Let’s Get Real: Juggalo First Responders

Let's Get Real

What’s up, juggalos? Welcome to another edition of Let’s Get Real! In my first segment, I spoke about juggalos and the common stereotypes that we deal with. This time, I want to get into a talk about first responders. More specifically, juggalo first responders. Now for those of you who aren’t aware of what the term ‘first responders’ means, it represents the men and women who arrive to scenes of serious situations before all others. In other words, medical personnel, police officers, and firefighters. These individuals are some of the bravest human beings out there, risking their own lives for the sake of others’. Once again going back to the first Let’s Get Real, I mentioned that juggalos are most often the first to lend a helping hand. This certainly pertains to EMT’s, police officers, and firefighters who also happen to be juggalos.

The idea for this specific segment came from an awesome ninja who recommended that I feature something about his line of duty. He is a fireman himself, so out of respect for him and others like him, let’s get into the actual real talk. Growing up, I always had it instilled in me to have respect for the men and women who put their lives on the line for civilians. Therefore, I naturally carried this notion with me as I got older. Add to that, the amount of respect that I held only got stronger. Sure there’s a fair share of dirty police officers and such, but the reality is, the majority of them hold a high place in society that is well-deserved. When I first came into the juggalo world, I figured that those same people hated juggalos. With all this added bullshit with the FBI, it only fuels the distaste that we feel towards those of authority. Then at one point, I found out that there are actually police men and women, firefighters, and EMT’s who double as juggalos. With this revelation came the knowledge that being a juggalo does not effect the way that they work, and vice versa.

The point I’m trying to make here is this: you don’t have to have a cape to be a hero and first responders are the heroes of everyday life. Lastly, it does not matter if you’re a juggalo or not. Anyone can become a first responder and change lives.

Much love, Fam! Whoop Whoop!
