Examples of gash in a Sentence

  1. Loretta Lynch:

    I think if you talk to people who live in communities that deal with these issues all the time, they will say to you that what these videos are showing us now is what people in many minority communities have been talking about for years, and what they've been describing for years, but they haven't been believed, they have been dismissed, mainly because people don't want to believe that law enforcement can overstep. And of course, it's not every law enforcement officer. But when it happens, the impact that it has, the gash that it leaves, in the web of trust that we need in order for everyone to feel safe, is tremendous. And so that's why these incidents resonate so deeply.

  2. Drew Hamilton:

    I mean they're basically talking about putting a 175-mile gash across this pristine habitat.
