A bit from Fairfax County, Virginia, about the use of "gypsy" as pejorative.

"Fairfax County police and prosecutors say they do not intend to be
pejorative by using the term 'gypsy crimes' but are at a loss as to how to
describe an annual rash of thefts in the county committed by an elusive,
transient group thought to be from the Romani culture."
