ICP and their fans the Juggalos are a crude bunch of folks who truly do not give an F. If you're not familiar with ICP google is your friend but chances are you won't like them once you discover who they are. Me personally I like some of their music but I would never go to any ICP concert and that's because I'm not man enough
In any case, it appears the FBI has listed ICP and their fans as a gang so when ICP got word of this they submitted a FOIA to the FBI inquiring more information but as per usual the Gov't isn't giving up information easily so a lawsuit is on it's way.
I for one fully support ICP. God speed.
Insane Clown Posse files lawsuit against FBI
Insane Clown Posse, a Detroit-based rap act that mixes circus-infused rhythms with rhymes of lore and gore, has sued the FBI for ignoring a Freedom of Information Act request for evidence supporting the agency’s grouping of ICP fans as gang members.
A press release posted by the group on their official website this week acknowledges that an attorney for ICP filed a lawsuit against the FBI on Tuesday, September 25.
Lawyers for the group submitted a FOIA request in August to see copies of any and all documents that back up the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s inclusion of ICP fans — self-described “Juggalos” — on the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment’s report (.pdf). For failing to respond within the federally required timeframe, lawyers for ICP and their label, Psychopathic Records, intend on taking them to court.
The press release posted on InsaneClownPossee.com says that plaintiffs “filed suit against the FBI in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, alleging the FBI’s violation of the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) for its failure to produce any documentary evidence in support of the FBI’s classification of the groups’ fan base, the Juggalos, as a gang” in last year’s report.

In fact Juggalos are a family and not a gang no matter what the FBI want people to believe.
I'm sure the Bloods and Crips consider themselves families too.edit on 9/30/2012 by eNumbra because: (no reason given)

They are/were a gang, one of my friend is DEEEEPPP into ICP they both were leading a street gang called "Inner City Posse" and they did prison for various things... the last time they went to jail a rival gang broke into the house of one of their relatives forcing them to flee to another city...
They stated a rap group going by the same name "Inner City Posse" later renamed "Insane Clown Posse" due to a dream one of them had about a clown running in circle and then something about a carnival of horror I don't remember too well I would need to ask my buddy which I know would end up in a 2 hour expose on their lives so please don't ask me more and google LOL...
But yeah they were a gang and started a rap thing with blind followers going by the same slightly modified name they used to use as a gang... so...
