How to use penalize in a sentence?

  1. Russell Moore:

    Anyone who cares an iota about religious liberty should denounce this reckless, demagogic rhetoric, the government should close the borders to anyone suspected of even a passing involvement with any radical cell or terrorist network.

  3. Ryan Pack:

    Statute of limitations: Once a crime happens its apart of history forever, it will never go away. Maybe memories fade, maybe witnesses die, maybe evidence gets lost, destroyed, tampered with, or expires but the crimes themselves never actually expire. Therefore they require justice. The only time there should ever be a limitation on charging a crime is if there's not enough truth, facts, and evidence to support it. You don't ever want to convict innocent people of crimes they never committed, you don't ever want to unjustly penalize people. As long as there's enough truth, facts and evidence to support the crime then just penalties should be administered to the appropriate people no matter if its been a 100 plus years since the crime took place. If there's no justice for the crime in life then justice is required for the crime in the afterlife. Either way it go's justice is required for the crime.

  4. Basil Liakakos:
