Racial abuse.

Mrs Rees, 43, told magistrates she was shocked to hear him shout “Sieg Heil” and other abuse at the woman through his open car window.

She told the court: “He was shouting. To me it appeared that he was being venomous. His face appeared quite contorted.”

No victim came forward.

An anti-racism body has described the conviction of a BNP member for racial abuse despite the victim not coming forward as a “landmark” case.

The only witness:

“But I could not swear to the words I did hear.”

and the guy still gets a guilty verdict.

(Robert) McGlynn was fined £200 and ordered to pay £200 costs.

I didn’t realise the crminal courts had gone from ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ to the civil courts ‘on the balance of probability’.
Well I suppose it’s the next step from ASBO’s, prosecuting people on hear say (as appossed to persecuting people with hear’say, which would be f****ng awful!)
