Democrats Change Term For “Criminals” To…

State legislators from Illinois who identify as Democrats want to reclassify the term “criminals” in a 2009 bill.

Fox News revealed this week that the Illinois Crime Reduction Act’s mentions “offenders” will now read “justice-impacted individuals,” according to the efforts of many Democratic sponsors of House Bill 4409.

“The Fox article stated that it would additionally include two members who possess firsthand knowledge of the Adult Redeploy Illinois system, as well as representatives from the Sangamon and Cook County Adult Probation departments, the Illinois Dept. of Corrections, and the Illinois Dept. of Human Services to the Adult Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board.”

The announcement coincides with Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker’s (D) term as governor, which he won in 2022, according to Breitbart News. The publication pointed out that Pritzker’s lax enforcement of the law has long been a source of criticism.

It is also crucial to remember that in September, Illinois became the first state in the union to do away with cash bail.

As per the Washington Examiner on Wednesday, state senator Steve McClure (R) said, “There appears to be this rush to take away any accountability for those who commit crimes,” in reference to the attempt to rename certain “offenders” as “justice-impacted individuals.”

A person must own their mistakes to turn in the right direction. He continued, “This is quite amazing—an apology for the criminal, the one who chooses to conduct crimes against our victims, the individuals who do not choose to become victims of crimes.”

Democratic Illinois state representatives Kelly M. Cassidy and Lindsey LaPointe, as well as Democratic state senators Robert Peters, Mike Simmons, and Adriane Johnson, are the sponsors of the measure, according to the Fox story.

Earlier this week, the state Senate and House approved the law, according to WGN News. That being said, the proposed modification would only affect about 1800 Illinois inmates.

McClure also remarked, “Change this, change that,” in response to the law. You only want the actions of criminals to remain unchanged. And who is currently footing the bill for that? victims from all throughout the state. I implore you to vote no.
