As the days turn to weeks and the signatures blast past the half way margin I find myself in an excited stage of panic. The end is drawing near to the battle but, the war has yet to begin. Once 10,000 signatures has been reached it will be like bringing knives to a gun fight and we unfortunately are holding the knives. But, aren’t the “weakest” usually the strongest when it comes down to the battle between good and evil? In a world that relies on balance, good will slay the evil that lies within a group called the Juggalo Holocaust. A wretched group of haters that wish to bring total demise to our culture and they accomplished part of their plan. Their barbaric manner of claiming our name must come to an end, for we are not the cheats, thieves, and murderers they make us out to be. No, we are the people of the Hatchetman Culture, the men and women, the Juggalos and Juggalettes that empower our faith in what we call Family.

Being a Juggalo or Juggalette does not mean that you are a gang member. It does not mean that you go out and commit violent acts against another person. It means that you are a person that follows the belief in doing good throughout your life. Some believe that it is truly the path to Shangri-La, a paradise in the after world. This does not mean that Juggaloism is a religion. We do not follow the guidelines to be a recognized religion but, we do follow the guidelines to be a culture. A subculture to the American culture if you would like to get technical. But, being a Jugglo/Lette means so much more. It means that you are part of what we call, Family. Within this Family you are welcome regardless of your age, ethnicity, race, or sex. Disabilities also do not hinder a person from being accepted into the Family. All are welcome to join as long as they understand that the Dark Carnival is not about death, it is about life.

It is with all my heart that I hope all the people of our fine culture be free to express their beliefs without threat of legal punishment by their own government. I hope that with the petition and all those that are joining to fight this cause, can win. I wish you all the best. MMFWCL

Sincerely,

The Lette Pandabare

It is in our darkest hour that we find the light. An escape from the horrors that plaque our lives and a union between us is able to be born. That is why I have started Juggalos Against Discrimination with a few very close Fam. We are on the edge of a new era, not only as a culture but, as a species. Our economy is failing, our morale is dropping, and our beliefs are under attack. This is why we must make our voice heard. No longer can we lie in wait and hope the storm will pass us by. The demons are now upon us and knocking on our door..

According to the F.B.I. all Juggalos are now considered as gang members, as listed on their National Gang Threat Assessment:

Juggalos

The Juggalos, a loosely-organized hybrid gang, are rapidly expanding into many US communities. Although recognized as a gang in only four states, many Juggalos subsets exhibit gang-like behavior and engage in criminal activity and violence. Law enforcement officials in at least 21 states have identified criminal Juggalo sub-sets, according to NGIC reporting.

d. Juggalos are traditionally fans of the musical group the Insane
Clown Posse. Arizona, California, Pennsylvania, and Utah are the
only US states that recognize Juggalos as a gang.

• NGIC reporting indicates that Juggalo gangs are
expanding in New Mexico primarily because they
are attracted to the tribal and cultural traditions
of the Native Americans residing nearby.

Most crimes committed by Juggalos are sporadic, disorganized, individualistic, and often involve simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft, and vandalism. However, open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity, such as felony assaults, thefts, robberies, and drug sales. Social networking websites are a popular conveyance for Juggalo sub-culture to communicate and expand.

• In January 2011, a suspected Juggalo member
shot and wounded a couple in King County,
Washington, according to open source reporting.13

Juggalos’ disorganization and lack of structure within their groups, coupled with their transient nature, makes it difficult to classify them and identify their members and migration patterns. Many criminal Juggalo subsets are comprised of transient or homeless individuals, according to law enforcement reporting. Most Juggalo criminal groups are not motivated to migrate based upon traditional needs of a gang. However, law enforcement reporting suggests that Juggalo criminal activity has increased over the past several years and has expanded to several other states. Transient, criminal Juggalo groups pose a threat to communities due to the potential for violence, drug use/sales, and their general destructive and violent nature.

• In January 2010, two suspected Juggalo associates
were charged with beating and robbing an
elderly homeless man.14

I have to admit that the fight to correct this and re-claim the culture that has been stolen from us by a generation that falsely claims our beliefs, and by the media that has maliciously twisted our appearance is not going to be easy by any means.. But, if you are like me and have never had anything to believe in, then found it in being a Juggalette and what it means to have Fam, and faith in humanity in general… The battle will be worth it.
