How did Samuel Adams get on the King's most wanted list?
Samuel Adams was very vocal about America gaining it's freedom from England. He wrote numerous letters that were shared with the American public. He also was an instigator by telling those who rebelled against the Stamp Act what to do to make an impression on the British. He reminded all that the Colonies were being taxed without legal representation.
First of all, Adams was a politician, he was infuriated by Parliament and their refusal to represent the colonies in their meetings. Furthermore, he was an avid publicist of the Sons of Liberty, a patriot group that fought against British occupation, famously known for the Boston Tea Party. He frequently published articles that exposed the brutality of the British regulars in Boston. He was recognized for treason and the King did not like the trouble that was brewing.

Answer . \nJohn Hancock was on the King's wanted list because he was one of the men who signed the declaration of independece, in fact he was the first person to sign it.
Little is known of Adams's boyhood, and what little is known comes from the comprehensive three-volume biography his great-grandson William V. Wells later wrote. Little other information on Adams's early years has been found. He studied at the Boston Latin School for eight years, learning Latin and …Greek. Adams, like most of the sons from Boston's elite, entered Harvard College in 1736 at the age of fourteen. Although his father had expected him to pursue the ministry, it quickly became obvious that Adams had little interest in following his father to the pulpit. Adams progressed through college without distinguishing himself in any way. He was disciplined once by Harvard for sleeping through morning prayers, and he was ranked fifth in the class of twenty-two when ranked by the social standing of his parents. He studied arithmetic, metaphysics, Latin, Greek, rhetoric and other subjects-but he remained surprisingly weak in literature throughout his life. During his junior year, Adams's father lost most of the family's money in a bad business deal, and Adams was forced to work the rest of his way through school by serving as a waiter in the college dining hall. The city fined him five shillings during his senior year when he was caught drinking in public. While Adams attended college, the Great Awakening swept over New England. The evangelist George Whitefield arrived in Massachusetts, and he deeply affected many of Harvard's men. He worked to convert many of the students to the gospel, and when he left in 1740 it was said that little but "voices of prayer and praise" could be heard on campus. In fact, Whitefield was able to reverse the growing trend throughout Boston of indulging in drink and fine clothes. (MORE)

There was no "Most Wanted" list in the 1920s. The first FBI list of "10 most Wanted Fugitives" was issued in March 1950.
I assume that you mean ciminal activity when you use the phrase "deceptive practice". The most likely behavior of a deceptive nature to land you on the FBI list of most wanted is traitorism. However, the lists consist of people who have not been apprehended and lately, the traitors have been capture…d first and then revealed.. A closely related crime that would certainly have you added to the list is domestic terrorism. The list currently contains a few of these. (MORE)

The http://www.answers.com/topic/federal-bureau-of-investigation field offices send names of candidates to the Bureau's Criminal Investigative Division (CID). Special Agents of the CID and the Office of Public Affairs then review the list and send their suggestion to the CID's Assistant Director a…nd then to the FBI's Deputy Director, who has final approval. The FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list appeared for the first time sixty years ago today. It grew out of a newspaper article that had been written for the http://www.answers.com/topic/international-news-service , about the "toughest guys" the FBI was trying to apprehend. Positive feedback from the article prompted then Director http://www.answers.com/topic/j-edgar-hoover to establish the http://www.answers.com/topic/fbi-ten-most-wanted-fugitives list. The goal was to get the names and faces of particularly dangerous fugitives before the public, which was then asked to provide any information that would lead to the arrest of these felons. Over the years, some 150 of the over 490 fugitives listed have been captured thanks to public assistance. (MORE)

Adams was very rebellious against the English governance of the colonies, and probably did more than any other man to keep the colonists aware of the bad thins that the English were doing in America. His leadership led to the meetings among representatives of all 13 colonies, and he was pro…bably a little responsible for the Boston Tea Party. Samuel Adams could well have been called the Father of the United States. (MORE)
Adams was not directly involved. The Son's of Liberty were organized and supported by two of the biggest smugglers in the colonies. They were Hancock and Hamilton and they were involved in smuggling items into the colonies. One of those was Dutch tea and until the British started tinkering with the …price of tea they were doing very well, but the tax on the British tea was LOWERED so this made the price of the Dutch tea HIGHER. So, they arranged to have the boxes of tea thrown into Boston Harbor. This was an economic issue and not a political one and it makes sense when you think about it. (MORE)
