Scottish criminal law is different from what I’m used to so I can’t comment on the intricacies of what goes on abroad (so to speak), but as obnoxious as I find MAIN’S behavior, I can’t help feeling that POLLOCK acted beyond his civic responsibilities in the circumstances.
Something to consider is that a visual recording of a section of an event does not usually amount to the entirety of what actually happened - so there might be other factors involved that we’re not privy to.
The relevant authorities clearly believe POLLOCK has a case to answer, but if it goes in-front of a jury I can well imagine them lacking the appetite to return a guilty verdict (appreciating the strange vagaries of a not proven possibility in Scottish law). Look at the views here for example - STW is obviously a microcosm of the public that could be called upon to compose a jury - not a great deal of unanimity is there! I wouldn’t bet on him being convicted that’s for sure.
It will be an interesting case to follow.
