  • No longer "felon," "convict," or "offender"

    Orwellian correct speak appears again, from the usual suspects of the American Regressive Left ...

    Obama DOJ Bans 'Disparaging' Labels 'Felon,' 'Offender.' Here Are Their PC Replacements.

    Following President Obama's lead, the Department of Justice is continuing its Orwellian scrubbing of the language. Not only is it now calling young criminals "justice-involved youth" (seriously), it's now banning the terms "felon," "convict," and "offender" because they are "disparaging labels." Their replacements: "person who committed a crime" and "individual who was incarcerated."

    The change was proudly announced by Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason, head of the Office of Justice programs, in a piece published in The Washington Post Wednesday titled "Justice Dept. Agency To Alter Its Terminology For Relased Convicts, To Ease Reentry." The goal, Mason explains, is to "reduce the psychological barriers to reintergration" for felons and convicts individuals who committed a crime/were incarcerated.

    "[M]any of the formerly incarcerated men, women, and young people I talk with say that no punishment is harsher than being permanently branded a 'felon' or 'offender,'" she writes. "The labels we affix to those who have served time can drain their sense of self-worth and perpetuate a cycle of crime, the very thing reentry programs are designed to prevent."

        I look forward to the day that we can say Hillary Clinton ( "person who committed a crime" and "individual who was incarcerated.")

                That's fine so long as axe-murderer, thug, rapist, pedophile, and career criminal are still allowed...

                Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason is an idiot with a capital IDIOT. The biggest barrier to reentry for 90% of convicts is that they are stupid, useless, lazy, unreliable, illiterate, ignorant, drug addled turds.

                What use is somebody that can't be trusted to make change, or can't read a tape measure? Or, what good is someone who shows up to work late, does it halfassed, and gets drunk at lunch?

                This Progressive liar, err... lawyer is a friggin ret... (person of diminished intellectual capacity).

                  Okay, let's play her game. I'd like to know her corrective term for a pederast. Does she really intend to make those s warm and fuzzy with a new term? Dumb !

                    That was a European thing, like massacring Jews and pointless world wars.

                      How about "jail bird" or "jail bait"?

                          G David Bock - 'justice-involved youth' is just another wishy-washy term that could indeed also describe young police cadets or student lawyers straight from high school!

                          When I was a kid {young goat], homosexual/homo or lesbian/lezzy/lessie, meant same sex attraction/activity, these days it is 'gay', which used to mean 'happy or carefree'.

                          The 'Spastic Society', in order to steer away from the derogatory term 'Spazza' spent thousands of £££ getting a makeover - they finally settled on 'Scope'. It is a pity that someone didn't tell them that in the RAF the guy who stares at radar screens is commonly referred to as a 'scope dope'! The joys, perils, and quirks of language.


                          the ace - Does 'Bawbag' refer to a borstal inmate?

                              And many museums in the USA have the old F branding irons. Some places branded it on the palm of the right hand - hence the custom of raising the right hand when taking an oath - it's to show that you are not a former felon
