In South Africa it must have seemed like Christmas to the looters that pounced on an over turned beer truck. The truck carrying a load of Heineken created a mob scene as it broke open and spilled beer all over the road.

The truck experienced brake failure on a steep hill and rolled over spilling the Heineken beer and shutting down the roadway for more than two hours. People can be seen calling friends, packing beer into crates, bags and anything they could use to it carry away.

When you watch the video you can see there is at least one cop on hand but he does nothing to anyone. In fact I think he is packing up beer to take home. I don’t blame him how in the world could he stop these people? The crowd got pretty big very fast and really over took the scene before anyone could do anything. I just wish that would happen near my house.
