As  funny or  pathetically sad  as  this  may be  is the fact that  we  still tolerate such absurdity  as  Kings, Princesses,  Dukes, Princes, and whatever other  silly names given to those still allowed  to retain such absurdities in  our so called modern society.

Basically  its a  license  to steal  and ironically  if a commoner was to try  to do the same thing in her so called  country  ~ imagine  the outcome  and  the many body parts that would and could be removed  for stealing.  http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2010/07/09/the-world-s-most-barbaric-punishments.html

 

Ironically  she  did the same thing only a  couple of  years ago ~  in that she stiffed several retail shops  on a shopping spree.

Sadly  she'll  continue  to do it again and again until someone stops her and  such absurdity.

Fool them  once  shame  on you, fool them over and over again, well I guess the Frenchies get what they deserve,  after all,  the arabs  have  surpassed  the French  in the way  they've learned  to surrender when  facing  certain death.

The  French at the hands of any invading boyscounts  as evidenced  during  the world wars  and  the middle easterners  when  they  encountered  US  troops.

To be fair, it's the rules of diplomatic immunity and diplomacy that you have issue with. The fact that certain countries use royal family members as diplomats is a side issue. Kim Jong-Il never claims royalty, and his diplomats won't be much better. 

For that matter, campaign contributions determine who becomes ambassadors in the US. Some of them are de facto criminals, like the guy who ran Ameriquest, the predatorial subprime mortgage company.

And one final point...the exact same rules keep our more-honest diplomats safe when they go to visit these other countries where the rule of law is far more nebulous. I'd say that's worth a few incidents, and better than the brief satisfaction it would be to pull a Danny Glover from Lethal Weapon 2.

Come on Ryan  you know  that scene  was a  good one,  so  if this princess was to  pull out  some  gernades and  fire-arms and was to start  killing  others,  would you still feel  like hey  lets  give them a pass and  politely  ask  for them to stop it.

I personally  loved  when that smug a$$ard   took  a bullet  to his head and  Danny  says " revoked !"

It's  ridiculous  that because  of  being  born  to  some camel family  that  idiots  have deemed  royalty and rulers  that   she  can get a pass  from weak as water  Frenchies.

A  criminal  is still a criminal  whether its an  American  or in this case  some   saudi  princess.

Anyways  I  was laughing my you know what off when  they called the police  and  she  kept on packing  probably taking  some bath towels with her  and  leaving the bill unpaid  by simply uttering  diplomatic  immunity.

Can't  wait  to read  the  stories  the next time.

Look for this behavior to spread.  It's human behavior to be less inclined to obey the law when there are numerous illustrations of lawlessness either being ignored or, in this case, rewarded.

I haven't looked too far into the story.  Didn't the French at least officially protest and eject her from the country and revoke her diplomatic credentials?  It's the least they should do.  If nothing else, it'd prevent a recurrence of such events in the future and serve notice to other countries' diplomats that the usual courtesies owed by guests to their host (such as respect and proper behavior) will be expected?

I'm just saying that in that situation, you could suddenly turn an evasion of justice into a large-scale hostage situation in the host country. If the rules aren't respected.   

But yes, one of the best one-liners in movie history
