Sic semper tyrannis is a Latin phrase meaning “thus always to tyrants”. It is sometimes used as an implication of “death to tyrants” despite people believing it is being mistranslated.
The phrase is often said to have originated with Marcus Junius Brutus during the assassination of Julius Caesar, but according to Plutarch, Brutus either did not have a chance to say anything, or if he did, no one heard what was said
In the United States it is best known as the words John Wilkes Booth shouted during his assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
