I hate these kinds of pranks. What if your “killer clown” gets double tapped? I could justify shooting the clown in any one of these scenes. It would be reasonable for the person shooting the clown to be in fear for his life, so no charges there. In fact, the video would be the primary defense exhibit in my trial, followed by the primary exhibit when I sued everyone involved for the emotional distress of forcing me to shoot someone.
Should everyone involved be prosecuted for manslaughter? Why is it funny to make people think that they are about to be murdered?
