How to use unarmed in a sentence?

  1. Hennepin County Judge Regina Chu:

    This is not a cop found guilty of murder for using his knee to pin down a person for nine minutes as he gasped for air, this is not a cop found guilty of manslaughter for intentionally drawing his firearm and shooting across his partner to kill an unarmed woman as she approached his car. This is a cop who made a tragic mistake. She drew her firearm thinking it was a Taser, and ended up killing a young man.

  2. Gwendolyn Berry:

    My heart was broken. Here is this young man — another young man — that’s just killed, unarmed and killed. It made me question, ‘Why is this becoming a thing?'.
