Insane Clown Posse's Statement On Appeals Court Ruling
So check this out, Juggalos. Yesterday we had a big victory in our ongoing fight to remove Juggalos from the FBI's gang list. Though our initial case was thrown out of court, we appealed the judge's decision and thanks to our kick ass legal team and our homies at the ACLU of Michigan...we were granted an appeal and now WE ARE GOING TO GET OUR DAY IN COURT! The judicial system has ruled that Juggalos DO indeed have a legal case against the Department of Justice ... and now were going BACK FOR ROUND 2! We'll let you know when the court date is set but in the meantime, this is a MAJOR STEP IN OUR FIGHT TO CLEAR OUR FAMILY NAME!
This morning Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope released the following statement:
“We’re thankful that the Juggalo family will finally get their day in court. Discrimination against someone based solely upon the type of music they listen to is just flat out wrong and it’s time that the legal system acknowledges that. The FBI’s labeling of Juggalos as a gang has wreaked havoc on thousands of lives, resulting in job losses, dismissal from military service, eviction, lost child custody and constant harrassment and profiling from law enforcement organizations all across the country. We thank our incredible legal team and the ACLU of Michigan for standing up for the rights of Juggalos and we can’t wait to get back in that courtroom and fight to clear our family name. To all Juggalos … thank you for standing strong with us in this battle and MUCH CLOWN LOVE! WHOOP WHOOP!”
