We were raised in the same generation.  Now, people are entitled because they want it.  There are a lot of things I want, I work for them, not expect others to give them to me.  Stealing us stealing.  It's not yours, you don't get to just take it. No one is responsible for their actions anymore, it's everyone else's fault.   Society has really taken a nose dive.

ban her and everyone who was with her to ever enter Italy again. too bad they no longer chop hands of thieves, she really deserves it for vandalizing ancient site. 

when i was in Greece, it was very common for tourists to take small rocks from acropolis site.. i talked to a local there, he said gvmnt brings truckload of similar rocks, once in a while and dumps it on the site, if they did not all rocks would be gone by now.

And her father and sister didn't stop her? There's no way I would have attempted anything remotely like that in front of my Dad. Whew!
