    Pizza Deliveryman Shot And Killed During Robbery In Belmont - cbs3.com

    I remember some controversy years ago because some delivery people were refusing to go certain places. My question is: Is that discriminatory?

    Private sector. Doesn't matter whether its discriminatory or not, they are entitled to either deliver or not deliver as they deem appropriate. Personally, if I owned a pizza business there - I wouldn't ask my staff to deliver in that area.

    no one should be forced into a violent situation....if the area is violent then they have to drive out for their pizza...no one should be risking thier lives

    No it is not. We have a section of town that is renowned for robberies and drugs, You can not get a pizza delivered there.

    Its a private business and they are allowed to define which areas they will deliver in. A taxi cab is different because they have to register and receive a permit. The areas they cover may be a condition of that permit

    What about service people like plumbers and other contractors? If they are licensed by the state, do they have to service dangerous neighborhoods? Just curious.

    No and no. This happened a few years ago in a neighborhood in Little Rock. Of course, the neighborhood was a black neighborhood and people cried 'discrimination', but a man died. Even the US Postal Service had to discontinue service to a neighborhood because somebody was shooting at the mailmen. Sorry if someone feels this is discrimination or racism, but I wouldn't expect people to put their lives on the line for a pizza.

    I'm more concerned as to why we allow violent neighborhoods to develop than whether pizza delivery should be mandatory in them.
