Over the weekend, rap-rock collective Insane Clown Posse marched on the Washington. They were joined by a legion of Juggalos, to protest against them being labeled as a gang by authorities.
In 2011, an FBI report was released describing the fans of Insane Clown Posse as a “loosely organised hybrid gang”. The band sued the federal police and the US Justice Department over in 2014. However, the case was later dismissed from the courts.
Violent J and Shaggy 2 arranged the march last summer, called The Juggalo March. However, a pro-Donald Trump rally was also penciled in capital city that day. Luckily, the Juggalos massively outnumbered the ‘Make America Great Again’ clan, and violent clashes were also avoided.
Reason TV covered the event and put together this special report.
Juggalos are people, too, and just want to be seen as a peaceful, loyal following of their favourite band.
