No doubt there's a lot of copycats doing it to just stir # up.
I have mo dount that a portion of these clown sightings are orchestrated by some alphabet-soup agency. Fear of clowns (
) is common enough to affect the general population. Either a psy-op or a planned
What seems odd, is, few, if any, of these clowns have been captured, arrested, etc. Let me explain.
I live in a midwest town that would remind you of the sitcoms of the 50's & 60's; Courthouse square, clean streets, great city services, low
(relatively) crime, 10k population (in winter), etc. In the past month, the neighborhood watch FB page has reported 5-7 clown sightings per week.
Discount half as hoax, and that leaves a legitimate 3-4 per week. Now, our police dept. is fantastic about being on top of things. Every time a clown
is sighted, someone has called them. Yet, in 6-8 weeks, say 25 legit sightings, not one clown has been reported as arrested, questioned, stopped,
And I know for a fact some of these are legit sightings--I have a part-time job that causes me to be all over town in the afternoon/evening, and in
the past 3 weeks, I have seen 3 clowns. Hell, one user of the FB page posted a picture of a clown walking down a street literally a block from the
police dept., in broad daylight, accompanied by a gorilla. one would think they would've been all over that one.
But, I suspect some are stopped or checked out. No arrest/interdiction reports in the local paper, so what does that say? To me, the clowns, the
''legit'' ones, not copycats, have some sort of 'get out of jail free' card; Federal agent I.D., or, more likely,I've been told by someone who would
likely know, there is a rare, little used, federal employee ID card that basically states the the holder walks away from anything, no questions
Because, you know, small town cops like ours here are good at checking out anything. The fact that these clowns continue says that they have no fear
of law enforcement, and some kind of protection.
Mothers can likely rest easy-the clowns aren't child molesters come to take your kids. BUT the populace in general should be scared, or at least wary.
