Insane Clown Posse Is Suing The FBI For Labeling Their Fanbase A 'Gang'

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueLegal MattersCharlie Sheen

The only thing more entertaining than watching the Insane Clown Posse dissect Call Me Maybe or rap about Miracles will probably be to watch them try to sue the FBI in a court of law.

Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope filed a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation this week because their fan base — commonly called Juggalos — has been labeled as a "loosely-organized hybrid gang."

Apparently, getting wasted in the middle of nowhere while throwing beer bottles at Charlie Sheen during the annual Gathering of the Juggalos qualifies them as "a criminal organization formed on the street." That's what the FBI's 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report determined anyway.

Well, ICP and their fans and the entire music community have a message for the government agency — they're not a gang!

They're a posse. Duh! LOLz!

All jokes aside, they are legitimately upset about the classification. The rappers believe their fans are essentially being persecuted because if a Juggalo gets arrested for doing something dumb (like "selling weed"), instead of being charged "as a civilian", he or she can be charged "as a gang member."

Mr. 2 Dope expressed his concerns with this articulate statement to the press:

"You're trying to grow love in your country and sh*t, then the head of your country — the FBI — just turns around and f*cking kicks you in the nuts. How are you supposed to respond to that?"

Without dropping the F-bomb, perhaps? Just a thought!

We probably won't ever agree on much with these two guys, but we can agree on this: "Just because you like a music group, doesn't make you a criminal."

    So what? The government called veterans potential domestic terrorists, and how will they pay for that? On election day.

    Next, the effbeeeye will shadow Jimmy Buffet's parrotheads after shadowing Grateful Dead heads. Realistically, the juggalos as a concept are kind of out of a number agency's scope of understanding unless you're into clown posse. I'm not, and it took me a while to figure out what they were or were not, and I'm not certain I get it yet.

    Maybe you should check your facts perez.. the ICP is a DANGEROUS gang that is very prevalent in prisons .. yes they are different from the fans but they wear the bands logos etc. so it is hard to tell them apart.. hence.. the possibility of being charged as a gang member. HOWEVER, there has to be 2 gang related instances present to be charge that way, so just having an ICP shirt on or an ICP tattoo is not enough.

    lolz. Juggalos are too big of reject losers to organize into a legitimate gang. Unless you count being a general waste of a human being as "ganglike" activity.

    If you oppose what the FBI has done to ICP fans, you will want to read about their illegal covert activities with a search for "New police weapon against homeless" and "Historic coverup of FBI and police crimes currently taking place". Please share those threads with anyone you know who believes constitutional guarantees are worth protecting and that the FBI is not above the law. soxin8@hotmail.com Masters degree Harding University 1993
