This page is about the slang term whack
to murder, esp. within the context of organised crime
- There's a contract out to whack Tony B. because he'd whacked Jimmy S., and he'd whacked Jimmy because Jimmy had whacked Paulie T., and so on.
- If those Mafia informers don't get protection, they'll be whacked for sure.
This is typically used in American English but may be used in other varieties of English too.
