Police took a juggalo gang member into custody Monday afternoon after a tense, 3-hour standoff outside the Kiss 108 radio studios in Medford, Massachusetts.
The juggalo – who police have identified as 38-year-old Richard Newton – was quickly handcuffed by officers around 4:30 p.m. after emerging with his hands up from a car that had been surrounded by police vehicles. He was taken away on a stretcher.

A witness told NBC Boston the man came to the area before 1:30 p.m. and asked where the iHeart radio section of the building was. He went into the building and approached a secretary. He requested that they play the song “My Axe” by Insane Clown Posse and displayed a large ax.
The juggalo gang member then returned to his vehicle, by which time police had arrived. He rammed a police vehicle, and then threw the axe out of the window, but it did not hit anyone.

The witness said the man had several knives inside the car and was also seen drinking beer in the car.
Police continued to negotiate with him by cell phone and through the car window. At one point, he got out of the vehicle and said “I guess you’re just going to have to kill me.” Police attempted to Taser him, but he was able to get back in the car.
DC MARCH CONCERT CANCELLED DUE TO COP PRESSURE
WRITTEN ON 01 MARCH 2017.
The free concert scheduled to follow the Juggalo March in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, September 16, 2017 will not happen due to the Prince William County Sheriff’s Department expressing “concerns” about Juggalos coming to the area where the event was originally to be held.
Psychopathic Records is currently examining its options and has contacted the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia requesting their assistance in this matter. It is Psychopathic Records’ full intent that a free concert will still take place following the Juggalo March, which is scheduled for noon in the National Mall.
Today, Psychopathic Records released this statement concerning the unwarranted cancellation of the concert:
“Here’s the simple fact: A law enforcement agency has told thousands and thousands of people that they are not welcome in their community simply because they identify as Juggalos, which is a music-based subculture and nothing more. And this PRECISELY reflects the purpose of the Juggalo March – to call attention to the kind of casual discrimination, profiling, and bigotry that Juggalos face every day throughout these United States. This is why we are marching and also why we are calling upon fellow music artists, social activists, and public servants to join us at the March – because the basic civil liberties of thousands of taxpaying American citizens are being abused…simply because they listen to a certain type of music. To our Juggalo brothers and sisters, rest assured we are looking into all options to ensure a free concert following the Juggalo March on September 16 goes on as planned. Stay strong and remember…we are family, NOT a gang or public menace and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!”

Two men Fresno police say are members of the Juggalo street gang face felony firearms charges in separate cases.
The Juggalos are fans of the music group Insane Clown Posse and sometimes wear face paint and clothing with an emblem of a running man carrying a hatchet. In 2011, the FBI designated them a “loosely organized hybrid gang” that commits assaults and vandalism. That prompted the Insane Clown Posse members Joseph Bruce (Violent J) and Joseph Utsler (Shaggy 2 Dope) to file a lawsuit against the FBI, according to Law Enforcement Today. A judge dismissed the suit in 2014.
Fresno police Lt. Burke Farrah of the Street Violence Section said Juggalos are not major players among local gangs. The gun charges the two men face arose out of “interpersonal disputes,” he said.
Police say Daniel Casanova, 30, was arrested on suspicion of cutting a man across the face in August and then firing a handgun at a relative of the victim who was chasing him. Casanova was arrested last month and is charged with assault with a firearm.
Joseph Thomas, 26, is accused of a shooting Nov. 1 near a market at Fruit and Dakota avenues following a dispute with another gang member. He was arrested the following day on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Farrah said Juggalo gang members have kept a low profile for the past several years. At one time, members would gather at Cary Park near Fashion Fair mall. Juggalos also would sometimes be seen at Eaton Plaza in downtown Fresno. They no longer have a defined area in the city.
The Juggalos were designated by police as a street gang in the mid-2000s. To fit the legal definition of a gang, a group must have at least three members who use a common name, sign or symbol and commit crimes. For an individual to be designated a gang member, there are additional criteria, including tattoos, and how he or she self-identifies when booked in Fresno County Jail.
A Winlock man who recently pleaded guilty to shooting his ex-girlfriend in the back on July 18 near Winolequa Park was sentenced to more than 18 years in prison Wednesday.
Joseph M. Lowery, 20, pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree attempted murder in the shooting. His sentencing was scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. The hearing had been rescheduled for 9 a.m. Oct. 1, but was rescheduled again for later in the day Wednesday.
Lowery was sentenced to 220 months, or just over 18 years, in prison with credit for 59 days served. He was also ordered to have no contact with the woman he is accused of shooting after his release.
According to court documents, Lowery shot the woman because she disrespected “the Juggalo family.”
The term “Juggalo” primarily refers to fans of the music group Insane Clown Posse. Law enforcement agencies consider some Juggalo organizations to be gangs.
A 16-year-old Centralia boy was also arrested after the shooting. He was charged in juvenile court with unlawful possession of a firearm and tampering with evidence.
The attack happened at 4:30 a.m.
Nightmares can come true: a woman in North Carolina told police she was attacked in her home by an ax-wielding clown.
The victim told the police in Hickory, N.C. that a person wearing a clown mask and a multicolored wig had come by her residence at 4:30 a.m. Friday morning and began to swing his ax at her.
The victim was able to take the mask off the attacker and discover that it was an acquaintance of hers, who then fled the scene. She was not injured in the incident.
Hickory Police Department spokesperson Chrystal Dieter told TIME that there was an “outstanding warrant” against the suspect.
“Any law enforcement officer who comes in contact with the suspect in question will have full ability to arrest him,” Dieter said.
Dieter could not recall any previous cases of attackers masquerading as clowns. But the Hickory attacker would not be the first person to draw on the cultural image of the “creepy clown.” The town of Northampton, England has previously reported sightings of an individual dressed as the clown who roamed the streets and scared citizens.
A US district court has reaffirmed the FBI’s decision to classify Juggalos—fans of the Insane Clown Posse music group—as a gang. The federal law enforcement agency has considered the followers gang members since at least 2011, when a report revealing the classification was leaked. The band reacted the way any violent gang leader would: by filing a lawsuit. RT’s Lindsay France takes a look at the court’s decision.
Over 30 confirmed juggalo gang memebers

FBI and Local Police both agree Juggalos are a gang.
This is too good.
For my entire life, when I’ve met new people and arrived at the point in the relationship where we find ourselves talking about our fears, I’ve come away feeling disappointed. Why? Well, here is a list of legitimate fears: attack dogs, STD tests, that heartbeat moment when you Snapchat your junk to someone and their name begins with the same letter as someone in your family, your house burning down in the night.
Nowhere on that list is the word clowns, because for a long time, being scared of clowns has been the most bullshit fear on Earth. It’s a fear adopted by teenagers who don’t know any better to make them seem interesting by association. It’s a fear sprung from seeing a picture of Pennywise from Stephen King’s It and thinking, Yeah, that seems like a cool fear.
But now I’m starting to think that the clown fearers might have a point, because gangs of young men have been marauding around France dressed as clowns chasing innocent bystanders with pistols, poles, knives, and bats.
Juggalos seem to be overlly excited because ICP said Juggalos aint a gang… But what they really said was very open ended.
Juggalos are no longer on gang list, FBI admitted they never meant to add all Juggalos. However the FBI does keep an unofficial record that we could very much still be on. – Juggalos still on a gang list.
Appeal ruling about gang list could be announced within a few month. If they don’t win appeal next step is Supreme Court. If that happens ICP organizing march in Washington with free show at the end. Although we are not on the list, the case does have to do with the included juggalos who were discriminated against. – The court case is still running.
