Prison "Inmates" Becoming "Offenders" Now

Sep 17, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Ogdensburg Courier-Observer/Journal

A subtle change in the state prisons is afoot, workers there say: Inmates are no longer "inmates." They're "offenders." "Why soften it? Why try and be nicey-nicey and make it anything less than what it is?" said Michael H. LaDue, president of the local Council 82, which represents lieutenant corrections officers at Watertown Correctional Facility.
