No happy new year for mannequin fetishist

Ronald A. Dotson, of Detroit, faces a life sentence for smashing the front window of a cleaning supply company and stealing a female mannequin dressed in a French maid uniform. Oooh la la.

Mr. Dotson has at least 6 convictions for similar mannequin-related burglaries. He's being charged as an habitual offender.

I wonder where mannequin fetishists fall in the prison pecking order? More respect than child sex offenders and snitches, sure, but probably less than armed robbers.

I wonder if he likes taking theirs arms off?

Wait, there's something wrong with that?

I saw that one and almost posted about it. Since it's his umpteenth offense-- apparently he got out from his last one pretty recently-- he's looking at serious time now. Maybe someone could be kind enough to explain that it's perfectly legal to simply PURCHASE a couple of mannequins and then he can dress them up any way he wants. I'm guessing, though, that the theft is part of the thrill.

Well, that's what he told some official, a prison shrink or parole agent, according to one story I saw--that he planned on buying a mannequin so that he wouldn't keep stealing them. The problem, obviously, is that part of his thrill is the window-breaking and stealing part. That is a complicated kink.

Beth, I don't even want to think about that.

Hmmm, bashing in the front window to steal. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, are we?
