We learned that Insane Clown Posse filed suit against the FBI for classifying their fans, the Juggalos, as a gang. (Everyone's still scratching their heads about magnets, though.)
Date: January 8
"In 2011, the FBI classified Insane Clown Posse's fanbase, Juggalos, as a gang. The following year, the ICP filed a lawsuit against the FBI, alleging that the agency did not respond to a Freedom of Information Act request explaining the criteria that led to this designation. While that suit was eventually dismissed, ICP has filed a new lawsuit against both the FBI and the Department of Justice, this time in conjunction with four fans and the American Civil Liberties Union.
The suit alleges that the FBI is using 'unconstitutionally vague' criteria to designate the Juggalos as a gang. 'None of the information revealed showed any significant link between any significant percentage of the Juggalos and the kind of criminal behaviors that the Department of Justice is supposed to be targeting through these gang initiatives,' said Saura Sanu, a lawyer assisting the ACLU." —Dharmic X
