What is it with all the Clowns? I know it must be great for the new Stephen King IT movie being made but it seems that world has gone mad dressing up as clowns and scaring people. What started in the US has now caught on in the UK and there have been arrests made by the police, trying to put an end to these “Killer Clown Pranks”.
Northumbria Police have even put more police officers on duty as one of the detainees, a teenage boy, even had a “bladed article” on his person.
“Warning to those responsible for clown pranks in Newcastle. This is an update in relation to a series of clown pranks that have happened in the Newcastle area throughout the day. Tonight, officers have arrested a teenage boy in Blakelaw in possession of a bladed article in connection with one of such clown incidents. This arrest should act as a clear warning to others who are actively seeking to cause distress and potentially harm others. This behaviour will not be tolerated by Northumbria Police and extra officers will be on hand to offer reassurance and catch those responsible for any criminal offences which have taken place.”
Now I like a good scare prank more than most but when people are carrying weapons around while doing it, well its only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. Come on you guys, the authorities have enough to do without running round after you dumb asses dressed as clowns. If only all criminals dressed as clowns…
