My concern is that people are using
Category:American Criminals as a way to push negative POVs aginst
such persons (regardless if the person is alive or dead). The reason
for my concern is that it indiscriminately group people as diverse
as person that was convicted from stealing a pair of jeans at Wal-
Mart with serial killers, rapists and the like.
I believe there's already a guideline on this, or at least on the use
of lists of such things. I think we actually have a guideline against
the creation of vilification lists - vilification categories should
probably go with it.
Now, how about "notorious criminals"? Hmm. "Famous criminals"?
be different - at least you're saying the person's crime has to be
You can't do those, they introduce POV to the category, and categories
should be unambiguous. I personally feel the category and all sub-cats
meed to be renamed "convicted of a crime", "served a prison sentence"
deleted. If vilification applies to lists, it should apply to
categories and that might be the best place to move this on. There's
been deletion debates on these categories before, I seem to remember
participating in them, but I can't remember what stance I took then.
