List Rules Only assassins who were executed by the State

List Of Executed Assassins: Here is a list of the World's most gruesome assassins, executed by law. For these assassins, death penalty put an end to their shameful life. Capital punishment is banned in some places, yet people believe that these executed assassins deserved to die this way. None of these assassins with capital punishment were pardoned in the end.

You'll notice some of the most famous assassins of all time on this list. Assassins like David Herold, George Atzerodt, Lewis Payne and George Atzerodt have something in common: they all attemped to kill Abraham Lincoln. While John Wilkes Booth may have fired the shot that finally took down the 16th president, these men tried to kill Lincoln before. For their crimes, they were all executed. The same goes for Charles Guiteau, who assassinated James A. Garfield, and Leon Czolgosz, who took down William McGinley. When you assassinate or are part of a conspiracy to assissinate a U.S. President, the price you pay will be death.

The key to this list is that the assassin had to be executed by the State. That's why you won't see someone like the aforementioned John Wilkes Booth on here. Though he was the man who assassinated Lincoln, he wasn't captured and sentenced to be executed by the United States government. He was killed in a standoff. While technically constitutes an executed assassin, for this, it doesn't count.

You can sort this list by any column and give your opinion about giving capital punishment to assassins.
