Reactions Split Over Insane Clown Posse FBI Lawsuit

By Lora Neng

While the ACLU continues to defend civil liberties of every character, some outlets have a different take on the Insane Clown Posse’s lawsuit against the FBI. The entertainment duo, comprised of band members Joseph “Violent” Bruce and Joseph “Shaggy 2 Dope” Utsler, filed the suit against the agency’s categorization that “wrongly and arbitrarily classified the entire fan base as a hybrid criminal gang.”

“Branding hundreds of thousands of music fans as gang members based on the acts of a few individuals defies logic and violates our most cherished of constitutional rights,” spoke ACLU of Michigan legal director Michael J. Steinberg of the pair, who were added to the 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment for crimes committed by people wearing “Juggalo” effects.

A Time magazine feature, however, brushed it off as a publicity ploy by an aging act in absurd makeup, sharing the older Juggalos’ derision of younger fans as trend-chasing “Merchalos.” Staff writer Nathan Rabin noted that the designation allowed law officers to frisk anyone wearing the Insane Clown Posse’s merchandise and thereby threaten their dwindling income stream.
