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. LINK
From the “You gotta be sh*tting me” file comes the latest bonehead move from the parallel universe of our vaunted Homeland Security services. In case you don’t know the “Insane Clown Posse” is a marginally successful Rap group famous for clown face paint, dousing their fans with Faygo (worlds worst soda) and God only knows what else. To be honest I didn’t even know they still existed. They are pretty much the joke of the Rap world and have always been.
Enter the FBI. In an act of sheer stupidity guaranteed only to raise the profile of a nothing Rap group and increase their fan base, the FBI has actually paid attention to the antics of some of their dopey fans. In a country where thousands of illegals cross the border every day and commit heinous crimes, the FBI has nothing better to do than watch these idiots? Really?
