This guy? How 'bout "this man"? Too many reruns of Law & Order on Sundance.

How 'bout you focus on the much larger point that someone was sexually assaulted...

How 'bout the cops realize someone was sexually assaulted and not use an informal word thus inappropriate, unprofessional language I would expect from the late great Jerry Orbach in an episode of Law & Order circa 1998? L&O was/is a show, this is real life.

Perhaps you should tell the Ninth Precinct to focus on the much larger point that this man is that, not a "guy."

"Guy" is a friendly word for a man thus an inappropriate word to use in a flyer calling for people to locate a man who tried to rape a woman.

"A man is wanted for attempted rape in the East Village tonight."

"A guy is wanted for attempted rape in the East Village tonight."

Read each sentence like a tv newscaster would and grow a brain if you think the second one is appropriate, so why would it be appropriate for people who are actually trying to catch the man to use that word?

Correction: Seventh Precinct, but I'm sure the Ninth would've called this lowlife a "guy", too.

Second correction: "guy" was used in the 7th Precinct's Twitter not the flyer which is worse because way more people see that tweet than that flyer.
