Alcohol Abuse

A 32-year-old Milwaukee, Wisc., man has very strong feelings about alcohol, and he apparently used a metal pipe to express his sentiments. The man approached a beer truck at a grocery store and ordered the deliverymen to stop their delivery. When they ignored him, he allegedly began swinging a metal pipe at the canned beer, scolding them for bringing “poison” into his neighborhood. About $2,000 worth of product was destroyed. “He beat on the beer for about a half hour,” said store owner Nirmal Singh. “Then he got tired and sat down against the wall and waited for the police.” While the beer bashing was going on, several passers-by helped themselves to cases of beer. (MS/Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) ...Yet no one thought to aid the innocent victims of the ongoing and senseless violence.
