The beyond a reasonable doubt standard

I didn’t hear anyone demand that standard. Personally, preponderance of evidence would have been OK with me.

But there wasn’t even that.

No one was trying to convict the man of a crime, they were supposed to be judging his fitness for court.

Exactly. And beyond the word of one person, there was no reason to judge him unfit.
