The ACLU and members of the Insane Clown Posse have filed a lawsuit against the FBI over its classification of the Juggalos (ICP fans) as a gang. Once the FBI calls your subculture a gang, you lose a bunch of rights: the cops treat visible symbols of affiliation as probable cause for stop-and-search, you're prohibited from joining the military, and you are generally discriminated against by government officials.
The best part of the whole thing is that the plaintiffs came to the press-conference in full ICP makeup.
The State Trooper indicated that he detained Parsons for an inspection because of the hatchetman logo on the truck.
The State Trooper indicated that he considered Juggalos to be a criminal gang because of the DOJ’s designation.
The State Trooper asked Parsons if he had any axes, hatchets, or other similar chopping instruments in the truck. Parsons truthfully answered that he did not.
The State Trooper continued to search the truck and interrogate Parsons for about an hour, delaying Parsons’ time-sensitive hauling work. During the search, the State Trooper did not find any weapons or contraband. The State Trooper did not issue a ticket or other citation to Parsons.
