It's Insane Clown Posse vs. the FBI in the Trailer for 'United States of Insanity'
The documentary will follow the rap group as they fight against their 2011 designation as a "hybrid gang"
Published Sep 23, 2021Insane Clown Posse are up against the FBI in the new trailer for The United States of Insanity, the upcoming documentary from Strike Back Studios that explores the group's classification as a "loosely organized hybrid gang" by the FBI a decade ago.
The documentary will arrive in theatres on October 26 after debuting at Fantastic Fest on September 28. It follows Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope as they advocate on behalf of fans and themselves. It'll also feature never-before-seen footage of ICP in concert.
Here's the official description of the film:
"The World's Most Hated Band," notorious rappers Insane Clown Posse, find themselves as unwitting warriors for the First Amendment after they and their one million die-hard fans (called Juggalos) are labeled a gang by the FBI. With the help of the ACLU, the band fights to uncover the reasons behind the designation and get removed from the gang list as their fans begin to [lose] their jobs, have their children put into protective custody, and face jail time — all because of their musical tastes.
In 2017, the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Juggalos had failed to present evidence that the FBI designation had resulted in legal consequences. A few months later, the FBI declassified the 2011 report that resulted in the designation, in which ICP members are accused of "drug sales, drug possession, and child endangerment, as well as many other crimes typically seen by gangs and gang members."
