It’s an “only in America” story…
Last year, the FBI named the Juggalos, fans of the clown-faced hip-hop band Insane Clown Posse, as a “hybrid gang.” Now, the ICP is fighting back, telling fans yesterday that the band will sue the FBI, reports the Village Voice.
Apparently if they get classified as a gang, then there are harsher penalties and crimes committed by members can be attributed to the gang.
Insane Clown Posse has set up a website where Juggalos can document when they think they’ve had their rights violated, for free legal advice or representation.
Newser adds a quote:
“We’re not attacking the FBI, but they got this wrong,” says band member Violent J (Joseph Bruce). “The Juggalos are not a gang, and that needs to be fixed.”
What do you think about the Juggalos? Are they a violent gang, or just fans who get a bad rap?
