Thailand’s Royal Po-pos have GOT to find something else better to do with their time than this!
A pink ”Hello Kitty” armband wrapped around a khaki-clad arm is shouting for attention at the police Crime Suppression Division. It is a new disciplinary measure introduced especially for police investigators who refuse to play by the rules.
Oh, and right above it on the webpage, the headline reads like this:
193 killed, 1,056 wounded in 5 months in troubled South
I mean, seriously. What the fuck!?!?
While the South is going to hell in a radical Muslim hand basket, the Royal Police is fucking around with slapping Hello Kitty armbands on “undisciplined” cops?
Amazing Thailand, indeed.
ETA: Here is a clip of the front page of this edition. I wish I have a better image, but pretty much that whole fatality stats from the South is not even on the front page. Yet, the pink armband takes most of the space.
This shows Thai law enforcement has too much time at hands to poke around, tasting cold water to see how screw up they can be.
