OMG, Amber alert for a non-white abductee!!!

Someone gets abducted and they have to freeze every single television station here to let me know about it. Surprisingly, I live about 2 blocks away from this address. Assuming that we're all supposed to avoid turning vigilante - I don't see what the point of this amber alert. But, it is killing my New Year's Buzz.

I don't need a freaking amber alert to tell me to be weary of 260 pound guys driving an old Chevy Caprice.

-- -------------------------

South Bend police have issued an Amber alert for a child they say was abducted earlier today.

Jeremiah Martin, an 8-month-old black male, was last seen at 4 p.m. at 424 N. Harrison St., South Bend, and is believed to be in extreme danger.

Police say the child was abducted at gunpoint by Kenneth Vanderaa, a 26-year-old white male who is 5'11", 260 pounds, with a shaved head and blue eyes. The suspect vehicle is a two-tone gray and silver possibly Chevrolet Caprice four-door sedan with possible partial Indiana plate 96 or 98 letter unknown 9987, which was last seen on Lincoln Way (U.S. 20) and is possibly en route to Gary, Ind. or Mishawaka, Ind.

The suspect should be considered armed & dangerous, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the South Bend Police Department at 1-888-58AMBER (1-888-582-6237).

Actually - I'd be pretty pissed off....... the Amber alert on the TV didn't point out anything except that there was an amber alert. The local TV station here didn't say anything either.

I had to go online myself to figure out what the hoopla was. Basically, they just took up the whole screen to scream "AMBER ALERT" and thassit.

If they actually took the time to issue the alert normally - I probably wouldn't have cared. But wasting resources just to display useless text is retarded.

Are you kidding me? It is an 8 month old who is with a man who could be armed and dangerous. It is not put out to make you "weary", but if you should see the vehicle you can notify the Police. This is a nation wide service that has helped recover numerous endangered children.

F*** the F.C.C.
