Since 1982 at least when People magazine referred to him as the 'late' Abe Vigoda. Which was a bit odd since Barney Miller was still being filmed at that point.

Frisky: Women Murdered For Rejecting Man While Living In A Patriarchy

Note however that the asshole was arrested by police (almost certainly) men, and will be tried by a jury including men, and eventually sentenced to prison where he will be guarded and confined by men. What kind of ineffective patriarchy is this?
