Our childhood fears have been rationalized!
An Arkansas professional clown was arrested for child porn on Thursday while off duty.
47-year-old Thomas Harold Morgan performed as "Sondance the Clown" in front of children for years, but had a different relationship with them when he was in the privacy of his own home.
Police found "a lot of images" on his computer after online investigators detected his disgusting activities on the internet. There was so much evidence discovered at his residence that authorities said, "it would take them at least two or three weeks to go through all of it."
We knew there was a reason why we never liked clowns. It could have been the creepy make-up or maybe the fact that we watched the movie IT when we were entirely too young. Either way, we'll only be hiring magicians to perform at childrens' birthday parties from now on.
