Why Juggalos are labeled a gang – Police explain

Police explain why juggalos can be gang members of the juggalo gang – a lovely warning to all those juggalos who think they are not in a gang.

“We do a two-tier system,” Walker said. The first part of the system is that of state-mandated criteria, which the detective said was very broad. The other is the 10-point system, which assigns points to a person who shows possible gang affiliation.

Those points include a statement from a person identifying him or herself as a member. The detective said many members are proud of the affiliation and will state that they are members.

“That’s an automatic 10 points,” Walker said.

Other criteria would be the use of symbols, like the logo on the back of a Hell’s Angels’ vest. He said only members can receive and wear the symbols, adding that the use of the symbol is an automatic 10 points.

Other items could be tattoos that are gang specific, felony criminal history, wearing specific colors, graffiti and hand signs or confirmation from another law enforcement gang-certified agency.

With Fritts, he said in determining he was an ICP gang member and not just a fan, he relied on journal writings Fritts made, tattoos, clothing and information about him hanging out at West Town Mall and being banned from the property.

A journal Fritts and his wife each wrote in, which was placed into evidence earlier, had lyrics such as “murder, bloody murder baby, not a damn thing you can do,” which was under the title “Prep School Murders,” and had at least one reference to an ax. Forensic pathologist Adele Lewis testified last week that Teresa Busler died from injuries caused by a sharp, blunt force, possibly from a hatchet.

Defense attorney Mart Cizek, who represents Fritts, questioned Walker about how the band uses its symbols and logos on clothing similar to college’s sports memorabilia.

Walker said some gangs also use the same colors, such as Notre Dame’s colors, which are also used by the Gangster Disciple National.

Cizek showed Walker several ICP products he purchased at West Town Mall that all depicted the band’s album’s recording logo, which is the Running Hatchet Man, and asked if gang members wear flip flops. He showed him a wallet, shirt and flip flops with the label.

“Yes,” the detective said.

“While committing crimes?” Cizek asked.

“Yes, they actually do,” the detective replied.

During the detective’s testimony, Fritts, at the direction of Assistant District Attorney Sandra Donaghy, showed the jury his two tattoos, which are each allegedly associated with ICP. On his left shoulder, Fritts has a tattoo that reads “Juggalo for Life” and has the Running Hatchet Man logo on his right arm. When arrested, Fritts was wearing an ICP hoodie, which also had a logo and the words “Get Your Wicked On.”

The 6 Trials of a Juggalo gang member – 6 Jokers Cards


Looks like juggalos have 6 trials or 6 jokers cards and they play a part in the juggalo gang

Detective Sgt. Tom Walker, who testified Monday during Fritts’ first-degree murder trial, said the Insane Clown Posse is the name of both a rap/hip hop musical group and the members of a known gang in Knox County who follow the group. The ICP gang members follow the “six trials of clowns,” which are allegedly related to the group’s lyrics.

Walker said the difference between the general listener or fan and an ICP gang member is criminal behavior.

What Happens when a juggalo commits a crime – responses from juggalo


It’s a given that every time one of these news articles appears about juggalos involved in some murder or other violent crime, one of the first juggalo rebuttals is along the lines suggesting juggalos are simply fans, claiming that it is unfair to label them as a gang when so many other organized groups such as sports fans meet the same criteria…

This mindset only serves to demonstrate the ignorance of juggalos. Please show me the news stories about a sports fan club member or similar group violently murdering innocent victims in the manner juggalos have been involved with (I find comparison to law enforcement groups particularly amusing).

The simple fact is that juggalos are labeled as a gang because members identifying themselves as such are repeatedly involved in criminal activity with alarming frequency. This is direclty related to the iconolgy of this media attracting individuals with predispositions to violence or other antisocial behavior. Certainly, many people enjoy a good horror movie; but when an individual becomes so obsessed with this type of imagery, immersing themselves within it on a full time basis, that is a flag that person is mentally troubled.
