San Francisco neighbor says don’t call thieves ‘criminals’
In the site’s Crime and Safety area, where residents share strategies for fighting crime, Malkia Cyril of S.F. suggests that her neighbors stop using the label because it shows lack of empathy and understanding.
Cyril pointed out that instead of calling the thief who took the bicycle from your garage a criminal, you could be more respectful and call him or her “the person who stole my bicycle.”
Or ‘that dead SOB.’
I’m sure those slandered ‘criminals’ are just freelance redistributionists; benefactors of society. They’re merely taking from the rich and giving to themselves the poor. In a truly just world, they’d all be congresscritters, redistributing on a massive scale, and getting paid to do it by their victims clients.
