How to use warrant in a sentence?

  1. Jessica Molina:

    They came into my house, breaking the door. ... They pointed guns at me and my husband, and when they saw that I was an American citizen, I thought, 'They're going to kill me', they took him without an arrest warrant, even though he showed them he was working all day in his garage in Laredo, Texas.

  2. The FBI:

    Last month, the FBI obtained a search warrant to conduct a site survey underneath the Pulaski Skyway, on October 25th and 26th, FBI personnel from the Newark and Detroit field offices completed the survey, and that data is currently being analyzed. Because the affidavit in support of the search warrant was sealed by the court, we are unable to provide any additional information.

  3. The ACLU:

    While Officer Middleton’s actions may warrant some level of disciplinary action, it is particularly concerning he was more swiftly investigated and harshly punished for sharing non-critical information than officers who use excessive force against protesters or create the culture of racism and hostility Middleton reported to no avail.

  4. Stew Peters:

    I think it’s a bit ridiculous to need a degree, you learn to be a cop by being a cop and you don’t learn to be a bounty hunter in a classroom, either. The bounty hunter added that there should be more initial field training as a requirement. Warrant service is easily the most dangerous part of law enforcement.

  5. Jamarcus Glover:

    Louisville Metro Police are trying to make it out to be my fault and turning the whole community out here making it look like I brought this to Breonna's door, there was nothing never there or anything ever there, and at the end of the day, Louisville Metro Police went about it the wrong way and lied on that search warrant and shot that girl out there.
