They then went on the run, leading to more death and destruction. Dzhokhar ran over Tamerlan in order to get away from the cops, brother betraying brother, and Tamerlan dies. No honor.

These are some pretty grave ones, not "jaywalking."
* Dennis Hall, for [[WouldHurtAChild shooting]] [[OffingTheOffspring his son Adrian]] [[DisproportionateRetribution because his toy interfered with his television reception]] in the presence of his two other daughters, was convicted of murder (for which he was sentenced to death)... and also two counts of cruelty to children (for [[ForcedToWatch shooting his son in the view of his two sisters]]), and of discharging a firearm near a public street. * In Montana, [[http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1314&dat=19880604&id=qb5YAAAAIBAJ&sjid=6O8DAAAAIBAJ&pg=5224,1725283 Kristofor Hans]] got sentenced to [[LongerThanLifeSentence 206 years]] for killing and attempting to kill people in his school: 100 year for murder, 100 other years for attempted murder and two sentences of three years each for using weapons during the commission of a felony. * When the French government sent agents to bomb the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior in New Zealand in 1985, two agents were caught before they left the country.

* The 2005 Atlanta mass murderer Brian Nichols was charged with every crime he committed (54 of them) during the killing spree he committed after he escaped from jail: murder, kidnapping, robbery, aggravated assault on a police officer, battery, theft, carjacking, rape and escape (even though conviction of the murders alone guaranteed him life in prison without parole or the death penalty if convicted). The prosecution claimed it was under the belief that he shouldn't get off on anything for the sake of convenience.
