Supporters of the rap group Insane Clown Posse, known as Juggalo’s gathered this past weekend n front of the Lincoln Memorial to protest what they say is class-based discrimination by law enforcement.
A 2011 report by the Justice Department’s Gang Task Force labeled the juggalos, who favor extensive tattoos and outlandish face paint, a “loosely organized hybrid gang.” It’s the same classification used for overtly violent gangs such as the Bloods and the Crips.
Around 1500 Juggalo’s demonstrated in an effort to reverse that decision.
Protesters chanted “family!” as well as several obscene slogans aimed at the FBI.
The band, along with the ACLU, sued the FBI in 2014 seeking to change the classification but with little success so far.
Law Officer is the only major law enforcement publication and website owned and operated by law enforcement. This unique facet makes Law Officer much more than just a publishing company but is a true advocate for the profession.
