a more traditional disciplinary panel.
