Debate about the use of frequent emergency alerts sent to cell phones

In an effort to get it out of the other thread, here's a new one.

Though I don't think the other thread was the place to debate it, I do agree with King that alerts going out one minute apart are completely excessive. It would make more sense to send it only once unless there is new information available.

The timing sounds like it was also pretty annoying. I'd be pretty irritated if I were woken up at 6am with an Amber Alert. Chances are, I wouldn't have seen the girl while lying in bed. Or at least, if I did, I'd have bigger issues on my hands than annoyance with my cell phone.

Eh, I think it's the timing of it all. If it hadn't been in a thread that was so emotionally involved, I doubt there'd be such a ruckus.

Do I think it's a big deal for people to live with an alert here and there if it'll help save a life? Certainly not. But do I think that the way it was handled could potentially damage the system's usefulness? Absolutely.

New question: How is the Amber Alert System able to determine if you are in bed asleep or working the late shift and on your way home?

It doesn't matter the time of day or night. If a child is in danger then people need to listen up and take action to search their immediate vicinity if possible to help locate the child. It is the LEAST you could do to help save a life!

If it were my child I would want everyone out of bed and searching and frankly I could care less if it interupted anyones attempt to get rest. If you saved my childs life then I would owe you mine!!!

I doubt when the Amber Alert system was created authorities were worried that someone would be "bothered." Especially when that is exactly the purpose of the system to attempt to get help from the public. Maybe some on here think that should be left up to the police.........oh wait, some on CP hate cops too.

Again, that's all well and good, but we're talking about an issue that is driving some people to turn off alerts entirely. Rather than "I could care less if it interupted anyones attempt to get rest" we should be asking "How much will this hurt all future kids' chances by being so intrusive."

In email marketing, there's a balance between providing useful information that people want and overwhelming them with so much information that they eventually bail out entirely. This is the same thing, and those that keep acting like this is a problem individuals need to just get over are missing the entire point.

If you lived in Springfield you would expect everyone in Kansas City and Topeka to jump up and start searching for your child?

You are obviously misunderstanding the purpose of an Amber Alert. As I mentioned earlier, the idea of it is to make people aware of the situation and to be on the lookout, not organize a nationwide manhunt.

Nobody is going to do that. The purpose of amber alerts isn't to get a bunch of people out driving around aimlessly.

So you're suggesting people shut their phones off religiously every night so that they don't have to get an alert once a year or so?
