ICP fans exact Gang and street justice on suspected thief – and his car


CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. — The Juggalos served up a shot of vigilante justice Saturday.

It was a moment that even veteran festival-goers described as shocking: hordes of fans destroying the car of a suspected thief at Insane Clown Posse’s Gathering of the Juggalos.

With cheers and chants of “FA-MI-LY,” the charged-up mob ultimately lifted the stripped Grand Am onto a Uhaul trailer and carted it half a mile to the festival’s main stage, where security demanded they tow it backstage.

Hours earlier, the suspected thief had been chased off the fest site by a posse of more than 50 fans.

“We police our own,” said an Ohio fan who called herself Red.

It all had started Friday night when a Michigan couple – identifying themselves as 23-year-old Angelina and 24-year-old Marty – arrived at their campsite to find their tent ransacked. As they later recounted to the Free Press, a fellow camper fingered the unidentified Ohio man as the culprit.

On Saturday morning the Michigan couple entered the suspect’s Grand Am only to find he’d removed the trunk release button. They said they opened the trunk by hotwiring it, finding their stuff among a batch of goods stolen from other Juggalos, including shoes, shorts, electronics, jewelry and bottles of medicine.

“We started smashing the front window,” said Angelina.

Others soon joined in, and within hours the car was an empty, dented hulk. Juggalos could be spotted parading pieces – bumpers, doors, engine parts – around the Gathering site.

At one point the suspected thief was spotted nearby. Dozens of fans set after him, chasing him to the festival exit, where security staffers stopped the mob.

“We’re family,” said an Arkansas fan who said he helped lead the chase. “You don’t steal from your family.”

The fate of the car, thief and vigilantes was unclear Saturday evening, day four of the 13th annual Gathering, which has drawn more than 8,000 fans of Detroit’s ICP to southern Illinois.

“I was there when they threw things at Tila Tequila (in 2010), and even I’m more shocked at this,” said Red, the Ohio fan. “We’re not usually this feral.

But dude – don’t steal.”

  1. How is this gang related?

    Is this site condoning stealing someone’s heart medication and food from a pregnant woman?

    HAHAHAHAH
    WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING AS A PREGNANT WOMAN WITH HEART MEDICINE AT GOTJ
    YOUR KID IS GOING TO HAVE MEDICAL ISSUES.

  3. I was six months pregnant at GOTJ 2011. Granted I don’t requier heart meds, I think it’s fine as long as yo,u the individua, are responsible about your condition/situation. On the plus side they say walking is good for the baby, and there is a lot of walking.

  4. The heart medication and the pregnant woman are unrelated subjects. I was 6 months pregnant at GOTJ 2011. It’s all about responsibility; As long as the Juggalette is fully aware of her situation/condition there is no problem. Plus, they say walking is good for both the baby and the mother, Whoop Whoop to the Juggalette Mothers! MWCL forever and always.

  5. first off, none of your business. if someone with medical issues wishes to attend a concert that doesnt concern you in the least. second, who would condone stealing period? even though you dont like us, is it still right to steal from us? get real. i have numerous friends (who arent even juggalos) that would curb stomp someone for stealing from me. next you guys will claim friendship being a gang. goddamn.

  6. i think he got what he deserved, you dont steal from juggalos and claim that your family.

  7. If your a Lo or lette that needs a website without all the fighting going on, go to my website: https://sites.google.com/site/wearethejuggalosandjuggalettes/home
