Idaho inmates blame alcohol producers for their crimes. Sue for 1 billion!

EbolaBears Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013

“If I was not an alcoholic, the shooting would never have happened” -Jeremy Brown

“At no time in my life, prior to me becoming an alcoholic, was I ever informed that alcohol was habit forming and addictive.”
-Jeremy Brown

The inmates claim the companies are responsible for their crimes and should have put warning labels on their products.


That's right. Jeremy Brown didn't shoot someone, Jim Beam did.


Five Idaho inmates are blaming alcohol for the crimes that put them in prison and are suing some of the nation’s top liquor and wine companies for $1 billion.

Keith Allen Brown, Steven Thompson, Woodrow Grant, Cory Baugh and Jeremy Brown all claim that alcohol led them to their crimes and they should have been warned of the beverages’ addictive nature.


Five white guys decided to blame alcohol for their bad decisions, including killing a person!
If you've seen the mug shots, you pretty much think they're all assholes.

I really want to get the transcripts of their testimony if this shit ever gets to court.
I want to hear how they're not responsible for their life's decisions and specifically how it's Jägermeister's fault they're criminals.

Is it slanderous to claim that a product FORCED you into a life of crime?

The state should punish those guys for being such worthless assholes and pulling crap like this..., execution! (sarcasm intended, or...no). Lol.

Yes, because somebody forced them to drink the alcohol and commit the crimes. Of course, every liquor company sends some minions that hunt down certain individuals and force them into a crime life.

Senseless lawsuits. People should start to get punished just for stupid lawsuits

I'm sure there are mechanisms that exist that would allow the courts to reject the case.

Of course, but just for pulling that crap out, people should get punished. They take time away from the justice with this bizarre alegations. Senseless lawsuits just increase the paperwork...ugh

LOl. I'd say that the majority of drinkers, alcoholics even, have never committed crimes or would.
"FACT: Alcohol is a factor in 40% of all violent crimes today". [link] I believe that too. Sure it's a factor. But what about the remaining 60%?

Maybe. It'll probably be a liquor store though. You don't have to tip a clerk for handing you your Jim Beam in a paper bag.

Depends on the suit. You can get cancer from second hand smoke...that wasn't really a decision of yours yet you face the consequences from a product someone sells that causes cancer.

this is what happens when you let the media companies, and lawyers get away with trying to ban things, and ridiculous law suits.

for the last time inanimate objects don't cause crimes, people do.

Guns don't cause shootings
neither do video games

lighters don't cause arson

personal computers don't cause cyber invasions

Sold oak, brass trimmed desks, nor fiendishly intricate leather chairs cause insider trading.

nor is smoking pot an excuse for being a lazy bum.

ferraris don't cause speeding


People should take responsibility for their own actions.

Actually, on one of those I think you may be wrong. From experience it can be very very difficult to keep the speed of a Ferrari as low as some speed-limits - a gearing ratio thing I am told.

more likely, you don't buy a ferrari to drive the speed limit ;), Junkies often try to rationalize their habbit.
