Gee, Officer Krupke, I’m a “justice-involved youth”: Obama euphemism for young criminals
From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:
Old: “Juvenile delinquent.”
Real old: “Punk.”
New: “Justice-Involved youth.”
Yes, that’s the name the ultra-nonjudgmental Obama administration has decided to call young criminals, because the word “criminals” apparently makes them feel bad, and we can’t have that.
Investor’s Daily reports:
“A press release issued earlier [on April 25] describes a new $1.75 million grant program as designed ‘to help young people involved in the justice system find jobs and housing.'”
And here’s a quote from the press release:
“U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and HUD Secretary Julián Castro announced the funding during a news conference with local leaders in Philadelphia today.
“’The future of our nation depends upon the future of our young people – including young people who have become involved with our justice system,’ said Attorney General Lynch. ‘By helping justice-involved youth find decent jobs and stable housing after they return home, these critical grants provide a foundation for a fresh start and offer a path towards productivity and purpose. In the months ahead, the Department of Justice will continue helping justice-involved youth enrich their lives and improve our country.’”
