REDFORD, MI - When James Wethers heard three gunshots around 11 p.m. Monday night, he looked outside and saw a frantic pizza delivery driver and a man face down on the driveway across the street from his Michigan home.

Redford Township police say the pizza delivery driver opened fire as he was being robbed by 20-year-old Tajuan Boyd.

Several years ago our son delivered pizzas in the hood. Glad he survived that.

Better to be unemployed than dead. Probably also did society a favor by saving the cost of a trial and incarceration.

Pizza delivery is a dangerous job.


That’s a pretty cool idea for a video game. “PIZZA GUY!”

Deliver hot pies throughout the city, some to good neighborhoods and some to bad neighborhoods. Combine elements of Grand Theft Auto and World of Warcraft!

Navigate traffic and various obstacles, defend against/fight off gangbangers and thugs, get the pizza to the customer on time. Failure to deliver or bringing a cold/damaged pie lowers your “life bar” while quick delivery gets you tips.

Earn money to upgrade/improve your weapons and vehicle.

I’m surprised this isn’t out for the X-Box or PS yet!

Why did the perp have to be out robbing pizza delivery drivers. Where’s all the “free shit” from Obunga?! I think ALL delivery drivers should be armed and trained. Pardon my seeming hardness, but that driver just spared us a potentially looong series of future robberies, half-assed trials, numerous incarcerations and possibly even a murder or so. The driver deserves a Good Citizenship Award from the community....and some atta’ boys from the pizza store. But dollars to dogpiles, they side with the “dear departed”!

Lucky dog. When I delivered pizzas it was to overweight middle-aged cheating couples at the sleazy hotel.

Good. One more piece of street trash exercised. One less to worry about with just a few million to go.

Fired or dead? I’ll take fired every day of the week but I would punch the mf’er that fired me right square in the face for being a corporate “yes man” ass.

I think it is a very good idea.

However, good ideas are relatively cheap.

The hard part is in the execution. Making a game of this could well be quite popular.

I would like to see one.

It really does seem a natural!

This happened less than a 1/2 mile away from me. My landscaper was telling me about it as it happened on his street. Said he,and wife saw it reported on local TV,then nothing else. Guess local media don't like the idea of Good American Citizens educating the local Hip-Hop Veloci-Raptors to the 2nd Amendment. ;)

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas has an in-game quest to deliver pizzas from a balless little Vespa scooter. Fun game.

Notes from other articles:

The robbers saw an unoccupied home, whose family was away, and called in the delivery to that address. A witness says that she saw two unknown men in a car and one asked her what time it was, and she thought it suspicious, shortly before the robbery went down.

The only Tajuan Boyd, of about the right age, from that part of Michigan, is seen on the Internet as an unimpressive high school football player. However this is unconfirmed.

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/10/24/police-make-3-arrests-in-shooting-incident-with-pizza-guy/

“Police have now made three arrests from alleged participants in that robbery.

“This incident comes amid calls in Detroit and surrounding suburbs to arm pizza delivery drivers. Last year, a Jets Pizza franchise in Dearborn announced it would no longer deliver to Detroit after dark following the shooting of a 19-year-old delivery driver.

“In August, a young Flint man convicted in the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man was sentenced to life in prison without parole.”

Pizza delivery is a dangerous job.
---------------------------------------

I delivered in a college town when I was younger. Only had one incident where a few frat-boys made some comments about how they felt they were "owed" the pizza. Being in NY, there was no gun involved, but a large physical presence (and flip blade, not drawn) was enough to back them down when they realized there would be a hefty price to pay for free pizza. I wouldn't want the job now unless CC was allowed...
