Hey Juggalos! As many of you may know, an award-winning documentary filmmaking team is doing a feature length documentary about the Juggalo family and specifically how the lame ass FBI gang designation is affecting our lives. They're looking for any footage you may have captured on your cell phone or whatever that shows Juggalos getting harrassed, threatened, or profiled by law enforcement officials.
Here's a message to the Juggalo fam directly from Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez, the filmmakers. Check it out!
Tom and Brenna here, from the “UNTITLED ICP DOCUMENTARY,” which is currently in production.
The “UNTITLED ICP DOCUMENTARY” explores the story of ICP and their landmark lawsuit against the FBI. Backed by the ACLU, the case could be a bellwether of change for First Amendment rights in the U.S. Under an agreement with ICP, we'll follow ICP and the Juggalos’ fight to protect American civil liberties.
We are currently looking for footage of Juggalos being harassed by law enforcement in any way — pulled over, arrested, interactions, outside concerts, at roadside checkpoints, etc.
Please help us tell your stories!
If you have any footage you think depicts police harassment of Juggalos, please create a FREE user account at the link below and upload it for our editors’ review.
It’s crucial to us to get beyond the media, and present a clear and balanced picture, based on facts and solid reporting.
Thanks so much,
Brenna Sanchez & Tom Putnam
