Caller: Use ‘Terrorist’ Not ‘Punk’

On her Twitter account, SR City Editor Addy Hatch reports: "Caller objects to columnist calling Boston terror suspect a 'punk.' Said it's OK to call him a terrorist, but not a punk." Addy was referring to this lead by columnist Doug Clark Sunday: "And just like that, Boston’s mind-boggling week of murder and mayhem was over. A law enforcement ensemble from what looked like every jurisdiction in copdom caught the last terrorist punk Friday night." (Full column here.)

Question: Is being called a 'terrorist' really better than being called a 'punk'? Really?
