Tacoma Police list Juggalo as member of “Insane Clown Posse Gang”

Before starting this article, I do want to make it clear that if the accounts about the Juggalo in the story are accurate, this ninja definitely wasn’t doing himself any favors.   He was acting strangely on a motorcycle with no tags, wrecked, had a hard-to-believe story about how he obtained the bike, and a warrant.

The part of the story that is concerning is that in his arrest records, he is “listed as a Juggalo: a member of the Insane Clown Posse gang

Some will read this and say he had it coming.  But the bigger picture is that he IS on the “Gang list”, in Tacoma, Washington, due to being a Juggalo.  You can see the account of the incident below.

From TheNewsTribune.com:

April 25: The motorcyclist drove through the Wal-Mart parking lot in Graham, catching the eye of two deputies on patrol nearby.

The bike had no license plate. The rider behaved strangely. He hopped up and down on the seat, then started to weave away.

The deputies followed, turning on their emergency lights. The motorcycle accelerated. Store employees and customers in the parking dove out of the way to avoid being hit.

The driver abruptly lost control, and slammed the bike into a concrete pole. The rider fell, stood, and raised his hands as the deputies approached.

They cuffed him. He apologized and said he ran because he had an arrest warrant. The deputies checked records and found it. The man, 28, had a warrant tied to a car theft charge. He was also a convicted felon and a violent offender, listed as a Juggalo: a member of the Insane Clown Posse gang.

Another records check revealed the motorcycle was stolen. Officers searched the man’s backpack and found a shaved key and a metal file.

The man said he got the motorcycle and a car yesterday in a trade with a friend named “New York John,” who showed him how to start the motorcycle with the shaved key. The man said he’d traded $1,000 and a Ford Taurus for the motorcycle and a Toyota Corolla.

No, he didn’t have any paperwork. No, he didn’t know John’s real name or how to find him. John said the motorcycle wasn’t stolen. The man admitted the whole deal sounded fishy.

“If someone didn’t think the bike was stolen they would be either stupid or high,” the man said.

Was he high now? No.

Where had the man gotten the $1,000? The man said he’d been saving. No, he didn’t have a job.

Where was the Corolla? The man wouldn’t say.

Deputies booked the man into the Pierce County Jail on the warrant, along with suspicion of eluding, possessing a stolen vehicle and possessing vehicle theft tools.

It would be interesting to see who else made it onto Tacoma’s “Insane Clown Posse Gang” list, and what criteria they had to meet to be included.  I’d love to see your thoughts on this, so feel free to comment!

    Police are like politicians, totally out of tune of reality and the people they serve.

    Sounds like being a juggalo was the least of this guy’s problems…

    The City of Tacoma’s website still links to their 2011 Gang Assessment, and it echoes the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment by calling Juggalos a “loosely-organized hybrid gang”. I wonder if Washington can be legally compelled to update their gang designations to the FBI’s 2015 National Gang Report (which doesn’t mention Juggalos), or if it’s a states’ rights issue. Either way, fucktards will be fucktards, Juggalo or not. :)

    Hopping up and down?!?!?! A MOTERCYCLE SWERVING THROUGH TRAFFIC!?!?!

    An unrelated rant but cops think everything is suspicious and will look for any excuse to justify an arrest or interaction. Not that he wasn’t an idiot, but bouncing while riding is hardly a red flag and doesn’t need to be mentioned. He had no plates and crashed a bike recklessly, nuff said. Who cares if he is fidgety or what band he likes? But oh no, we have to assume these personal details are why he did this. It’s not that an average person crashed a bike, it was a juggalo who didn’t have a job and likes to bounce up and down! The scourge of society!

    Once I got pulled over and the cop asked where we were going. I was honest and said we were just going out for a drive, listening to music and he thought it was the most suspicious shit ever. “Who just drives for no reason?? Where are you coming from??? Where are you really going?? How much have you had to drink tonight???”

    Another time my girlfriend and I were just laying down on the grass about 10 feet from the highway. Cop pulls up, asks for ID, “why the fuck are you laying down next to a road? Are you on drugs? I would never do this, therefore anybody who does must be commiting crimes! When will citizens learn to just work, shop, then go straight home!? We can’t have people laying down on public property! If you’re gonna lie down outside, you better be paying somebody and supporting the economy or you’re likely a criminal!”.

    Cops are taught to analyse every possible uncommon action as potential criminal behavior and it’s fucking wack. Their dick head “guilty untill proven innocent” attitude makes people not want to talk to them, but if you don’t talk to them, then that’s suspicious too. It’s a vicious cycle of cops constantly being suspicious of citizens (especially those in poverty) and people not trusting cops because they jump to conclusions and intimidate you till they get the answer they want.

    Yeah sometimes they get lucky with their suspicions and there are some cool cops who don’t make mountains out of mole hills, but the system overall is completely flawed and is in need of some major reform.

    You all realize that it is still up to states to determine gangs for themselves yeah? The federal list is kaput for us but the damage has been done. We are technically not a gang in Indiana but where I come from in Northwest Indiana most juggalos are the stereotypical criminal juggalo that outsiders think we are and all the cops are well aware of this so if they are looking for someone who’s classified as a juggalo and they see you rockin shit they will stop you and ask if you know anything about whoever they are looking for. There’s one particular Fed that works the area that is super familiar with all logos and facepaint so even if its a plain abk logo shirt he is on point with it. Been questioned a few times while visiting family there in the past but he could tell I wasn’t one of the scummy fuckers he was looking for thankfully.

    In Illinois I am listed as a member of the Juggalo Holocaust because I was drunk as shit and told them I pose as a juggalo to get close to them and then rip them off of anything worth my time like electronics and jerseys because I know I can resell it quickly. That was a fun night with the cops.

    That’s why you stay on the EAST SIDE of Washington. Fuck the west side, western Washington and western Oregon should become a state and eastern Washington and eastern Oregon can become there own state.

    If they’re using the “gang list” this individual should contact the ACLU.
