Western countries would never allow foreigners to behave so far apart from local norms. Chinese have been much too lenient towards inapropriate behavior of Westerners in China. I'm European myself, and I never even go to Sanlitun or Wudaokou bars, because I'm ashamed to be from the same culture as those stupid drunkards.

I am a European and was recently in Beijing and experienced the city and the inhabitants as very pleasant. this British tourist is an exception.

It is shameful for anyone to get drunk and then commit disrespectful acts and crimes like showing obscene gestures and molesting. This is even worst if it is a tourist visiting another country. In this case, this man had tarnished the good name of British people. Shame on him.

Is there something as innocent until proven guilty?
