If the teen is black, we will soon hear how he was such a nice kid who never did anything illegal.

In gun grabber lingo, the teen is “a child victim of gun violence.” I don’t need to remind you that when gungrabbers talk about “children” injured and killed by “gun violence”, nine out of ten times it’s some punk gettin’ what was coming to him.

Let me read the future.

Pizza guy gets fired
Pizza maker gets sued.
Grandmother tells us what a great kid Robinson was.
Father who the kid hasn’t seen in 5 years shows up for his part of the loot.

Too many lowlifes think they can call up and order a pizza, shoot the delivery person and eat the pizza. This is a good outcome.

The “armed” pizza delivery guy is long overdue. Too many times, these pizza companies tell their employees to simply give up the cash. Well, guess what, the employees have apparently had their fill of being robbed and their lives threatened.

For a while our place averaged about one incident a year. The ‘No Weapon’ policy contributed to that.

The cry for more "Workplace Safety" has already begun:

Shooting aftermath raises questions in employee self-defense, safety

This would be a story about either poor caliber selection, improper target acquisition or inadequate shot execution on the part of the Pizza Delivery "Person"

Just what is a "pizza delivery person", anyway? The only "persons" capable of delivering a pizza are either male or female.

That would make them "pizza delivery boy, man, girl or woman".

Use the damn language or it will abandon you.

I had a couple of fellas try to stop me while I was delivering Dominoes a few years back. I couldn’t carry something that could deliver 1500ft/sec so I sped at them at 45mph.

They moved.

“another “teen” succumbs to an armed citizen “

Let’s hope the pizza guy gets to keep his job.

Police: Pizza delivery person shot teenager during attempted robbery

Andrews was approached by two males, one who took the pizza from him and one who pointed a gun at him, police said. The teen who pointed a gun, identified as Jacob Robinson, demanded money and his cell phone.

Andrews gave Robinson an undisclosed amount of money and told Robinson his phone was in the back of his car. Instead of grabbing his phone, he grabbed his own firearm and fired several rounds at Robinson, hitting him at least twice, a media release said.

So, what's the problem?

Just hope the pizza delivery person is not lynched by the Black Ku Klux Klan like they are doing to George Zimmerman

Sorry, no "he's a good boy" stories with this perp.

"Pizza deliveryman Michael Andrews shot 15-year-old Jacob Robinson after Robinson demanded money and his cell phone at gunpoint."

I wonder if he took his money back?

Really! He should demand restitution for his expended ammo though. If he was using quality self-defense loads those ain't cheap.

Unfortunately the pizzas were trashed but that's the company's problem.

Hopefully the thug will die and his accomplice can be charged with murder when he is caught

“So, what’s the problem? “

First robber lived, second robber got away. Pizza guy needs better training.

Yeah, well, statistics show that citizens have a better hit rate than cops do.

There should be umpteen companies willing to hire this pizza delivery guy — even if it is for a security job.
