Hopkins police solve clown threat

Anyone who’s ever raised a teenager can tell you a truism: Teenagers can be really stupid. It comes with the territory.

Hopkins police, however, are going nuclear with a young girl who posted this image on Facebook, contributing to the clown terror that’s been sweeping the home of the brave.

In a Facebook post today, Hopkins police say the girl was trying to scare her boyfriend by creating the Facebook image and post that suggested she was in a killing mood.

As usual with teenagers, hormones appeared to be involved.

“There are no other threatening clowns in our community that we are aware of,” the department said on Facebook.
