Redding Juggalo TV Interview
Alright this is just absolutely amazing. News channel 7 of Redding, Ca was doing a story on the police involved shooting from last Friday that ended with 19 year old Scott Deen being fatally shot by police officers. The news story led into an interview with a Gary Geer that was upset by the fact that violent criminals like Scott Deen were giving juggalos a negative image and leading to the group’s label as a gang. Gary was quoted during the interview saying,
“it’s not fair that they’re labled as a gang just because there are a few bad apples. They said when people commit crimes, they’re not doing it in the name of the Juggalo family and that people make their own personal decisions.
“I run around everyday with my face painted. I wear my medallion with pride, but I don’t commit crimes. I don’t condone crimes. I’m not agreeing with these people that are committing crimes and saying that they’re Juggalos because that’s taking away from what it’s all about,” Geer Jr. tell us.
They say the true way of life for Juggalos is about promoting love and being with people you can relate to. “It’s about listening to good music and having a family atmosphere, looking out for each other,”
Now that we have established that juggalos are just getting a bad wrap I had to share these mugshots. Please tell me I am not the only one that sees the irony in this.
