Hazard Pay for Pizza Delivery Drivers?
It's open season on pizza delivery drivers in South Minneapolis it seems. From December 12th 2006 to today there have been 7 drivers robbed, some at gunpoint. One Pizza Hut location has had 3 of their drivers robbed.

Is this a symptom of our economy? A lack of respect for the working Joe? Or just crimes of opportunity with maybe an inside twist? It seems odd that so many robberies have been committed in such a small area.

From now on, many of the city's pizza delivery folks have said they will not approach unlit houses, and even ask customers to watch for them as an added safety measure.

The Star Tribune ran a short story on this today but I'm sure we'll see more in the future since these parasites have found it an easy way to make a few bucks.
