How to use pair in a sentence?

  1. David HeathHeath:

  2. Mayor Carey Davis:

    I think that message that has been put forth is that we do need to be observant and we need to make sure we're not in a position where we are afraid to call something out if we see there’s something that’s out of order or something that doesn't look like it's in place. That's not always an easy thing to do, because there's always that risk of making an improper assessment of something that may appear to be dangerous and really there's good reason behind it, while we believe the pair were radicalized, inspired by ISIS, in carrying out their attack, we continue to investigate whether they had support in any way. To date, we have not charged anyone with supporting the 12/2 attacks, however. The evidence supports the fact that Farook and Malik were responsible for physically carrying out the murders.

  3. Lauren Leander:
