I'm listening to "Amber" by 311 right now because of this thread.

Fuck you. I had the shit turned off. I opted out and Verizon STILL sent this to everyone it seems. I don't really give a shit if some dumb bitch in Flint left her kid in a car at a gas station and some crack baby stole the car. You don't need to wake up half the fucking state.

Only if your point is Verizon is a piece of shit for waking up half the state because of something going on almost 2 hours away from people. I turned that shit off for a reason. I get enough 2am phone calls from work that are emergencies. I don't need Verizon sending me more shit.

Totally unrelated services. I pay for 911 service. I also pay for my cell phone and service. I don't want amber alerts screaming out of my phone at 1am for something clear over in Flint. The issue is I had already turned them off, but Verizon over rode my decision.

Why? I never opted into the service. I had it turned off on my phone. Yet, Verizon still sent me the alert. I simply don't want them. Why is that so fucking hard to understand. The fact that it was in Flint just makes it worse. If it was in Lansing it would be slightly less annoying. But, Verizon or the Flint police should not have the ability to over ride my decision to NOT get the alerts.

Well, gone on with your life and think whatever you want. I could really care less. I could also care less about the kid in Flint, his crack whore mom, or the dude that stole the car. I have enough in my own life to worry about.

so what you are really saying is that you are a selfish prick, only interested in yourself...beyond that everyone else can fukc off. No worries, I get it. Just don't complain when something bad happens to you or your loved one. I'm sure you know people with kids or may have kids of your own, so to avoid any future confrontation with them you should just go ahead and warn them that you think amber alerts are stupid and a waste of your time

I don't care about her either...but amber alerts don't work that way...it's about the child. On January 13, 1996, nine-year-old Amber Hagerman was abducted while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas. A neighbor who witnessed the abduction called the police, and Amber's brother, Ricky, went home to tell his mother and grandparents what happened. Four days after the abduction, a man walking his dog found Amber's body in a storm drainage ditch. Her killer was never found causing her homicide to remain unsolved. The alerts are broadcast using the Emergency Alert System that you pay for. Live your selfesh life, it's far more important that anyone could ever dream of. Just don't forget to tell everyone you know with kids, that you don't care if they get abducted and not to bother you if they do.

I just set a sleep rule that shuts off everything while I'm sleeping. I still get them in the daytime. I also set the rule to block emails, facebook notifications and calls from everyone but the mrs. I've slept pretty soundly so far.
