Making that decision to become a juggalo – Youtube Comment

Making that decision to become a juggalo is like admitting that you’re incapable of functioning in normal society. But when you become a juggalette, it’s an even bolder decision. Not only are you unplugging from the real world, but you’ve also made the brave decision that juggalos represent an acceptable breeding pool.

El Reno suspect listened to violent music – Insane Clown Posse Music

EL RENO — The ex-convict accused of strangling his girlfriend and her four children is a fan of Insane Clown Posse, a rap/hip-hop duo known for profane lyrics about murder fantasies, necrophilia and violent acts.
with her death and the deaths of her four children, the…

They perform in concert as “wicked clowns,” wearing black and white clown makeup.
A line in one song, “Murda Cloak,” goes “I’m killing today to take this feeling away.”
The lyrics of another song, “Sleep Walker,” include the lines “Choke ’em. Kill ’em. And sleep right through the night.”

Josh Durcho, 25, is charged with five counts of first-degree murder in the deaths in El Reno. He listed ICP — short for Insane Clown Posse — as his only musical interest on the Web site MySpace.

On one arm he has tattooed the words “Wicked Clown’o.”

One criminology expert said violent lyrics can influence troubled young people who absorb themselves in the music.

“Would violent lyrics in and of itself push someone to violence? No,” said Kathleen Heide, a criminology professor at the University of South Florida and author of “Why Kids Kill Parents.”

“But if they … were angry … alienated … depressed … doing alcohol and drugs … have difficulty with feelings and they’re not successful with life, that absorption in negative themes … can provide the impetus,” she said.

Durcho was unemployed and has been in prison for marijuana.

The singers could not be reached for comment.

ICP fans are called “Juggalos” and “Juggalettes.” Fans have been implicated in other high-profile crimes across the country.

In North Carolina, four teenagers were accused last month of killing a friend in a bizarre case.

The teenagers allegedly read their friend his fortune with tarot cards, beat him in the head with a hammer and suffocated him with duct tape, according to news accounts. Those details mirror lyrics in Insane Clown Posse songs and one of the suspects identified himself on MySpace as a Juggalo.

In Utah, a man identified by police as a member of a Juggalo gang was found guilty last week of attempted murder. Police say he attacked a teenager with a medieval battle ax. Insane Clown Posse sells items depicting a stick figure with a hatchet.

newark juggalo fight

rumors are flying online about a newark juggalo fight involving 2 rival gangs of juggalos in Newark, NJ USA
more news as it breaks

Page 1
Date 07-06-06
This group (Juggalos) has recently surfaced… where they attacked 23 people in three separate attacks the week
of June 19th
. There were 7-8 men in their late 20s, claiming they were “Juggalos”. The victims were beaten
with sticks, threatened with a machete or robbed of cell phones, shoes, and wallets. ICP (Insane Clown Posse)
graffiti has also been present in the area… They are tagging, wearing black bandanas, and fighting with the
Surenos (Hispanic street gang). There have been fights, cross-outs of graffiti, and forcible taking of black
bandanas. In February 2006, an Insane Clown Posse follower, Jacob Robida, 18, used a hatchet and gun to
attack three patrons in a gay bar in New Bedford, Massachusetts, and then fled. He was later captured in
Arkansas after a 16-mile police chase, but during the capture, he killed his female passenger, then killed a
police officer. He was then shot by police and later died. Although this group has not yet been labeled as a
traditional “Street Gang” they are starting to commit crimes (as in above case) where they are claiming they are
Juggalos, which does constitute the labeling of a gang.
The Juggalos and Juggalettes (females) have a heavy presence on the East Coast and rapidly growing across the
US with members in the thousands. They are followers with a true addiction to the Insane Clown Posse (one of
the most hated bands in the world) and have based an entire life style around them. They do not jump in to a
gang, but they are very dedicated to the Insane Clown Posse and each other. They claim no violence, but this is
not true
. The make-up of this group is mainly Caucasian. They have lines of clothing, jewelry, paraphernalia,
etc. Most that claim Juggalo or Juggalette will have tattoos. They also follow other bands such as the Dark
Lotus, Twiztid, Anybody Killa, Jumpsteady, Psychopatic Rydas, etc. These are all violent, sinister and vulgar
rap/rock groups. The Insane Clown Posse began in the early 90s out of Detroit, giving themselves the identity of
clowns to better fit in while preaching the messages of the “Dark Carnival.” The Juggalos can be identified by
heavy clown make-up (sadistic wicked-type faces and jester style), tattoos, clothing, and specific music
possessions. The hatchet man (tattoo above) is the most common tattoo as it is the symbol of the Insane Clown
Posse record label, “Psychopathic Records”. The hatchet can be seen in numerous colors. They also tattoo other
music groups they follow – “ICP”, “Dark Lotus” (tattoo above), etc., along with many other types of tattoos.
They wear dark clothing, but do like to also dress in bright clown colors, dye their hair in bright colors, and
wear Mohawks. They like to stand out and be noticed. They tag areas with “ICP”, “Dark Lotus”, etc. They also
have their own hand signs.
Excerpt from internet: “A Juggalo is someone who doesn’t give a f_ _k what people think about them. They have
entered the world of the Dark Carnival and Insane Clown Posse because they themselves have been considered clowns,
buffoons, idiots, and freaks. Being a Juggalo reflects an entire lifestyle and state of mind… it is something that is
impossible to define, even for a Juggalo. To understand what a Juggalo is, you must truly be a Juggalo.”
There is an ongoing dispute with the Insane Clown Posse and Eminem – you may see reference to him in
graffiti and tattoos. The ICP also references the “Dark Carnival” in their lyrics, which to all Juggalos is
“GOD.” It is the ultimate heaven for Juggalos, “where they will experience paradise and never have to worry.

Members of the Juggalo and Insane clown posse arrested

juggalo gang keeps getting more rampant
look at this article , they have no respect for the legal system and would hiss at a judge after going to a court in some ratty hatchet gear.

4 admit to charges in Modesto assault case

One Juggalos defendant to serve 7 years in prison

The Modesto Bee

MODESTO — Four followers of the band Insane Clown Posse admitted in court Monday to acting as members of a criminal street gang that police call Juggalos when they assaulted a man strolling with his daughters through Graceada Park a year ago.

Brandon Ferrell, 19, Kurt Petersen, 23, and Larry Williams, 20, pleaded no contest to a felony charge of assault likely to produce great bodily injury in addition to a gang enhancement. Joshua Huggins, 18, pleaded guilty to the same charge and enhancement.

A judge sentenced Williams, who has a previous conviction under the state’s “three strikes” law, to seven years in state prison.

Petersen, Ferrell and Huggins each got a year in county jail. Ferrell and Huggins were expected to be released from jail Monday because they have served their time. Petersen still must serve several months of his 365-day sentence.

All four waived their right to appeal their convictions.

“For me, it wasn’t an easy call,” Deputy District Attorney Marlisa Ferreira said of offering the plea deal. “The defendants were very young, but (the victim) was critically injured. In the end, I think justice was served.” Monday morning, the courtroom gallery was filled with young people, some in Insane Clown Posse clothing. A few hissed and scoffed as victim William August, 54, called Juggalos “dangerous, malevolent gangbangers” and detailed the pain he’s been through since the March 7, 2009, attack.

“The injuries I sustained in the mob attack were grievous,” August said, after limping to the front of the courtroom to address Judge Nancy Ashley. “I’ll never walk normally again.” August, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall, said he tried to do the right thing by walking away but fears what he might do if attacked again.

Ferreira acknowledged that not all people who listen to Insane Clown Posse are gang members. But she said the men are more than fans of the band, whose lyrics are so raw they wouldn’t be heard on mainstream radio, because they travel in a pack, share a common sign or symbol — the cartoon hatchet man associated with the Detroit-based band — and commit crimes.

Defense attorneys said their clients are just young men who got drunk and behaved badly.

Ferrell, Huggins and Petersen each could face seven to 10 years in prison if they violate the terms of their felony probation.

justice for all

Syko Sam – a member of the juggalo gang

By Wayne Drash

(CNN) — Elizabeth McCutchen and a friend were walking to book club two weeks ago in quaint Farmville, Virginia, when they strolled by a home on First Avenue. “Something smells dead,” her friend said.
Richard Samuel McCroskey has been arrested in connection with the killings of four people in Virginia.

Richard Samuel McCroskey has been arrested in connection with the killings of four people in Virginia.

They were thinking animal. A dog, a cat, something like that. They never imagined they were smelling the remains of massacred humans. It was Thursday, September 17. But another 24 hours would pass before police made the gruesome discovery.

Richard Samuel McCroskey III — a 20-year-old rapper in the underground genre of “Horrorcore” who sang of chopping people into pieces — has been arrested in connection with the slayings. The crime scene was so horrifying police would not even describe it, saying only that the victims died of blunt force trauma.

The victims were Mark Niederbrock, 50, the beloved pastor at Walker’s Presbyterian Church; his 16-year-old daughter, Emma Niederbrock; Melanie Wells, Emma’s 18-year-old friend from West Virginia; and Niederbrock’s estranged wife, Debra Kelley, 53, a professor at Longwood University.

McCroskey has been charged only in the killing of Mark Niederbrock. Police and the prosecutor’s office did not return repeated phone calls from CNN. But in late September, authorities said more charges are pending.

Emma was described as a fan of Horrorcore and had met McCroskey through their mutual affection for the little-known music genre. Police said she invited McCroskey to fly from his northern California home, stay with her in Virginia and then attend the Strictly for the Wicked Festival, a Horrorcore fest in Michigan featuring bands with names like Dismembered Fetus and Phrozen Body Boy.

Nobody saw what would come next.

The slayings have been the talk of Farmville, a town of 7,000 that is home to Longwood University and nearby Hampden-Sydney College. Senseless is the word you hear most.

It’s not just the macabre nature of the killings that has people talking. It’s the grotesque lyrics of the Horrorcore singer; it’s that it happened under their noses.

McCroskey is a young man with no criminal record who took delight in the blend of horror hip-hop that celebrated macabre killings. He went by the name Syko Sam. In one YouTube video, he holds a hatchet and sings about killing people and putting their remains in black bags: “Last night I was the murderous rage. Now, I gotta get rid of the bodies before the corpses start to get to rotting.”

‘Stinkiest rascal I’ve ever smelled’

Authorities have not specified when the Virginia killings occurred, but at 4 a.m. on Friday, September 18, tow-truck driver Elton Napier was called out to Poor House Road to help McCroskey, whose car was stuck.

Napier said McCroskey was wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt and “was really smelling bad, like real bad. I can’t describe it.”

McCroskey was driving Mark Niederbrock’s Honda. Napier said two sheriff’s deputies were at the scene and McCroskey was ticketed for driving without a license. At the time, authorities didn’t know the pastor had been slain.

When McCroskey hopped into Napier’s flatbed, the tow-truck driver said he started gagging from the odor and immediately rolled down the windows.

“I just held my head out the window so the wind would hit me in the face,” he said. “That was the stinkiest rascal I’ve ever smelled.”

Napier drove McCroskey about four miles to a convenience store. McCroskey told Napier he was visiting his girlfriend and her father lent him the car. McCroskey fetched a black bag from the Honda before they parted. Napier went inside to get a cup of coffee.

According to police, McCroskey eventually caught a cab to Richmond International Airport. By mid-afternoon that same day, police found the bodies at the home on First Avenue. McCroskey was arrested the next day at the airport, where he had spent the night.

When he was being led to jail, McCroskey told reporters, “Jesus told me to do it.”

Suspect’s family, community grieve

Sarah McCroskey of California told CNN-affiliate WWBT that her brother had been looking forward to his visit to Virginia for weeks. She mourned his arrest and struggled with the accusations against him. “I want to hear his voice. I am so concerned, so worried — not just for him [but] other people, other families involved dealing with this loss,” she said. Read WWBT’s special coverage

Defense attorney Cary Bowen told CNN, “I don’t want to say he’s in shock. That’s a medical term, but it’s a big experience for him. … I’m not sure he gets the severity of everything right now.”

The community is still devastated by the events as it struggles to move forward. Memorial services were held over the weekend for Emma Niederbrock and her mother, Debra Kelley.

The Rev. Sylvia Meadows of Farmville United Methodist Church baptized Emma at age 5 and her father when he was an adult. The pastor said the church has invited an occult specialist to speak with members of the community to help them come to grips with the dark side of humanity.

“We have looked evil in the face and cannot deny that it exists,” Meadows said. “God is stronger than evil. God is bigger.”

Luther Glenn, a member of Walker’s Presbyterian Church where Niederbrock was pastor, took issue with McCroskey’s comment about Jesus telling him to act. “I think it’s deeply rooted in Satan, if you want to know the truth.”

Elizabeth McCutchen, who passed the First Avenue home some time after the slayings, said the killings have affected every fabric of the community: the churches, the colleges, and their youth.

“This is the kind of town that goes to the rescue of survivors, but there’s nobody

— we can’t do anything about it,” she said.

“It’s been really, really upsetting.”

Steel Eyed Death – Juggalos on Law and Order Review
Here is my review of the latest law and order epp
i think it accurately sums up all juggalos and exposes the truth of the music and environment juggalos thrive in .

the Criminal Justice System the people are represented by two separate,
yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime and the
District Attorneys who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

don’t understand how they can walk around like that” – opens the
episode about juggalo crimes and the juggalo gang of law and order
steel eyed death.

The concerned mother tells her daughter Zoe, a juggalette to stop banging against the wall.

The next day we see juggalette Zoe slit her throat, her dad stabbed, blood on the wall,
The mom also attacked in what in a ways seems to have come out of 90% of the songs in the insane clown posse’s catalog.

A little Baby is killed with the words syco on the wall, juggalos gone wild and it’s the first minute of the ep.

We find the murdered girls room, drugs and what looks like faygos.
juggalette has been tramp stamped, black lipstick, nail polish, condoms
and chains in her bag, all that’s missing is face paint and you got
typical juggalette gear.

The angle tattoo tramp stamp was
missing a devil stabbing an angel, sort of like icps song lyrics – were
not sorry if we tricked you.

Some pimp is found dead with a knife, should have been a hatchet to be more authentic, however a juggalo committed the crime.

However they find 2 ticket stubs to the horrorcore fest at the red bar… you know what we are going find here JUGGALOS….

man , juggalos all look alike to me” responds the bar owner which not
only shows the criminals after in this epp but also the so called
uniqueness that juggalos claim to have is non existent to the general
public.  OWNED


“That’s what those horrorcore rap physcos call themselves, they put on clown makeup, dye their hair, Freaks Man”

“Matter of opinion”

“Matter of fact, their music’s all about how much they hate everybody, and what their going to do about it “

play kid zombie or Kid Crusher whatever who got butt hurt about it,
should of not sold his song if he didn’t want it used..way to sell out
the juggalo fam whoop whoop.

“You cater to this crowd ?”
“their not that popular , we book a few shows each year “

So where do the juggalos hang out
“In front of their computers , their losers”

A killers who’s looking for inspiration , this would be the place……
It turns the juggalos have been murdering people and posting their crimes on the internet

find crazy j the murder has been posting on a anime and comic book site
– which looks and sounds like Gaia online with juggalo hang outs  like
the ~The Gaia Juggalo Gathering~ guild .

of the cops goes into a stair well is attacked by a hatchet wielding
juggalo all painted up , who he quickly puts into a wall – violent j
and shaggy would be proud as this sounds exactly like the stuff talked
about in the song my axe is my buddy.

We now find bonnie , a juggalette trying to kill a little black girl – Racist juggalo .
She then tries to kill her self.

take the juggalo to the precinct , he still has most his paint on and
is about to cry and starts yelling to screw the police , screw the
morgans , and screw all 53 states. Note to juggalos there are currently
52 states….. stay in school whoop whoop

The girl fakes memory loss and now is in a mental asylum ,she nearly looks human with out her juggalo get up …
Now after the juggalo music is taken away from her she claims “I don’t want to hurt you , that’s wrong”
She had a life and it all was ruined as she liked “horrorcore music and violence”
And they find her parents , who are shocked at her juggalo appearance in a photo.

Her parents then lie to protect Amanda and her juggalo ways in court.

“please mr cutter , there’s something wrong with my daughter , I know it“ yep she’s a juggalette .

“the hatchet was cleaned with bleach , we cant tie him to murder scenes“
I wonder what icp song told him to do that .

What made the murderer and juggalo snap “maybe his mother threw away his comic book collection” .

met zoe on this horrorcore message board , he got really mad , he took
out a knife and started stabbing her , he went and got this hatchet
that he keeps in his back pack , he went crazy on zoes dad , he killed
zoes mom then I told just where his brother was hiding , Justin killed

Not only did Justin juggalo commit murders but he took photos to put up online .

juggalos mom tries to blame 9/11 on causing her son to wet the bed and
become a juggalo. His musical tastes were death metal then moved to

Justin juggalo Was  a good student who never aroused suspicion aka sleeper cell juggalos.

a sub plot of the 2 detectives with one having blood on his shirt and
he got drunk and him having post traumatic stress disorder and not
committing crimes which is used against juggalo Justin who gets 30 to
life for his juggalo ways .

So big ups to Dick Wolf for his
excellent and accurate analysis of juggalos and juggalo crimes and the
evils of horrorcore music especially that of the Insane clown Posse –
This was based on real life murders by Syco Sam . A horrorcore fan and
member of the juggalo family.
