Ice-T, whose real name is Tracy Lauren Marrow, said he came close to shooting an Amazon delivery driver.

The Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actor said that he had mistaken the driver for an intruder and now he is suggesting that Amazon make their employees wear uniforms.

“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,” Clark tweeted.

I get that, but it's still kind of unsafe? The same way Uber/Lyft drivers have a sign provided for their own cars, something like that should given to you by the company so there aren't any misunderstandings.

This is a genius, common sense solution to a real thing! They owe you a consulting check if they adopt it.
