Obama Admin Now Refers to Criminals as "Justice-Involved Individuals"

Under the Obama administration, convicted criminals are now being referred to as "justice-involved individuals."

Of course, these "justice-involved individuals" can only be helped through more taxpayer money.

From the NY Post:
It's only May, but I think I've found the euphemism of the year: According to Team Obama, criminals should now be declared "justice-involved individuals."

The neo-Orwellianism comes to us from the bizarre flurry of last-minute diktats, regulations and bone-chilling threats collectively known to fanboys as Obama's Gorgeous Goodbye.

In another of those smiley-faced, but deeply sinister, "Dear Colleague" letters sent to universities and college this week, Obama's Education Secretary John King discouraged colleges from asking applicants whether they were convicted criminals.

An accompanying pamphlet was called "Beyond the Box: Increasing Access to Higher Education for Justice-Involved Individuals."
So rapists, burglars, armed robbers and drug dealers aren't criminals anymore. These folks are simply "involved" with "justice," according to Obamanoids.

Maybe they're right: "Criminals" is an inherently disparaging term that leads to stigmatization and decreased access to Eugene O'Neill seminars. But don't we need to retroactively reconfigure how we think of those unfortunate souls who found themselves pursued by harsh enforcers of restrictive behavioral norms?

When you think about it, Jack the Ripper was merely a "cutlery-involved individual" while Jeffrey Dahmer was simply a "unconventional dietary-options-involved individual."
Here's one thing we can be certain of, the term "white-collar criminals" is not going anywhere.
