The judge in their case harbored negative sentiments towards the two men, because of his own conservative Yankee Republican standing. Despite the support from many influential people such as Felix Frankfurter, Eugene Debs, Ben Shahn, John Dos Passos, and Edna St. Vincent Millay, large groups of people rallied against them. The conservatives of the time called for the death of the anarchist immigrants, and the nativists harped on the immigrant origins of the two men. Unfortunately, the two men, after having gone through an unfair trial, were found guilty in 1921. After many years of appeals and delays, Sacco and Vanzetti were put to death by electric chair on August 23rd, 1927.
The third plane hit the western side of the Pentagon, and the fourth plane was targeted at the U.S. capitol, but it crashed into a nearby field.

Alliances were made and the Nazi Low Riders (NLR) acted as errand boys to the Aryan Brotherhood” (Montaldo 1).
Al-Qaeda, the terrorist group that he founded in the early 1980’s, has been encouraging other minor terrorists to take action, making the world an over-all more dangerous place to live. Among his fellow terrorists, he is a revered hero, but all over the world, he is seen as a villain, a power-hungry monster greedy for power and attention.

The inquiry chaired by Dame Janet Smith has determined that Harold Shipman unlawfully killed 215 patients, and in a further 45 there were reasons for being concerned about the true cause of death.1 A statistical analysis gives a figure of 236.2 The first definite killing was in March 1975; the last was in June 1998. On average, there were around 10 killings a year, but the number was highly variable. Between 1990 and 1993 he killed only 3 people, but in 1996 he killed at least 30, and in 1997 at least 37, a rate of one killing every ten days. Yet even then, no concerns were raised officially until a courageous doctor from a neighbouring practice, together with her partners, began to think the unthinkable. In March 1998, by which time he had already killed well over 200 people, a police investigation was begun—but quickly abandoned.
For twenty years, theses deaths and disappearances were attributed to the so-called “Green River Killer,” which was an unidentified serial murderer (The Seattle). Detectives and forensic scientists reviewed hundreds of items of physical evidence and interviewed thousands of witnesses but the case remained unsolved until 2001. In 2001, the King County Prosecuting Attorney charged Gary Leon Ridgway with four of these murders because of DNA evidence (The Seattle). In the following year, additional forensic evidence led to three more murder charges. The seven charges implicated Ridgway in only a fraction of the Green River homicides.
During the jail break the prisoners killed the sheriff. After he was sprung from jail he made plans to raid several banks. He did lots of planning and even trial runs before he even attempted to rob the bank. His tactics included memorizing the bank and its distance from the police station.

Different gangs were constantly at war with each other. At age 20 Smedley was already a leader of the Texas Mafia. He says, “Men were bought, sold, prostituted, or beaten at my command.
The Zodiac killer was active in Northern California for ten months in the late 1960s. He killed at least five people, and injured two. He committed the first two murders with a pistol, just inside the Benecia border. In his second shooting in Vallejo, he attempted to kill two people, but one survived despite gunshots to the head and neck. 40 minutes later the police received an anonymous phone call from a man claiming to be their killer and admitting to the murders of the previous two victims.
