Examples of TOM in a Sentence

  1. Tom Jackson:

Statistics show the number of police officers feloniously killed in the line of duty had been on a downward trajectory since 1970. This year, cop deaths are up more than 50 percent, and the victims in Dallas, Baton Rouge and other cases were targeted for assassination rather than killed in the process of confronting dangerous criminals.
