Default Fucking Juggalos! How do they work?

I had to double-check to make certain this wasn't The Onion:

Quote:
The FBI considers the fans of shticky rap group Insane Clown Posse to represent a threat on par with the Crips, Bloods, and Aryan Brotherhood, according to its annual report on gang activity.

You might think Insane Clown Posse’s people — known as the Juggalos — are just a group of face-painting teenagers who wonder how magnets work. Not so, says the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment. To the feds, Juggalos are a “loosely-organized hybrid gang” that are “forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity.”

Consult page 22 of the FBI’s brand new annual report on gang activity nationwide. (.PDF) Listed in the same breath as street gangs with ties to murderous Mexican drug cartels is the Juggalo threat...
Great job guys!

First they came for the clowns,

About four years ago one of the lawyers in our office had a client whose teenage daughter was facing multiple delinquency charges arising from separate incidents. A drug possession charge arose when the cops searched the kid and a rather large groups of her shitheaded friends. They were hanging out after dark in a parking lot in Aurora, Colorado, a suppurating pustule on the anus of humanity.

As the police report described it, two Aurora cops rolled up on the gathering, got out of their car and started asking questions. Everything was going just fine, or so the cops say, when one of the little scamps flashed an ICP gang sign. At that point the cops freaked, drew their weapons and put everyone up against the wall. Within minutes the whole goddamn Aurora police department was on the scene. They ultimately searched our girl's purse and found some prescription pain meds she apparently stole from a friend's mother.

Was my first reaction to analyze what (if any) probable cause and/or exigency justified the search of the kid's purse? Shit no. My first reaction was, "Juggalos are a gang?! And they have SIGNS??!! Holy fucking hell, why haven't I heard of this before?!"

The Internet is finally beginning to provide some much-needed insight on the all-important subject of ICP gang signs.

I can't see this at work.

"Based on your corporate access policies, access to this web site ( Juggalo Gang Signs | Driven By Boredom ) has been blocked because the web category "Porn" is not allowed."

It seems this gang is branching out into other unscrupulous areas.

So one day, I'm driving to lunch with a work friend, when I see this stupid car I always see.

Me: UGH, there's that stupid car with the vanity plate for apartheid!
Him: That one? APRTHD? I think that's supposed to say "A Parrothead," like those Jimmy Buffet fans.
Me: Oh. Hey, yeah, you're probably right. That's even worse!
Him: It really is!

I'd just like to thank Matlock for linking to a Juggello porn site, thanks.
This only confirms what I thought about you.

Great job guys!
And this designation has now been legally challenged in court. The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan in Detroit ruled against the "Plaintiff-Juggalos", as they're described in the appellate decision, on standing grounds, but the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit reversed their decision and remanded the case back to the district court.

The background and reasoning of the 6th Circuit's decision is described here: Fucking First Amendment Standing, How Does It Work?

From the opinion:

Quote:
[Plaintiffs Joseph] Bruce and [Joseph] Utsler are members of ICP. In August 2012, they contracted with AEG Live to perform at the Royal Oak Music Theater in Royal Oak, Michigan for their annual musical event known as “Hallowicked,” to be held in October 2012. On October 8, 2012, the Royal Oak Music Theater cancelled Hallowicked without prior notice. “After discussions with AEG Live and Royal Oak Music Theater, ICP’s record label discovered that the Royal Oak Police Department asked the Royal Oak Music Theater to cancel the event. When asking the Royal Oak Music Theater to cancel the Hallowicked event, the Royal Oak Police Department cited the federal Juggalo gang designation.”
To read the Sixth Circuit's opinion, one would never know that these plaintiffs are none other than ICP founders Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. Very sloppy work indeed.

I almost feel bad for this guy, who (if he's telling the truth) got trolled in a very big, expensive and painful way:

Quote:
[Plaintiff Scott] Gandy has large ICP-related tattoos on his chest. In 2012, Gandy visited an Army recruiting office where he was asked if he had any tattoos. Upon displaying his tattoos, Gandy was told by the Army’s recruiting Sergeant that Juggalos “were on the federal government’s gang list.” The Sergeant said that he “considered Gandy’s Juggalo tattoos to be gang-related” and then “questioned Gandy about whether he was a gang member.” “The Sergeant instructed Gandy that he must remove or permanently cover his Juggalo tattoos or the Army would immediately deny his recruitment application.” As a result of this instruction, Gandy went through the painful and costly procedure of covering his Juggalo tattoos with other tattoos. He returned to the recruitment office, showed the Sergeant his new tattoos and received approval for his application to be considered. However, Gandy was ultimately denied a position.
