Queen Elizabeth II was shot with 6 blank rounds by a youth.
The prank was committed by Marcus Sarjeant. On this day the queen was riding a horse when she was fired at. The queen managed to keep her horse under control, and when Sarjeant was questions he stated "I wanted to be famous. I wanted to be a somebody."
US Supreme Court declared the start of informing potential criminals of their rights. These became known as the Miranda rights.
It all started in 1963 when a suspect unaware of his rights got caught out in a confession which he retracted. Now any potential criminal must be told "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can, and will, be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you".
