IT.....started long ago.
Clowns are always the creepy bad guys. I think, in the name of political correctness, we need some red nosed sleuths to show that not every man who dons a pair of size 36 shoes, a baggy polka dot suit and whatever that collar thing the guy in the pic has is an evil menace. Perhaps Columbozo, Ko-Kojack, the Hardy Har Har Boys... DGIS now accepting all clown detective puns while supplies last.
