The Juggalos Listed On FBI Gang Threat Report

Written by John Ritchie on October 28, 2011

Fans of Insane Clown Posse and Psychopathic Records, The Juggalos, have been listed alongside some of America’s most well known crime gangs in a recent report on gang activity. The National Gang Threat Assessment Emerging Trends report included the Juggalos alongside well known gangs the Crips, Bloods, and Aryan Brotherhood.

The Gang Activity Report On The Juggalos Reads:

A loosely-organized hybrid gang, are rapidly expanding into many US communities. Although recognized as a gang in only four states, many Juggalos subsets exhibit gang-like behavior and engage in criminal activity and violence. Juggalos’ disorganization and lack of structure within their groups, coupled with their transient nature, makes it difficult to classify them and identify their members and migration patterns.

Many criminal Juggalo subsets are comprised of transient or homeless individuals, according to law enforcement reporting. Most Juggalo criminal groups are not motivated to migrate based upon traditional needs of a gang. However, law enforcement reporting suggests that Juggalo criminal activity has increased over the past several years and has expanded to several other states. Transient, criminal Juggalo groups pose a threat to communities due to the potential for violence, drug use/sales, and their general destructive and violent nature.

Most crimes committed by Juggalos are sporadic, disorganized, individualistic, and often involve simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft, and vandalism. However, open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity, such as felony assaults, thefts, robberies, and drug sales.
