    You know…The AMBER alert is a great idea and all…
    But i am sick and tired of getting woke up once a week at 3-4 in the morning because some dirt bag is have a domestic moment…or some crack head cant find her baby….or someone lies and uses it as a baby finder…or…or..or.
    The system is being abused and over used.
    Ever hear about the boy who cried wolf? its getting to that point..
