He's a sadistic dictator, not a murderer. Heinrich Himmler and the rest of the Nazis were the ones who killed those Jews. - MKBeast

What he did was horrible (duh), but if we're not careful something like that will happen again. We can't let history repeat itself. Although in other places it already has.

Sadistic pig he should have been hanged. Too many innocent lives lost because of him

Dude had a 6 million kill streak dawg

2 Jack The Ripper "Jack the Ripper" was the alias of an unknown serial killer in Whitechapel, London who brutally murdered 5 women (mainly prostitutes) between August and November of 1888. To this day, he has remained a mysterious and popular phenomena among serial killers and popular media.

Hitler Didn't actually kill anyone himself, his army did. Jack The Ripper killed people himself. - gemcloben

He did kill some people that his army got and sent him to be killed - FerrariDude64

Like America's Zodiac Killer, Jack the Ripper was never caught nor identified. And he terrorized the city he lived in.

Unbelievable he is not #1 the most notorious

its jack the ripper. JACK THE RIPPER! why isn't he first? - manya93

3 Josef Stalin Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin was a Georgian dictator, and was the leader of the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. Holding the post of the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, he was effectively the dictator of the state.

What a disgusting person! This man killed a lot of people, he even killed his own parrot and he killed innocent people. He killed babies, kids, tweens, teenagers, college students, pregnant women, and elderly. He is totally the definition of mentally ill.

Stalin killed more people than Hitler
but Hitler killed people in a more horrible way - OzzyVanHalen

Stain made Hitler look like a choir boy.

He's worst than adolf

4 Charles Manson Charles Milles Manson (1934-2017) was an American criminal who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in the California desert in the late 1960s.

I've studied Charles Manson for many years. He believed that he didn't have an option to kill, but that so it had to be done. He believed it was told to him thru an old Beatles song and that it was God himself telling Charles to murder. He believed it so much that his expression of it started to make others believe it as well, hence "The Mason Family". It wasn't just him, he had tons of supporters, some whom belonged to other countries and refused to come forward during the trials.

He can still make the news 40 years later. - RdrTech

5 Pol Pot Pol Pot, born Saloth Sar, was a Cambodian revolutionary who led the Khmer Rouge from 1963 until 1997. From 1963 to 1981, he served as the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Kampuchea.

He ate children. Enough said...

7 Jeffrey Dahmer Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, was an American serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder, and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991, with many of his later murders also involving necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation more.

He did say at one of his trials that he's sorry for what he did, the victims' loved ones have every right to hate him, and that if he could give his own life to bring them back he would.

Cannibal, sick killer. Hitler, Joeseph Stalin, Charles Manson and Pol Pot are not murderers. They're manipulative, evil masterminds. Never killed any individually, and if they did, hardly notoriously.

He was necrophilic and a cannibal. He killed some of his victims by injecting hydrochloric acid into holes in their skulls that he drilled. He preserved their body parts. As a child he impaled a dog.

So sexy

Souldve been higher. he was a manipulative rapist killer who beat women for sex with their dead bodies. yes, hella sexy and charming, but he had a girlfriend while in prison and got love letters. he even got engaged to another woman. I will admit, he was extremely clever, especially when escaping. I'm studying him at the moment.

For a killer of 2, he was one of the sickest bastards the US has ever seen.

He only killed like 2 people in his life. But he was so obsessed with body parts that he would always go to cemeteries and dig up the corpses of dead women so that he could make a mask out of their skin.

Funfact: this was the inspiration for Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

this is almost a home state thing but also it was so sick that he should get 1 - justicerieth

Creepy dude. Thinking about what he did could make anybody almost throw up.

The mafia is pretty famous for, ya' know, killing people in horrifying ways. Dropping a person in a lake with cement shoes, beatings, shootings, an entire country held in a state of perpetual terror at the idea of an unfulfilled debt... To be at the head of all that power... it's gotta mean that you're some shade of an evil frucking murderer.

45 Jodi Arias

What Jodi Arias did was shocking & Inhumane. You would never believe that someone who looks as cute as her, committed a crime as appalling as the murder she committed. The media portrays her to be A Psycho and obsessive Which she probably is, But I don't know her personally so I can't say that. But All though what she did to Travis Alexander was disgusting & completely evil. I can't help but feel kinda sorry for her, Like He was using her for sex for a couple of years. She thought they had something more serious than a friends with benefits relationship, she wanted more than to be his booty call. She wanted to be his actual girlfriend, his wife, she was infatuated & head over heels in love with him. He knew how she felt & that she was crazy about him, It kind of makes you think like why didn't he just stop having sex with her? It's "sort of" taking advantage of someone when A Person really loves someone & knows how they feel but that person keeps using them for sex anyway. ...more

People are shading over how bad he was yes he did kill 200 people and yes it was with a hotel but how he did it is in his hotel there were no Windows hallways made into mazes human sized trash shoots and ovens but what I think is coolest is the doors that once you go in them you can't go back through

He was a greedy con artist/ murderer who killed his victims in gas chambers. Then he stripped the flesh from their bodies and sold them to medical schools. And he murdered with no conscience whatsoever.

He killed 200 people in a matter of a couple years, he killed most of the people in a huge house called the 'castle' in Chicago, Illinois. He was one of the first serial killers in American history, also one of the most notorious
