Insane Clown Posse Sues the F.B.I….

In 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI added Juggalos to the National Gang Threat Assessment.  Juggalos are fans of the rap group Insane Clown Posse.

Now ICP and four Juggalos are suing the Justice Department and the FBI, saying the gang classification was an “unwarranted and unlawful decision” and should be removed. The American Civil Liberties Union is representing the Juggalos.

ICP is being represented by a Detroit law firm.

Violent J, one of the group’s members, said:

“When the label first came out, I laughed at it.  I had no idea how much it would affect us… Now it’s like a growing disease.  It’s affecting everything ICP does.”

ICP says sales of merchandise and concert tickets have gone down.  They also say police canceled a concert, citing the gang affiliation.

Meanwhile, fans say they are being harassed by the police and experiencing other setbacks. One Juggalo said the Army told him he could not join unless he removed his “gang related” ICP tattoos.

The FBI has declined to comment.

      Can you explain more how their tall is different than all other music fan talk and is gang talk? Also how they come together like a gang? I don’t know a lot about them.

    Anyone else see something funny in a person going by “Violent J” pleading the peaceful bona fides of a group on the FBI gang threat list? Like out of a Tom Wolfe novel….
