Police in Puerto Rico have decided to favour the carrot over the stick on Three Kings' day, handing out gifts instead of speeding tickets, in Ponce, Saturday. The officers were helped the 'Three Kings' from the Maraguez cathedral.
«It's beautiful. We've been able to deliver the message we wanted, that our punitive side is not our only side,» says Lieutenant Colonel Roberto Rivera Miranda. «We... Еще just saw a mum crying with her three children, and maybe she broke the law, but today's not the day for that.»
While this is the first year police have decided to carry out this operation, they wish to carry it on. Police officers say the parents seem even happier than the children — perhaps due to the fact that they've avoided a fine.
