While i can not condone this behaviour.. i suppose i can understand it.

Beer prices have gotten out of control! …as has every other thing in this country!
They are all over-inflated, because of the governments inability to understand economics & the interaction it has with its dependents.

Now my flippin’ case of beer went from $15.25 to $19.25!
It surely hasn’t gotten $4.00 better..

…sucks to have morals.. ’cause i really don’t want to switch from IPS’s to light beers, which is like robbing from MYSELF!

Hopefully the Suspect(s) only stole Bud Light….that way the Gas Station isn’t really out much.
