Bad cops to wear little girl clothes

In Thailand, it has been announced that delinquent police officers will be made to wear Hello Kitty armbands as a form of punishment. It is thought that not only will they be easily identified because of the bright pink color, but also, the feminine, childlike icon would shame them into shape. Fascinating use of dress as behavior modifier–but I’d be curious to see the results a year from now if those officers actually changed their ways, or, if in some twist the cute kitty got flipped around to become a status symbol of aggression and rebellion. That would be hilarious.
