How to use misappropriate in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Three wise monkeys who teach to 'speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil' signify refraining totally from evil, yet they also represent 'good people' who do nothing about evil, feign ignorance, and turn a blind eye to misappropriate behaviors. It's possible that evil won't prevail in the society, if good people stop to stand by, and take positive steps to stand up and be counted.

  2. Ernie Getto:

    I'm not aware of any circumstance where we haven't put boots on the ground [to] oversee the [aid] distributions. It would be hard for anyone to get hold of the shipments and misappropriate them, we have been audited externally – and everything we have been audited about has come out with a good result. I am not saying we are perfect but I think we are as close to it as an organization can get.
