Simply fix it so that it is not an offence to break a goalie hurl across a clown's forehead if he is acting the........clown.

'Killer clown' warning as craze hits Northern Ireland - BBC News

It is clear that Killer Clowns are wasting police time and a distraction. Question is what should we do if the craze sweeps south of the border? Are any of us safe from clowns in budget week?
I couldn't really understand what all the fuss was about, but your photo explains it very clearly.

That clown is wearing socks with sandals :shock2:

Crazy: The Collective Unconscious Is Creating Creepy Clowns
People just want to be scared about something...

First, let’s get one thing out of the way: There are no clowns skulking around America’s neighborhoods, looking for children to abduct.

Since the first reports of creepy, potentially murderous clowns began surfacing across South Carolina in August, there have been supposed sightings in at least 10 states, as well as parts of Canada. Social media has been recast in its timeless role as the Perennially Loud and Wrong Town Crier, helping spread misinformation and “clown threats” across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Inside HigherEd reports that clowns have appeared at "the universities of Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, Miami, Missouri at Columbia and Texas at Austin,” as well as “Bloomsburg, Butler, Sacred Heart, Texas A&M, Syracuse Universities [and] Mississippi and York Colleges.” Yesterday morning, White House press secretary Josh Earnest actually had to answer a reporter’s question about how the administration is addressing the clown epidemic.

“I don’t know that the president has been briefed on this particular situation,” Earnest answered, presumably with a straight face, and even acknowledged it’s “something that I've read about in some of the news coverage.” He went on to suggest that the reporter check in with “the FBI and DHS and see what they have to say,” because talking to reporters about imaginary clowns is definitely a good use of federal agents’ time, I’m sure.

Most of the reports have been revealed as pranks, obviously. The New York Times noted late last week that at least 12 people had been arrested for “clown hoaxes,” and there have been multiple arrests since then. Other cases have turned out to be a combination of real clowns and irrational panic, as when a 12-year-old Virginia boy with autism dressed up early for Halloween, only to become the subject of a viral social media post and a local news segment. Somehow, police dispatched to all the remaining sightings have found no red noses left behind at the scene and not a single oversized floppy shoe for the crime lab to study. Benjamin Radford, whose books on urban legends and the paranormal include the recent Bad Clown, explains how the lack of forensic evidence is less about stealthy criminal clowns than overactive imaginations. ...

Sinister, funny or just plain creepy? Bizarre clown craze that has terrified the US reaches the UK with spate of spooky sightings including one wearing a poncho covered in BLOOD
The bloody figure was in a hockey mask on a Greater Manchester street

I see this as a reflection on society's fear of the growing number of masked people in our community and the fear that they may be planning random acts of violence towards us.

What is it like to walk about with your identity - your very personality - concealed?
What is it like to be feared by everyone who sees you?
I suspect it is empowering, especially for those who otherwise feel exposed and inadequate. The age and social standing of the clowns would be an interesting to see.

It's only a waste of police resources if you consider any criminal to be wasting police resources. These @ssholes are assaulting and harassing people making them feel unsafe.

Were you ever a contortionist? The bending and twisting you can go through to introduce a muzzie angle is really impressive. Fair play to ya.

Some people dressed as clowns - kids I assume - smashed the neighbor's car window yesterday and ran off.

2016 is a weird year.

Dangerous clowns wearing silly clothes have been spotted everywhere.
