Hope the jailers are paid well to have to listen to that for six months.

For assault? No way. She deserves that and more. Personally, six months in stir might teach her entitled butt a thing or two.

OK, so she's a British citizen. Anyone want to guess what her ethnic origin is?

I don't think it requires much "guessing."

As to the relevance of her ethnicity... What is it? Do Arab women slap more young men than others?

Do other countries have such a specif title used to describe their poorly behaved citizens? It seems like more often then not, it is Americans being called out. Even though, like you wrote, there are idiotic people everywhere.
Eurotrash?

I have traveled extensively. There are many countries whose citizens behave badly in foreign countries.

When it comes to 'ugly Americans' or any other nationality; I think many of our reality TV programs hurt more than help. You can see our rich and famous acting like asses in fancy hotels and on expensive cruises. Money does not entitle anybody to disrespect another country or even the rules set by sea captains. When you are at sea or in another country; you have to abide by their laws. My feeling is that many tourist simply don't care; and plan to do whatever they feel like doing. That doesn't always work when one leaves the territorial waters of their home nation.

There are countries with no tolerance to any illegal drugs. Some have no tolerance for alcohol. Some countries simply operate differently than we do. Back in the 1970s I went to Mexico City and, while there, bought a new wallet. I did not think about it and went through my old wallet and threw out some of the old cards I no longer used. A group of us were going on a trip that day and before we were started the police, with automatic weapons, stopped the bus and wanted to know who threw out old ID cards. I explained to them that I just bought a new wallet; but they insisted that I take my old cards with me. Apparently they were worried about identity theft long before our Country ever mentioned it. But I did not fight with the group of armed police or give them a hard time; I was smart enough to know that it could quickly turn into an 'extended' vacation. Tourist always have to remember that the rules that apply back home might not apply where they are currently at. They should also remember not to slap the authorities!

No one is saying otherwise.

Is that term used by anyone but Americans? Like in Cancun do the locals talk about the Ugly Americans?
