I grew up in Southern California. I was a scared kid, mostly because I didn't know the odds. I could always hear sirens out of my window and the Manson and Zodiac murders were all over the t.v. along with the nightly shootings. The fact is, we all think the universe revolves around us, so we think "well if somebody is going to be murdered by a clown, it's going to be me". It's just not true.
