Nomination for a Hero Badge


Unfuckingbelievable! What a joy it must be to work as a cop in Seattle. 

Newspeak Dictionary Update: Suspected Criminals Are Now “Community Members.”

Seattle law enforcement officers need to update their copies of the Newspeak Dictionary at once. Suspected criminals are now to be referred to as “community members”:

One assumes that the police use a standardized form. If the choice is limited to Reporting Person, Complainant, Witness, Suspected Person, arrested person and other it is not like making a choice is an editorial comment.

That comes later when any of the following terms are entirely appropriate when discussing suspects or arrests: scumbag, asshole, shithead, turd, dumbshit, rocket scientist, booger eating moron, and motherfucker. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and there are regional variations and generational variants. Check with local law enforcement.

My prediction: with the kinder gentler approach assaults on police officers in the Seattle area will rise, and the number of officers involved in shootings will double.
