Here's a fairly short (5 minute) piece on this, with some analysis by a former prosecutor. Interestingly, he says that the banning of the term "victim" isn't all that bad. It's only in combination with the allowance of the terms "rioter, looter, arsonist" that this becomes a problem.

He also mentions that he often used the term "decedent" rather than "victim", which is another interesting tidbit.
