They are over-the-top, violent and nasty satirists whose lyrics middle-finger all of polite society and champion the misfits, the underdogs, the oddballs. Back then she observed members of other gangs covering up their gang tattoos with the Hatchetman and claiming they were innocent ICP fans. They joked about it on stage.

There was little similarity between the Juggalo and Trump events - although facepainting was also available at the "mother of all rallies" - and with the distance of the Reflecting Pool between them, there seemed little chance of any crossover. Am I out there shooting people up?" he said. "No.

That behind their wicked clown faces they are just a bunch of passionate, if proudly insane, music fans. "I was there for two days, with a line all the way out the door, all day long". The band, along with the American Civil Liberties Union, sued the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2014 seeking to change the classification but has so far had little success. It was dismissed several times and is now under appeal.

Jason Webber, an organizer of the Juggalo rally, said the group is apolitical but noted that numerous band's songs decry bigotry.

Insane Clown Posse was founded in 1989, and despite criticism of the group's crude and sometimes violent lyrics, it developed a considerable and dedicated following of Juggalos.

"They said these symbols are considered a gang symbol", Okan said.

Six years later, the problems continue. She worked as a probation officer for the Virginia Department of Corrections and posted on her Facebook page about her job, how she aimed to help released prisoners truly and legally reintegrate into society. She said she had been profiled by police in OH because of the gang designation.

The style was outrageous, but the goal was serious: Juggalos, as the band's hardcore fans are known, said the gang label is unfair and has cost them jobs, gotten them suspended from school, barred from the military and entered into gang databases.

His only hope of sticking with the team might be if one of the other backs get injured. "He's been such a fun player to watch. It was not a game where we developed the real feel for the running game like we want to.


A day of competing protests in Washington unexpectedly included a group of Black Lives Matter activists who appeared near the stage of a rally meant to support President Donald Trump.

"Juggalos are contributing members of society".

Scott Young, another Indiana Juggalo, said he's been pulled over because of the "hatchetman" stickers on his auto.

Insane Clown Posse will be performing in Easton next month.

"Let's march, mothaf--", Violent J said to end the rally, and off the Juggalos went, demanding their rights.

The controversy stems from the FBI's 2011 Gang Threat Assessment report, in which law enforcement officials listed the Juggalos - the adopted name of ICP's rabid, paint-faced fan base - as a "loosely organized hybrid gang", citing sporadic small-time criminal behavior but a larger potential for some subsets engaging in "more gang-like activity". They simply want what the Constitution guarantees - freedom of expression.

"As soon as they announced it, I knew I had to be here", said Dana Robinson, of Pittsburgh, as she weaved her way through the crowd in patchwork dress of Trump photos.
