    Is this for real? Stealing alcohol. Let us hope for the two accused that this is a misunderstanding.

    Did they really steal it or just drank it up and were so drunk they walked out and forgot to pay? Just asking.

    The court of public opinion.. as unforgiving as always.

    I suspect there is more to this than this particular man just up and walking out of bar with liquor with malicious intent.

    would like to hear his side.
