STAFF PICKS

Staff Picks: Clowns, should you be worried?

Gabriel Bowlen: This fall has been full of clown sightings, especially in the southern part of the country. I’m honestly thinking about going to Walmart and buying my own clown mask. Not to join them, but to blend in, like camouflage. But really, the best way to avoid these clowns is to just go the other way, or if you can’t go anywhere else, just notify someone, and especially notify the cops. If an officer of the law is scared of a stupid clown, then I think people should worry. Other than that, you should just stand your ground, and not panic.

Henning Pankow: Many of these people dressing up as clowns are doing it for attention and to get a reaction out of people. In many ways they are like the classic elementary school bully. How were you supposed to deal with a bully? Don’t fight back or show emotion or give them any reason to keep pestering you. Simply remain calm and report him to the principle. This same tactic works with these clowns. Don’t freak out and scream because that’s exactly what they want you to do, just back away and call the cops. If they do inflicted harm against you, you have every right to fight back, so it may be smart to keep a weapon on you if there have been sightings of clowns near you.

Juan Orta: This clown problem is nothing to be worried about. It’s nothing but a couple of immature guys running around the country trying to make the news headlines. But, if you are seriously concerned and think that you and your loved ones are in danger, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to carry around some pepper spray. Although, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that you need a gun or any sort of lethal weapon to keep you safe. If you happen to spot a clown in the street, instead of turning to violence and beating the clowns like many people have this past week, stay out of their way and inform the police. Just to be safe and don’t let your kids run around the neighborhood alone this Halloween.

Izaak Jensen: The clown problem people have been seeing has been nothing real. About ten percent of the clown sightings are real while the rest are fake, planned out videos, fabricated to make a scene. The chances of you driving down a spur road and seeing a clown are not very high. That clown would either have to be very lucky and probably be all hot and sweaty from wearing costume all day with a chance of no one going by at all. It doesn’t seem like there are enough psychopaths in the world to account for all the clown sightings that have been uploaded on the internet. I don’t think this is anything to even be concerned about.
