Examples of stops in a Sentence

  1. Brad Whitehurst:

    It’s your worst nightmare, your heart stops. You panic.

  2. President Barack Obama:

    What we saw was that the Ferguson Police Department in conjunction with the municipality saw traffic stops, arrests, tickets as a revenue generator, as opposed to serving the community, and that it systematically was biased against African-Americans in that city who were stopped, harassed, mistreated, abused, called names, fined.

  3. Eugène Ionesco:

    There is nothing truer than myth: history, in its attempt to realize myth, distorts it, stops halfway; when history claims to have succeeded, this is nothing but humbug and mystification. Everything we dream is realizable. Reality does not have to be: it is simply what it is.

  4. Noah Baumbach:

    Something that I discovered in writing (the film is that) ... when something stops working that you actually acknowledge it or recognise it for the first time, it's like if you're going through a door and it's locked you suddenly look at the door and you look at how it works, so I thought well through a divorce we could explore a marriage.

  5. Jeff Flake:

    He serves at the President's pleasure, so The President can fire The President. I sincerely hope that he doesn't. People worry about about the domino — if Attorney General Sessions goes, who's next ? Is it Rod Rosenstein ? Obviously, the President's comments yesterday, The President just keeps going further and further, attorney General Sessions did the right thing to recuse Attorney General Sessions. And for The President to say otherwise just is simply wrong. So I hope that The President stops trying to undermine the credibility of the Department of Justice, and let Attorney General Sessions serve.
