Insane Clown Posse sues the DOJ, FBI: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Insane Clown Posse filed a federal lawsuit in Detroit, alleging the U.S. Justice Department acted unlawfully by classifying its fans as a gang.


The Detroit News said four of the rap-metal duo`s followers, known as Juggalos, are also plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which names the Department of Justice and FBI as defendants."


"Juggalo (feminine Juggalette, or Juggala in Spanish speaking countries.) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse. Juggalos have developed their own idioms, slang and characteristics."


The Insane Clown Posse with their insane blend of hip hop, horrorcore and comedy rap are an acquired taste, and I question the aesthetic and musical sensibilities of their fans.

But for the Justice Department to brand Juggalos as a gang is Orwellian nonsense, and an outrage that she be condemned by everyone from fans of classical music to rap music.

I`ll tell you who scares the Bejesus out of me, Jimmy Buffet fans known as Parrotheads. Buffet`s insane senior citizen fans follow the 67-year-old crooner all over the country and the world. Parrotheads wear Hawaiian shirts, parrot hats (don`t ask), binge drink margaritas, and generally upset the social order.

If anybody should be declared a gang it`s the Parrotheads. The Justice Department should get off the Juggalos ****, and just let everybody do his or her own thing.
