Glasgow Pollok Man who touched himself while staring at teenage girls banned from buses, anyone fancy canvassing him for Glasgow Council Election?
There are some weird people walking about the place.
Take Gordon Trussler for example, 60 years old and banned from using public transport for six months.
What did he do?
Well, Mr. Trussler was caught on camera touching his groin up on a bus while staring at a 15-year-old girl.
The girl using some quick thinking filmed him on her mobile phone during the incident in Glasgow on April 13, before showing the footage to police.
Police tracked him down, arrested him and prosecuted him.
Trussler, of Pollok, Glasgow, pled guilty at an earlier hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court to breaching the peace by rubbing his groin over his clothes while staring at one girl and by touching himself in the presence of another.
The Court sentenced him to a three year community payback order.stuck him on the sex offenders register and he must take in a community based group for sex offenders and cannot use public transport for six months.
In the old days, you could get on public transport and just enjoy the ride, not now.
Using public transport isn’t an enjoyable experience, noise, drunks, druggies, people trying to get on using fake or out of date tickets, people smoking despite the ban and now sexual perverts getting their jollies while being chauffeured about the place.
I was on a bus in July 2010 when a woman took a heart attack which I blogged on, the bus pull over, half the people done a runner, the driver stood with his hands in his pockets, the rest of the passengers remained in their seats as two people put her on the floor.
Realising that no one was going to help her, I jumped up and started CPR until the ambulance arrived.
Out of circa 25 people, I was the only one to act.
We live in a society falling apart, were standards are just buzz words to fool the gullible.
Passing sentence Sheriff John Beckett QC told Trussler:
"I don't know why you did these things but what you did was disgraceful conduct in a public place involving in both cases young people."
One can only wonder what his neighbours in Pollok must think.
