How to use mob in a sentence?

  1. Soumya Sambasivan:

    We have already started the lookout for the accused, as it was a mob attack, so far we have registered the case for murder against unknown people.

  2. Charles Krauthammer:

    We will know looking back if this is warranted, but I must say the way that she spoke at the very end in which she essentially said to the mob, ‘I will speak on your behalf, I will bring you justice and now you will bring peace.’ She doesn’t speak for the mob and her job is not to bring peace, her job is to adjudicate these issues without consideration for what’s going to happen outside. It looks like appeasement of the mob. We will only know when the evidence eventually comes out.

  3. The Royal Society of Medicine:

    Post election violence was experienced firsthand as neighbor turned on neighbor, communities were destroyed and the media in some cases became the focus of mob rage, the deeply traumatic nature of this exposure to violence is highlighted by the fact that seven years on from the rioting and mayhem, prominent symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety remain.

  4. Juliet Germanotta:

    What happened last night was not a peaceful protest, a mob tried to physically assault, and in my opinion, tried to kill us. These individuals do not care about justice. They do not care about law and order. I do not know what these people care about, but they do not care about human lives.

  5. Bert Rand:

    Don't forget that pure democracy is a form of collectivism -- it readily sacrifices individual rights to majority wishes. Since it involves no constitutional bill of rights, or at least, no working and effective one, the majority-of-the-moment can and does vote away the rights of the minority-of-the-moment, even of a single individual. This has been called 'mob rule,' the 'tyranny of the majority' and many other pejorative names. It is one of the greatest threats to liberty, the reason why America's founding fathers wrote so much so disparagingly of pure democracy.
