So I have already heard some buzz on the Podcast posted Monday. I have even received some email about some of the things we discussed including a brief email that says our remark about clowns being pedophiles was both “inaccurate and rude”.
Let me say now and for the record that the show in many cases acts as a parody of extremes. Of course all Clowns are not pedophiles you crazy lady… just most of them.
And before you email me again to chew me out, read this from CNN as you take off your Big Red Nose and Huge Flappy Shoes.
FONTANA -- A man who dressed up as a clown and performed at dozens of birthday parties across Southern California will spend the next 12 years in prison for child molestation.
51 year old David Albert Lemus of Fontana performed as a clown named 'Trim Trim" for more than a decade.
Lemus agreed to plead guilty to child molestation charges.
Lemus was arrested in 2005 after two girls between the ages of 12 and 14 told police he molested them at the National Orange Show fairgrounds in San Bernardino.
Lemus admitted to charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child and oral copulation by threat, both felonies according to police.
As part of the plea deal, Lemus agreed to a sentence of 12 years in prison, according to Deputy District Attorney Briye McCann.
Five additional felony molestation charges were dismissed as part of the plea deal.
Police say some of the sex acts occurred while Lemus was wearing his clown outfit.
