Yeah, pluralizing the word "individual" is almost self contradictory. It hints at suggestion rather than statement.

PH: The use of the phrase "a person of interest" when the term "suspect" is obviously appropriate. Even worse when it's not clear that the person is a suspect. The term is legally meaningless yet very damaging in its usage. Just ask Richard Jewell (the man falsely implicated in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing).

Key: Complain about this post
