Insane Clown Posse Files Lawsuit Against FBI & Justice Department For Harassment & Harm

Insane Clown Posse's Shaggy 2 Dope says that the group and its Juggalos are "not a gang. We're a family."

Insane Clown Posse (ICP) filed suit today (January 8) against the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), alleging that the government agencies labeled its fans as gang members without cause, which resulted in harassment and harm, according to

“Among the supporters of almost any group — whether it be a band, sports team, university, political organization or religion — there will be some people who violate the law,” the lawsuit filed by Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope says. “However, it is wrong to designate the entire group of supporters as a criminal gang based on the acts of a few. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened here.”

Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are among the plaintiffs in the case, which also includes four members of the ICP’s Juggalos fanbase, the story says. 

In 2011, the F.B.I. published a “National Gang Threat Assessment: Emerging Trends” report. It included a section that described Juggalos as “a loosely organized hybrid gang” whose members were “expanding into many U.S. communities,” reports. That report laid the foundation for the lawsuit ICP filed today.

ICP filed a lawsuit in 2012 against the FBI that requested the documents the government agency used in order to prepare its “National Gang Threat Assessment: Emerging Trends” report.

“We’re not a gang,” Shaggy 2 Dope said at a press conference regarding today's lawsuit. “We’re a family. We’re a diverse group of men and women, united by our love of music and nothing more. We’re not a threat, a public menace or a danger to society.”

    ICP and their movement attract the most pathetic people in the world. Just use google for a good hour or two and you can find stories of them killing their own babies, parents, etc etc... It might not be ICP's fault persay but you cant blame people for looking at them like that when so much of their audience is made up of mentally unbalanced white teenagers who will slit an old womans throat for the $10 dollars to get their next his of Meth.

      Haha, says THE pathetic little scoundrel believing everything they read on the internet. Classic. Good work, chum.

  • too chanez

    I don't know anything about their music and probably wouldn't care for it, but honestly, the FBI should have better things to do than this.

    The FBI and the cops are a fucking gang. They will terrorize you if they don't like the way you look, act, or talk to them. They plant shit on you. Shoot unarmed people. steal and sell drugs. Just like a gang.

    From personal experience, the "Juggalos" I know are way too pathetic to be related to any sort of criminal activity. The few I know are more interested in comic books, video games, and smoking weed than engaging in any sort of organized criminal behavior.

    I find ICP and their fans a bit distasteful, but a loosely organized hybrid gang. Seriously? That's like calling the Kiss Army a paramilitary organization. Being dirty and liking terrible music is not a crime, and being in a group of equally dirty people who like the same terrible music doesn't make you a gang member. Free the Juggalos!

  • Nate Higgers

    Juggalos are fucking losers. Obese, sweaty, no class, binge on fast food, wannabe thugs.

    Juggalos are the most degenerate group of people in the world. When I was in county jail I was locked up with a Juggalo, hatchet man tattoo and all, who was awaiting trial for stabbing his grandmother to death over her social security check...... ICP and their fans are the biggest losers in the world
