Spanish Cops Issue Fine Over "All Cats Are Beautiful” Bag

A Spanish woman was fined by police in Spain for walking through the streets of Madrid carrying a bag that declared “All Cats Are Beautiful.” While the bag may not be to everyone’s taste, Belén Lobeto, a graphic designer living in Madrid, was surprised to discover that her handbag choice proved so offensive. Despite the fact that the bag carried an image of a cat and the phrase "All Cats Are Beautiful" beneath the letters ACAB, the police insisted it was an acronym for the punk phrase "All Cops Are Bastards.” She was fined under the controversial Citizens Security Law — or "Gag Law" as it's been dubbed by its critics — for disrespecting the police. The charges were dropped three days later.
