Examples of civilians in a Sentence

  1. James Comey:

    In my view, a huge portion of WikiLeaks' activities has nothing to do with legitimate newsgathering, informing the public and commenting on important public controversies, but is simply about releasing classified information to damage the US, people sometimes get cynical about journalists -- American journalists do not do that. They will almost always call us before they publish classified information and say, 'is there anything about this that is going to put lives in danger -- that is going to jeopardize government people, military people, or innocent civilians anywhere in the world?'.

  2. El Hillo:

    There are 420,000 people in besieged areas in Syria, the biggest portion of them besieged by ISIL in Deir al-Zor, we are ready to talk to anyone to reach civilians and deliver urgently needed humanitarian assistance, but the fact of the matter is we have been extremely unsuccessful in reaching people in areas controlled by ISIL.

  3. Bob Menendez:

    Stand up for the proposition that we won't let any allies, just because they're an ally, kill, with impunity, a journalist — something that we cherish under our Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the freedom of expression under the First Amendment. And stand up for the proposition that we won't let our bombs fall upon innocent civilians and have the moral responsibility which will be a blemish on our history for years to come.

  4. Chris Gunness:

    There must be safe passage for the sick and the wounded and the dying civilians.

  5. Austin Police Department:

    The lack of cadet classes at APD over the last couple of years has contributed to an officer staffing shortage, in order to prioritize the Department’s ability to respond to 911 phone calls and keep the community safe, APD has had to reallocate some personnel from our support units back to patrol. The Sex Offender Apprehension and Registration Unit (SOAR) is one of the units affected by these staffing challenges and lost 3 officers who were re-assigned to patrol in the process. These officers’ duties and tasks while assigned to SOAR were to perform sex offender compliance checks, and to track down and arrest those with outstanding warrants. With the absence of these officers in the SOAR unit to assist with these tasks, the unit has limited capacity to perform these functions. There are currently 1 sergeant, 3 detectives, 1 full time civilian, and 2 part time civilians who now work in this unit.
