FBI Consider Insane Clown Posse Fans a Criminal Threat

Of all the dangers in society that we have to worry about, who knew young people wearing white and black face paint could be a hazard to our health? According to the FBI, that’s exactly the case with people who listen to Insane Clown Posse.

Wired reports (thanks to NME) that the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment describes ICP fans, better known as Juggalos, as a “concern to law enforcement” due to their “general destructive and violent nature.”

While the report states that most crimes committed by Juggalos are small-time, an increasing amount of fans are upping the ante.

“Most crimes committed by Juggalos are sporadic, disorganised, individualistic and often involve a simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft, and vandalism.”

“However, open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity, such as felony assaults, thefts, robberies, and drug sales.”

Apparently we need to be on the lookout for people wearing face paint and spraying Faygo Red Pop everywhere. Seriously, this is a joke. The FBI are going to target one specific group of music fans and put them in the same group as Crips and Bloods? There is an online petition protesting the report and urging the FBI to reverse their decision.

ICP were just at The Orbit Room in Grand Rapids this past September and I didn’t hear of anyone getting robbed and murdered. What do you think? Are you fearing for your life when you see a Juggalo walking down the street?
