Term ‘Sex Offender’ Canceled Because it May Upset Registered Sex Offenders
Criminals will now be referred to as 'adults who commit sexual offenses'
The term “sex offender” isn't popular among sex offenders, according to the Colorado Sex Offender Management Board, which voted to cancel the label for fear of upsetting sex criminals.
The Federalist reported:
“The board’s decision passed following a 10-6 vote on Nov. 19 will not change the language used in criminal justice proceedings, the Colorado Sex Offender registry, or the name of the Colorado Sex Offender Management Board itself."
“It does, however, apply to the “Standards and Guidelines for the Assessment, Evaluation, Treatment and Behavioral Monitoring of Adult Sex Offenders.”
So instead of being called "sex offenders," such criminals will now be referred to as “adults who commit sexual offenses.”
The decision was made because sex offenders have faced “harsh” treatment, which they said is “counterproductive to the goal of rehabilitation.”
Dave Blount said of the term change:
“I doubt the Denver Post regards the appalling treatment of Kyle Rittenhouse overly harsh."
"Sex criminals (e.g., liberal martyr Joseph Rosenbaum) have the sympathy of the progressive establishment.
"Decent kids trying to protect people’s property from leftist rioters do not."
Only recently, the CDC released a ‘woke’ guide to language urging people to refer to inmates or prisoners as “people who are incarcerated or detained."
It also calls criminals “people in pre-trial or with charge” or “people who were formerly incarcerated.”
It seems the governments across the globe have been protecting sex offenders as they are allowed to be coddled by the system while victims are left without help.
One example is the UK government recently pulling funding to help child victims of criminal sex gangs.
The £500,000 grant, which is aimed at helping victims of child grooming gangs in Rotherham, was pulled last week.
Meanwhile, in the U.S, a violent sex offender with a long criminal history was allowed to walk free by George Soros-funded prosecutors after being arrested twice in three days on felony charges in Northern Virginia.
The move has led local leaders to wonder what it takes to land a criminal behind bars when far-left prosecutors backed by Soros are administering justice.
