More people are complaining about Amber Alerts than assisting in finding missing children
Thursday’s multiple Amber Alerts have led to more people calling in to 911 to complain than to assist in finding the two-year-old girl who was abducted by her father Wednesday evening, according to the Toronto Sun’s Graeme Gordon.
“There were approximately 100 calls in the 911 queue,” explains Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook, adding “over forty were confirmed to be from people complaining. One woman in particular advised that the only way the Amber Alert ‘problem’ was going to stop would be to flood 911 with calls, she then called back a number of times.
