'Armed Clowns' Spread Panic in France! Halloween Gone Wild!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The party is over for a fake clown who received a six-month suspended jail term Monday for threatening passers-by while in full circus garb, a disturbing trend terrifying towns in northern France.


This fear of clowns, dubbed coulrophobia, has swept small towns in Pas-de-Calais in northern France where police report a wave of complaints over people dressed up as the tricksters and threatening passers-by.

A 19-year-old young man was arrested on Friday after waving a stick resembling a long knife while chasing a group of teenagers, who had to seek refuge in a chip stand."


In the United States there is an epidemic of clowns terrorizing citizens, they don`t explicitly threaten anyone or brandish a weapon, they just stand in a street corner, or walk up to a house, ring the doorbell and then walk away.

In France these fiendish clowns have taken it a step further; they are chasing children and brandishing fake weapons.

This devilish mischief has resulted in tons of teens wetting their drawers, but nobody in France bathes on a regular basis, therefore there hasn`t been an increase in complaints about foul body odor.

It is unconscionable that clowns are targeting children, adults have experienced the dark side and we may survive relatively intact after an encounter with a wicked clown, but kids who`ve been accosted by these emissaries of Satan will be psychologically damaged for life.

The fake clown got off too easy, he should have been sentenced to 10 years of hard labor in the toughest prison in France.

Halloween is not an excuse to let clowns roam free threatening civilians and wreaking havoc.
