Smack dab in the middle of the freaking zoo we used to call civilization. Unfortunately, all ANYONE can do is listen to themselves type, duck the bullets, and hope that a trip to the gas station does not end in their death. This state has seen fit to disarm the law-abiding citizens so that the thugs will have no shortage of unarmed victims, the news will have no shortage of tragic stories, and the blogs will be filled by those with noisey keyboards.

When cigarettes are 6 bucks a pack, gas at almost 5 a gallon, food at peak prices and no jobs..This kind of thing will continue. Not really sure how to help the economy. It's a sad MESS...

This is sad. Here is a guy trying to make a living and he gets capped by thugs who are probably nothing more than hoodrats from Southeast DC that have probably been stealing and robbing since they came out of the womb. I hope for those places that still do home delivery will outfit their drivers with protection and turn the tables on the mooks who would rather steal and kill than work for it.
I agree. This is ridiculous. I've lost count of how many Chinese delivery men have been murdered making a delivery in the Metro area.

If the suspect is black which is mostly like the case then all this does is reinforce negative stereotypes about black people for the Asian community.

It's a sad day when a man working gets killed for a few dollars.

It's a shame no matter where it happens. No matter what race the victim or the shooter is....It's just sad.

Its a negative sterotype, because you will find, MOST, not all crimes done inside the beltway, ARE comittied by African American THUGS, who get offended if they are even mentioned that they are responsible. Just wait till someone starts bashing on this post... yet that VERY SAME person, or a member of their family, is the one packin heat & waitin to knock off a DOMINO's driver for his Fried Chicken & Watermellon pizza.

I have also lost count of how many delivery people have been shot. Personally I think businesses should stop deliveries in high crime areas -- if the people there cannot behave in a civilized fashion then don't do business with them. My prayers to the man and his family and friends. This was senseless and should not have happened.

Poverty, high gas prices and all the rest is not nor has it ever been an excuse for crime, especially not murder and rape. During the Great Depression times were much tougher and there was not a govt. safety net and yet the crime rate was much lower.

I remember a time that this sort of stuff was just in the movies. I used to watch the series, Lawman and Rawhyde when I was a kid. Shooting cars and setting them on fire only happened in Cambodia or Vietnam or it used to be that way. Not a misnomer anymore. Now lets look at the present and prospects for the future. A deliveryman being murdered during the course of a robbery? Felony-murder. It is bad enough that a person getting off a metrobus and creating mayhem on the outskirts but this is getting more personal because of things hitting close to home. Yes, I know that you are questioning Cathy Lanier's scorecard. Not to say that she cheated on the exams but I would say that she made the right choice in lobbying for the "National Guard to step in and help out". She is in way over her head with the issues of the "Trinidad neighborhood" and certain outside companies questioning the veracity of Lanier's campaign by conceding this to be a "civil rights issue". Come on! Give me a break! As John Stossel used to say on Channel 9. He used to be on Fox 5 before that or vise versa. To get to the point, Cathy Lanier is good but she is going to need help in dealing with the major issues of the Trinidad and other neighborhoods. Pure, plain and simple!

The crime on the D.C. streets are moving up to the P.G. County, Maryland areas. That is why the P.G. areas are getting bad. To add to the problem, the Langley Park criminals are helping the criminals coming up from D.C. and that is making the job more difficult for police.

well there is too much focus on the bad news about crime. Crime keeps cops, lawyers, psychologists, prison cooks, prison guards and others employed. Drug money is spent on clothes, cars, furniture and on sweethearts. Maybe even a little money is spent of children of crack parents, but only after enough crack is bought. Social workers bop bop about and play the welfare game with losers, most of them anyway. If crime stoped, where would all these people find jobs? It would be like stopping car wrecks and watching insurance companies suffer car insurance losses. No we suffer the bad side of crime and hope it stays out of our neighborhoods. Meanwhile the gun industry does a thriving business from fearful citizens not only arming themselves but also in replacing stolen guns. Crime good for you good for us unless you become a victim that we all benefit. Even pulling cops into high crime areas limits the time the cops spend on harrassment of citizens who might speed a little or spit on the sidewalk.

I lived in PG county for 14 years after I got out of the Army at Walter Reed. Moved to Camp Springs, my car windows busted 2x and stereo stolen. Then walking to my apt after a 3-11 shift and two thugs chasing me with something in their hand wrapped in a towel. Had to pull out my handy dandy pistol and they did a 180 and ran. Had enough of thugs so I move to Upper Marlboro nice area and i finally got some relaxation. Moved to Largo and car broke into twice and stereo stolen and other personals. Stole my neighbors car and it was found torched in DC. Had to be careful coming in after 3-11 shift because of robberies taking place in the complex. Moved to Mitchellville in nice residential area code to Bowie relaxed for two years. Then someone broke into next door neighbors house. Then the sniper shot little boy at school around the corner had to duck and dodge to get to work. Got the hell out of PG county back down south 5 years and now nothing but peace quiet no drama at all. I'm here to stay. Like paradise compared to PG.
PG County iis hell to live in. Too bad for that pizza guy. Can't even work and tend to your business without being a constant victim of crimes. Good-luck to all that live in PG. Be safe.

What a shame! That man was probably working hard to make a good life for himself and his family, trying to make an honest living, and he's murdered in cold blood by some piece of garbage who wants to live outside the law and get easy money. If someone is SO brazen to shoot a person in broad daylight to get a few dollars, hopefully he'll be caught as quickly as possible. And while I know it will never happen, it would be nice if, for punx like this, there would be public executions.(and if the punk is caught, you can bet your paycheck that his family will be on the 6:00 news saying what a wonderful boy he is, how he takes his granny to church every Sunday, how he'd NEVER kill anyone, but if he did, it was all the fault of the police because they were always harassing him, and blah, blah, blah)
Some of the people that often commit crime and hide from police often sleep in storage bins located on Lanham Lane but in the 7400 block. In a green shack located in a yard behind a yellow home in the 7400 block, some outsiders pick the lock to get in or climb through a window using a ladder to get in the side. They drink beer, whiskey and 2020 or thunderbird as well as smoke cigarettes, pot and marijuana. At night, they often use a neighbor's yard as a place to go to the bathroom. If they need to shower or do laundry, they pick the lock of a neighbor's home to go in when they are away to use the shower and wash their clothes. Somehow, they seem to get away with it. Some of the tenants are away for long periods of time and the squatters know that for some reason. The squatters look for cash laying around and they rummage through the kitchen for food if they are hungry. Some sleep in their beds if they find that the tenants are away for extended periods of time. It has been going on quite a lot over on Lanham Lane and near the park behind the main area.

The whole area needs to have an AC130 gunship fly over everynight shooting everything moving.

the biggest bunch of crap I've ever heard. Blaming the economy on this crime is like blaming silverware on someone's weight problem. I guess the weather is the next reason on your list? What an idiotic statement. Like another person noted, financial times have been far worse and there were no government handouts.

If they (the officials) aren't going to address the real causes then at least allow upstanding citizens who have to work in these areas to carry a concealed weapon to protect their life.

Its one thing when the criminal slime balls take out other slime balls, but it seems more often than not they are taking out good hardworking innocent people. It's time to take a stand against this scum.

Wait wait wait wait.....PG County, Maryland is AFFLUENT? Where?

Ah, nevermind. Affluence and thuggery are NOT mutually exclusive. Just flip on MTV and you'll see that first hand.

This county has been on a very steady downturn since the early 1970's. The southern portion of the county has primarily become Little Eastover.

Shame, too. We've produced some pretty awesome people. No the county goes the way of the Capital Center and Landover Mall...or should I say Iverson Mall?

Sad state of affairs, people. Sad.
