Answer- The phrase Syc Semper Tyrannis(thus to all tyrants). Supposedly said by Brutus, John Wilkes Booth and this was written on the t-shirt born by Timothy McVeigh while he was arrested. Cracked by Kaushik and Rahul Raghuraman


Kaushik said...

The connection is the phrase - Sic semper tyrannis meaning "thus always to tyrants".

Timothy McVeigh (top pic) was wearing a T-shirt with this phrase and a picture of Lincoln (second pic) on it when he was arrested on April 19, 1995, the day of the Oklahoma City bombing

The phrase is attributed to Marcus Junius Brutus, the most famous figure in the assassination of Julius Caesar on March 15, 44 BCE (third pic)

Not sure that this is right, but terrorist/assassination plots? Timothy McVeigh was in the Oklahoma City bombing, Abe Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Boothe, and Caesar was killed by a bunch of Romans.
