Joe Bruno on the Mob – FBI Claims Juggalos Is A Dangerous Gang



My first thought was, “Doesn’t the FBI have anything better to do?”

I never heard of a Juggalos. In fact, I’m so old and out of the mainstream in music, I never heard of the Insane Clown Posse. And If I had heard of it, I must have thought they were an act in the Barnum and Bailey Circus.

But now the FBI claims that the Juggaloos are a dangerous street gang, in the same violent category as the Crips and the Bloods, and the Latin Kings and Gangster Disciples.

And I say “boo hoo” to that.

What is the evidence to support the FBI’s claim??

According to an FBI report, “The Juggalos, 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.”

The FBI report also says “The most prevalent Juggalo crimes are simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft and vandalism.”

As evidence of these claims, the FBI produced a picture of a Juggalo in full clown-faced makeup pointing a pistol at the camera. (Hell, I know people who do that every Halloween. Sometimes on Thanksgiving too.) Also, the FBI cited a single incident where two Juggalos were accused of beating and robbing a homeless man. This happens every day in the streets of NY City. And not by the Juggalos.

If that’s all the FBI has on the Juggalos, I say the FBI report, and all the time the FBI spent on compiling this report, was a waste of taxpayer money.

The mere mention of the FBI sends shivers down the spine of criminals, and rightfully so. Some people think the FBI is the greatest national crime-fighting force in the world. And they are probably right. Usually, the FBI works quickly and efficiently to fight crime, but in my opinion, not in the case of the Juggalos.

Imagine if we had a real crime problem in this country.

Imagine if illegal aliens were sneaking into America and committing crimes like murder and drug dealing.

Imagine if dozens of New York City police officers were arrested for crimes like drug dealing, “flaking” (planting drugs on innocent people), or, God forbid, fixing the parking tickets of numerous New York City blue-bloods.

Imagine if the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ran a covert operation that sent over 2000 guns into Mexico, and one of these guns was used in the murder of a United States Boarder Agent.

Just imagine.

What would the FBI do then?? Spend more time and taxpayer money investigating the Juggalos again.

J. Edgar Hoover must be turning over in his grave.

FBI report: Insane Clown Posse fans comprised of face-painting gangsters, not groupies
Feds label Juggalos a ‘criminal threats,’ lump them in with Crips and Latin Kings

BY Larry Mcshane
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

The FBI has labeled Juggalos, the face-painting fans of rap group the Insane Clown Posse, as a potentially dangerous gang.

Don’t let the makeup fool you: The feds say these guys aren’t just clowning around.

The face-painting Juggalos — hardcore fans of the hardcore hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse — were identified as a potentially dangerous gang in a new FBI “Threat Assessment Report.”

The music fans, who sport the same bizarre black and white greasepaint as their musical heroes, were lumped in with the Latin Kings, Crips and Gangster Disciples as “criminal threats.”

“The Juggalos, a loosely organized hybrid gang, are rapidly expanding into many US communities,” according to the FBI report.

“Although recognized as a gang in only four states, many Juggalos subsets exhibit gang-like behavior and engage in criminal activity and violence.”

The report indicates that the most prevalent Juggalo crimes are simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft and vandalism.

The report also included a picture of a Juggalo in full clown-faced makeup pointing a pistol at the camera. And its cites a January 2010 incident where two Juggalos were accused of beating and robbing a homeless man

The Juggalos responded by insisting they were no more threatening that your typical Deadhead.

“This is unfair!” wrote one Juggalo in an internet post urging his pals to sign a petition. “The Juggalo lifestyle has saved more lives than it hasn’t! Let’s see you gangsters say that!”

More than 400 fans of the band signed the online petition urging the FBI to drop their status as gangbangers.

An e-mail sent to the band Wednesday for comment was not immediately returned.
