Perfect exampel of why libshits have no room to call Trump loony or crazy, this is some of the dumbest shit I have ever read. Changing words does not change situations.

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.

What would they call a junkie who shits on the sidewalk now?

A person with a history of substance use who relieves digestive irritation upon the podiatric thoroughfares?

Did I get that right?

Well, the word 'justice' now officially means absolutely nothing.

Do Californians stay up late trying to think of ways to out-retard themselves? Is there some trophy or reward for out-retarding yourself in California?

Build the wall...... between California and the rest of America! Keep that disease contained :-)

In ten years they'll have to change them again. It's the underlying reality that a word represents, not the word itself, that has negative connotations. It doesn't take long for the underlying reality to catch up with the new word.
