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?'.

  3. Madison Police Chief Mike Koval:

    He was unarmed. That's going to make this all the more complicated for the investigators, for the public to accept.

  4. Paul Hammond:

    I believe the national attention would have been quicker responding (if Zachary was black), i think all young lives matter, not just black or white. An unarmed teenager, it should matter just as much.

  5. Ben Crump:

    It's just so unconscionable and unbelievable... that within 10 miles(of) the trial regarding the killing of George Floyd is taking place that a police officer would yet again kill another unarmed Black man, if ever there was a time in America where the police should be on their greatest behavior.
