Back in the greater Kansas City metro. Police have been doing their best to keep Kansas City off the national radar as a creepy clown hot spot but Midtown, suburban and now JoCo teens are FINALLY starting to catch on this meme as a way to scare their elders.
A word of warning from a local lawman . . .
"Sooner or later, somebody is going to get shot. Let's just take a step back and look at this objectively: Teens are using this trend to roam around neighborhoods and schools, sneak up on people and scare them while wearing masks. It's a recipe for disaster and right now I think all of the metro law enforcement agencies are working on how to address the trend without putting it on the radar for even more stupid teens to go out and copycat. But the calls coming in are definitely increasing over the past week and we're just glad that nobody has been hurt . . . So far."
And so, Kansas city is turning the creepy clown trend into a popular prank.
Meanwhile, we want to remind locals that this coulrophobia is on the rise in Kansas City thanks to youngsters clowning this media trend.
