Pakistan, Karachi -Pak police officers who break rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring “hello kitty,” the Pakistani icon of cute, as a mark of shame, a senior officer said,Police officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late — among other misdemeanors — will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day. The officers will wear the armband in public. The striking armband features Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts. “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,”.

“(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It’s not something Pak police officers want covering their biceps,”.

We want to make sure that we do not condone small offenses, adding that getting tough on petty misdemeanors would lead to fewer cases of more serious offenses including abuse of power and mistreatment of the public by police officers.

    Too funny!
    Reminds me of how the 7/11 company got rid of teenage loiterers by playing classical music loudly around their stores.
