I thought this was America

Got this story of a beer run gone awry via Jason's Facebook page:
One man’s treasure is another man’s trash.

This was true for two city employees who were alerted to hundreds of cases of recently expired beer dumped in the city landfill.

On April 1, N.H. Scheppers Distributing Co. of Columbia dropped off 1,500 cases of expired beer at the landfill. The unusually large load consisted mostly of cans of Budweiser and some Michelob Ultra, said Scheppers President Joe Priesmeyer, and was delivered in two shipments.

The first half was destroyed by landfill crews upon delivery. The second load, roughly 700 cases, remained intact.

Margrace Buckler, the city’s human resource director, said after the second load was dropped off, two employees of the city’s Solid Waste Division came to the site with a city-owned pickup and loaded up as much beer as they could carry away — about 50 cases.

Buckler said it is likely that at least one landfill employee played a role in the matter.

“Someone needed to tell them that it was there,” she said. “The assumption is that someone made a phone call.”

Suspicion didn’t arise until a week later when rumors spread, Buckler said. Management looked at security tapes and saw the city-owned vehicle entering the landfill empty and leaving with the beer.

The two employees were confronted Monday. One resigned, and the other awaits a meeting with Director of Public Works John Glascock and could face disciplinary action. Their names are not being disclosed.

What??? The day we can't rescue discarded beer from a city landfill without losing our jobs is the day Obama has truly destroyed America's freedom with his socialist beer policies. Teabaggers unite! To the barricades!
