    I know this sounds stupid but idiots in So. Jersey have been sighted all over in these creepy clown masks and costumes. Apparently a lot of folks are upset over this so the police are starting to crack down .

    Hit here last night in a rural suburb, all hunters in town locked and loaded when they realized there was no closed season nor bag limit.

    There was at least one in my area. A little south of Boston in Quincy, a clown was spotted on the side of the road next to a park, attempting to get cars to pull over.

    The whole thing is creepy. I don't mind clowns, but the fact that they're everywhere now is not comforting.

    There was a report of a student at Texas State (college between Austin and San Antonio) being attacked by someone dressed as a clown, it made the news this morning. Pretty stupid to do anything to frighten people here in Texas where a LOT of people are carrying. I suspect the next craze will be reports of dead clowns.

    Clowns are creepy as f**k so they need to stay away from me.

    Oh goodness - that is where I graduated from - only then it was called Southwest Texas State Univ. Hopefully someone will
    nail that creep. Around my area - everyone carries - he would be toast. Heck we have people shoot at each other over parking spaces
    here - can't imagine what they would do if those clown creeps started hanging out here. Ick - I never could stand clowns.

    A school district here had to ask for increased police patrols because of threats of clowns coming to schools intending violence. There were reports in another school district if sightings of clowns, some carrying weapons. It's bad enough that these jerks are going around but when they intentionally terrorize children, it's gone too far.

    word is a suburban teenage girl posted a threat targeted at another suburban community's school, and a general threat elsewhere. i've read a claim that somebody was chased to their vehicle at a park some evening, and the clown was carrying a knife. no word that the claim is legit.

    it's not against the law to be in public places dressed as a creepy clown, and i think it's hype more than reality, but there's no shortage of weird people, so it's not surprising that threats of violence and claims of encounters are popping up everywhere.

    This thread reminded me of an old friend that hated to walk by the old Boardwalk casino because it freaked her out.
    I miss that place. Had some fun times there.

    this creepy clown thing is just the latest fad, but i hope it doesn't explode like pokemongo did.

    A middle school was evacuated last week when a report of a clown in a wooded area near the school was reported. Also there was a bank robbery where two people, one wearing a clown mask, made of with a bunch of cash. It was the bank my company uses daily too.
    I was waiting on a report of the getaway car having 30+ other clowns in it!

    Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns. Yes, there is a word for it. I think this is much ado over nothing. So what if someone wants to make an ass of themselves, dress up as a clown and cause others to knot up their knickers.

    In the late 60's, there was a kids TV show in Philly called Lorenzo the Clown, he would apply his makeup in front of the camera, so it lessened the shock value. But when I was about 5, I once remember being on my mom's lap when a clown approached, I may have wet myself.
