    The story says early Sunday morning. What pizza place delivers pizza after midnight on a Saturday in Braddock? You’re asking to get robbed.

    The police should just let people do whatever they want. When the police try to stop someone or have to use force or a taser they get nothing but grief, and lawsuits…let people do what they want!
