Do they get to keep the armbands

To take home to their daughters? Given the prices charged for "branded" items surely a cop will happily dropgum where the boss can see if it will mean they get to take a rand name item home to their kid...

According to a report on a Japanese game show a few days ago, it seems the armbands were cheap knockoff Kitties.

A Thai police spokesman said "there are only 10 armbands and they are for internal use, so we aren't subject to copyright regulations".

A Sanrio spokesperson said "we are currently investigating the truth of the reports and have no comment at this time on any action we may be taking".

The scheme was quietly stopped after only two days.

Response to Thai Police Strapped with Hello Kitty Armbands

"He'll also curb more serious problems, such as police brutality and abuse of power..."

..which clearly starts at the top in the Thai police force.

@Why are all the related stories about Paris Hilton?

Click on any of the related stories links - they're all related to this one too.

ISTR an article a few weeks ago which had _no_ related stories, and the error message below gave something away about the underlying code ... can't remember what now. If someone could find something similar and decipher that we may get there.

More important than where's the IT angle (which the link to AP fits, as this looks like it was lifted by a bot), is "where's the iPhone angle", shurely.

Why's it related to Paris Hilton?

"but I don't see any reference to Paris Hilton in the article."

No, but then again it's a fairly pointless waste of our time... Just like Paris Hilton.

Why Paris

Because they lifted the story from Fox's Red Eye, who discuss Paris on a daily basis

Pussy Armbands?

They should make them wear strap-ons and walk around beating them with their trunchons, which would be appropriate for the Bang-Kok police force. Ho ho.

Serious breaches of conduct should see the strap-on wearing coppers pimped-out at the local ladyboy meat farm. That'll teach 'em good and proper.
