desperado (noun) a daring criminal.

A reckless criminal or outlaw is a desperado. A desperado is a dangerous criminal who is very violent and does not care about what happens to him or to others. Fearful consequences or the thought of severe punishments do not stop him.

  • The desperado's recklessness can be imagined from the fact that he whisked away the young girl on his bike daring the hail of polices bullets. Fortunately, the girl was not injured.
  • Wanted in a number of crimes, and with a price on his head, the desperado was sighted by the police yesterday and was shot at as he was attempting a bank robbery.
