    US tourists caught carving names into Rome’s Colosseum

    Two California women break away from tour group to scratch their initials into ancient amphitheatre, where defacing walls is strictly forbidden

    Tourists are once again getting into trouble in Italy, with two American women caught carving their names into Rome’s Colosseum.
    The Californians, aged 21 and 25, snuck away from their tour group on Saturday and began scratching their initials into the amphitheatre with a coin. They managed a “J” and an “N” around 8cm high, before taking a selfie with their handiwork.

    Police were quick to catch the two Americans and report them for damaging the ancient site. The women may now go in front of a judge and face a penalty.
    I hope they do jail time. Dumbasses.

    I don't know about jail time but a freaking stiff fine and confiscating their passports until they pay it seems reasonable. It's people like this who shouldn't have facebook accounts and mobile phones with cameras.
    “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.

    Desecrating a ruin is the ultimate disrespect. They should be banned from foreign travel period.

    Realistically under what US law could they be banned from foreign travel? I would guess Italy could ban them from entering their country if they so chose.....

    hmmmmmmm, what would the penalty be, lex talionis?

    a 25k fine should be considered tame in comparison
