How to use riots in a sentence?

  1. Gwen Carr:

    The riots have been so beautiful, so nicely done, and peace is the message. We don't want any violence but keep on moving on.

  2. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:

    The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.

  3. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy:

    What I talked to President Trump about, I was the first person to contact President Trump when the riots was going on, he didn't see it. What he ended the call was saying -- telling me, he'll put something out to make sure to stop this. And that's what he did, he put a video out later.

  4. Mark McCloskey:

    It’s just more of those rules for thee, but not for me, the left is using the mob specifically to intimidate people, and they’re specifically moving into nice neighborhoods where people don’t expect to have riots and mobs attack them specifically to make people know that you can’t be safe anywhere. That we’ll come and get you at any place and at any time if you have the guts to stand up.

  5. General Mattis:
