wikipedia notes: Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were two Italian-born American anarchists, who were arrested, tried, and executed via electrocution in the American state of Massachusetts. There is much controversy regarding their guilt, stirred in part by Upton Sinclair's 1928 novel Boston. Critics of the trial have accused the prosecution and trial judge of allowing anti-Italianism, anti-immigrant, and anti-anarchist sentiment to influence the jury's verdict.
