How to use prisoner in a sentence?

  1. Pamela Anderson:

    It’s crazy that Julian is still being held as a political prisoner — after the UN has stated (and recently for a second time) that there is no reason for his detention and has ordered that the UK and Sweden release him, julian is an editor and a publisher.

  2. Ryan Pack:

    Freedom of expression: It's an obstruction of justice when one is not able and allowed to express himself justly, he becomes a prisoner.

  3. Edward R. Murrow:

    Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices - just recognize them.

  4. Nancy Saslow:

    His life is work, he’s had several jobs in prison. He works at construction, he works at a number of other things. He facilitates a men’s group, which is more or less a hospice group… He paints a great deal. His paintings are quite extraordinary, especially for someone who is untrained. However, Saslow made it clear Erik's attempt to move on doesn't eliminate the fact he commited a terrible crime against his own parents. I don’t want to paint him as Saint Erik, but I will tell you, this is someone I have heard the California Department of Corrections [say] they have no problems with [him]… basically a model prisoner, she said. I think he does what he can… to find some sort of peace.

  5. Jack McCain:

    Donald Trump has to understand he's running to be the commander in chief of the United States military, when you're doing so, if an individual gets rolled up and becomes a prisoner of war, then is he going to abandon them simply because he doesn't like people who are captured? I think that's a pretty inflammatory statement for somebody who is trying to be the commander-in-chief of the United States military.
