NELSON Some other Ohio town will be feeling clown love as the Gathering of the Juggalos, held in Portage Co
past three years, will not return to Nelson Ledges Quarry Park in 2006.
The Gathering made Nelson its home for three years, starting in 2003. However, Quarry Park owner Evan Kelley
Friday that Psychopathic Records, Insane Clown Posse and their fans, the Juggalos, have not been invited back
Rumors about the change began to fly shortly after the 2005 Gathering, when ICPs Violent J said on a
Juggalo Web site that the group was looking to take the 2006 Gathering elsewhere.
More recently, Violent J wrote on http://www.insaneclownposse.com that the 2006 Gathering will be held in a secret,
location near Columbus, Ohio, a move confirmed Friday by attorney Marc Beginin of Detroit, who represented
Psychopathic during the past two gatherings. Beginin had no other official comment.
Kelley said that for three years, the majority of the Juggalos were respectful and friendly, but the mood and actions changed quickly and violently
over time.
The first year was not bad. The second year was questionable, but I thought Well, lets try a third year and see how
And the third year was terrible, just awful, Kelley said, referring to the five-day festival held July 21-25, 2005
Kelley said Psychopathic Records broke some of the rules set down for the 2005 event, including blasting music long into the night.
Neighbors were calling, livid at four in the morning regarding loud music, he said. I was really upset with that, it was
flagrant disrespect to the community and myself. I voiced my opinion that I really didnt want it back, so they looked
elsewhere.
Drugs, alcohol, nudity, profanity and trash also became serious problems, he said.
But the bad side of this group really hurt the few good kids.
The 2005 Gathering of the Juggalos was the sixth such event, and the fourth in Ohio. Previous gatherings were h
Peoria, Ill., where Juggalos clashed with police, and Toledo, where a similar situation unfolded. For three years,
County spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours corralling the Juggalos inside Quarry Park. In 2005 the promoters sued Psychopathic to recoup police overtime costs.

Kelley, who said the park now will focus more on swimming and camping, said he expects a mixed reaction to the Juggalos departure.
The neighbors will be happy, he said.
It was good and bad, but after the third year it turned a little sour.
We used it (the Gathering) as an opportunity to really better this place, Kelley said. Now its time to cut those guys.

Prosecutor says suspect in attack part of alleged Juggalos gang



STOCKTON – You’ve heard of the Bloods and Crips, Norteños and Sureños – reviled criminal street gangs known for violent turf wars, graffiti and drugs sales.

But the Juggalos?

While there is no universal agreement, law enforcement officials across the country have begun to tag them as an emerging gang.

Now, the Juggalos, who style themselves after a Detroit-based rap-rock group, are up to no good in Stockton, according to a local prosecutor. He believes one man’s status in the gang played a role in an attempted hatchet murder.

San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Mark Ott – on top of the attempted murder count – has charged Chad Campbell, 21, with a street terrorism for his ties to the alleged gang.

Ott, who offers few details of the case, said that Monday, he will lay out evidence in court and let a judge decide if Campbell goes on to a jury trial.

Ott believes Campbell would be the first Juggalo to be tried in San Joaquin County.

“We believe we have the facts to prove it,” Ott said.

Juggalos – or Juggalettes for women – are devotees of a rock-rap group based in Detroit called Insane Clown Posse. The music group indulges in raw lyrics replete with irreverent profanity and violence.

The group’s fans – mostly white – wear heavy face paint to resemble sinister clowns. The consider themselves a family. The Juggalos’ uniting symbol is a hatchet man, the insignia of the rap group’s recording label, Psychopathic Records.

Representatives of Psychopathic Records and Insane Clown Posse did not respond to requests for comment.

Police in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Utah have arrested people on gang charges for committing crimes on behalf of the Juggalos. A Modesto judge last year ordered four people to stand trial following a violent attack linked to the so-called gang at Graceada Park.

Campbell was arrested Nov. 8 in Stockton after police said he attacked a man near El Dorado and California streets with a hatchet. The 21-year-old victim was taken to a hospital with serious injuries to his head.

The man survived the attack, but prosecutors also charged Campbell with mayhem for permanently disabling the victim, said Ott. The prosecutor said he believes the law is on his side, especially when it comes to the gang charge.

Ott wouldn’t say if Campbell was dressed in Juggalo clothing, has tattoos or wore a painted face during the alleged attack. He prefers to present his evidence in court.

But Ott explained that a criminal street gang by definition is an ongoing association of three or more people with a common sign who actively engage in criminal behavior.

“We have that pattern,” Ott said. “We’re going to put that on in the preliminary hearing.”

Contacted at the San Joaquin County Jail, Campbell declined a request for an interview. His attorney, San Joaquin County Deputy Public Defender Michael Moore, did not return repeated calls.
