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!
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan and the Detroit rap duo Insane Clown Posse will host a press conference tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, to announce action on behalf of Juggalos – fans of Insane Clown Posse – in light of the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s erroneous designation of the Juggalos as a “hybrid” criminal gang. Previously, members of ICP had filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit in an attempt to find out what justification, if any, federal law enforcement authorities had for this designation.
Further details and a recap of the press conference will be released tomorrow here on insaneclownposse.com.
For the uninitiated, Insane Clown Posse‘s annual festival Gathering of the can seem intimidating at first glance—after all, it’s been linked to deaths, arrests and flying feces (and, of course, lots of spraying Faygo Soda). But Fuse travelled to the festival grounds in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois this summer to discover what, exactly, keeps Juggalos returning year after year.
According to concertgoers, the Gathering is more like an annual family vacation. “I can get through my shitty life knowing I’m going to be here and have so much fun,” one Juggalo tells Fuse of the festival, which includes concerts, amusement park rides and go-go dancers. “That’s why you come back. For all of us that have similar interests and taste in music, it’s easy to develop our bond. That’s why we’re Juggalo family.”
“Everybody thinks they’re going to get their ass kicked,” another Juggalo says of common misconceptions about the festival, “but it’s all love.”
“They think we’re gang members,” adds a female Juggalo, aka a Juggalette. “I’m a college graduate! I have two good jobs! I take care of myself, I’m not that stereotype. Everybody’s different, but everyone fits in at the same time.”
