    Sounds to me like a good reason for Brits to avoid going to the country.

    That's surprising, considering you want us to become like them. Frankly I'd like to see these kinds of arrests occur to liberals, to teach them a lesson.

    Don't know what that is(though recycling is overrated), we already have SSN, and biochips are creepy.

    Hey look, I don't fit your predetermined mold for me. Though I'm sure you'll forget this, and project unto me all the things Beck, and Hannity told you to believe about us "evil" liberals.

    Not surprising. I wish my mind could work like yours so I could say all conservatives are for thought police. But I can't even bring myself to do it.

At a later date I asked the girl at the counter why, and she bluntly said because the woman was British and they had seen a rise in Brits stealing.

    I think if the US did that to black patrons, patrons from other countries there would be a ****load of discrimination lawsuits.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yep, never said it was the right thing to do here, but that is the reality of the situation more than often. Of course that does not mean every single brit gets checked and only brits. Spanish get checked too and others that look "odd" so to say. And it aint a uniquely Spanish thing, by any means.

    Many UK criminals fled to Southern Spain. Marbella, Fuengirola, Benalmadena, Torremlinos, are all hotbeds of crime.
