Seattle Cops Can No Longer Call Suspects ‘Suspects,’ Must Now Call Them…

Seattle police officers, filling out use of force reports, can no longer use the term ‘suspect’ to describe a suspect in a crime, they must now use the term ‘community member.’ One incident highlighted the insensitivity of the change in terminology, offending police officers, from KIRO 7 (source below):

Sources point to the suspect who shot three officers last month after a downtown Seattle armed robbery. When officers involved in that incident were writing their use of force reports they were required to refer to the shooter, Damarius Butts, as a “community member,” not a suspect, police sources said.

Police fatally shot Butts after they said he shot the officers.

“I think this is all in an effort to make sure our report writing sounds politically correct,” Seattle Police Officers’ Guild Kevin Stuckey told KIRO 7.

Police officers only have a problem with using the politically correct terminology on use of force reports.

  9. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe that you should write on this topic, it might not often be a taboo subject but normally folks are insufficient to communicate in on such topics. To another location. Cheers

  10. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
