Seven inmates at the Larimer County jail, six of whom are known gang members, possibly face charges after a “large fight” broke out at the detention center Wednesday night.

Among the suspected participants is Adrian Rodarte, a Loveland man known to be a member of the Sureño gang, who pleaded guilty earlier this month to murder.

“Deputies believe that the release of several Sureños from the (detention center) precipitated the action on the part of the Norteños,” Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Eloise Campanella said in a statement. “Within moments, deputies on duty were able to quell the disturbance. No deputies were injured during the incident. However, the involved inmates received minor cuts, scrapes and bruises.”

The incident occurred in a general population area of the jail.

Campanella said at least one of the participants confirmed speculations that the motive for the fight was gang related.

In the statement, Cam-panella reported that Sheriff Jim Alderden is concerned the fight, along with three other incidents at the jail since Wednesday evening, are the result of overcrowding.

A capacity at the jail has been set at 460 due to a lack of funding, but Campanella said there were 503 inmates in the jail Friday. Some housing areas at the jail have been closed down because of budget restrictions.

“Alderden expressed complete confidence in his jail staff but is concerned about employee safety with increased level of violence at the Larimer County Detention Center due to the overcrowded conditions,” Campanella said.

When the fight occurred Wednesday, there were 499 inmates incarcerated and 59, or 12 percent, of those inmates were known gang members, according to Campanella.

The Sheriff’s Office reported that of the 59 incarcerated gang members, 19 are Sureño, 16 are Norteño, 14 are Juggalo, four are Aryan, one is Blood, five are Crips and 10 are affiliated with various other gangs.

Loveland police give rundown on gangs; Including Juggalos- 300 residents attend forum


Report Herald has the juggalo gang right on the money

http://www.reporterherald.com/news_story.asp?ID=27510

One group known for violence in other cities, although it is not a recognized gang in Colorado, are juggalos, or fans of hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse.

Although most fans of the music group don’t turn violent or become criminals, some juggalos have crossed the line and committed murders and other crimes mirroring the violent lyrics, police said.

Not everyone who wears red or blue or who listens to Insane Clown Posse is a gang member.

But gang members associated with those signs are committing crimes. Therefore, such clothing and tattoos are red flags that police look for.

Some Comments from concerned residents here

The article states that the Juggalos are “One group known for vilence in other cities …” It is right here in Loveland. The stabbing at N.Lake Park last summer was done by a Juggalo. Wake up Loveland – they are here and are violent! I think CO and other states should do as AZ and legally classify them as a gang. The news is full of killings by these gang members – do a search for yourself.

Doc, from the article, “Not everyone who wears red or blue or who listens to Insane Clown Posse is a gang member.” I was at the meeting and they made this very clear. However, they also stated that if your kids/grandkids, etc DO listen to ICP, they should be observed carefully, just to make sure they are fans of the band/music, and not crossing the line like some “juggalos” do and start acting out some of the very violent lyrics. BTW: Utah and Arizona DO legally classify Juggalos (fans of ICP) to be gang members.
It was a great meeting and I hope they will repeat this annually. If you missed it and are interested, the PD stated they’d be happy to make their presentation to your community/homeowners group, church, etc.
