Children in Conflict with the Law

I came across this term used several times in a news article I read today. I had never seen it before, so I googled it and got almost a million hits -- the first several of which were from UNICEF. This leads me to believe that it is the new (or maybe not-so-new, I'm not up on such things) PC term for what we used to call juvenile delinquents.

One of the really hilarious things about do-gooders is that they seem to honestly think that changing words changes reality; that if a thing or situation or group is negatively perceived by the public, that changing the name will change the perception and solve all the problems associated with the thing/situation/group.

It doesn't work, but they keep doing it. What does that tell us about them?


  1. I read this subject line and had no idea what it was referring to. Perhaps the goal is to confuse us.

  2. You're probably one of those retrograde types who think that garbage men should not be called 'waste disposal workers'.
