A 2011 FBI report described fans of the Detroit rap-metal duo as a “loosely organized hybrid gang.”
“This is not the end. We’ll keep fighting to clear the Juggalo family name.”
The U.S. Justice Department has urged a judge to dismiss a lawsuit that blames the government for the negative effect of describing fans of Insane Clown Posse as a loosely organized gang.
The issue is a 2011 decision by federal law enforcement identifying Insane Crown Posse fans as a “criminal gang”.
Is being a fan of a certain rap group enough to make you part of a gang?
In 2011, the FBI included Insane Clown Posse fans — known as Juggalos — in a national report on gangs.
Several vendors at the Gathering of the Juggalos say they’ve received bad checks.
He added Juggalos have lost custody of their kids, been detained in separate jail cells, been pulled over because of ICP bumper stickers, photographed and put into local police gang databases.
Lawyers for rap-metal duo Insane Clown Posse have filed a lawsuit in Michigan seeking documents that would explain why the FBI considers its fans a gang.
