Germany announces ‘zero tolerance’ policy against creepy clowns ahead of Halloween

This Halloween will probably be different from previous years: Clowns have made headlines for weeks now, but not in a good sense. Now, there are fears in Europe and the United States that things could get much worse this weekend.

On Friday, the German Interior Ministry made the issue a priority, with Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière announcing a “zero tolerance” policy. Speaking to Chemnitz-based newspaper Freie Presse, de Maiziere said only a swift reaction by authorities would prevent imitators.

“This has nothing to do with harmless Halloween activities, anymore,” said de Maizière, indicating that police officials would be on high alert over the coming days, in particular.

After spreading in the United States, sightings of creepy clowns have been on the rise in Europe, where the phenomenon is new and researchers as well as authorities are struggling to find an appropriate response.

Now you can't even be scary on Halloween?

All "zero-tolerance" policies are attempts to eliminate basic human and constitutional rights.

Zero Tolerance allows Administrators not to do their job, but get paid their full salary.

Goes to show, politicians don't like competition.

Scare pranks aren't a good idea in a gun obsessed society.
