Clown Mania Hitting a Fever Pitch as Law Enforcement Takes Action! - Attacks and Arrests! - Let's Keep Track, Post Your Local Clown News Here!
If you haven't already noticed, people are losing their shit over clowns all across the United States!

People are overreacting on social media saying they would shoot a clown if they saw one that scared them. Teens have been prank calling and dressing as clowns to scare people.

Law Enforcement all across the country are being overwhelmed with reports of sightings and threats and they are taking it seriously. Teens are been arrested and charged.

I've heard some say American Horror Story is responsible for the uptick. Other's have said it's the Rob Zombie movie, "31." What do you think it is?

Let's keep track of what's happening by sharing our local news stories related to the clown mania. Let's not keep it to just the United States. If you are in another country and have seen news stories in your area please share them here.

I'll start... Today 3 young men were arrested for dressing as clowns and carrying a Halloween plastic machete. They were charged with, "disorderly conduct for breach of the peace."
I kind of think it's extreme to charge them. The police are taking it seriously. The Reeves County Sheriff’s Office where this happened warns that they will arrest anyone who continues any involvement in the “clown epidemic.”

Here's another one I wanted to share.

In Tulsa, Okalahoma a man was attacked by a man dressed as a clown while the man was walking his dog.

"The clown allegedly grabbed the man, hit him and wrestled him to the ground. The victim had cuts and bruises on his face and hands.

Officers say they are not sure if the clown had some kind of weapon but knew the attack was serious enough to cause severe bruising. The man is expected to be OK."

There were pictures on social media here of a wasilla Alaska parking lot with a bunch of teens dressed up charging at cars. Also in anchorage of a couple walking out of bushes and just staring at people. We're an open carry state, so not the best idea.

I'm not personally scared of clowns, but this has turned into a method of intimidation and doing it to little kids is just wrong. I really don't care if it's a clown mask or my little pony mask, if you're creeping around trying to freak people out, you deserve what you get.

Portland, Oregon.

"Man in clown mask arrested for menacing at Portland middle school"

"Whether it's related to national clown panic or just an unhappy coincidence, a clown in boxing gloves -- technically a man in a clown mask -- was arrested Thursday morning after menacing students and then charging the assistant principal at Floyd Light Middle School, police said.

In a press release from Portland Police Bureau, police said that 55-year-old David Dahlman was arrested and then booked on charges of Menacing Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree."

I'm wondering if some of these arrests are unjustified? I wonder if charges may be dropped later. Better Call Saul.

Also if you are a teen and your and your friend's are thinking it would be fun to go scare people dressed as a clown or make clown threats on social media or prank call the police, please don't. You might end up arrested or even worse, dead.

That's an article from my local paper. Nothing so far in town apparently for creepy clowns, but at least it's nice to know that the cops in my area are taking them seriously.
Conspiracy Theorist is nothing more than a derogatory title used to dismiss a critical thinker.

A time is coming when men will go mad,
and when they see someone who is not mad,
they will attack him, saying,
'You are mad; you are not like us."

Clown Sightings Reported in SoCal Prompt Advisories, Warnings From Local Law Enforcement

On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department also warned of a new "prank" in Lancaster involving a group of males wearing clown masks who are possibly armed with kitchen knives. In three separate instances, the group went up to pedestrians and attempted to "scare" them, according to a sheriff's news release.

In Prince George British Columbia,two clowns were seen peeking in windows in "the Hood" part of town, yesterday.

Yesterday evening somebody posted a picture of 3 clowns with shotguns and threatened to attack schools today.

Today, all schools were placed on lockdown, and the RCMP arrested two perps who had posted the threats.
