THIS AND THAT
On 29 March 1951, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage.
Conspiracy is such an interesting concept. Even though you haven't actually done anything, you thought about it, or talked revolution and that is enough.
On 5 April 1951, Ethel and Julius were sentenced to death. The sentence was later carried out.
Interestingly, on this same date in 1895, Oscar Wilde lost his criminal libel case against the Marquess of Queensberry.
Mumia Abu-Jamal sits in prison still, with a death sentence on his head.
And the beat goes on......
