'Juggalos,' Trump supporters both set for National Mall rallies

Unsatisfied with the legal process, the Juggalos are set to march on Washington in the hope of gaining attention for their cause. Juggalos includes some criminal activity, but that it is unfair to single out followers of the Insane Clown Posse. Then all of a sudden they technically made it illegal to be a Juggalo.

The members of the Insane Clown Posse are represented by Howard Hertz and Elizabeth Thomson of the firm Hertz Schram and Farris F. Haddad of Farris F. Haddad & Associates, P.C.

But there are exceptions to every rule - and certainly an exception can be found in a large gathering of Juggalos airing their grievance against the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The band say they have faced discrimination in organizing shows, meet-and-greets and their annual Gathering of the Juggalos.

But Haddad said these agencies were following procedure, adhering to their policies based on gang affiliation.

Juggalos were classified as a "loosely organized hybrid gang" in the FBI's 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment. Social networking websites are a popular conveyance for Juggalo sub-culture to communicate and expand. In 2014, two men tried to carve and burn a tattoo from their housemate's arm because they thought he had disrespected the fan group. In 2014, the group joined with the ACLU to sue the FBI, but their case was dismissed by a federal judge, then tossed out of court again previous year - though the ACLU is planning another appeal.

The lawsuit asks a judge to order the DOJ to remove the Juggalos from the government's list of gangs so that the fans of ICP will no longer be unconstitutionally and unjustifiably singled out as targets for scrutiny and harassment by law enforcement authorities throughout the country. "Music is not a crime". One had to do with a violent home invasion, where a Juggalo was suspected and later convicted; and there was another violent crime associated in 2012.

"We're painting our faces and clowning around", said Fonz Tobin, a 25-year-old from Albuquerque, N.M., who joined the Juggalos when he was 13, according to USA Today. "It isn't fair just because this group depicts violent images, talks about very crude murder scenarios".

Fans of the freaky clown-makeup-clad rappers earned the gang designation in 2011 when they were listed in the National Gang Intelligence Center's National Gang Threat Assessment.

GettyA large crowd gathers for the Juggalo March. Psychopathic Records and its legal team, along with the assistance of the American Civil Liberties Union of MI, have been fighting to clear the Juggalo name via the judicial system for several years now. The lawsuit goes on to assert that the DOJ's classification of the Juggalos as a gang is unconstitutionally vague and violates the Juggalos' constitutional rights to association and speech. They say Juggalos are a family of outcasts, not a gang.

Marchers held signs that said "American Juggalo Taxpayer" and "Faygo not Fascism". We must collectively show them that we truly are a family that is united by a shared love of music and fellowship.
