since the hoodie guy had a gun, I suspect he was not supportive of the efforts of the crowds like the NRA that endorse people owning guns to protect themselves from robbers

Sounds kind of like a 2-guard gone wrong ... Dude! There's always D-2!

'You would kill over a pizza and a few bucks?'

You betcha!

If a thug confronted me with a handgun to rob me?

Only one of us is walking away!

And hopefully, it will be me and not him.

One of these days, a thug will make the mistake of going after a delivery driver with a conceal and carry permit.

I was robbed on a pizza delivery at a house on New Jersey St. in the 70s. It was a vacant house and the porch was dark. I knolcked on the door and then was pulled into the house and knocked around before they took my delivery wallet and my personal wallet. I had delivered pizzas for a couple of years with no incidents - with some of the places being pretty dark (curtains can be closed making a house look dark - many people forget to turn on a porch light). After my experience, I told my boss that I would not deliver if I could not tell immediately from the street that the address was occupied. Today with cell phones, that should be standard practice.

Tear down that entire area from Alabama west to Iowa between 23rd an 27th. Too much no good going on over there!

I would think a vacant building would raise a red flag for a pizza delivery man, Gee, I wonder where all the people are..........and no lights on?

Too bad pizza delivery guys don't conceal carry... problem would have been solved and tax dollars not wasted searching for and prosecuting this individual.
