When I lived in London, I noticed that bus drivers would tend to wave you on board if you looked like someone who could afford the fare but maybe forgot your travel card or similar. If you seemed to be genuinely poor - as in, didn't have the fare because you were broke - they wouldn't.

Our criminal justice system is a bit like that
A former Halliburton manager was sentenced Tuesday to one year of probation for destroying evidence in the aftermath of BP's massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
