And of course the JP/Sherrif/Jury can still find him not guilty depending on the court.

Double standards?? Maybe if the fare dodger had been "foreign" then Big guy would be now hailed as a hero by the establishment & not just us plebs.

He ain't in court yet, can't see this one proceeding as I doubt the procurator will decide its in the public interest and unlikely to secure a conviction.
However the tosser that go thrown off has also been reported to the procurator and awaiting a decision for charging. He may actually have the whole thing backfire on him after all..........
