What the **** is wrong with people? This makes me sick to my stomach.

I hope they find her unharmed. :(

I know this is ****ed up to say, but Amber Alert is pretty shitty. It just ends up annoying people more than it helps. Sending 500 text messages an hour does nothing to help the situation IMO. It just makes people talk about getting annoying texts instead of talking about the missing child.

Yea, this is the first time I've ever gotten an alert sent to my phone. The alerts took over TV too, changing the channel wasn't an option.

JFC. If it were your daughter, you'd want the authorities to do everything they possibly can to save her life. So you got annoyed? Boo ****ing hoo.

Selfish prick.

How am I being selfish? Annoying people is detrimental to what they're trying to do. When you have more people talking about getting text messages every minute rather than the content of the text message, there's a problem. Add to the fact that the ringtone for it is a siren and you have a recipe not for alertness, but for annoyance.

holy shit, you seem very detached from humanity and reality. do you work in a morgue or something? I live in springfield, and the amber alert was very upsetting to my coworkers.

Here's where I hate our laws sometimes. Get this ****er in a cell and start cutting off parts until he talks.

Clearly it worked as it got tips on the truck that was in the alert.

I never said that sending the texts was bad, I'm merely talking about the frequency of them.
