What happens if a assistant professor gets dismissed and not get tenured:?

I read on wiki "Assistant professor: An introductory level professor. A position generally taken after receiving PhD and/or completing a post-doctoral fellowship. After 4–8 years, assistant professors will be either tenured or dismissed from the university." what does this mean when they are dismissed? Does that simply mean that they don't get tenured and would have to get a non tenured professor job such as an instructor or a collegiate assistant professor? and if you get dismissed would you be able to try again?

Generally they go and try again at a lower-ranked university. Some never teach again depending on how big the surplus is for their PhD. The worst of them take jobs at University of Phoenix.

I suspect that in some cases they are hired at the same university for a lower rate as instructors or adjuncts. I'm guessing that some get jobs at other universities. Very few of them actually shoot their colleagues.
