"On Monday in Michigan’s Eastern District federal court, attorneys for the United States Department of Justice filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit brought against them by the band Insane Clown Posse (ICP) and four of its fans, known as Juggalos.

The lawsuit was originally filed in January, three years after the FBI and Justice Department (DOJ) first added Juggalos to the 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report, stating that ICP fans were a “loosely organized hybrid gang.”

The plaintiffs say that classifying music fans as a gang is ridiculous and inaccurate."

Juggalos may be silly, but they are not gangsters. This is ludicrous.

This is pretty ridiculous. Sure, there have been gangsters who have been Juggalos, but that doesn't mean every Juggalo is a gangster. Is every death metal fan a Satan worshiper who kills cats? No. There have been a few, but that doesn't speak to the group of fans as a whole.

Not to mention no one has listened to ICP since I was in high school, which was last in 2003. The wheels of justice.
