    While crap and needles are all over their streets, they found that calling convicted felons 'justice involved persons' more important to deal with. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/san...akA0pOa18fMF8A
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    most sane people would prefer they sanitize their streets.

    From the Fox article...
    The local officials say the new language will help change people’s views about those who commit crimes.
    no, I still view them as criminals regardless of what you call them. You can put lipstick on a pig and it's still a pig.

    It might be interesting to drop-in to a travel forum and see what 'average' travelers have to say about the place. It can't be good... and if there's no mention of 'criminal elements' or 'unusual restrictions', etc., then there's some internet-voodoo going-on.

    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.
    Euphemism hooked up with Prolixity and this silliness is their bastard child. Bureaucrats are likely to be too lazy to use a paragraph worth of gobbledygoo to say, "A recently released felon on probation got arraigned for stealing a car and is in jail because (s)he couldn't post bail."
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Think about it for a minute. Illegal immigrants are undocumented. Criminals are justice-involved persons. Even in some prisons inmates are simply residents. However, conservatives are Nazis, fascists, and whatever -ist the left can some up with.

    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    Former california governor brown referred to taxpayers as "freeloaders" for our objections to his gas tax hike and car registration fee increases in 2017

    California Governor Jerry Brown referred to taxpayers as “freeloaders” last week for objecting to his new gas tax and car fee hikes.
