A Madison modus operandi.

I hesitate to reveal an approach to victimizing women in Madison....
A Saudi Arabian man who police say has returned to his country was charged with attempted sexual assault Tuesday after he allegedly talked his way in to a neighbor's apartment in Madison last month.

The July 4 incident was one of three within five days in July in which Riyad M. Alsulaiman, 24, allegedly approached women who had cats and asked to pet them in order to get into their apartments, all in the 1600 block of Fordem Avenue.
Let's retune those stranger-danger sensors. Elsewhere in the annals of getting creeped out in Madison, we've got our legislator, Brett Hulsey subjected to a disorderly conduct charge, because his horseplay with and photography of some kids at the beach creeped out the adults who were watching from a distance.

So he asked to pet their pussy.

I had to take the easy one. Splitting headache today.

I seriously hope my daughter wouldn't be taken in by such a line.

"Before leaving he gave the woman his phone number, which police used later to find him."

Islamic romance.

I'm always glad that criminals are mighty stupid; it helps deal with them.

Didn't Johnny Carson do that years ago?

I guess a strange guy wanting to come into a woman's apartment to pet her pussy would be one.

"May I come in and pet your cat?"

That works?!

He asked to pet their pussy, and they let him in?

What does it take to be self-aware in Madison, if you are a woman?

I would let him pet my rare clumber.

He is very cute.

Yeah, that's exactly my thought. How the !@$# is it that that worked??

It would be a lot easier to credit Halsey if he would describe the event exactly as it happened, shrug his shoulders, and mutter "WTF?"

When the accusations are silly on their face, a complicated explanation that doesn't survive critical examination winds up being the most damning piece of evidence against him.

I think white women, especially in a city like Madison, worry about appearing racist. Pervs of color take advantage of that.

I'm assuming the women were white, of course, but it's a pretty good assumption given the circumstances.

Stupid gets you killed.

Those broads were lucky.

If we did our jobs right we will have no worries.

Maybe he was using the Hungarian Phrasebook.

"Bailiff: Yes M'Lud. On the 28th day of May, you published this phrase book?

Publisher: I did.

Bailiff: I quote an example. The Hungarian phrase meaning "Can you direct me to the station?" is translated by the English phrase, "Please fondle my bum."

We've already got "Don't talk to the stranger with the cat" down for our kids, thanks.

What we didn't expect was that we'd have to add "Don't swim with state legislators" and "Don't get in a car with the Attorney General after she's had a few".

Pogo,

Ah, a classic, one of those skits you can't help but memorize.

"My hovercraft is full of eels."

"If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me? I am no longer infected."

"Drop your panties, Sir William, I cannot wait till lunchtime!"

Kirk Parker said...

Freeman,

"That works?! "

Well, now we all know not to try it with *you*. :-)

He left the country. Is there anything preventing him from coming back?
