It depends ... how big are you?
Oo, quite big. As big as the Big Man, at least.

Come to think of it, would he have reacted if the swearing ticket-dodger were the same size, or bigger?

Talk of vigilantes, the London rights, the Swiss etc is way way way over the top and has no link whatsoever.
If you can't see why they are linked, but you want to talk about general breakdown of respect... then yes, you have no idea.

The difference is there was and always will be at some point in time situation like the London riots, that will never go away unfortunately. You are always going to have a minority.
What you have here is a young student, who from the reports in the media has never been in trouble before and is a 'decent' young boy but he shows zero respect for the people around him that is the difference.
As I said I think the conductor made the situation worse, although that may have been his instructions for handling this type of situation.

You think educating the public on what to do in these situations is going to help?

If you are being abusive and causing public disorder like he is then yes you are.
If it is during a conversation with your friends and there are children around then its wrong, completely wrong but not scum for doing it.
Are you implying that Ozzy's kids didn't turn out normal ...?
