Sic semper tyrannis is a Latin phrase meaning "thus always to tyrants". It is sometimes mistranslated as "death to tyrants."

This Latin phrase became well known because John Wilkes Booth shouted the words on the stage of Fords Theater after he had shot President Lincoln. He jumped onto the stage from the Presidential box and injured his leg.
