"What brings you to this paradise?"
Manson was a Detroit Police Officer serving at the Metro West Precinct.
Manson welcomed Alex Murphy to the precinct upon his arrival. He also briefly discussed a strike with Kaplan before Sergeant Warren Reed cut the conversation short when he entered with Cecil to removed murdered Officer Frank Frederickson's belongings.
He later spoke in favor of a strike before cyborg police officer RoboCop brought in Clarence Boddicker to be booked.
Manson later refused to follow orders to destroy RoboCop, given to Lieutenant Hedgecock by Dick Jones and walked off in disgust, effectively going on strike.
