Insane Clown Posse & 4 Juggalos Sue the FBI

FUSE TV - Insane Clown Posse & 4 Juggalos Sue the FBI

Hell hath no fury like a Juggalo scorned: Insane Clown Posse and four fans are officially suing the FBI for classifying Juggalos as a criminal gang in a 2011 government report. Filed in Detroit on Wednesday, the lawsuit calls the FBI's decision to classify ICP fans as "gang members" in four states an "unwarranted and unlawful decision." It also alleges that these four fans have been subject to police harassment because of their love for ICP.

One of the four Juggalos joining ICP in the lawsuit is Robert Hellin, an Army corporal with "visible ICP-related tattoos" who claims to be "in imminent danger of suffering discipline or an involuntary discharge from the Army" thanks to the FBI's decision to label Juggalos a serious threat. Another plaintiff was allegedly told he couldn't serve his country because of his ICP tattoos, which an army recruiter called "gang-related."

ICP first began proceedings against the government in September 2012, when they filed a lawsuit demanding the FBI fork over the information that led the bureau to label Juggalos a gang in the first place. This new lawsuit directly targets the FBI, alleging ICP and these four fans have been directly harmed by the FBI's decision to label Juggalos a gang.

"It gets laughs out of people but think about it—that's insane," Violent J told Fuse last year. "To name our fanbase a gang with Crips and Bloods and MS-13s.... I don't know where to begin with that sh-t. Does that mean our concerts are gang rallies now? Does that mean our merchandise is gang apparel?" Watch ICP explaining their decision to take on the FBI in the interview from late 2012 below.
