According to the FBI's most recent National Gang Threat Assessment report, Juggalos are now classified as a "criminal organization formed on the street". Shaggy 2 Dope gave this profound nugget of wisdom on the subject: "You're trying to grow love in your country and shit, then the head of your countryâ€”the FBIâ€”just turns around and fucking kicks you in the nuts. How are you supposed to respond to that?" To retaliate against "the head of our country", ICP filed a Freedom of Information Act against the FBI to release all of the information they used to classify Juggalos as a gang. They also launched a site, www.juggalosfightback.com, for Juggalos to discuss how anti-Juggalo The Man is. And they posted a video where they talk to a crowd about the consequences of this report: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwyFjrp8 ... r_embedded And suddenly, depressed 15-year-olds across the country feel way cooler because they think they have actual street cred. Personally, I hate Juggalos. Can't stand 'em. But I have to take their side on this one. Classifying all Juggalos as gang members is a sweeping generalization. I understand that many Juggalos are real scumbag criminals, There are even real gangs out there that consist mostly of Juggalos, but that is a very small percentage and can not be used as an adequate sample of the entire subculture. The vast majority of them are just ignorant, trashy people with terrible taste in music, or teenagers who want to feel accepted. While I may disagree with their lifestyle, I certainly wouldn't classify them gang members. Think about it this way: some dumb teenager who is a fan of ICP gets arrested on a misdemeanor charge. At the time of his arrest, he happens to be wearing an ICP shirt. Now he is a gang member in the eyes of the law, and will receive a harsher sentence accordingly. Because he is a fan of some shitty rap group, he is now ranked up there with real gang members who commit planned acts of assault, murder, theft, narcotics distribution, human trafficking, etc. It's just not right. But what do I know? Not much. So put your thoughts inside me and tell me what you think about this whole thing.
