Maybe they weren't stealing it. Maybe they were protecting it. I mean, it sounds like the guy filming ran over a few cans. That's what's messed up.

If an armored car tipped and spilled $100 bills all over the road, then I might be tempted to grab me some.

Voted no.

Most likely, that beer would get dumped by the distributor.

The only "if" I will throw out there is.... IF the truck had been removed, and the road cleaned up, but there were still a bunch of full, unbroken bottles or cans lying down in the ditch, seemingly abandoned, THEN AND ONLY THEN, I would volunteer to pick up the straggling beers and give them a new home. BUT we're talking after several hours, potentially even the next day, at the point at which these items are no longer "property" per se so much as they are a "nuisance" and, well frankly, litter.

Any other circumstances - nah. Regardless of what beer it is. Why put myself in danger just to steal? Doesn't make sense.

By the way. 999 posts. Just gotta make it till 5, then to the pub, then to my poker game, THEN you all get your treat.

Preface:
We don't know the whole story.

An equally plausable theory, in line with BM's, is that the moment the crash happened that all of the load was damaged goods. The amount of beer on the truck should have been a known quantity. The driver might have been instructed to clean up the scene and get out.

For all we know the distributor's main goal might be to avoid fines for littering and obstructng traffic. The driver may instructed others to take what they wanted.

I would be, too. Quite a bit, I imagine. In fact, I bet I pick some up. Then, I hope I have the strength of character I like to think I have to give them back right then, as I was only picking them up to do so.

Theft is theft. If you steal, you are a thief. I don't care if it's good beer, crappy beer, or a bag of marbles. It certainly makes no difference if other folks are stealing at the same time, either. Theft is theft. If you steal, you are a thief.

Never seen that stuff before, but no one likes to distribute to MN for some reason. The only canned craft brew that I've had that was decent is Surly.
