Why do you use the word "actor(s)"? It's pretentious and not clear!

Hi Laura - I've actually thought about that myself. The word "actor(s)" is the official term police use in their reports, which is the basis for some of my crime articles. I keep that word because I want to be as clear as possible, for two reasons: 1. The word "actor" is used because the police don't know who committed the crime. If there was a suspect in the case, the word would be "suspect" - not actor. I write a lot about cases where police are looking for help on an incident, so I run into "actor" a lot. 2. I keep the (s) after actors because the police don't know if it was one person or several people. So, I guess my other options would be person(s), character(s), individual(s)...which, to me, don't sound much different than "actor(s)." I hope that answers your question!
