Straight Jacket? Bullet proof vest? What is Rufus O. Victor wearing in his mug shot?

Mug shot therefore in public domain, blog post by John Hoff

Once again picking up information scraps ignored by the mass media (like the exclusive information first broken here on Johnny Northside Dot Com that an Illinois vehicle was involved in the fatal crash which killed three people, resulting in charges against the (alleged) driver, Rufus O. Victor) here's another brain teaser for loyal readers:

WHAT IS RUFUS WEARING IN HIS MUG SHOT?

Keep in mind Rufus fled the scene of the accident (allegedly) wearing a "red or burgundy colored shirt or jacket." (Check out the criminal complaint linked by KSTP, click here) When apprehended by police, Rufus was described as wearing...


...red pants and a red hooded jacket. The long hair--so long it was unclear whether Rufus was male or female--was consistent in both descriptions.

OK, so we know Rufus was wearing a red jacket. But what's that thing he's wearing in the mug shot?

It looks to me like a bullet proof vest or a straight jacket.

This is a type a suicide garment that they put on inmates that have threatened to harm themselves. A typical jumpsuit can be used to hang themselves. This cannot.

I believe it's the smock they put people in at the jail who are suicide risks. It's made of a fabric that can't easily be torn or unraveled and only has velcro to keep it closed. That's my best guess.

Such a sad situation :( His mother is one of our neighbors. She is devastated. I feel so bad for the victim's families. Such a senseless thing!

The never ending cycle of the bad taking out the good and then being defended by relatives who say he is such a good person. You people are pathetic and sickening the way you stand up for the devils disciples and drink from the cup of denial and ignorance. May all of you who defend this guy die miserable deaths.

I bet it's some kind of straight jacket like you said, because the cops had told him 2 people died and the crim complaint says he got extremely agitated. I bet they had to restrain him.

Sad. Sad. Sad. So now how do we use this sad situation for all younger people to learn from? "Don't be a life long thug, don't steal cars, don't flee the police, don't drive impaired, don't grow long dreads or you'll be called a female"

One racist comment rejected. Racists should familiarize themselves with proper spelling and the correct use of apostrophes.

I think if Mark Dayton had been elected much earlier he would have enacted programs that could have prevented this.
