This Clown Stuff is Getting out of Hand

The clown craze sweeping the nation is not slowing down anytime soon.

What started as a strange prank in the woods of South Carolina continues to escalate as Halloween draws near, and it’s starting to get dangerous for the perpetrators.  Following reports of clowns on LSU’s campus, last night groups of “30 plus” went on the hunt for clowns with 2×4’s and tasers.

It’s hit much closer to home in Kentucky.  Two weeks ago a masked clown in Bell County was arrested.  On Friday a Winchester woman was attacked by someone in a clown mask on a hiking trail.  Yesterday a Bardstown woman was nearly shot in a case of mistaken identity.

While walking her dog in suburban Bardstown, the unnamed woman had her face covered with a white afghan.  Adam Tingle’s wife confused her for a clown.  Tingle tried to scare off the alleged clown by yelling at her.  When she didn’t respond, he fired his AR-15 into the air to scare “the clown” and called police.

Luckily, no one was injured.  Tingle was cited for second-degree wanton endangerment and his gun was taken when police arrived.

The clown situation is only going to get worse before it gets better, that’s why now more than ever we should listen to Doron Lamb: “Don’t Geek.”

    Wow, firing an AR15 into the air takes a lot of smarts. Those bullets have to come down somewhere, and when they do, it will be with enough velocity to kill someone.

      If he shot above a 45* angle, it is unlikely there would be enough velocity to kill someone and every degree above 45* decreases that chance.

      A .30-caliber bullet reaches terminal velocity at 300 feet per second, enough to penetrate skin and possibly kill. Any angle less than 90 degrees increases velocity, decreases tumble, and significantly increases the bullet’s lethal capacity. Thus wanton endangerment and confiscation of the weapon.

      Physics aside, it was a colossal loss of judgment, something you don’t want when you’re carrying a deadly weapon. Maybe he has a future as a cop.

      Do you have any idea of what the trajectory would have to be for that to happen? Much less, for it to be a fatal wound. It would be like Brickscoe going 5-5 on 3’s.

    Its not the clowns who are out of control, its everybody else who needs a safe place. I find it ridiculous that in this day and time, we tolerate the riots which are happening in our cities, yet freak out about somebody dressed as a clown in the country.

      I don’t have much sympathy for the anarchists who start riots, the creeps who dress as clowns to scare people, or the GI Jimbos who fire their rifles into the air to scare either of them.

      Maybe we should all just stop being jerks to each other for a while and see if that helps?

    Walking around with an afghan over your head is weirder than dressing as a clown imo.

    The clown in the picture…that’s what I envision cats paw to look like. Is that him? (yeah I know cp…mentioning your name means you’re living rent free in my head and that makes you a winner in your head)

      In my head CP is a much more disheveled and angry clown.

      I don’t hate you. I don’t care about you at all. If you died tomorrow it would not affect my life in the least. You are a sad little man who is a legend in his own mind. You have nothing better to do with your time than troll on this website. I pity your miserable existence.

      I don’t hate you either, paw. You would have to matter more for me to hate you. I’m just glad I can bring a little joy to your life because you probably don’t get much joy in life. Especially now that Louisville lost.
