‘Inmates’ is too judgmental!
Call us dumbfounded! (Does anyone care?)
Dane County’s sheriff revealed what a dumb ass he is. Only three months in office, Sheriff Kalvin Barrett called a full-fledged press conference this morning. Had he solved a crime? No! He was kowtowing to Madison’s Woke progressives and he was proud of it. Sheriff Barrett announced this morning:
“We will no longer refer to our incarcerated
community members as ‘inmates.’
Their new title will be ‘resident(s)‘
or ‘those within our care.’ “
Barrett said the word “inmate” was outdated and dehumanizing. What do you want? The guy was appointed by Gov. One-Term Tony Evers.
Joining the sheriff at his Woke epiphany were Dane County Board Chair Analiese Eicher, Supervisor Maureen McCarville, and State Rep. Shelia Stubbs, D-Madison.
“I view this change in name as a way to humanize those who are within our care,” Barrett said. “As we take part in this transition, I want us to keep in mind our Sheriff’s Office philosophy and understanding of the importance of titles, such as ‘peace officers‘ instead of ‘law enforcement officers’.”
“The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is a national leader in appropriate progressive reform, and many follow our lead,” Barrett crowed.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: The word ‘inmate’ is supposed to be pejorative! The sheriff would be lucky if Madison progressives called his deputies “law enforcement officers” instead of those animals that make bacon.
