Criminals In San Francisco Are Now Classified As ‘Justice-Involved Persons’

‘Justice-involved persons’ are today’s criminals. San Francisco, the city that Nancy Pelosi has represented for decades, has decided it isn’t woke enough. The new “logic” is as follows: calling those who commit crimes, criminals is MEAN! Therefore a new politically correct language has been devised.

“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 sheer amount of pandering by the Board of Supervisors is jaw dropping! Can you imagine a police officer writing a report detailing an arrest of a previously convicted felon without using the words criminal, suspect, felon, or juvenile? Instead the officers would have to pretzel their reports into politically correct woke garbage? Can you imagine if a case involving a CRIMINAL – yes I’ll keep using those words thankyouverymuch – goes to the higher courts and the justices spend half the time quizzing attorneys on the idiotic language use? Shades of “My Cousin Vinny!”

Let me guess…referring to juvenile delinquents as “Yutes” isn’t politically correct either?

San Francisco has been on a woke spree for years. Every politically correct policy the city government has adopted has led to ever escalating filth on the streets, bio hazards due to all the drug needles and fecal waste, rampant crime, and a significant rise in homelessness. That’s in addition to the horrendously misguided sanctuary city policies that put the entire area at risk.

Never mind all that. Calling criminals what they are will hurt their poor widdle feelings! You see, being called prisoners, convicts, and felons is a prime example of racism and supremacy over the disadvantaged.

““Inaccurate information, unfounded assumptions, generalizations and other negative predispositions associated with justice-involved individuals create societal stigmas, attitudinal barriers and continued negative stereotypes,” it continues.

“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,” Haney said.”

You know what? I’m absolutely fine with calling a criminal a…CRIMINAL! That person who, just yesterday, started shooting up Market Street? Happy to label him a criminal! How about that homeless guy who attacked a women, the same guy the judge let back onto the streets, no questions asked? Can we still call him a deranged homeless man, or is the new moniker something like ‘a street resident struggling with medical issues who has unfortunate interactions with non-street residents?’ Nope, he fits the description of a criminal. Period. Full. Stop.

Good question.

Or anyone who commits any type of crime for that matter. Will adopting this new super duper WOKE language fix things in San Francisco?

Pandering to criminals won’t solve a damned thing. Yet that isn’t stopping San Francisco from continuing their deep dive into the cesspool called politically correct wokeness.

    I suspect progressives don’t care at all about criminals’ feelings. This is more gaslighting, directed at normal people. Us normals are the great threat to them, and they need to break our spirits and wills.

    If criminals are “justice-involved persons,” imagine to which deplorables they’ll soon be applying the label “injustice-involved.”

    “Justice-involved” persons has already become politically incorrect itself, and is being replaced by yet a better term. From the wonderful “Babylon Bee…”

    It’s even worse than that, I fear.

    The whole point of policing language, ultimately, is the policing of thought. If you know of no words with which to designate and describe a concept, you will have great difficulty grasping the concept.

    Today, they want to control what you are allowed to say, and thus what you are allowed to think, about the concept of criminality. How soon before they try to control what you are allowed to think about liberty?
