Juggalos = criminal gang

Juggalos are just amusing, face-painted teenagers who are baffled by the science of magnets and love the Insane Clown Posse, right? Well, not according to the FBI’s annual report on gang activity, which includes the Juggalos beside the Crips, Bloods, and Aryan Brotherhood on the list of America’s criminal gangs.

The FBI’s National Gang Intelligence Center reports that the group lead by recent Jack White’s collaborators Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J is a dangerous organized gang with a “general destructive and violent nature”.

According to the report Juggalos are:

“A loosely-organized hybrid gang, are rapidly expanding into many US communities. Although recognized as a gang in only four states, many Juggalos subsets exhibit gang-like behavior and engage in criminal activity and violence. Juggalos’ disorganization and lack of structure within their groups, coupled with their transient nature, makes it difficult to classify them and identify their members and migration patterns.

Many criminal Juggalo subsets are comprised of transient or homeless individuals, according to law enforcement reporting. Most Juggalo criminal groups are not motivated to migrate based upon traditional needs of a gang. However, law enforcement reporting suggests that Juggalo criminal activity has increased over the past several years and has expanded to several other states. Transient, criminal Juggalo groups pose a threat to communities due to the potential for violence, drug use/sales, and their general destructive and violent nature.

Most crimes committed by Juggalos are sporadic, disorganized, individualistic, and often involve simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft, and vandalism. However, open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity, such as felony assaults, thefts, robberies, and drug sales.

Consider yourself warned.

Last fall, the FBI officially named Juggalos “a loosely-organized hybrid gang.” This afternoon, Insane Clown Posse announced at the annual Gathering of the Juggalos “seminar,” a veritable State of the Juggalo Union address given to “the heartbeat of the entire Juggalo world,” that they were planning to sue the FBI in response.

In the agency’s “2011 National Gang Threat Assessment” report, the FBI identified Juggalos (“traditionally fans of the musical group the Insane Clown Posse”) as a “hybrid gang,” specifically “a criminal organization formed on the street” on par the Crips, Bloods, and MS-13. Prior to that, four states individually recognized Juggalos as a gang: California, Pennsylvania, Utah, and Arizona.

Please tell us more.

Are you a family because you're all related too?

Are you from one of the states where it is legal to marry your first cousin?
