“Law & Order” actor Ice-T reports that he almost shot a not-in-uniform Amazon worker delivering a package to his home:
Message To Amazon: Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries.. Maybe they should wear a Vest with AMAZON DELIVERY on it….. I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night…. Just sayin.

Um, yes. Amazon, please buy vests, at the very least, for these contractors:
When your executives don't really think about the consequences of their actions you end up with Ice T nearly shooting one of your gig economy workers. https://t.co/vvxFmuxLGN

Dave Clark, who lists himself as “SVP Operations @Amazon” agrees:
Just sayin…thanks for the suggestion. We MF’ing love you and our drivers. Lots of innovations coming on this and many that already exist to help you track your package and delivery on a map. Thanks for being a customer.

And Amazon Help is on the case:

Maybe this will lead to changes?
Drivers have been making their own shirts and stickers to put on their cars that say Amazon flex to avoid issues/suspicion.

And despite the seriousness of what went down, there were jokes because this is Twitter after all:
You’d be the Amazon PRIME suspect ?

And we hope to see this next season on one of the many “Law & Order” shows:
Sounds like a solid red herring for an upcoming episode of Law and Order. https://t.co/NKvT6gnhyC
