I was sound asleep and jumped out of bed thinking bad things as I reached for my bedside sidearm.

At the end of the day it’s about the kids safety so no animosity here.

Heck, let's require remote kill switches in all cars, so the police can make every car stop moving, so they can slowly drive around and look of this one car.

You seem to be fine with ANY response to save ONE CHILD.
You may not nave caught the undertone of sarcasm employed.

I got one recently that woke me up out of a sound sleep and I was pissed. Why do I have to suffer for other people's bad life choices?

The text was so absurd, and hit all the stereotypes so strongly that I actually took a screenshot because it just had to be some manner of offensive racist comedy.

I was up, and almost walking out the door, on my way to work, when it went off. Hurried up and shut it off, as to not wake up the family. Just as I shut mine off, I heard both of there phones going off. Lol.
What time do you get off work ? What time do you sleep. Start working 6 or 7 till 9 or 1030 every day and get back to me

It was a joke. But since you asked during the week I leave my house around 4:45 am, and if Iím lucky Iím home by 5:00pm. Some days, especially in the summer, all bets are off of when I might get home.
Then throw in a Saturday here and there, working those same hours. Been doing it for over 24 years now.

If someone tried to put that on Twitter, it would be flagged as 'violating community standards'.
I think the 'Chrysler 300 with large rims' was a nice touch to round out the picture.

Here's the response from my inquiry.

Thank you for your concern regarding the Amber Alert issued on October 16, 2020 by the Maryland State Police. The Amber Alert was activated at the request of the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

Usually, a delay in the Amber Alert activation, is due in part to investigative information being developed from the time the abduction occurred. Developing investigative information from victims/complainants during these traumatic incidents in which a child had been abducted/harmed are time sensitive to the recovery of the child, but each circumstance differs and may take an extend period of time due to injuries to the victim, the psychological impacts on the victim from involvement in a traumatic incident, and a multitude of other investigative factors.

Maryland’s Amber Alert activation plan is only activated when death and bodily injury is eminent. Without stating case facts, per the requesting department, we can only advise there were circumstances that warranted activation. The Maryland State Police uses due diligence when activating the Amber Alert. Amber Alerts had been requested twenty-one times during calendar year 2020 and only three had met the criteria for activation.

The Amber Alert is a state-wide activation system and cannot be activated in one county, hence, mobile phone providers have offered functions to Turn Off the alerts and/or offer Do Not Disturb functions on your phone, so that you are not inconvenienced.

Many Marylander’s are employed by companies that are 24-hour establishments and are extra eyes and ears for law enforcement during these critical times. Marylander’s work throughout early morning hours, rotating shifts, and as they traverse across the state, they are often in a position to see something and say something in an effort to assist law enforcement.

The Amber Alert in this instance worked and the abductor, who also received the Amber Alert, turned themselves in to the police and the child was recovered unharmed.

In closing, I would like to thank you for your email and for bringing this matter to the Department’s attention. The Department values its relationship with the citizens we serve. If you should have any additional questions regarding this matter please do not hesitate to contact the Maryland State Police.
