How to use stabbing in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    When I was growing up in a small village in India, the fairy-tales and children's stories led me to believe that villains and bad guys look like monsters, and they are really very rude and crude in their behavior. The movies during my generation also strengthened that perception. As I grew up and travelled around the world, I soon realized the reality that the bad guys and villains are often good looking, well-behaved, silky smooth and sharp and smart etc....often too smart to gain your complete confidence before their brutal betrayal and deceitfully back-stabbing you - when you least expect it. We all discover this harsh reality hard way, after getting entangled at least once in their tantalizing tangled web of deception, that the appearances can often be deceptive, and always too good to be true. And yet, not all the times but only occasionally, the dreamer and optimist inside us still likes to believe those fairy-tales and the happy-ending movies from childhood....

  2. George Okrepkie:

    All of the sudden, the guy was just on top of the elderly man doing a stabbing motion, just hitting him over the head, within seconds, blood was all over the [victim].

  3. Robert Hanlon:

  4. Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked:

    If people with knives were roaming the streets of New York and started stabbing people, they would not be asked to present their ID's, and the NYPD would draw their weapons, the U.S. administration can say whatever it wants - and we will do what is needed.

  5. Henry Hildebrandt:

    They are now stabbing them in the back left and right, whether it's the TSA workers, or the police, or the firemen, or the doctors, or the nurses.
