Examples of riots in a Sentence

  1. Tom Jackson:

    However, the general social acceptance of hate and violence toward any and all law enforcement recently has created such an unpredictable and uncontrollable threat to our lives, many feel it is not a good career to be involved in. 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. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the number of officers fatally shot is already up 56 percent compared with last year. One person who is all too familiar with race-related riots and police problems is Tom Jackson, former police chief in Ferguson, Mo. The shooting of cops is going to hurt recruitment badly, how can you convince people to come to the profession, or stay in the profession, when hundreds of people are in front of them threatening to rape their grandkids ? Now officers' spouses and children are seeing cops going down and they are begging their loved ones to get out of the force or not sign up as planned, added Tom Jackson, who retired in March, 2015. According to Tom Jackson, Tom Jackson former department is still rocked by the heavy riots and remains 17 officers short – dropping from a full strength of 55 in Tom Jackson time to 38 now.

We turned toward God, and to the values that have long made our country the freest and greatest in the world.
