Nip this craze in the bud

Dressing up as “killer clowns” should be nipped in the bud now, before it escalates any further.

Those wishing to dress up purely for the purpose of frightening vulnerable people – particularly children – appear to enjoy a sadistic pleasure from their actions.

Of course they are bullies, revelling in the power of inflicting fear and discomfort on the unfortunate victim.

I remember when people had more respect for others.
