Poll #977461 Biggest person of the 21st century assassinated so far?

Do Dimebag Darrell and Jam Master Jay count, despite the lack of political motivation?

No. Isn’t that the standard definition?
Again with the standards. Count them.

Taking your answers, leaving the two musicians and the fuzzy grey area conspiracies out...

Alexander Litvinenko
Filemón Lagman
Theo van Gogh
Rafik Hariri
Ahmed Shah Massoud
Paul Klebnikov
Pim Fortuyn

I know the century's still young

But I think people have to step things up here, or else the 21st century will have considerably less interesting assassinations overall than the 20th.

See...I'd participate in this...except I have NO idea who any of these people are.

Ask me about the most important American assination was in the 20th, 19th, or hell, even the 18th centuries, and I could give you an answer and back it up. But, in the past 7 years? I have no clue.

Ask me again in 2050. :)

Assassination implies ideological or political motivation, so I'm not down with Jam Master Jay and Dimebag. Sorry, man.

Litvenenko, only if investigations eventually lead back to Putin, and only if the Russian people actually start caring...

I think you can assassinate for personal gain or grudge...

according to wikipedia: "Assassination is the murder of a political figure or another important individual."

Jam Master Jay was certainly important in his community... he was paying people's rents. If a Somali warlord who rules a neighborhood can be assassinated then so can Jay...

Mr. Sprague, if you actually read your original post you would have saw this line that YOU wrote:

"Doesn't matter if they were a political or entertainment figure."

It was your poll, you set the parameters to be played within.

"Doesn't matter if they were a political or ENTERTAINMENT figure."
