The UNR campus hosted a get-the-vote-out rally this morning with guest speaker Senator Bernie Sanders. He was in town to endorse several local and State candidates, including Senate candidate Jacky Rosen.
There was a small gathering of Juggalos and Juggalettes on Reno’s City Plaza to protest the Justice Department’s National Gang Intelligence Center’s naming them a loosely organized hybrid gang, like the Crips, Bloods and MS-13. Juggalos are fans of Insane Clown Posse, a rap group that calls itself the most hated band in the world. The annual Gang Threat Assessment report said the Juggalos engaged in criminal activity and violence. The group claims otherwise. The local gathering was small compared to the rally in Washington, DC.
