“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

That might require more oversight and larger government to keep track of all the bullshit.

I wonder when this lawsuit crazyness started in the States. We do not have all this crazy stuff in Spain, or we have some, but not like this.

Dunno, probably the 70s at least. Some areas are worse than others. It sometimes comes down to State laws.

It gives work to the lawyers and what the politicians normally are?. Lawyers, so there is not interest in changing this really. Sad, but true

Did alcohol also make them drink alcohol?
