Shock the clown

Alert South Side Bureau Chief Dena has informed me that former cop/counselor/daycare worker/minister/clown and noted downstate Illinois child molester A. Paul Carlock died in custody after being Taser'd by jail guards.

According to this story in the Springfield Journal-Register, Carlock had a pre-existing heart condition.

Carlock was better known as Klutzo the Clown.



He is now smoking a dog turd in hell.

While I am always happy to see a few less clowns in our midst, tasers are sure getting a lot of bad press lately, what with all the killing of people and such.

I'm just happy when my hometown makes the pages of your esteemed blog.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Nothing pisses me off more than people who molest and harm kids. I'd have tasered him myself if I could have.

Since he was a clown, I'm sure it was very funny.

Inside his herse will be several other clowns.

Grant Miller, hilarity will ensue, I'm sure.

Dr MVM...no kidding.

Splotchy, Springfield rocks.

Barbara, I hate to see Tasers getting a bad rap. I've been Tasered 3 times, no problems. The fact is, if you're a shithead with a heavy drug problem, and/or you're obese, and/or you've got a bad heart, and/or you've got a pre-existing heart condition, you shouldn't fight with the police and make them Taser you.

oh well one less crook to live of our taxes. the taser thing is getting much press these days wonder if they'll make people ask for medical histories before they can be used

What is it with Chicago and clowns? Please don't Bozo yourself, Bubs.

I nearly forgot — I hope the Bubs clan has a lovely Thanksgiving!

Not to minimize the hugely important job that is child care, but Klutzo sure had quite a downward career spiral, didn't he?

Though the phrase "smoking a dog turd in hell." pleases me greatly, something tells me hell is actually a smoke free zone.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. I guess he just didn't have his heart in his work.

I want to feel empathy. I really do. But, this is way too funny for me to feel that.

Karma? As long as that department doesn't get sued? Hell yeah!
