In the wake of the shooting, a Jets Pizza franchise in Dearborn ruled it will no longer deliver to Detroit after dark. Before the shooting, they sent two drivers to every nighttime Detroit delivery, one of whom was armed, Joan McKenna said.

Joan McKenna thinks any claims of racism are hogwash.

Maybe signs on the cars that say the driver is armed and dangerous.

Pretty common really. Lots of companies won’t deliver to certain neighborhoods after dark in a lot of cities.

Ha. Jets pizza already boycotted them. I wouldn’t deliver in the daytime, either. Of course I would not have a business anywhere near deeeetroit.

How about this good town car? It is a tad expensive and it would take a lot of pizzas but I would feel pretty comfortable in it cruising the urban jungles.

Pittsburgh has several areas that pizza deliverers don’t go at all, but sending an armed backup seems a bit much.

It seems more to do with “don’t shoot my freakin’ Pizza (delivery) Guy and expect me to keep sending him to your neighborhood!”

This falls under the rule, “Always be cool to the Pizza Guy.”

Dang straight. Back in the day he used to get a beer and a joint when he delivered to our place. Dog didn’t bark either. he knew who it was!

In the ‘burbs they will hire armed delivery people from the inner city and THEY will stick you up since the Pizza Co deprived them of their livelihood by not serving their neighborhoods anymore.

This happened before...the cities are in trouble when businesses decide the risk to life is greater than the reward of profit.

Chicago had best get rid of the racist gangs and the Mayor who encourages it, who are shooting up the streets or they are going to be Detroit.

If more businesses made this choice - the choice NOT to serve animals with the same respect given to respectable citizens - residents of Detroit who aren't thugs will start putting pressure on criminals. They can't do that now... this incentive - an acknowledgment criminals have taken over their neighborhoods might unite good people with the ones who want pizza and other services...

In inner city neighborhoods it's the innocent who are bullied by criminals. They're afraid to ‘snitch’ for fear of their lives. Because of that fear, criminals run the places... Every responsible business should refuse business in high crime areas - black or white. It's time for ‘natural consequences to start exerting pressure on lowlifes.
