‘Juggalos’ classified as a gang in FBI report



Fans of notorious US hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse have been officially classified as a gang. A new FBI document has categorised the Juggalos as a “loosely-organised hybrid gang,” citing the group’s violence, criminal activity and “gang-like behaviour”.

Fans of the Insane Clown Posse have called themselves Juggalos for more than two decades, developing a reputation for face-paint, Faygo soda, and a scepticism toward magnets. Although based in the United States – the ICP are from Michigan – it has become a worldwide movement; a UK Facebook group has more than 600 members.

Unfortunately for harmless fans of horrorcore rap, Juggalos are now officially “of concern to law enforcement,” according to the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report. Juggalos have been tied to a string of recent crimes, including a shooting in January and the assault of a homeless man last year. “Open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organised subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity,” the report alleges. “Transient, criminal Juggalo groups pose a threat to communities due to the potential for violence, drug use/sales, and their general destructive and violent nature.”

    Ive been listening to Insane Clown Posse for 13 years and am a Juggalo, I have never been in jail or had any violent behavior. I got good grades in school and went to college afterwards, people need to learn before they write garbage like this article.

    I think its dumb to classify the entire group as a gang, when it’s obviously a few who are actually committing the crimes.

    but,

    that’s America for ya, deal with it

    Another classic case of fear mongering. This country thrives on it.

    I can actually understand that. Where I live there is a group of people that dress up like the icp and consider themselves juggalos and they act like a gang. I even know one guy did spend some time in jail for robbery. I think calling all icp fans jugglos is ridiculous but there are some that take it way too far.

    if i was a big ICP fan and didn’t do all the Jugglo behavior, i would just call myself an “Insane Clown” instead of jugglo. i bet this splits the ICP fan base in half.
