    About 100 professional clowns, who themselves make money performing on public buses, marched through the capital San Salvador yesterday in protest at the killing of a passenger by two robbers dressed as clowns. ... The clown protesters - wearing oversized bow ties, tiny hats and big yellow trousers - marched down San Salvador's main street, many holding signs insisting that real clowns are not criminals.

    'We are protesting so that people know we are not killers,' said clown Ana Noelia Ramirez. 'The people who did this are not clowns. They unfortunately used our costume and our make-up to commit a monstrous act.'

    Clown union leader Carlos Vasquez said he plans to issue IDs to all real clowns and urged police to detain fake clowns that do not have them.

    Pics of the clown protest at the link. They have a point, it's hard to tell the difference between hardened criminals posing as clowns and actual clowns who as we all know are plain evil. :D

    Reminds me of that Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor movie - Stir Crazy. They weren't dressed as clowns, but close enough.

    Like they can verify the innocence of any of their clown membership.

    No shit. The mere inference of being a clown makes you guilty of something.

    It's like being Aussie.
