What IS going to & should be DONE about the scary clown sightings in South Carolina?
Isn't anything going to be DONE about these scary clowns who are trying to lure children w/money & other items?
I don't know what else can be done except people calling it in and police trying to find them. It's not even just in N.C., and no one is really sure what's going on-- if it's a marketing campaign, a fan thing for upcoming films, criminal conspiracy, just a trend where some criminals have started to see the potential? Who knows, but seriously these people are warped.
Majority aren't even doing anything but standing there waving or looking at people; only a couple have been caught trying to lure children. Most are only breaking the law by wearing a mask out in public. Some wearing make-up aren't even breaking the law. So again, unless they're actually caught doing something illegal, what can police really do about it?
These sightings are nothing new. All over the country there have been sightings in recent years, some exceedingly creepy encounters caught on security cameras. One in which a person dressed as a clown stood on a porch for a few hours, simply staring at the camera. Are they nefarious? Do they intend harm? Are they evil?
Doubtful. I imagine if anything was going to happen from this phenomena it would have by now. Not to say some lone prankster won't come along and by committing an act of violence or other crime give fuel to the fire of the prank being dangerous if not deadly. All the same, I believe it is simple pranksters, trying to get attention and cause a stir, just trying to scare people because to them it's fun. I am willing to wager these evil clowns would run from the police if they were to be spotted. Why? Because, that's a natural teenager response to getting caught. Either that or it's promotion for some B-Movie about clowns stalking a town or some other. The point is; throughout history these types of events have never led to anything beyond being a "mystery" as to why they did it or it's a promotion or a simple prank.
It's the weird ones that you cannot see you have to worry about.

There seems to be a definite division between Obama supporters and non-Obama supporters. Is there any common ground we can find amidst the rubble?
