    The FBI has declared that they consider the Juggalos to be a gang.  This is complete BS, we are family but in no way can we be considered a gang.

    Juggalo or Juggalette (the latter being feminine) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group.

    Does the FBI not have better things to spend taxpayer money on?  Do the Parrotheads that follow Jimmy Buffet around also count as a gang?

      You've always been a gang member.

      You're a member of the biggest gang in the country.

      You're a member of the US.

    Frankly I never saw the appeal of gang life even though at a young age I got in one to cut down on the many gangs I had to fight because I belonged to none.

    I have read that the life span for gang members are a lot shorter then for the general public.

    Living with tension is a way of life that ought help cut down on one's health.

    As long as one is in reasonable good physical shape they are useful to a gang but gangs as I've known them have always been selfish and so if they can't use you then they have no use for you.

      I think Kiss was almost first. When I was a kid, religious organizations told parents not to allow their kids to listen to Kiss music. These organizations stated that Kiss was an acronym for Knights In Satan's Service. Further, that there were subliminal messages hidden in the music that would influence kids to join Satan's Army. Fortunately, the FBI didn't agree! People joked around saying, "Yeah, they're building a Kiss Army". It kinda stuck and the band embraced it. God I am old. The happy news was I still got to buy my Destroyer album! lol

    During Marine Bootcamp indoctrination the Drill Instructors asked the recruits to raise their hands if they had ever been in a gang, and then they followed this up with, "you are now part of the largest, most powerful gang on the planet, the U.S. Marines!"

    With this said, there is precedent for this type of activity...  The Suicidals, or the gang founded by Suicidal Tendencies/their followers caused a lot of problems in the past...of course, I don't know anything about what their up to any more...

    Either way, I'll have to check out this Juggalo thing..

      They are pulling down youtube videos and all.  This is a mess actually.

      I would guess that any gang called Suicidal Tendency would be short lived.

        S T had a nice run back in the 80's.  I think Juggalos are a different breed,  we consider each other family.  We despise racism, hatred and treat each other as family.

        There is no organization and no organized criminal activity.

        A Lo or Lette may do something stupid but that should not reflect on all of us!

        Just another way for the Feds to make everyone potential domestic terrorists.  F 'em
