How to use unjust in a sentence?

  1. Sarah Leah Whitson:

    Dozens of judges perceived to oppose the new order have found themselves targeted for investigation or forced to retire, and those hand-picked to handle high-profile political or national security cases have issued blatantly unjust rulings, including mass death sentences, these conditions ensure that Egypt's judges will feel free to rule only one way.

  2. Chevy Chase:

    It was unjust and it was uncalled for. Some of the language was inexcusable and unacceptable, and I was not going to just sit there and take it.

  3. Plato:

  4. Robert Piper:

    I see this extraordinarily inhuman and unjust process of strangling gradually two million civilians in Gaza that really pose a threat to nobody.

  5. Noah Webster:

    Another source of power in government is a military force. But this, to be efficient, must be superior to any force that exists among the people, or which they can command; for otherwise this force would be annihilated, on the first exercise of acts of oppression. Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.
