Looks like Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix was shot by a clown at a family gathering. There has to be a joke or a childhood nightmare in there somewhere.

As if there wasn’t enough reason to mistrust clowns.

Freepers——

Now is your chance to tell how you have been scared by clowns ever since your 4 year old birthday party turned into a disaster with all the kids running home crying

The pictures don’t look so funny. But I don’t know what I was expecting to see.

Ok, I’ll start. When I was four I was frightened when
a clown at my birthday party pulled out a gun and shot
my old man in the forehead, but I’m over it now.

The comedy Real Men, starring James Belushi and John Ritter, included a “rogue” group of FBI agents-killers who dressed as clowns.

It kind of makes me wonder whether the US government has a team of clown-assassins outside of the White House.

It took more than an hour for authorities to arrive to the scene, it took about 5 hours for them to do their investigations at the scene.

Looks as if they weren't in any hurry to catch anyone. Might have been a government/military guy. But I thought most of them were 'bought' so maybe it was a rival group.

The perp, who had size 31EEE shoes, fled the scene, with his 14 clown accomplices, all in a Mini Cooper.

Funny but true:

You can’t put on any event on behalf of Sean Puffy Combs if any clown is appearing.

If he is a guest you must sign in advance that there will be NO CLOWNS.

I’m completely serious.

From the link:

Right now there´s a strong presence of both police and military personnel in the Los Cabos-Cabo San Lucas corridor, checkpoints have been established through the area.

Are they searching for someone with size 20 shoes?

Trust me, America will be blamed for the guns in Mexico and because of the movie...”Killer Clowns from Outer Space”.
