San Francisco board rebrands ‘convicted felon’ as ‘justice-involved person,’ sanitizes other crime lingo. “911 what is your emergency? I was raped by a justice-involved person. 911 Hahahahahahhahahah…wtf? *Click*”

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.

I have a feeling that if anyone every investigated the political leaders of Feces Frisco, they would all be “justice-involved”, and Would never be “mortgage challenged” while they are in a secured and gated community would spend their days playing with bars of bubble making products while enjoying long hot showers together till the wee hours of the morning…

Inmate, convict are the proper names. Those who have not been convicted yet are referred to as arrestees or detainees.

Don’t wish to stereo type, what bull shit

You can call a rowboat an ‘aircraft carrier’, but you’re in big trouble if you try to land a fighter jet on it.
