Insane Clown Pose Suing FBI Over 'Gang Classification'
Horrorcore-rap duo Insane Clown Posse are suing the Department of Justice and the FBI for identifying Juggalos (the name given to ICP fans) as gang members, Rolling Stone reports. The complaint, filed in federal court in Detroit this morning reads "organized crime is by no means part of the Juggalo culture."

The FBI classifies Juggalos as "a loosely-organized hybrid gang." The ICP's lawyers claim that the "unconstitutionally vague" profiling of Juggalos has intimidated fans from expressing themselves, and denied them protection from unreasonable searches.

Speaking with Rolling Stone, Insane Clown Posse's Violent J notes that the duo's outsider status has led to the classification "We don't fit in anywhere. And when people don't understand you, people fear you. All we're trying to do is be like the Stephen King of music. We like to tell horror stories."
