    I was mildly perturbed when my phone went off at 3 and 4 in the morning, but it's nothing a nice wank couldn't fix.

    When Amber alerts first started, they relied on local TV and radio stations to get the word out, and as the time increased from the time of abduction, it would go to county, then state notifications, and on up the chain until they either found the kid or memorialized them on the back of a milk carton. Now, some little shit gets snatched in East Weewaw, Wisconsin, and they blow up my cell and cable 400 miles away. Why the fuck do I need to know? I'm not going to look out the window and see the Flash booking it with the kid, and if I did, what the fuck am I supposed to do except point and say "they went thataway."

    I think the thing about Amber alerts, is who the fuck actually memorizes what the car looks like or anything like that?
    Even the most model of citizens doesn't get an amber alert and think "I'm gonna be on the look out in case of the one in ten thousand chance I actually run into it"

    Are amber alerts named after the color or someone named Amber who got abducted, raped, then murdered?

    We have Amber Alerts here too in the States, but from what I know there's a series of necessary steps required to have them announced, and they can only be for specific kidnapping, so that paranoid parents can't report their kids as missing when they come back from Sunday school a few minutes too late.

    Yeah, it's the police that actually gather the data and make the suggestion an alert be called, and it's a pretty high bar. Obviously seeing someone snatch a kid and drive off really quickly or a history of antagonism between divorced couples will definitely kick it up the ladder a bit.
