I feel sorry for the writers in newspapers. They must spend half the time second guessing themselves trying to avoid outraging any of the dozens of "victim" groups out there.
Occasionally this has hilarious results. In Chicago, an Alderman has ensured dozens of treatment centres for mentally ill, drug addicts, etc., are located in her ward, to create a ready-made block of supporters to keep her in office.
One of these guys has harrassed and scared locals for years
They talk about all the stuff this guy does, like live off the taxpayer, smoke crack, and beg aggressively.
And then the money quotation:
"Bellwood could not be reached for comment"
That's probably because he's somewhere between Edgewater and Pluto at the moment!
