    They stand guard at his home 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    At first, and even second glance, you don’t know if they’re real or not.

    A man on Detroit’s west side is so serious about home security, he’s using CPR dummies to help him...

    Who's the dummy now? The news article may not have given out details, but criminals are smart. They'll figure it out.

    The police in the town I grew up in used a similar tactic years ago--they parked a squad car, with a dummy in the driver's seat, at a particularly bad intersection (they at times had a real cop in the driver's seat).

    Worked great at getting folks to obey the traffic signals/not speed, until someone hit the unoccupied cop car. When the story hit the papers, the jig was up.
