I'm with Hancho on this one. Amber alerts are better than milk cartons.

Here's a thought you dumb fucking cunt, don't leave your 1-year old kid in your running car in the middle of fucking Flint! God Dam stupid people.

FLINT, Mich. (WXYZ) - An Amber Alert has been canceled for a 1-year-old boy taken from a gas station in Flint.
Michigan State Police say the boy has been located.
The boy's name is Deonte Dewight Keyes Jr.
The mother went inside the gas station and left the car running. A man jumped into the vehicle and took off with the boy inside.
Deonte is described as having brown eyes and black hair and was wearing a baby blue jacket, a gray/blue striped shirt, dark blue jeans, and dark blue Nike boots.
The Flint police say the suspect took off in a silver Chrysler Cirrus SLV with license plate # CJN4569.
The vehicle was last seen driving northbound on Omega from Hemphill Rd.

That doesn't read like the kid has been found. Was it cancelled because they figured out he's black?

You are a piece of shit if an amber alert bothers you. For all I care the police can go door to door in the middle of the night and wake all of our asses up. Getting a child back to its family is way more important than sleep.

It annoyed the hell out of me. Easy to turn off in message settings though. Did the Apple crowd get it as well?
