The latest from the administration is a new term for convicted criminals. They will now be known as ‘justice involved individuals’.
The Equal Opportunity Employment Office has made it all but illegal to not hire former criminals and Obama is giving early release to some dangerous criminals. He’s also putting tens of thousands of illegal alien criminals on the streets. Perhaps the reason is because he doesn’t think criminals exist, especially youthful criminals.
The DOJ says the term ‘convicted criminal’ makes it too difficult for a convicted criminal to get a job. It is currently being applied to youthful criminals convicted of a crime.
“In an effort to help young people involved in the justice system find jobs and housing, the U.S. Departments of Justice and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today announced $1.75 million for Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and nonprofit legal service organizations to address the challenges justice-involved individuals face when trying to find work and a place to call home,” a statement from the Department of Justice reads.
Convicts who turned to a life of crime early on are “the future,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said, calling them “justice-involved youth”:
“The future of our nation depends upon the future of our young people – including young people who have become involved with our justice system. 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,” she said.
The left likes to find euphemisms for everything to the point of no one understanding what we’re talking about. It’s PC you know.
Loretta Lynch announced the change last November.
The term is already being used throughout the government’s youth delinquency system.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch used the term in a press release on a juvenile re-entry assistance program at the time.
Through the Juvenile Re-entry Assistance Program (JRAP), DOJ and HUD are working collaboratively to help individuals that have paid their debt to society rehabilitate and reintegrate back into their communities. This program specifically excludes those who are convicted of making methamphetamine drugs, sex offenses or domestic violence.
“The Department of Justice is committed to giving justice-involved youth the tools they need to become productive members of society,” said Attorney General Loretta Lynch. “Providing meaningful support through housing opportunities, prevention programs and other critical services is vital to our ongoing efforts to reduce recidivism, promote public safety and foster positive results in communities across the country.”
Actor James Woods tweeted this when it was first mentioned: Whenever liberals slink behind metaphors, you know they’re covering up some lie: “justice-involved youth” is the latest load of crap.
