“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

A large fine, like 10-15k each and banished from Italy for a decade would be a fair punishment imo.
Jailtime?? wtf? It's a non-violent crime that did very little to the actual structure of the building.
Jail is not a joke... it's something that can very easily ruin your life... No one should have their life ruined for etching their name onto a building with a coin. You can lose your job, your livelihood, future employment, physiological harm, cruel treatment, your relationships, molestation, and puts your life in jeopardy.
Jail gets thrown around waaay too often...
