"that is not true, the reality is that If you are American or Canadian soldier, neither Rome nor Paris can hold you before the court of Justice. It needs to be done the way we do it in North America. Capice!"

First it's capiche. Secondly, have you ever heard of proverbs? (not the bible chapter). they are used to explain to not-so-bright people the common ways of life.

And I am sorry but if you commit a crime in a foreign country, no canada laws or american laws are worth. "so don`t tell me that I should obey the European law and give my passport to some one who can steal it and run away."...

LOL, since he was a moroccan, he might run away, given the usual honesty of you muslims. But you are still wrong. If you fail to be identified you are going straight to police station.That's how it works...

"By the way, the French Gendarmerie guy started speaking impolitely trying to solve the problem and I asked him to either speak nice and clear or I will not talk to him until he calls my country`s mission.."

oooh, strange, didn't you say you're perfectly able to explain yourself in french?

"He spoke nicely with me, and badly with the rest.. we are not ignorants and we go to Europe as consumers, not economic refugees. "

sorry but a backpacker on a low coast bus from a moroccan dubious travel agency is not a good sign.

"In business we say, customer is the king! that is why we North Americans do it there the way we do it here.."

considering how you are here I pity your customers...
