Examples of rioting in a Sentence

  1. Jonathan Pryke:

    I guarantee you the vast majority of the people involved in the rioting and looting couldn't point China or Taiwan out on a map, they were there as opportunists because they have had very limited economic opportunity. It's a very poor country with high youth unemployment, and this just shows how quickly these things can spiral out of control in a country that's volatile.

  2. Donald Trump:

    By the way, a lot of people in California don't want them, either, they're rioting now. They want to get out of their sanctuary cities.

  3. Josh Campbell:

    Portland is not a city under siege. Today, I went to a Starbucks downtown, ate lunch at one of the city's famous downtown food trucks, and bought a new pair of shoes at the mall. As I write this, I'm looking out of my hotel room at a bike tour riding by outside on the downtown street, to be sure, there have been protests -- peaceful during the daytime, and some turning violent at night -- for over 90 days, but the rioting has largely been confined to one city block downtown near the federal courthouse. Last night, protesters showed up at a police precinct a few miles from downtown and were dispersed by police after some protesters started throwing eggs and rocks at police cars. There has been periodic, localized violence, but nothing widespread.

  4. Judge Schroeder:

    Let the evidence show what the evidence shows -- that any or one of these people were engaged in arson, rioting or looting, then I'm not going to tell the defense they can't call them that.

  5. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:

    The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.
