In February 1933, Giuseppe Zangara, a  bricklayer who didn’t  “like no peoples,” shot five people in Miami in an attempt to assassinate President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Sentenced to 80 years imprisonment for attempted murder, Zangara was quickly retried when one victim, Chicago Mayor Anton Cernak, died. Only 5 weeks after the attempted assassination, Zangara was electrocuted.
