Bat Man is no longer a ‘crime fighter’, just someone who chases people who do bad things!
In other words, there are no longer criminals in jails, but people convicted of criminal activity. No longer should a man convicted of rape or murder be labeled a’rapist or a ‘murderer’, but only as being someone convicted of those crimes. This is just the latest buffoonery in a profession heavily dominated by Leftists.
The AP drops ‘illegal immigrant’
4/2/13 3:20 PM EDT
The Associated Press on Tuesday announced it will no longer use the term “illegal immigrant” or “illegal” to describe a person — but did not say which term, if any, should take its place.
The AP Stylebook has been updated to state that it no longer sanctions the use of “illegal” or “illegal immigrant” for a person, senior vice president and executive editor Kathleen Carroll wrote in a blog post. The Stylebook now directs that “illegal” should only be used to describe an action, “such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally,” Carroll noted.
The AP aims to label “behavior” instead of “people,” Carroll wrote, pointing out that “the new section on mental health issues argues for using credibly sourced diagnoses instead of labels. Saying someone was ‘diagnosed with schizophrenia’ instead of schizophrenic, for example.” The AP, she said, is working on “ridding the Stylebook of labels.”
“And that discussion about labeling people, instead of behavior, led us back to ‘illegal immigrant’ again,” she said. “We concluded that to be consistent, we needed to change our guidance. So we have.”
