Hey Juggalos—Law enforcement can throw more than just the book at you, you could be denied the ability to serve the country, and in general still be considered a member of a violent gang … that’s after a federal judge tossed out a case from the Insane Clown Posse and the ACLU Tuesday. ICP said a 2011 FBI report sent out to law enforcement around the country included their fan base as violent gang members. They said that violates Juggalos' free speech and due process rights. How is being on an FBI list as a violent gang bad for ICP fans? Well, if someone got a hatchet man tattoo when they were younger and then later in life were picked up for a petty drug offense, they could be deemed a violent gang member and given stiffer charges … just because of the tattoo. ICP says it also has the potential of cutting down on their fan base, and in turn their livelihood. The ACLU says they will appeal the decision to toss the challenge out. We’ll keep you posted.

Nails soothes baby

But the moment Nine Inch Nails’ “Copy of A” begins, the crying stops and you can see the power of the music wash over the child. It’s actually quite fascinating to see the child’s first experience with the music of Nails.
