I Give You the Most Pathetic Man Ever

I think the competition for the title of the dumbest and most pathetic man in the world is over. Meet William McDaniel of Butte, Montana, who went to a strip club, paid for a bunch of lapdances, then called 911 when the stripper refused to have sex with him.

William McDaniel found himself in jail when he called police to complain that he didn’t get sex after paying for a private dance at a strip club.

Butte-Silver Bow law enforcement said McDaniel, 53 years old, called police at around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday to report that he paid a dancer at Sage Brush Sam’s in Rocker $350 for a private dance and did not get sex.

Since it’s illegal to offer money for sexual favors, police arrested McDaniel on a misdemeanor charge of soliciting prostitution.

I firmly believe that prostitution should be legal. There should be no such “crime” as solicitation. But it is against the law and to call the police to complain that you didn’t get what you wanted when you did so is really, really dumb. Not to mention how absurd it is to assume that a woman is going to have sex with you just because you paid her to strip for you. It’s her body, she gets to decide what she’s going to do with it.

    At least this looser didn’t (apparently) tried to force the his patheticness: That would be rape or attempted rape.

    At least he didn’t shoot anyone. Maybe he should try that as his defense.

  • Tracy Walker

    Not to mention horrible misuse of the 911 system. Even if the man thought he was entitled to sex for money given, and even if he thought he’d been cheated, failure to receive goods when purchased does not an emergency make.

    And as long as the stripper didn’t get arrested too, everything worked out just fine.

    Had he also bought her lobster he’d have asked for a SWAT team.

    For most pathetic, I think that dipshit “War Machine” has this guy beat. McDaniel will have to double-down with a whiny MRA screed to even approach his category.

    It’s enough to make you ashamed of being male.

    Gee, now I’m disappointed. Reading the headline, I thought this piece was going to be about Dinesh D’Souza.

    He will be a GOP / Tea Party candidate when he gets out, having displayed all the requisite traits required to be ‘Republican’ …how could they refuse. head and shoulders above the cretin that likes wanking in cars!

  • jambonpomplemouse

    Well, if he lived in Texas he could have legally shot her in the back for not having the sex he felt she owed him: http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Jury-acquits-escort-shooter-4581027.php

    One could also make the case that this was coercion on the part of Mr. McDaniel, in the sense that he most likely used the threat of calling 911 to force the dancer to engage in unwilling, non-consenual sex. In fact this could be construed as an attempted rape.

    To be fair, it was a sex emergency.

    Re: Tracy Walker @ #3…

    That kind of depends on how the local police numbers work. Where I live, in a fit of stupidity, the cops dropped their non-emergency number altogether. If you want to report *anything*, no matter how trivial, your only choice is to call 911. (And, of course, you then get told the cops are busy and they *may* get around to dealing with what you called them about…or maybe not, even if it has serious potential effects that haven’t happened yet.)

    jambonpomplemouse @ 11:

    That is the most horrible miscarriage of justice I have ever seen (and I’ve been a lawyer for 36 years)!

    A Bexar County jury … acquitted Ezekiel Gilbert of murder in the death of a 23-year-old Craigslist escort.

    Gilbert’s defense team conceded the shooting did occur but said the intent wasn’t to kill. Gilbert’s actions were justified, they argued, because he was trying to retrieve stolen property: the $150 he paid Frago. It became theft when she refused to have sex with him or give the money back, they said.

    Gilbert testified earlier Tuesday that he had found Frago’s escort ad on Craigslist and believed sex was included in her $150 fee. But instead, Frago walked around his apartment and after about 20 minutes left, saying she had to give the money to her driver, he said.

    And so, instead of being poorer and wiser, on Christmas Eve 2009, he shot her in the neck and paralyzed her, causing her death 7 months later.

    I’d like to meet that jury … so I could spit in their faces.

    the stripper refused

    Y’know if it’s a legitimate refusal, a man’s body’s got a way of shutting it down?

    Oh, come on. Everyone knows how easy it is to confuse Montana with Nevada, and the words “brothel” & “strip club” and “prostitute” & “stripper”.

    Ed, I give you the following from the UK last year: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-birmingham-22887138

    Prostitution is legal in all fifty states, as long as you spell it m-a-r-r-i-a-g-e.

  • Ichthyic

    I firmly believe that prostitution should be legal

    It is here in New Zealand; has been for over 10 years now I think.

    first results of the long term studies on the effects of that are just coming in now.

    so far, it looks like it has had little impact on the rates of people going into prostitution as a business venture, but the health and safety issues are DRASTICALLY improved.

    so, all in all a net benefit to the world at large, and recommended by the vast majority of law enforcement and health agencies here still (that it remain legal).

    No, legalizing prostitution is not going to end it, or satisfy the prudes (as if one ever could), but it DOES make life better for a whole lot of people. pretty good result if you ask me.

  • Ichthyic

    the bits and pieces I see now, are pretty much in line with the results they saw after about 5 years of legalization, that they published a while back:

    To be fair, much of Mr. McDaniel’s blood had migrated south from his brain.

  • http://thebronzeblog.wordpress.com/ Bronze Dog

    I apparently got raised right. There’s this slippery slope of entitlement I was always appalled by, where an asshole claims a woman did some kind of sex-associated behavior, therefore he gets to manufacture false consent and have sex with her. It’s like children playing rules lawyer about “Jinx” and “Double-Dog Dares” as if non-compliance were a criminal offense. And “no” means “yes” because it’s conveniently Opposite Day.

    Honestly, this guy doesn’t even make the top 10.
