That was mentioned on Radio4 the other day and listeners were invited to send in other similar "complaints"
I can't remember them all, but one was inappropriate footwear and clothing for hill walking in "The Sound of Music"...

Heard this:

I hope that this guy gets lynched. It's times like this that are a stark reminder of the difference between the law and justice.

Seems to go against what you would expect from reading the evidence.
Don't understand 'six woman jury' :? Is that the entire jury?
