“He drew antennae onto politicians' posters and underneath he wrote they are liars, thieves, and corrupt whores. One of his colleagues – also a bus driver – turned him in. The judge in his trial was the wife of one of the defamed politicians. He destroyed private property! He paid 15,000 crowns in damages, but refused any additional punishment. “I have nothing to atone for!” Roman Smetana called out in court. He got 100 days.
