Person of Interest

I think police stopped calling people “suspects” after Richard Jewel was unfairly labeled a suspect by the FBI and later took a bunch of money from people for perpetuating the slander of a hero. The problem is they have replaced “suspect” with “person of interest” in some sort of politically correct expansion of the law enforcement lexicon.  It’s been used so much now, when suspect would have been the proper term, that I now think “shooter” every time I hear “person of interest.”

It won’t work. If you guys keep using it when you mean “suspect”, eventually you will end up right back in court paying some innocent guy a lot of money.
