    In a ruling that calls into question both the meaning and the relevance of what it is to be defined as a "gang" in the US, a district judge ruled today that the FBI cannot be blamed for any fallout that may have arisen (or may arise) from the determination of Juggalos as members of a gang in 2011.

    Fans of the Insane Clown Posse band, recognized for their makeup and attire, were determined a "loosely organized hybrid gang” in a 2011 FBI report on gang culture in the US. Juggalos, as they are known and self-identify, rejected the label, suing the FBI for discriminating against their cultural identity in a way that, according to their ACLU attorneys, violated their constitutional right to free expression.

    Indeed, the FBI's application of "gang" to Juggalo culture highlights the paucity of how groups are delineated and understood by US authorities. Given the fact that, as the FBI report itself stated, a number of Juggalos have engaged in "individualistic" instances of crime — including assault and vandalism — the entire community earned gang status.

    However, according the most recent ruling, the FBI cannot be held responsible for how law enforcement treats Juggalos, since, according to Judge Robert Cleland, the report specifically “does not recommend any particular course of action for local law enforcement to follow, and instead operates as a descriptive, rather than prescriptive, assessment of nationwide gang trends."

    I just read this book

    It has given me this strange endearment for ICP fans. I still think they are pretty ridiculous, but it has provided me with some empathy.

    Only good thing about Juggalos is video of Juggalettes getting getting plowed by randoms at their concerts.
