Crack open a warm Faygo ’cause this is gonna be good: the Insane Clown Posse is suing the FBI.
The Michigan rap group Insane Clown Posse filed suit on Wednesday against the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, saying that the United States government had made the “unwarranted and unlawful decision” to classify fans of the band as criminal gang members, leading to their harassment by law enforcement and causing them “significant harm.”
Also listed as plaintiffs are four Juggalos from Nevada, California, North Carolina and Iowa, who offered details of incidents in which they said they had been subjected to police harassment or other punishments because of their identification with Insane Clown Posse. (Via)
Future generations will study this case, about the time the big bad FBI was taken down (hopefully) by a bunch of dudes in black-and-white clown makeup. Juggalo History should replace learning about the Boston Tea Party.
