Real-life Pennywise faces jail time in Ukraine

A notorious prankster who has been terrifying random passers-by is now facing up to 5 years imprisonment.
Since December 9th, a person dressed up as Pennywise the Dancing Clown from the recent movie adaptations of Stephen King's horror novel 'It' has been haunting the streets of Mukachevo.

In one video, the prankster can be seen sitting on a park bench after dark with a ritualistic circle of candles surrounding someone lying on the pavement. When an unsuspecting pedestrian happens upon the scene, Pennywise slowly gets up and then starts chasing the terrified man down the road.

In another, the clown can be seen hiding at a gas station. When someone arrives and goes to the kiosk, Pennywise jumps out and starts pouring gas (most likely its actually water) over their car.

One victim of the prank jumps into his car and speeds off, while another runs away down the street.
Perhaps the most terrifying video of all however shows Pennywise hiding on a bridge. When an unsuspecting pedestrian walks by, the clown emerges and fires a fake gun at a nearby actor.

Believing it to be a real shooting, the pedestrian makes a hasty retreat.

Now in response to the clown's campaign of terror, local authorities in Ukraine have begun an official investigation on the basis that the prankster's shenanigans violate the law on promoting violence.

Despite facing a jail sentence of up to 5 years however, the real-life Pennywise intends to continue.

"Our videos don't carry violence propaganda," he wrote. "Many write that we can bring people to a heart attack. I explain: we are not joking with old people and children. The prosecutor's office also took care of us, all I can say is to simply wish them success. [They'll] never stop us. It's just the beginning."

In the US, maybe. Don't know about how many people carry in the Ukraine. In any case, this clown should be prosecuted. Not funny, and (IMO) a danger to the populace. Someone will panic and run into traffic, or have a heart attack. Just because someone doesn't look old, doesn't mean they aren't harboring a heart condition.

These idiots are inciting violence on people?s right to public safety.  Horrific events like this can be highly traumatic for all ages.  Throw these degenerate fools in jail ASAP and let them bask in their own horror in prison shower.

That idiot wouldn't be able to pull that off in much of the USA for very long. Many have concealed carry licenses and he'd get his ass blown away. We don't play that **** and no jury would convict.

I know most of those videos are probably staged but I have to admit they can be funny as hell.

Since it's fake, I think the old saying applies, "It's only funny until somebody gets hurt...then it's hilarious." This guy is gonna get his comeuppance in a BAD way!

We all have freedom of speech and expression, no matter where we live. We can always say and do whatever in the moment. What we do not have freedom of, is the consequences of our speech or actions. Speech and actions have consequences. Theirs will be manifesting soon, inevitably.

It's about time people start cracking down on these clown scares. This garbage has been going on since 2016.
