Fashion before justice

The Register reports that a teenage girl in England apparently convinced a judge that an ankle-tag would look odd with her choice of clothing, and she therefore was able to easily circumvent the curfew conditions of her bail.

The BBC report mentions that the girl said she did not answer the door during her curfew because “she was asleep at the time”, which presents an interesting value map for security:
