      obviously you are not a police officer nor do you know anything about the law. a person does not need to commit a crime in order to be questioned by the police. there is something called reasonable suspicion, which is all an officer needs to legally perform a terry stop and temporarily detain an individual to conduct a field interview and investigation. and an individual sneaking around at night, looking in people's houses dressed as a clown certainly qualifies as reasonable suspicion. i'm quite certain you're the type of person that would chastise the police if this person were to do something and the police took no action. there is absolutely no winning from a law enforcement standpoint with some people.

    john wayne gacy was a clown too. why dont we wait til this clown kills someone maybe 33 people and then ask what his is doing. You cant be too careful nowadays. If he is suspious id be calling the police.

    Better safe than sorry.
