Creepy Clowns Reach San Mateo






Image result for creepy clown hoaxImage result for creepy clown hoax






Lately we all have been hearing of the creepy clowns in different states. The clowns have reached San Mateo. On Wednesday afternoon there was a post from the "clowns" that said they would show up at two San Mateo high-schools. Police are currently monitoring this situation although there were no threats made. Police suggest not to engage in conversations with them or it will only encourage them. Schools in the San Mateo high school union district and the San Mateo foster city school district are closely being monitored.

Connection: This article relates to the Boston tea party because the people dressed as Indians went on the ship to throw out the tea and intimidate and scare the British. The clowns relate to the Boston Tea Party because even though they aren't doing harm yet they are scaring and intimidating the people.


Discussion question:
 Why do you think the clowns started doing this? Is it to intimidate, scare people and have a little fun? Or, do they actually intend to do harm?

  1. I think that these people are trying to harm others. I think if they were just having a little fun they would not be killing or kidnapping.

  2. I agree with Sara, the clowns are putting people in danger because they're creating panic. Making such a large group of people freak out is unwise because it could lead to attacks against people dressed as clowns that aren't actually harming anyone. That said, this whole clown thing is really weird and unethical.

  3. This whole clown thing is just stupid at this point. People think dressing up like a clown to scare people is funny, but in reality, like Edie said, they're putting people and themselves in danger. It might be all fun and games but this creates panic which then creates violence. I am personally done with this whole clown thing and cannot wait till this thing blows over, just another awful and weird thing added onto the list of 2016

  4. I agree with you guys. By them dressing up like clowns and scaring people is basically harming people because a good scare can get people to have a heart attack and die. Also, Kalisi has a good point of them wanting revenge of something, who knows what ? but its a great point. who knows.

  5. I think this is some sick joke to these people, because no one in their right minds would dress up as a clown to harass the people in the US. It may be fun for them, but it is not for us, this has to stop, other wise we could have KKK sized problems in the US once more, except they would be targeting everyone, especially high school kids and younger.

  6. I think these people just don't like kids and they want to cause harm. I kind of feel like it an also be connected to the KKK, because they would harm african americans.

  7. I think these people dressing up as clowns are just bored and trying to scare people since it's almost Halloween. Personally I find them really stupid, because who has nothing better to do than dress up as a clown and terrorize people.

  9. I feel like this whole clown situation has started off as a prank just to scare and intimidate people, but this gave actual murderers a chance to commit their crimes and use this clown image as their cover up or get away.

  10. I believe that the clown situation started off as a prank or a joke for a small group of people, but then escalated as more people started joining in and actually hurting people. These clowns are actually hurting and terrorizing people, meaning that they must be stopped before the whole situation becomes more and more out of control.

  13. I agree with Aaron this situation started off as a prank to scare people, but before that it was a promotional thing, for Halloween fest or something, now people love the site of people screaming in terror as they run away. Some clowns might have even went to far and tried to injury, or even murder people. But all I know is this act of terrorism is wrong and down right creepy.

  15. I disagree that this has to do with the boston tea party. The boston tea party was a message to the British that their taxes wernt welcome. It cost the British a fortune to replace the tea. There is no message being sent with the clowns, however. I dont see anybody organizing these clowns, or a movement with these clowns. This is a completely unorganized set of events that compiles to look like an organization.

  16. I think it's to intimidate and to bring attention to their organization.

  22. i thick that there was some people that wanted to do it as a joke, and there still is those people. but now there are people who are commuting crimes under those masks. i myself am scared to take the trash out at night because anything can happen in those 3 minutes. people are very angry that there are clowns running around in this country and causing harm. so people are fight back, but you cant tell the difference between a kid who is just messing around to someone who wants to hurt someone.

  24. I think some people started it out as a game to scare people, but others took it differently and started to harm people.

  25. I believe that the clowns started this as a joke but now I feel like they like the attention and the power that they have to intimidate others. It isn't right of them to scare people because murdering other humans is not something that should be joked about.

  26. I think it is just another hoax to strike fear into society. In America, we are quite sensitive to trends, or rumors, and to some people, it is very entertaining to see people freaked out. However, I do not believe this is a good idea to scare people falsely, there have been so much violence lately that if we can reduce any fear in society we should.

  28. I know these clowns are doing it just for attention, people nowadays do anything for attention. They're also doing it for the fun of it too since its October and the month of Halloween. When these clown threats first started showing up the clowns intended on harming people but now a lot of people are dressing up as clowns because they think its a joke and do it for the fun of it. Either way to get rid of them the best thing we can do is just not give them any attention so they'll just stop. Although we shouldn't give them any attention i can't guarantee i won't do anything if i see one.

  34. I think they started this for shock value. It created a lot of emotions for people all over the US.

  35. I think some clowns cause harm but mostly its just for fun for them. Nobody else thinks the clowns are funny and people are willing to use violence if they come across a clown.
