FBI: 'Juggalos are a criminal gang'

FBI not happy.

For years now, fans of comedy rappers The Insane Clown Posse have been known as Juggalos. They wear face paint, they meet at the annual Gathering of the Juggalos, and now the FBI has classed them as a criminal gang.

Sorry, what?

Yes, according to Wired, the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment Report has called the Juggalos a “concern to law enforcement,” because of their "general destructive and violent nature". Yes the ICP are bad, but they’re not that bad surely…

The report goes on to classify what exactly the Juggalos are allegedly up to: "Most crimes committed by Juggalos are sporadic, disorganised, individualistic and often involve a simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft, and vandalism. .. However, open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity, such as felony assaults, thefts, robberies, and drug sales." You could say that about any set of fans. Only without the face paint and the terrible music.
