I and my regular readers tend to pick on one group of people more than others when they commit crimes. Mainly for the reason that I’ve never seen one band’s group of fans commit more stupid crimes with their faces painted like mimes. Of course, I’m referring to the Juggalos, fans of the rap group Insane Clown Posse or ICP.
Now before we go any further let me make it perfectly clear that I don’t think the music made these kids commit crimes. They committed crimes because they’re idiots, plain and simple. Now on to the story.
An 18 and a 15-year-old Juggalo tried to kidnap a 5-year-old boy in Salt Lake City over the weekend while they had their faces painted like idiots. The 5-year-old managed to get away and ran back to his house for help which should tell you what kind of criminal masterminds they are. Police caught up with them with their faces still painted.
This was not the first run in Utah police have had with Juggalos. Just recently 21-year-olds Cody Jesse Augustine, of West Jordan, and Scott Tyler Stapley, of Murray were arrested for a July 29th attack on a teen. The pair are accused of attacking the teen with a knife and a replica battle-ax in which the victim received life-threatening injuries.
Am I saying that all Juggalos are criminals? No, of course not. There just seem to be a disproportionate amount of them that are.
I wonder if this is where the term ‘assclown’ came from.
Thanks to Jennifer for the tip.
