The Last Beer

[Senseless Acts of Violence] Given the deadly outcome of this fight--the homicide victim's family members are saying it was sparked by an altercation over two stolen cases of beer--I couldn't help but recall something a Minneapolis police lieutenant said to me during an interview 18 years ago:

"People will kill each other over who took the last beer in the fridge. I wish I had a dollar for every call I've been on that started with a fight over the last beer. I'd be rich." (Holly Mullen)


  1. This is the pits when party goers can't even have fun without some societal degenerates shooting someone, after they stole beer from the party

  2. Beer. Really? I don't even know where to start on this. There's nothing to say to, or about, a jackass that would do such a thing over beer (Utah beer nonetheless).

    The horror.

  3. Fighting over Dom Perignon or Veuve Clicquot I could understand..but that watery 3.2 Utah beer ... Just depravity....
