WAFF implicates Juggalo of Insane Clown Posse in murder

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, December 9, 2011

First, let me say this: WAFF and their sensationalistic baloney “reporting” is the collectively worthless representative work of human beings assembled together for the express purpose of nothing more than getting you to watch their “the sky is falling” crap.

It’s not that the human beings are worthless, it’s what they do which is worthless.

Here’s why.

Marie Waxel – whose published email address is MWaxel@waff.com – is a Shoals Newsroom reporter for Huntsville, AL television station WAFF channel 48, and reported on a tragic murder in the Northwest Shoals area of Alabama.

This is the photograph WAFF used to report that a self-described "juggalo" from the Insane Clown Posse was implicated in an Alabama murder.

In her 5PM news report she said of the accused that, “Williams‘ mother told me her son is a self-proclaimed ‘Juggalo’ and is a member of what’s known as ICP, or Insane Clown Posse.

“Now, I took a deeper, a closer look at the Insane Clown Posse.

“Coming up at six we’re going to hear from a certified gang investigator and hear exactly what this group is, and how police are trying to put a stop to it.

In her report, Miss Waxel used a photograph and one story – http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2011/10/fbi-gang-insane-clown-posse/ – and reported that Insane Clown Posse was a dangerous gang.

Having performed an extensive search of the FBI and ATF websites, I can say this: based upon my Google-guided and extensive search, there is absolutely NOTHING even remotely related to “Insane Clown Posse,” “clown,” “ICP,” or “Juggalo” on their websites.

The FBI report entitled “National Gang Threat Assessment 2011” – which document can be found at http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/publications/2011-national-gang-threat-assessment did not appear in my search, and was temporarily off-line, and displayed the following message: “Note: This document has been removed temporarily. Please check back at a later time. There are currently no items in this folder.”

However, the report may be downloaded from this alternate Google Docs site.

In the report, there is ONLY ONE mention of “Insane Clown Posse,” which mention is:

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.

Further, the report essentially identifies “Juggalos” as a homeless groups of wannabes, and says that any law violations committed by those who so identify themselves that they “are sporadic, disorganized, individualistic, and often involve simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft, and vandalism.” (p.21)

The report further states that “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 sub-sets 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.” (p.22)

So there you have it, folks.

Disorganized, homeless, lack of structure, transient nature… it sounds more like a group of wannabes than a credibly serious threat.

Younger readers already know that, and the rest of the world now knows it. Insane Clown Posse is a musical duo.

WAFF – What A Feakin’ Failure!

Otherwise, there was absolutely NOTHING even remotely related to “Insane Clown Posse” on either the ATF or FBI websites.

SHAME ON YOU WAFF for deceiving the public!
