Texts received at 3 a.m. that you have to check again in the morning to make sure weren't part of your dream about rampaging clowns.

"WiscAlert-453 W. Gilman man wearing a multicolored jacket displayed silver handgun and left running towards University Avenue. Avoid area. Police investigating."

"WiscAlert-Suspect described as a male with orange curly hair wearing a reggae style multicolored shirt with white shirt underneath. Continue to avoid the area."

My wife has a bunch of annoying apps on her phone. They crack, whistle and pop with useless information.

What makes you think the rampaging clowns were a dream?

What makes you think you aren't dreaming now?

Send in the clowns.

Hillary had this problem.

People kept bugging her at 3am. Some nonsense about being overrun by jihadists.

Hillary just thought it was more nightmares of Bimbo Eruptions.

exactly the same sort of PC crap that I complained about a couple of weeks ago.

what is the point of a description of a suspect without some indication of skin tone?

light skinned, dark skinned, etc

A store called "Amsterdam" is at that address, so the "male" is probably Hollandaisian and has a light-yellow skin on top.

Oh, the point? To keep people ignorant.

Maybe it was the Aurora theater shooter in this shirt.

Drill Sgt, do you honestly think that skin color was the key identifier here? Seems to me that avoiding anyone with orange hair an a multicolored shirt or jacket in or around the specified area would be enough. I recognize your point, in general, but it's not well supportable in this instance.

Should they have identified his religion, too?

Speaking of rampaging clowns...ever see the movie, Shakes the Clown?"

My nominee for "Bobcat" Goldthwait's greatest cinematic achievement.
