JIPs, FIPs, and PHOSUs

Because San Francisco is Desperately Evading Real Problems (DERP), their Department Of Progressive Euphemisms (DOPE) has solved the problem of crime and drug addiction by replacing the derogatory terms for the crooks and bums that have filled their streets with crime and their sidewalks with feces. Convicted criminals are now Justice-Involved Persons or Formerly-Incarcerated Persons. Since recidivism has been redefined as Addiction, actual addicts are Persons with a History Of Substance Use.

The new temporarily-acceptable terms for criminal minors just roll off the tongue: Young Person Impacted by the Juvenile Justice System and Young Person with Justice System Involvement.
