The one who got kidnapped and got Stockholm Syndrome.

The one that ate those people.

The one that killed all those people. (The one that did it by charming & abducting them, and the one that did it by astrological signs, and any others you can think of.)

The one that robbed that bank. (Actually, I don't know any specific ones who robbed banks, but I'm sure someone can fill in the blanks.)

The one that rode in the front of the bus. (What, it was illegal at the time, so she's a criminal. No? Ok.)

That one that started that war under false pretenses and killed all those people in Texas. (What, he says he's above the law and it doesn't count? Oh. Ok.)

That record producer that killed his wife.

That gangsta rapper that... okay I don't know anything about gansta rappers.

That guy in that movie where they rob the rich guy by setting up a fake casino.

Those guys in that movie where they rob that casino, I think there were 11 of them.

That one that came over on that boat and started the whole damn thing. (What, he wasn't actually American and he wasn't technically a criminal? Damn you're strict about these things.)

That one that shot that president at/near that theater.

That one that forged all those checks and pretended to be an airline pilot.

Frank Abagnale is no criminal! He is a hero to one and all.

That guy, William Blythe III, who raped all those women.

I think we're looking at those who have at least been tried  in a court, or shot dead by the police.

Was Nixon tried in court?

Not quite, but he publicly confessed his crimes, and then was pardoned by President Ford Prefect before he could be tried, so I think that counts.

GWB is not (yet) famous as a criminal, so it might not occur to people (yet) to put him on this list.  Besides, I blame Cheney and Rove, personally.

Nixon resigned over the Watergate issue, saying (famously) "I am not a crook".  He was PARDONED by Gerald Ford.  So many people think he behaved in a criminal way, yes.

Whoa. That's spooky. I saw the film about him (Catch Me If You Can) just this weekend.

No. That would blow my whole Gates thing.

Reading comprehension is your friend.

"All guilty of treason against their rightful king"

This is actually a very good point and one that is often overlooked in civics class. The founding fathers really were terrorists in every sense. And yet I support their cause.
