An important safety measure, or an overly judgmental policy?
A new policy put in place by a Dearborn Jet's Pizza has some people asking that question.
According to Fox News, the franchise's Warren Avenue location has announced that they'll no longer deliver to Detroit after dark. The decision was made after one of their delivery drivers was shot in the chest while taking a pizza to a home in the city, according to police.
Joan McKenna, mother of the delivery driver and owner of the Dearborn pizza shop, told Talk Radio 1270 that it appeared the shooter wanted to rob her 19-year-old son. When Tim McKenna attempted to flee, she said, the would-be robber shot him.
The Edsel Ford High School graduate and current Adrian college student survived, but was treated for a broken rib and punctured lung.
Normally, McKenna told Fox News, the drivers deliver in pairs. But that night, the other driver had left early.
Still, she said the incident was enough to change their policy entirely.
“When you want a pizza, you live in Detroit, you want it delivered after dark, thank the guy who shot my son, thank that guy,” McKenna said.
