No Laughing Matter

The most recent spate of “clowning” has residents scared in places that typically don’t experience such outlandish and bold threats.  On the whole, one shouldn’t be too concerned that folks wearing clown masks on (or before) Halloween will pose a serious risk to public safety.  However, there is an emerging trend, which combines popular culture and criminal intent, that should worry citizens.  Law enforcement is considering each threat on a separate basis, but the fact that some national-level criminal activity (telephonic hoaxes, assaults, attempted luring) is now associated with clowns is perhaps a matter for which caution should be duly exercised.  One article, for which TRAC Intelligence’s founder and CEO was interviewed follows: “NoCo Clown on Hoaxes: Clowning Should Bring Joy.”
