How to use dole out in a sentence?

  1. Said Boumedouha:

    The world’s spotlight is shining on Saudi Arabia. If authorities ignore widespread criticism and unashamedly continue with the flogging of Raif Badawi, Saudi Arabia would be demonstrating contempt for international law and disregard for world opinion, flogging and other forms of corporal judicial punishment violate the prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment. By continuing to dole out this inhuman punishment the Saudi Arabian authorities are flagrantly flouting basic human rights principles.

  2. Franklin D. Roosevelt:

    We have here a human as well as an economic problem. When humane considerations are concerned, Americans give them precedence. The lessons of history, confirmed by the evidence immediately before me, show conclusively that continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual and moral disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fibre. To dole out relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit.

  3. El Sabrout:

    We should no longer judge trans people (and by extension, dole out acceptance and rights) based on their ability to 'pass,' we need to stop forcing trans people to feel like they are required to undergo a lot of pretty harrowing medical procedures that they may not want or might be beyond their means.
