ICP’s Lawsuit Against The FBI Revived

September 18, 2015 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Billboard reports that a federal appeals court has reversed a lower court’s ruling and brought back a lawsuit filed against the FBI by the Insane Clown Posse (Joseph “Violent J” Bruce and Joseph “Shaggy 2 Dope” Utsler). They claim that police have unfairly targeted their fans, called Juggalos. This comes after a 2011 FBI report which said the Juggalos are a “loosely organized hybrid gang.”

A Detroit Federal Judge said the Justice Department isn’t responsible for how police use the report, but the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan said that free speech and due process rights of the group and its fans were violated.
