School and police officials around the nation, as well as the Department of Homeland Security, are focusing on the creepy crimes of people posing as clowns, reports the Christian Science Monitor. Seven young people were arrested last week in Ohio for inciting panic and making threats. People in at least 10 states have been accosted and chased by people dressed as clowns – sometimes in multiples – though it’s also clear that false copycat clown sightings are abounding in places like Laurinburg, N.C., where the local police chief, after investigating a clown call, said, “We didn’t locate any big footprints.” Reports of clowns indirectly or directly threatening people and schools have caused far more stress than actual harm.
