Hibs fan caught singing racist song on a train by off-duty policeman

STEPHEN ROGERS launched into a vile song as Hibs supporters celebrated winning their Scottish Cup semi-final in April but yards away was off-duty PC Andrew Sinclair who reported him to British Transport Police officers.


A HIBS fan sang a racist chant on a train – not realising an off-duty policeman was sitting yards away.
Stephen Rogers, 45, launched into his song as Hibernian supporters celebrated winning their Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen in April.
He shouted, swore and sang: “You’re welcome in Edinburgh unless you’re a Paki, Jambo or Jew.”
Off-duty PC Andrew Sinclair, 45, told a court how he told one of the fans to tell the others they were out of order.
He then went to two British Transport Police officers who had got on to the Glasgow to Edinburgh train.
Decorator Rogers, of Restalrig, Edinburgh, was found guilty of racist abuse after a trial at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
He was ordered to do 100 hours’ community work.

1 comMENTS:

100 hours' community work for singing a song? What on earth is wrong with people... I bet if a black person were singing any type of disprespectful song, noone would say a thing against it.
