You’ll probably see the news headlines popping up all over the Internet in just a few hours but here’s the info direct from Psychopathic. This morning, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope appeared at a press conference at the headquarters of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan in Downtown Detroit. The ACLU is THE most powerful civil rights organization in America and their sole purpose is to defend the Bill of Rights and Constitution and to stick up and fight for all citizens who are having their rights violated. Get this—THE ACLU HAS JOINED ICP IN THEIR FIGHT TO CLEAR THE JUGGALO FAMILY NAME! Not only is the ACLU joining the fray, but one of the biggest and most influential law firms in Michigan—Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone—are also volunteering their legal expertise to represent Juggalos who have been given the bone by law enforcement officials or experienced discrimination as a result of Juggalos being on the FBI’s list of gangs.
So what does this mean? With the ACLU and Miller Canfield standing with the Juggalos against the FBI, we have some VERY powerful friends on our side! The ACLU and Miller Canfield both think that the discrimination, profiling and harassment that Juggalos have been facing over the last few years in flat out WRONG and un-American so now they will be helping us fight our case in court. This represents a MAJOR victory for all Juggalos and I guaran-fucking-tee you that if anyone was laughing at the Juggalos VS. FBI case before, no one is laughing now. THAT’S how much influence the ACLU has and we are SO PROUD and honored to have them standing up for the Juggalo family.
We’ll keep you updated in the coming weeks and months as the court case unfolds. The fight to clear our Juggalo family name is STRONGER THAN EVER, ninjas. And shit just got real. Very real. STAY STRONG!
