after "undocumented worker"... we now get this:
 
San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person'

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/san...nvolved-person

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.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, from now on a convicted felon or an offender released from custody will be known as a “formerly incarcerated person,” or a “justice-involved” person or just a “returning resident.”

A juvenile “delinquent” will now be called a “young person with justice system involvement,” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

And drug addicts or substance abusers, meanwhile, will become “a person with a history of substance use.”

“We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done,” Supervisor Matt Haney told the newspaper. “We want them ultimately to become contributing citizens, and referring to them as felons is like a scarlet letter that they can never get away from.”

The sanitized language, though unlikely to do much to address the crime problem, may result in some convoluted descriptions of crimes in the future.

The newspaper noted an individual whose car has been broken into could well be known to police as “a person who has come in contact with a returning resident who was involved with the justice system and who is currently under supervision with a history of substance use.”

The board’s approved new language is non-binding, with the district attorney endorsing the measure. Mayor London Breed hasn’t yet endorsed the new language.

A bunch of people in San Francisco need to be rounded up and dropped in the ocean, a couple of hundred miles offshore.

SF is also going to spend $ 600,000 painting over a historic, Great Depression era mural of George Washington in one of their high schools, because apparently all their other problems have been solved.

and LA just spent 700k per condo for condos for the homeless.

'here's your free condo, don't destroy it'......6 months later, the appliances are toast or gone, wiring is missing, windows broken, wood floors burned or removed.....'no problem, we'll fix that up and try again for 150k' :slap:

Wrong attitude. I have a friend that is an art restorer, an artisan. The city of New Orleans called my friend when they wanted to have their historic statues removed (because they were now offensive). He told them he wouldn't do the job for any amount of money.

Painting over George Washington and ripping down statues is about on par with the Taliban blowing up historic Buddha statues.

Why not just call them Democrats. It fits

Loco Vette 08-22-2019 2:57pm

That's the whole liberal logic. If they can get the whole world to use the words they want as they demand, then all of their voters (Illegal aliens, rapists, felons, etc) become "Undocumented immigrants", "Permission confused gender fluid sexual partners" and "momentarily ethics challenged individuals" while your prototypical hardworking conservative is now a "racist homophobic gunfetishist Trumpian", and in their minds the argument is already won. Don't bow to this bullshit.

I mostly agree. But....a couple of hundred miles ain't nearly far enough.:yesnod:
