Insane Clown Posse

Juggalos Case Dismissed

'Gang' Label Sticks for Now

The Insane Clown Posse and their Juggalo fans say they're NOT a gang ... but for now the FBI can keep calling them one because a federal judge has tossed out the band's lawsuit.

ICP had filed the suit -- along with several Juggalos --  claiming the FBI wrongly classified them as a hybrid criminal gang. They say police hassle them because of the gang label. One fan who sued is in the military and fears punishment from superiors. 

But a federal judge dismissed the case last week ... saying ICP should not have sued the FBI ... because the harassment is coming from local law enforcement agencies -- not the Feds. As for the military plaintiff ... the judge pointed out nothing's actually happened to him yet.

The Juggalos -- who usually identify themselves with tattoos of the ICP's hatchetman logo -- say the fight isn't over ... their ACLU lawyers have already filed an appeal.

So? They put people in the rap industry on the organized crime list in the 90's whether they were actually criminals or not. Get over it. If you can tell someone is a juggalo by looking at them, the cops were going to harass them anyway.

I'm bored. I think I'm going to listen to some Eminem. He he

These guys have more talent than most of the garbage being produced now a days. ICP Theater is like watching a train wreck ... But hilarious.
