    Wow! No More Criminals!

    Why didn't we think of this before!

    San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other crime lingo


    Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as “offender” and “addict” while changing “convicted felon” to “justice-involved person.”

    The Board of Supervisors adopted the changes last month even as the city reels from one of the highest crime rates in the country and staggering inequality exemplified by pervasive homelessness alongside Silicon Valley wealth.

    The local officials say the new language will help change people’s views about those who commit crimes.

    Hmmm... the law says that convicted felons can't vote it says nothing about "justice involved persons." Sounds like the Dems are trying to expand their voter base.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    What exactly is a justice involved person? A lawyer, court clerk?

    Nonsense like this is going to put the Babylon Bee out of business.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    And to think, we once thought that "1984" was just a science fiction novel. He was just a bit early on the timing prediction.

    "Justice involved person" sounds like a name for someone who works in the courts, not someone who is sentenced by them.

    What are they going to call their homeless? "Asphalt Involved Persons?"

    "Crime" is a pejorative term. They need to come up with something more innocuous.

    "Transnormative behavior" has a little more cachet, I think.
