The choice is yours

Apparently, some police officers in the Philippines have been shirking their duties by taking days off without permission. Normally this would be grounds for outright dismissal, or at least suspension. But since it's the Easter season, their superintendent is offering the wayward cops "a second chance to show they are really sorry." How? Well, each may volunteer to bear a heavy wooden cross through the streets today, as Jesus did en route to Golgotha. Or, if they've played hooky 100 or more times, they must submit to being raised on a cross, although they may have their hands and feet tied rather than nailed as the most devout religious pilgrims do in annual reenactments of the crucifixion.
