Stop killing Pizza Deliverymen!

They are our best friends when we are lazy but hungry.

STOCKTON—

A pizza deliveryman was shot and killed after a delivery in Stockton.

The Domino’s driver had just delivered a pizza along Sutter Street near Miner Avenue and got back in his car when he was approached by two men.

Officers say the men opened fire on the car, hitting the deliveryman. He was able to drive about two blocks to get away from the shooters.

Homicide investigators found him dead inside the car, which had hit a parking meter and stopped. He had a gunshot wound to his upper body.

Investigators say robbery was not a motive for the shooting, and that the shooters did not take anything from the deliveryman.

Cops have not released the deliveryman’s name or age at this time.

They get shot, robbed and killed all the time because they are easy victims. Kill whoever but don't kill the guy who brings the FOOD.
That's my ode to pizza delivery, apparently one of the most dangerous jobs in the states.

I guess it's ok to kill pizza deliverywomen?

THAT'S DISCRIMINATION!

That story made me feel sick. So senseless. My heart goes out to all his other delieveries, who must have sat around for hours wondering when their pizza was going to come. It never did. *choke*

Snitches get stitches

Medical pot user turned in by pizza delivery man

The Associated Press
Published: Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011 - 6:40 pm

DENVER -- A Colorado man who got a visit from police after a pizza delivery driver smelled marijuana at his home is getting free pizza from a rival restaurant.

Frederick Smith says police searched his home in Aurora after a Papa John's International Inc. driver smelled marijuana there last week. The driver reported a child was in the home at the time.

Smith told Denver TV station KUSA-TV that he's a registered medical marijuana user. Papa John's has said it stands by its employee.

One of its Denver-based rivals, Sexy Pizza, said Thursday that it would give Smith one free pizza monthly until Colorado voters decide a proposed 2012 ballot initiative that would legalize marijuana for recreational use.

Sexy Pizza says it'll extend the offer for life if voters pass the initiative.

Re: Stop killing Pizza Deliverymen!

I'm not sure I'd want to order from "Sexy Pizza". Especially the white sauce.

Sexy Pizza just sounds "ick". I, frankly, don't want my pizza sexy. I'd order an Amish pizza if I could.

Sounds hairy


Actually, looking at their website, they look look a regular small pizza joint. Their menu shows that they are "420 friendly" too...

I would suggest staying away from the hand-tossed dough.

I used to order their Meat Lovers, but they always hide the Salami under the cheese.

No, no surprise there. But what I find shocking is that Stockton has parking meters!?!

They only perk up after running through the hot oven.

Re: Stop killing Pizza Deliverymen!

I delivered pizza when I was younger in a place considered pretty ghetto.

The worst I had to deal with was a bunch of teenagers hitting my car as I drove slowly through a neighborhood.

Why didn't your car hit back?

Seriously. And that goes for everyone. I'm no hippie, nor a pot smoker. But I had a friend who lit one up at my apartment once. A neighbor called the police and I had a totally stupid 10PM conversation with two cops (who probably didn't want to bother me).

I think that pot is lame. But some people think that it leads to piano playing, dancing and DEATH!

Maybe it was a VW. They are peaceful vehicles.

Anyone who works for Domino's gets what's coming to him.
