Finally, some real justice for panty thieves...

As reported by the associated press in the, a 25 year old Wisconsin man was sentenced to one year of jail and ten years of probation for his second conviction for stealing panties. While the latest charge involves the theft of three pairs of 'distinctive' looking panties, overall police say they can link him to 854 thefts. His sentence carries a $2,500 fine (that’s a lot of panties) and, more importantly, he will now have to register as a sex offender. Excuse me? This man may be a lot of things, an idiot, habitual B&E felon, but sex offender? He hasn't proven to be a menace to women, just to their clothing, and while I don't pretend to be an expert on the subject, but is there truly a correlation between habitual panty theft and rape/sexual abuse of women? Are we saying midnight panty raids at band camp are no longer mischievous acts but sexual assault? What is the charge for men who like wearing women's underwear (they feel natural, not that I would know)? Conversely, is this another case of different levels of justice for men and women? Next time your girlfriend steals your boxers on a lazy Sunday afternoon does she run the risk of incarceration?
