31 Michael Brown

Was 18-years old when he became famous, not really eligible for this list, but is perhaps the most UN-inspiring person you could imagine. After robbing a store, he very justifiably got shot for attacking a police officer, then ignorant people decided it would be a good thing to start a riot over the incident.
