How to use screech in a sentence?

  1. Batman:

    Gotham has fallen silent. The night is no longer broken by the sounds of crime. Children are no longer waken by the sudden crack of a gunshot. There are no more cries in the darkness. No tires screech as wailing sirens chase desperate men and women through narrow streets. In a way it is a Gotham I've always dreamed of. But this is no dream. This is a perversion. This is a nightmare. It is the silence of fear. A silence only broken by the sound of marching feet. A sound that echoes around the world. Marching feet. The rhyme of dictators. Our world is ruled by iron fist of the man of steel.

    The new American finds his challenge and his love in the traffic-choked streets, skies nested in smog, choking with the acids of industry, the screech of rubber and houses leashed in against one another while the town lets wither a time and die.
